With its eye for refined materials and detail the exclusive 1774 Collection celebrates the essence of BIRKENSTOCK’s identity: the cork/latex footbed, entirely wrapped in premium leather, creates an unprecedented feel of luxury; the newly developed, ultra thin leather sole promises flexibility and longevity, while the uniquely patterned PU areas guarantee anti-slip. With its delicate details such as the minimized and color-coordinated buckle with a fabric feel coating, the sandal strikes with even more sophistication.

The natural leather that we use is mostly smooth leather, in some cases tumbled leather. This type of leather has many special characteristics, such as breathability, adaptation to the shape of the foot and durability.
Insole: Natural leather
Natural leather can be recognized by its untreated surface. BIRKENSTOCK purposely does not treat surface grains and other characteristic features. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 millimeters as upper material.
Footbed material: Cork
Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushioning.
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a high-quality, very light, elastic material with extremely good cushioning. As a result, it smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned.
