This T-bar sandal from BIRKENSTOCK oozes girlish chic. With the Abilene model, the classic kids’ shoe has not only been given a stylish new twist, but it offers exceptional comfort too. This is due to the soft smooth leather (or nubuck leather, metallic leather) that has been tested for harmful substances and that wraps around the foot like a second skin. The padded heel section protects the foot while kids are playing. The wide hook-and-loop straps above the instep prevent the shoes from coming off in the heat of the action. And when temperatures hot up, the two cut-out sections on the sides keep feet feeling fresh. This BIRKENSTOCK T-bar model is comfy on the inside, too. A genuine leather lining and the removable, anatomically formed original BIRKENSTOCK cork-latex footbed make this shoe a much-loved companion of active, fashion-conscious girls. The flexible retro sole in genuine rubber has a non-slip effect and keeps up with all kids’ activities.

Upper: 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.
Insole: Real Leather
The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
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.
Because of its high elasticity rubber is very well suited for outsoles. Thanks to this property it supports the natural rolling motion of the foot. Rubber is also very robust and has good cushioning.
