Rick Owens is a master of subtle overstatement. The legendary Arizona Sandal is now showcased in stunning cowhide. Owens chose to extend the straps of the sandals, allowing them to almost brush the ground; this detail creates a playful, feather-like lightness while retaining the straps’ adjustable functionality. The result is a subtly theatrical look that is flattering and uncluttered. Owens’ choice of the Arizona singled out BIRKENSTOCK’s most iconic style, which has acquired legions of dedicated male and female fans over the decades.
Now Owens has enhanced the classic with a hallmark twist that adds the perfect avant-garde touch.
Anatomically contoured cork/latex footbed
Insole: smooth Full Exquisite leather footbed, tone on tone
Insole features an embossed “Rick Owens” detail

The footbed liner and outer edge of the footbed of BIRKENSTOCK Exquisite models are wrapped in very soft and supple nappa leather.
Insole: Nappa leather
Nappa leather is a high-quality and very supple smooth leather. Nappa leather is very easy to shape, so it is a very good material for lining the footbed.
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.
