Less is more! The consciously clean design of the BIRKENSTOCK Illinois sneakers impresses on account of its dynamic and understated lines. Ultra soft napa leather that has been tested for harmful substances (or a mix of mesh and suede) makes this lace-up low shoe your feet’s best friend. The shoe comes with a full leather lining. The removable original BIRKENSTOCK cork-latex footbed offers unparalleled comfort. What’s more, the sneakers can be worn with other insoles. Subtle BIRKENSTOCK branding on the sole and the two top eyelets ensure a highly distinctive appearance.

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.
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.
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.
