The Kano model combines the anatomically shaped design of the original BIRKENSTOCK footbed with an additional latex heel cushion and an air-cushioned polyurethane sole. The adjustable heel strap prevents the back of the foot from slipping and provides additional lateral support in combination with the two instep straps. The material offers lasting flexibility, is incredibly robust and is easy to maintain.
