A strap, a buckle and a contoured cork footbed are simply, but masterfully, combined to create the original Birkenstock sandal - the Madrid. This simple, iconic slide is still the purest expression of the minimalist tradition that guides Birkenstock design to this today.

Birko-Flor with a patent finish is made of easy-to-care-for and hygienic PVC, which has been lined on the inside with a soft, breathable layer of fleece. The surface has been coated with a layer of patent leather. This high-quality material is very gentle on the skin and comfortable.
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.
