The BIRKENSTOCK Madrid is a veritable classic that delights the world of fashion with its minimalist design. As part of our Crafted Rivets collection, this model features decorative metal rivets which are unnoticeable when the shoe is worn thanks to an elaborate production process that makes them penetrate the leather firmly, but not deeply. It’s quite an eye-catcher! The upper is made from high-quality nubuck leather that boasts a natural, rustic appearance.

Upper material: Nubuck leather
Nubuck leather is the result of a gentle buffing of the top-grain layer of the hide. It is soft to the touch and develops a beautiful patina over time.
Insole: 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.
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.
