Rick Owens is a master of subtle overstatement. For the Madrid, the ultimate classic of BIRKENSTOCK’s minimalist design, Owens chose to extend the straps, allowing them to almost brush the ground while retaining full adjustability. Elegance is added by the premium smooth leather of the sandal; butter-soft yet rugged with a glossy, uniquely textured finish, it guarantees unique comfort in wear. The result is a subtly theatrical look with sophistication in every 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.
