The BIRKENSTOCK Medina is a variation on the classic Gizeh. The thong sandal has two straps that merge with one another to give it a sturdy look and function. The upper is made from the skin-friendly, hard-wearing synthetic material Birko-Flor®. Here, the sophisticated interplay of contrasts and material gives the classic model a new look which could almost be mistaken for real leather.

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.
