The BIRKENSTOCK Rio is a classic kids’ shoe. Designed back in the 1970s, it has been a laid-back summer companion for generations of children ever since. The sandal has been stylishly reinterpreted with an all-over Mickey Mouse pattern. The black-and-white Mickey Mouse heads in different sizes are the height of fashion and form a camouflage-like pattern. This successful model – with its anatomically formed original BIRKENSTOCK cork-latex footbed – boasts two adjustment options. Thanks to individually adjustable metal buckles, two straps – one in the ankle/heel area and one over the instep – help ensure that the shoe is a perfect fit for every foot and that it supports active kids with every step they take. The upper is made of skin-friendly, easy-clean Birko-Flor®. Thanks to an elaborate coating, the high-quality synthetic material is extremely abrasion-resistant and durable. The underside is fitted with a highly soft and skin-friendly layer of fleece and therefore cozies up to the skin. Gaps on the sides ensure that kids’ feet get plenty of fresh air on hot days. The ultra lightweight EVA sole is flexible. The classic BIRKENSTOCK bone profile has been reduced in size, enabling an optimum rolling motion for kids’ feet.

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.
