The BIRKENSTOCK Rio model is the classic kids’ shoe. Designed back in the 1970s, it has been a laid-back summer companion for generations of children ever since. 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 – ensure that the shoe is a perfect fit for every foot and that it gives active kids firm support with every step they take. Gaps on the side of the front strap ensure that kids’ feet get plenty of fresh air on hot days. The ultra lightweight, light-colored EVA sole is extremely flexible. The classic BIRKENSTOCK bone profile has been reduced in size, enabling an optimum rolling motion for the feet and bodies of active kids. The upper is made from skin-friendly cork. The high-quality natural material picks up on the fashionable pastel look. The underside is fitted with a highly soft and skin-friendly layer of fleece and therefore cozies up to the skin. Thanks to its upbeat multicolored design, the high-heeled sandal can be combined with a variety of summer outfits.

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.
