The BIRKENSTOCK Rio model is the classic kids’ shoe. Designed back in the 1970s, it has been a healthy and laid-back summer companion for generations of children ever since. These sandals leave nothing to be desired in terms of style, either –and are stunningly glamorous in their shimmering metallic look with python print. Note: The pattern can vary as the print is based on a natural snakeskin pattern.

Birko-Flor® is a skin-friendly, tear-resistant and easy-to-care-for synthetic material which is exclusively used by BIRKENSTOCK.
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.
