A classic at its best! Comfort, design, and consummate craftsmanship all go hand in hand on the BIRKENSTOCK Saunders, an elegant lace-up low shoe. The understated form is accentuated by the use of high-quality napa leather (or patent leather), with comfort paramount on this model. The expert craftsmanship is reflected in both appearance and functionality. This Derby shoe features a full leather lining, with the non-slip and highly flexible rubber sole guaranteeing a soft step. Thanks to the four-hole lacing section, the shoe can be adapted to the shape of the wearer’s feet. It goes without saying that it comes with the anatomically shaped, removable original BIRKENSTOCK cork-latex footbed, ensuring unbeatable wearer comfort. But it is also suitable for use with the wearer’s own personal insoles. The BIRKENSTOCK Saunders is a shoe that gives years of pleasure and that can be combined with many different outfits.

Upper material: Natural leather
The natural leather that we use is mostly smooth leather, in some cases tumbled leather. This type of leather has many special characteristics, such as breathability, adaptation to the shape of the foot and durability.
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.
Because of its high elasticity rubber is very well suited for outsoles. Thanks to this property it supports the natural rolling motion of the foot. Rubber is also very robust and has good cushioning.
