The Stalon is BIRKENSTOCK’s version of a robust Chelsea boot. Here, typical Chelsea boot elements like side elastic panels on the understated shaft and a loop at the back have been combined with a solid-looking yet surprisingly light sole made from synthetic materials and moisture-wicking microfiber lining. The upper is made from high-quality nubuck leather that boasts a natural, rustic appearance.
- Anatomically shaped footbed
- Upper: nubuck leather
- Footbed lining: smooth leather
- Sole: light sole made from synthetic materials
- ”Made in Portugal”
Nubuck leather has a gently buffed surface with no grains. As with velvet, brushing the surface of nubuck leather displaces the fibers and leaves a visible mark. Nubuck leather is very sensitive to moisture and color, and it therefore needs to be waterproofed.
Insole: Real Leather
The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
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.
