The BIRKENSTOCK Zurich has plenty to celebrate. After all, it’s the sandal’s 50th anniversary this year. It’s no coincidence that the Zurich has become a classic with must-have potential. It combines the stability of a closed-toe shoe with the lightness of a sandal and is popular in equal measure among both men and women. Although closed at the sides, this version is open at the toes and heel to ensure the feet get enough fresh air. Thanks to two straps with gold-colored metal buckles, the shaft can be adjusted to feet of all shapes. Just as it has always done, BIRKENSTOCK attaches the utmost importance to natural and smooth materials. The velvety soft suede originates from European tanneries. Retro feeling on the sole and footbed: just like in the 1960s, the ergonomically shaped cork-latex footbed comes with an orange lining. The ultra lightweight, flexible EVA outsole – which appears in the original color of beige with a classic BIRKENSTOCK bone profile – ensures a high level of comfort and is gentle on the skin. It possesses excellent shock-absorbent properties, ensures a cushioning gait that is easy on the joints, and supports the natural rolling motion of the feet. BIRKENSTOCK shows plenty of attention to detail on the packaging alone. A special shoe box, seal, shoe bag and informative booklet have been produced for the Zurich anniversary version.

Textile is a flexible material which is produced by weaving yarn or threads. It can be printed, dyed and perfectly combined with other materials.
Microfibre is a skin-friendly material which is soft and yet tear-resistant.
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.
