Until you have tried Birkenstock you may not get what they are about! They are just ridiculously comfortable.
The unisex Milano now comes in an elegant leather version. High-quality materials and excellent craftsmanship were our top priorities when making these extravagant sandals. The upper is made from cozy, glove-soft nubuck leather.Comfort has always been paramount at BIRKENSTOCK.
These sandals combine a perfect fit with outstanding design, with the unique closure sure to turn heads. The full-length upper can be adjusted to the shape of the wearer’s feet using two ball-shaped "cartridge closures” in a subtle shade of gold in combination with a contrasting leather loop featuring an embossed logo. Thanks to the shape and positioning of the wide straps, the balls of the feet are covered. The adjustable heel strap offers secure grip.
The anatomically shaped original BIRKENSTOCK cork-latex footbed is lined in high-quality napa leather, ensuring pleasant comfort that is gentle on the skin. In fact, the comfort level is boosted by the flexible EVA outsole with classic BIRKENSTOCK bone profile, which enables a rolling motion that is good for feet and body. Guided by the principle of "urban natural,” the Milano sandal combines a natural modern style with outstanding comfort.

The heart of all models is the original BIRKENSTOCK footbed. The construction, which has been thought out to the smallest detail and makes it feel like you're standing in sand, helps your feet feel as comfortable as possible for hours on end. This supports health and promotes wellbeing.
Deep Heel Cup
The very deep molding in the heel area supports the foot tissue and holds the heel bone firmly in its natural position. This provides the foot with nearly as much support when it is in a sandal as when it is in a closed shoe.
Activates the calf muscles, stabilises the back of the foot and improves gait and coordination.
Interior And Exterior Longitudinal Arch Supports
The arch supports that run alongside the sides of the footbed surround the tarsal bones inside and out. This gives the foot the stability it needs when it takes a step.
Transverse Arch Support
The support that runs through the middle of the footbed stabilizes the metatarsal bone. In this way, the transverse arch support helps ensure that the foot has a naturally straight and solid stance.
There are raised indentations at the front of the footbed near the toes. Thanks to the toe grip the toes remain loose and spread out in their natural position. The indentations also support the natural rolling motion of the toes.
The footbed is drawn up especially high at the front. As a result, the high footbed edge protects the toes during the rolling motion of the foot.
