Does Birko Flor smell?

The birko-flor is very soft, but it also definitely holds onto sweat/smell waaay more than the leather or nubuck uppers do.

Does Birkenstock use real leather?

The upper material is made of real leather. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 mm for the upper material. Vegan BIRKENSTOCK products are completely free of animal components.

How long should my Birkenstocks last?

In case you need proof: A deep dive into some online forums about Birkenstocks confirms that many people have owned theirs for years, and the longest period of time I came across was 15 years.

Can Birko Flor get wet?

Many of our customers think that their Birkenstocks will get ruined if they get wet once or twice in the rain, and this is generally not the case. If you do get caught in the rain in your Birks, fear not! Simply dry them in a shaded place away from any heat sources.

How do you clean Birko Flor?

For Birko-flor and birkibuc uppers, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth. Try soap and water to remove stubborn stains. Please bear in mind that any cleaning or treatment can change the look and finish of the materials.

Is Birko Flor as good as leather?

It does seem that the Birko-Flor is ever so slightly softer than the leather. As such, they don’t rub harshly against my feet at first as did the leather. The classic suede footbed is the same used with the leather uppers and will require a break-in period of several weeks as part of the foot molding process.

Is Birko Flor good?

The Birko-Flor is holding up great!! still looks just like the day I got them, so if you are super into the old leather look, I wouldn’t recommend the Birko-Flor. It’s very strong material though and comfortable as well. Took about a week of wear for them to break in and feel perfect for my foot.

Which is better Birkibuc or Birko Flor?

The Birko-Flor is mostly smooth and shiny; all the fun, more fashion-y (white and black patent, etc.) Birks are Birko-Flor. Birkibuc is made to look like nubuck, so if you’re looking for a vegan alternative with a leather look (girls and guys), that’s the way to go.
