Cape Town (South Africa), 7 February 2023 – A love affair dating back almost 250 years, best describes the relationship that so many have, and have had, with BIRKENSTOCK. The attraction starts with a single layer of cork and runs through the many layers of craftsmanship that provides unparalleled comfort and timeless style.

With the original BIRKENSTOCK footbed featured in every model, wearers enjoy the most ergonomically comfortable experience. Each step is supported by premium quality, sustainably sourced materials that balance form and function.This February, BIRKENSTOCK introduces the stylish Nubuck Big Buckle Collection to its family. A style which marries an amplified buckle with soft, premium Nubuck leather in seasonal colourways.

The Nubuck Big Buckle Collection features the Arizona (R2 999) in beryl and classic black. The single-strapped Madrid (R2 699) is crafted in orchid, yomo lilac, black, and the newest colourway, dove grey. Also in dove grey, is the Nubuck Big Buckle Buckley (R3 599), a moccasin that is instantly recognisable as a BIRKENSTOCK original, thanks to its exposed cork footbed.
