Natural Oiled Leather Upper / Classic Footbed - Suede Lined Has a visible grain and naturally occurring colour irregularities that are not removed in order to preserve the matt surface.
The BIRKENSTOCK Boston is a practical classic that can easily be worn all year round. The Boston has a legendary status thanks to its sophisticated, individual design. Slip them on and you're off! The Boston clog is equipped with a strap and buckle that can be adjusted across your instep– and thus provide a perfect fit. The anatomically shaped footbed and roomy toe box makes them comfortable to wear creating a pleasant environment for the entire foot. These features make the clog a comfortable companion, whether indoors or out.
Oiled leathers are designed to appear stressed and rustic looking. Leather conditioner will minimise this look. A lot of this occurs when the shoes are in transit as the paper rubs against the shoes and the shoes themselves jostle one another in the box creating scratches or scuffs on the leather. This can be worked out using your fingertips. The leather can appear dryer(lighter) in patches where the oil has dispersed or darker where the oil has settled. When you bend the straps or move the leather the colour will change frequently showing up crackly as the oil disperses.
We use and recommend Kelly's Cork Renew to protect and preserve the cork footbeds.
