4 Ways to Refresh and Protect Your Birkenstock Sandals

All products featured are part of the Birkenstock Cork Care Kit, sold on our website.

Birkenstock sandals can be your go-to for warm weather. Whether you just ordered your first pair or you bought them years ago, these products and tips will help keep your Birkenstock sandals your go-to for years to come. 

Utilize Cork Sealer

Your Birkenstock shoes come with a coating of sealer along the exposed cork to prevent the cork from drying out. You can utilize cork sealer if the cork begins to look dry. It will protect the cork from the elements, allowing you to adventure, work and play without worrying about the integrity of your shoes. 

Try to Avoid Extreme Heat and Unnecessary Water

Birkenstock shoes, similar to other footwear brands, utilize cork footbeds and EVA soles. These materials can be damaged with exposure to extreme heat like fireplaces and campfires.

Water immersion can compromise integrity of the sealant materials and change the appearance of the shoe’s materials. If your shoes get wet, let them air dry away from direct heat. 

Need to get your sandals wet, but want the comfort of Birkenstock? Don’t compromise! We also carry Birkenstock’s water-friendly sandal line. 

Give Your Shoes a Refresh

Want to make your Birkenstock sandals look fresh again? Spray the footbed with Birkenstock Cleaner & Refresher, wiping excess away with a cloth. If your sandals feature nubuck or suede, use the brush to revive the texture. 

It doesn’t hurt to regularly wipe off your shoes with a damp cloth. It will keep them clean and looking fresh!

Regularly Apply Birkenstock Water & Stain Repellent 

To protect your Birkenstock leather, nubuck or suede sandals from water and dirt, regularly apply Birkenstock Water & Stain Repellent. Use the brush to pull out dust and dirt from the upper part of the shoe.
