HOW DO I CLEAN MY BIRKENSTOCK SHOES?
WHAT YOU NEED:
Brush, old tooth brush, cloth, leather shampoo, two bowls of water.
Clean your shoes with a dry brush.
Clean your shoes with a damp cloth.
DO NOT IMMERSE IN WATER:Your shoes should not be immersed in water as the leather will become hard and brittle. The glues and sealants will dissolve in water. Salt water is corrosive so you should rinse the buckles whenever they have been exposed to salt water. The buckles and rivets can be replaced. Sandals and clogs come with a protective sealant called Cork-Care. This sealant is water soluble and will wear off in time.

Profi Birki's are designed for use in professional kitchens or in places where a lot of water may be used. Both the footbed and the shoe can be washed.
