Birki's ALPRO®-Foam & ALPRO®-Cell

With ALPRO®-Foam and ALPRO®-Cell , two seemingly similar materials are employed, whose differences, however, become apparent as soon as you start wearing them. During the production process of our different clog styles, their function is always our main focus: The differences in tread and surface texture, a high heel cut and anatomic footbeds are but a few of the core themes we concentrate on. This way the areas of application of ALPRO®-Foam and ALPRO®-Cell are extremely diversified.

Clogs made of ALPRO®-Cell such as the Pacific and the Classic-Birki are perfectly suited for holidays, beach, or outdoors. This is where one should put great emphasis on light weight and a high degree of durability.

During a sailing trip one must be able to rely on slip-resistant and oil-resistant soles while having secure hold within the shoe. For this purpose, styles made of ALPRO®-Foam such as the Super-Birki and Profi-Birki are perfect.

In labs, industrial kitchens or at hospitals, materials are required that are resistant to most chemicals, oils, and grease. They are also extremely flexible and adaptable, as well as easy (and antiseptic) to clean. In these settings, the use of ALPRO®-Foam products have also been proven successfully (e.g. Profi-Birki and Super-Birki).

If an extremely light, durable yet flexible sandal is required we exclusively use ALPRO®-Cell. No matter whether a thong sandal (Caribbean), a sandal with a wide strap across the front of the foot (Pacific) or with two adjustable straps (Atlantic): ALPRO®-Cell sandals are available in all classic colours and forms. What makes them so special is the fact that they are poured in one go and due to their light weight they are hardly noticeable when worn.

If, however, a sandal is preferred which features all the advantages of ALPRO®-Foam - such as flexibility and oil, grease and chemical resistance - one chooses styles like Haiti, Samoa, Aruba or Sansibar. Due to the plasticity of ALPRO®-Foam in its hot state the sole can be moulded directly to the upper material Birko-Flor®. ALPRO®-Foam enters into the innermost layers of Birko-Flor® and fuses these materials together to create a flexible unit, which is slip-resistant, durable and water-repellent.
