Birkenstock Birkofloor

My beloved Birkenstocks are falling apart after 7 years. They had a leather sole. These days, most models seem to only come with Birkofloor. Is it as good and long lasting as the leather version?

In my opinion no Birks are as long lasting as they used to be but I e got both options and while I prefer to have leather the Birko floor is just as durable . It's the soles I find wear out quicker these days leaving me with perfect uppers

no leather option for the ones I want other than on Amazon and I worry these are fakes.

But thanks, good to know re the birko floor

I've always found them very durable...I left the pair I've worn for years and years on holiday and they were getting a little worn out. I'd worn them loads and loads though and the sole wasn't worn any more than any other part of them.
