As we all very well remember, Birkenstocks had a big moment in the past few years. Fashion girls and hippie folk are still wearing sandals with everything from minidresses and baseball caps to brunch with friends. They grew so popular that other brands started copying the design. Prada’s velvet and leather design look so similar to Birkenstocks that it could fool anyone. The same goes for Tory Burch’s embellished flats and ASOS studded slippers. There are lots of Birkenstock varieties out there, but these new shoes are about to change the game big time. Birkenstock and Stüssy have announced a unisex collaboration that adds a new spin to the classic Boston Clog. The duo has come together to merge its “brand codes into a new classic.”

Birkenstock is known for its laidback footwear, while Stüssy has a cult following in streetwear. The collaboration gives a modern refresh to Birkenstock’s classic design of the original Boston Clog, and it’s a minimalist’s dream. Instead of leather, the shoe’s upper comes in corduroy and is complemented by the classic adjustable strap with a buckle. The Stüssy logo is designed on the outside upper. The sandal is completed by Birkenstock’s signature anatomically designed cork footbed to provide comfort. The sandals also come with an integrated latex foam cushion and suede lining paired with an EVA outsole, which is a plastic sole that’s lighter and more flexible than rubber. That will help with sore feet after hours of wearing. The corduroy clogs will be available in two sleek and simple colors, Anthracite and Bone. The collab will be available at select stores worldwide, on stussy.com, and on 1774.com on August 21st and retail for $200. There are a few branches: two in Canada, one in New York, and three in California. We can’t wait to get our hands on a pair (or two)!
