Birkenstock and Stüssy Made the Perfect Shoe for Fall

Corduroy + Boston Clog = fall in a shoe

It is pretty much a fact that fall is the best season. There’s the crisp weather, the seasonal activities and, most importantly, the clothes. Fall is when you can at last don jackets and layers and sweaters in an assortment of fabrics. And if there’s one fabric that reigns supreme during the season, it’s corduroy.

While you might have corduroy pants or even a corduroy jacket, we challenge you to fully embrace the fabric with corduroy shoes, namely Stüssy and Birkenstock’s collaboration for the latest iteration of the Boston Clog. The collab from the two brands keeps the silhouette of the iconic shoe from Birkenstock, rendering the upper in either “Anthracite” or “Bone” corduroy, with the Stüssy logo imprinted on the side.

It’s a subtle yet effective update to the clog, a style already conducive to fall made all the more so thanks to the fabric choice. Besides, considering that we’ll most likely still be in the midst of a pandemic by the time the leaves turn, it’s also a shoe that lends itself well to the lifestyle of a homebody — Birkenstock’s signature soft footbed and EVA sole ensures comfortable wear while the clog silhouette allows them to be slipped on or off at a moment’s notice. But that doesn’t mean you should be too shy to venture out of the house in them. On the contrary, they deserve to be seen and worn in all their glory.

The shoes will be available August 21 at 10a.m. PST (so for those on EST/EDT time, set your alarms for 1p.m.) and retail for $188.
