BIRKENSTOCK and Opening Ceremony present one of Magritte’s renditions of Le Faux Miroir on the classic Boston clog. Here a single large eye stares out from an iris painted as a bright cloudfilled sky. Or, is it that the viewer is looking at the eye? Eyes have long been a favorite subject among Surrealists, as a portal between the inner/subjective and outer/objective worlds.

Upper material: Birko-Flor®
Birko-Flor® is a skin-friendly, tear-resistant and easy-to-care-for synthetic material which is exclusively used by BIRKENSTOCK.
Insole: Natural leather
Natural leather can be recognized by its untreated surface. BIRKENSTOCK purposely does not treat surface grains and other characteristic features. BIRKENSTOCK uses sturdy leather with a thickness of 2.8 to 3.2 millimeters as upper material.
Footbed material: Cork
Cork is a sustainable material extracted from the bark layer of the cork oak. This natural product is insulating and offers very good cushioning.
EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is a high-quality, very light, elastic material with extremely good cushioning. As a result, it smooths out slight irregularities in the floor and ensures that every step is softly cushioned.
