Rick Owens is a master of subtle overstatement. For his BIRKENSTOCK Limited Collection, the acclaimed designer chose a playful approach, confronting the canon of minimalist design with luxury materials. Soft suede leather enhances the natural vibe of the Boston Clog. The design is transformed by sophisticated details; Owens chose to extend the straps integrated into the upper, allowing them to almost brush the ground. The shoe and the buckles are in matte-finish Drkshdw––a color that has been a constant in Owens‘ collections for decades. To create the hue, the designer experimented with khaki fabrics, dyeing them black and bleaching them before overdyeing. The result is a distinctive shade that further enhances the natural character of this classic BIRKENSTOCK style.

The flexible leather lining, which is gentle on the skin, nestles up softly against your foot and adjusts to its contour. The open-pored and thus very breathable surface makes for a comfortable foot climate, even during more strenuous physical activity.
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.
