Trends come and go, one minute we’re obsessed with flares and '70s fashion trends, and then suddenly it's all about the 2000s. But there are some pieces that never go out of style, and will always be an essential part of our capsule wardrobes. And there’s one item, in particular, we’re thinking of—and the Stussy x Birkenstock collaboration just proved us right—Clogs!

What can we say about clogs, they’re chunky, they’re a little rough around the edges but damn they’re cute. 

This is now an official clogs stan-account. Clogs will always be in style because they’re sophisticated, cool, and look effortless with a  pair of jeans. If you don’t believe us, then believe Stüssy and Birkenstock who have just announced a new collaboration.

The new collection is dropping soon, but the brands have already collaborated on two pairs, in ‘anthracite’ which is a chocolatey brown, and ‘bone’ which is a very light, creamy pink. They have Birkenstocks' iconic Boston silhouette and are made from 100% cotton Corduroy-debossed suede.

They also feature the signature anatomically designed footbed, dark brown suede lining, and the Stüssy logo on the outside. Unsurprisingly they are sold out in the US, but you can still get your hands on the brown in the UK.

According to Hypebeast (opens in new tab), the new, second collection will feature a caramel brown and dusty pink colorway—the excitement is real!

These clogs come in two colorways, anthracite and bone. Both colors are currently sold out in the US, however, shoppers in Europe and the UK can still buy the anthracite clog.

At least we know there's another collection on its way! 

The best clogs to buy now

Clogs are such versatile footwear. Where sandals are for summer, a clog can be worn all year round because they’re closed over the toe, and some even come with a fluffy lining—what's not to love?

You can also dress them up or down. The Stüssy Birkenstocks are a more casual style as they’re flat—but you can find yourself some chic heeled clogs. 

Clogs are guaranteed to elevate any look, whether you're throwing on some heeled clogs for a date or sliding on some flats for a chilly walk—and luckily for you, we've found some perfect alternatives we'll wait for the new Stüssy x Birkenstock collection...
