Two high-profile shoe collaborations beginning this week allow us to see the sunshine. The primary from Dr. Martens and Suicoke, the second from Stüssy and Birkenstock – each be certain that the autumn wardrobe begins on the proper foot.

This newest collaboration with the pioneering shoe label Suicoke lets the duo meet proper within the center. The “DM Mura” sandal picks up on current parts of each manufacturers and combines them into a brand new, next-level silhouette.

(Particularly in case you dwell in a spot the place fall is extra of a calendar day than a climate sample.) These sturdy models will probably be formally dropped off tomorrow, August 28th, and you may get them at Dr. Martens and choose retailers akin to END.
Stüssy and Birkenstock are type of a reunion. Final yr the 2 teamed up on a pair of cushioned corduroy clogs that had been an authorized bang. (The limited-edition kicks are actually being bought on the aftermarket for thrice the unique value.) This time, the Californian label picked up Birkenstock’s iconic “Boston” mannequin and opted for high-quality suede in three comfy colours – bone, caramel and Dusty pink – and a color-coordinated (and unmistakably massive) Stüssy emblem on the facet. All three colour variants fell this afternoon and, like their predecessors, they had been bought out inside a couple of minutes. You possibly can snap them up on StockX proper now, however hurry up – these costs are nearly sure to maintain going up.
Pay attention, none of those are more likely to be your on a regular basis footwear, particularly since “brisk” turns into too “chilly as hell”. However between an inventory of sneakers, boots, and loafers for on a regular basis put on, there’s room for one thing funky. Particularly some DNA mixing hybrids like these two collabs, that are an ideal match for the intermediate temperatures and our personal upcoming closet change.
