Yes, Men’s Birkenstock Clogs Are Still A Thing
A follower recently asked on Instagram what our team’s recommendation would be for a fall footwear investment. Team SG’s answer? A men’s Birkenstock Boston clog.
Now you might be sitting there wondering, are Birkenstocks cool? For guys? The answer is yes, and yes.
What are men’s Birkenstock clogs, anyway?
The Birkenstock Boston clog has been around since 1979. The cozy casual slip-on was a natural extension for the sandal company, and looks tailor made for a long winter with a full Netflix queue.
The thing is: this isn’t a case of, “F*ck it. I’m not leaving the house. I may as well wear whatever I want.”
How to wear men’s Birkenstock clogs
Wear yours with camp socks and a pair of chinos cuffed at the ankle for a look that’s absolutely appropriate to leave the house in.
So long as you keep the rest of your outfit looking put together and intentional—even if what you’re wearing is a bit roomier, which is also (thankfully) the style right now—you’ll avoid looking like you’re going as The Big Lebowski for Halloween.
…And yes, you can wear your clogs with pajamas when you remember tomorrow is garbage day and you have to take out the recycling.
They do work as a slipper you can wear outside, too. If that’s really all you want them for.
Be prepared for some break-in time to get them nice and ergonomically attuned to your arches. From there, you’ll find yourself reaching for these slip-ons all year long.
Below, check out Birkenstock clogs outfits for men:
Styling tip: Cuff your jeans so the tops of the clogs just peek out.
THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT: Yes, you can wear Birkenstock Boston clogs with shorts! Opt for a tall, ribbed sock in a white or off-white color. Skip the athletic logos.
Styling tip: Boston clogs look great in spring and summer, too. Opt for a lighter color like taupe or grey, and keep the rest of your outfit breezy.
SG Says: Camp socks plus sweats equals cozy but cool.
