Birkenstock and Stüssy reunite for new collaboration – the Solana

GERMAN brand Birkenstock commenced another collaboration with youth-culture brand Stüssy – this time reinterpreting the iconic Kyoto-style shoe.

The two titans have a history of past partnerships, such as the Boston Birkenstock from their 2021 collaboration featuring a debossed Stüssy logo and a suede upper.

This year, their creative journey has taken them through the Birkenstock archives where they have joined forces to reimagine the Kyoto slide as a new and exciting staple.

Named the Solana, the collaboration sees a slip-on silhouette with the distinguishable Birkenstock cork footbed and an exaggerated suede upper lined with shearling.

The shoes are structured to fit comfortably with adjustable hook and loop fasteners and come in three colourways — bone, caramel and washed green. As an embellishment, the Stüssy logo adorns the side of the shoe for added branding, signifying the collaboration between the celebrated brands.

The Solana is designed for comfortable wearing while still prioritising style, and its versatility allows for it to be both an indoor and outdoor shoe, making the slip-on a year-round staple in anyone’s wardrobe.
