Cape Town (South Africa), 9 December 2022 – Style yourself exquisitely this festive season with BIRKENSTOCK’s fresh summer silhouettes in striking new colour pops.

Known for its iconic cork footbed, BIRKENSTOCK crafts durable, versatile, and ergonomic pieces that are as stylish as they are functional. The brand’s new summer campaign sees South African tastemakers – designer and co-founder of Moea Design Cassandra Twala; ImprintZA founder, and creative director Mzukisi Mbane; and fashion disrupter and creative Yasmin Furmie; interpret and wear a selection of BIRKENSTOCK’s most-loved styles in fresh hues. They show us how global trends are made relevant here with South African styling.

Purple is the most celebrated colour of 2022 and BIRKENSTOCK is perfectly poised to saturate social feeds with its diverse shades of plum purple, purple fog, and bright violet. Style the Arizona EVA (R999) for the beach or the street, steal the spotlight in the Arizona Patent in plum purple (R1899), schmooze the party scene with the Arizona Suede in wine (R2499), and strike a pose in the pastel Arizona Papillio Chunky Suede in purple fog (R2399).

Feast your eyes on the luxurious Big Buckle Oiled Leather Collection with its Arizona (R3299) and Madrid (R2899) styles in festival fuchsia and beryl green. New additions to the Big Buckle Nubuck Collection are the Arizona (R2999) and the Madrid (R2699) both in brilliant beryl.

The Velvet Big Buckle Arizona (R3399) and Madrid (R2899) return with a pop of luscious light rose, in addition to the Velvet Big Buckle Maroon colourway (R3399) that is back by popular demand. The always-in-demand Arizona (R1899) and Gizeh (R1899) Shiny Python styles, with their subtle metallic embossing are updated in dark fuchsia.

This season also sees the signature grained leather straps of the Arizona (R2399) covered in a bold, geometric pattern featuring earthy shades of brown, blue, purple, black and red. This style is the hero of the Geometry Collection which also features a stand-out Arizona Birko-Flor Nubuck Split (R2399) in cork and brown, and sapphire and black, and a Boston Suede (R2799) in black with a geometric patterned footbed.

BIRKENSTOCK is deeply rooted in the fine art of crafting superior quality shoes that are good for you. Its cork footbed is designed to replicate a footprint in the sand and offer comfort for long summer days, but the brand is no stranger to making a high-fashion statement.
