Not just a cult mag coming out of cult Berlin, 032c has been working hard at becoming a label in its own right — growing a logo-centric apparel line into a full blown collection debuting earlier this year at Pitti Uomo. Much like the very nature of the brand — with its workshop housed in a converted brutalist church among Kreuzberg pre-fab blocks — the wares are tough and functional.
Adding to the staunch garb, 032c has just announced a collab with Birkenstock. The results are the toughest clogs we’ve ever seen, with perhaps the cutest name: Super Birki. They’ve reworked the style in black/white with camo/white shearling insoles, plus intensified the tread to something fit for combat — even if the warriors are just techno ones.
“A polyurethane exercise in extreme versatility, designed to withstand the heat of modern industrial and subcultural conditions, day and night, at work and at play,” they say on a press release, and we believe them.
The collaboration hits stores irl and online — 032c, Ssense, Opening Ceremony, Birkenstock, among others — on November 22.
