The 33 Dougal takes inspiration from the timeless Birkenstock Boston clog and is crafted from smooth leather with a high-shine finish in autumnal hues. Also joining the line-up is the 222 West, which blends the iconic BIRKENSTOCK Arizona two-strap sandal and Boston styles in black leather with chrome buckles. The offering is completed with the iconic BIRKENSTOCK Arizona, Florida, and Milano silhouettes in “Berlin leather,” “Kurkuma Carafe,” and “Green Moss Cazdor” suede renditions. The new styles will be available from March 14 via the 1774 website and select global retailers.
