Universal Works x Birkenstock The Latest Collaboration
Universal Works and Birkenstock have launched a collaboration this spring and it certainly does not disappoint. Two companies with different histories combine to help create a product of quality, style and design.
Universal Works is renowned for channeling heritage with creative ideas into new and contemporary aesthetics. The company was first launched by Director & Co Founder David Keyte in 2009. His mission was simple, he wanted to create honest clothing that was based upon the fit, quality and design. Fast forward just a few years the brand is now stocked from Seoul to Los Angeles and has global success whilst always retaining those core beliefs that Keyte implemented in the companies humble beginnings.
Birkenstock on the other hand has much longer roots that Universal Works and can be traced back to 1774 with Johann Birkenstock being listed as a cobbler. From this, the brand continued to innovate and grow throughout the centuries into what we all know today. One thing that has never changed throughout Birkenstocks vast history is that the core aim has always been the same, make the lives of their customers better and easier. To make their customers feel ‘better’ they have always carefully selected materials and created an orthopaedic fit to help aid circulation and it help promote the natural movements of your feet.
In their latest collaboration we Birkenstock with Universal Works. An incredible collab which combines both brands values for the new SS19 collection. We see the classic birkenstock styles of Boston and Zurich have a Universal Works remaster with a suede touch. The idea of their collaboration was to implement a contemporary tonal take on the classic styles and silhouettes we all love from Birkenstock. Universal Works is one of the first European companies to partner with the German Birkenstock brand so it is really great to see such amazing designs and styles.
The Universal Works X Bikenstock collection sees a suede adjustable straps followed by a suede upper all upon the classic natural cork-latex eva sole. This design is then implemented across the Zurich and Boston silhouettes.
These are the perfect Summer shoe that encompass quality, comfort and style.
