You know that old saying, “If loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right?” Well, that’s exactly how I feel about Birkenstock’s Boston clogs. These shoes are a game-changer for me, and I know I’m not alone in this sentiment. Take a look at Gigi Hadid’s latest summer outfit, for example.

During a recent excursion to scout commercial real estate in New York City with her partner Bradley Cooper, Gigi Hadid was spotted sporting the controversially cool Bostons. For the outing, the model paired the comfortable flats with gray sweatpants and a cropped graphic T-shirt. Her accessories weren’t half bad either: rectangular wire-framed sunglasses and Miu Miu’s Arcadie bag in yellow.

For those unfamiliar, there’s a divide on the Boston clogs because some believe they give off a “granola” or hippie vibe. However, for me, Hadid’s choice of sweatpants was more controversial than her shoe choice, especially considering the heatwave in NYC. Birkenstock’s Boston clogs are undeniably stylish. They have a simple slip-on silhouette with a suede upper and buckle detail that lends a refined appeal. They also provide unparalleled comfort. These flats boast a footbed that contours to the feet, offering a supportive and easy-on-the-foot shoe, especially for individuals with foot pain.
