Birkenstock Goes Full Teva With Its New Outdoors-Ready Mogami Terra

— Updated on 6 March 2024

Anyone whose owned a pair of Birkenstock’s iconic cork sandal knows that the familiar warning of “do not get wet” is bound to be frustrating. After all, Birks have become a universal ‘go anywhere, do anything’ shoe for the boho-minded: from grocery runs, to beach days, casual Fridays, and many situations wearers will find themselves in-between.

Whilst Birkenstock’s recent introduction of the foam Arizona helped quell some of the criticisms about fragility, a foray into the great outdoors was never really on the cards for the German footwear maker. Until now.

Birkenstock Mogami

Potentially taking a leaf from its trail-running competitor, Teva, Birkenstock’s new Mogami Terra, a fully foam hiking sandal, is yet another foray into the area of “outdoor adventure”.

The style arrived in the USA late last week, whilst kids-only versions of the Mogami are already available here in Australia. It currently comes in three colourways: elemental blue, eucalyptus, and whale grey.

Birkenstock’s broader collection of outdoor-minded (frankly gorpy) footwear streams nicely into the trend of hiking shoes for the every day. According to the brand itself, these “cross-element” shoes are “for Birkenstock fans who are active and looking for some extra grip to their sandals”.

They come in a range of classic Birkenstock colourways: from Habana brown, Black, and Ochre leathers, as well as Green, Black, Navy and Camo “Birko-Flor Futura”.

Regardless of colourway, all feature grippier, deeper lugs for mud release and traction. Birkenstock’s signature cork footbed has been retained in a number of cases, though most of these trail-friendly models have a durable new TPU/PU base — likely treated with water-resisting properties.

Expect the Mogami to arrive on the Birkenstock Australia website in the near future.
