It’s Underwear Week on the Strategist, but it might as well also be clog week, given the Swedish Hasbeens and No. 6 sales we reported on. The clog deals do not seem to be slowing down, but these Birkenstocks are a little different — they are more fall-appropriate (i.e., they can be worn with socks), they are ugly-elegant in the best way, deeply comfortable, happen to be a discontinued model (so maybe that also makes them collector’s items?), and are very relevant, given Cathy Horyn’s recent piece for the Cut fashion issue on Birkenstock’s remarkable recent rise. And right now they’re 42 percent off at Nordstrom Rack.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
