Regardless of what your level of social media involvement—odds are you’ve seen the Birkenstock Boston Clog on your feed at one point or another. Just like the brand’s sandal that went from polarizing to wildly popular in what felt like no time at all, the Bostons have become the new (er, old?) “it” shoe since going viral on TikTok this fall (#birkenstockboston has 81.6 million views and counting!).

Boston believers say it’s the cushiony comfort, versatility, and nostalgic '90s style that make the Boston Clog such a favorite, which explains why Birkenstock and other retailers have been steadily selling out of the shoe and are struggling to keep up with the rapidly rising demand. Normally priced at around $150, Boston Clogs are being listed for as much as $200-$300 on StockX—turning the shoe scarcity into a major pay day for some. But before you embark on the impossible journey to find a pair for yourself, let us be the ones to tell you that you can get this similar looking pair on for only 40 bucks.

Meet the Oslei Clogs ($40).  A trusty house "slipper" and every day clog in one affordable shoe that's nearly identical to the real deal.

Just like the Birkenstock Boston Clogs, the Oslei clogs have a comfortable EVA outsole with a lightweight and flexible feel. The cork footbed sits atop an arch-supporting memory foam insole that reviewers say makes all the difference. "These slide ons are very comfortable," writes one Walmart shopper in a 5-star review, "Great quality, built with amazing materials."  And while most Birkenstocks require some breaking in before reaching peak comfort, Walmart shoppers say they were pleasantly surprised by the Oslei's supportive, cushioned feel. "The sole is even cushioned making them very comfy," writes one 5-star reviewer.

While the look of the Boston's suede upper and adjustable buckle is hard to replicate, the suede material and buckled strap on the Oslei Clogs do a pretty convincing job.  One reviewer claims the color is spot on, writing "the color is perfect", and "Beats paying the price for the Boston Birkenstocks!"

To achieve the most comfortable fit, Walmart shoppers recommend sizing up—and don't be discouraged by the shipping time either, many were psyched to see theirs delivered sooner than expected!

Ultimately, the Oslei clogs are so worth it—and at $40 bucks (less than a third of the usual price!), this is a deal that’s too good to pass up. W
