8 Birkenstock Collaborations to Shop and Wear All Summer


Out of all of the podiatrist-approved shoes out there Birkenstock’s high-quality arch supportive sandals have done the impossible and transitioned from a mere orthopedic basic to a runway-worthy closet staple. Don’t take our word for it. Just look at the luxurious fashion houses who are celebrating the comfort-first brand.

Dior’s Kim Jones turned Birkenstock’s Tokio mules into a work of art via sumptuous felt and suede fabrics along with dreamy flower embroidery. Sadly, we’ll have to wait until next fall to get our hands—or should I say feet—on those gardening slippers. But, of course, there are several equally as lust-worthy Birkenstock collaborations up for grabs right now.

Today, Staud debuted its sophisticated take on Birkenstocks, with butter soft leather sandals. And there’s a host of more designer alliances to shop below. From Manolo Blahnik to Proenza Schouler, these are the covetable Birkenstock collabs to shop now.

Staud

Thanks to Italian croc-embossed leather and metallic hardware, Staud’s Birkenstock collaboration delivers a beautiful update on the iconic Arizona and Gizeh sandals.

Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler’s beloved remix plays with beautiful yet practical details—like contrasting whipstitched trims and velcro fastenings instead of traditional buckles.

Rick Owens

In a less-is-more approach, Rick Owens elongated the straps on Birkenstock’s famous Arizona’s and a luxe black-on-black tone on the sporty Rotterdam sandals.
