Ten Loves: Birkenstock x Valentino

You can’t go wrong with a pair of Birkenstocks, can you? It seemed during lockdown, everyone was wearing the brand’s signature sandals – including us. Incredibly comfortable, yet equally stylish, these are the sort of shoes you can wear everywhere and anywhere. So as you can imagine, you can never have enough pairs.

This fact alone makes the brand’s latest collaboration even more irresistible. Following on from their first successful partnership last year, Birkenstock has teamed up once more with fashion giant Maison Valentino for a highly-wearable, unisex collection. Working specifically with the Birkenstock Arizona sandal, Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli coated the iconic silhouette in both muted and neon camouflage. On the side of the shoe, you will find Valentino’s ‘VLTN’ logo emblazoned in huge letters – ensuring these beauties will stand out, no matter the occasion.

We know summer’s drawing to a close, and it might get a little too chilly to get your toes out – but these fantastic creations are worth wearing socks with sandals for, no matter the weather.

The Birkenstock x Valentino SS20 collection is available online and in select stores.
