Dior Collabs with Birkenstock For Your Next Luxury Comfy Footwear Flex
Featuring the Boston Clog and Milano Sandal in grey felt.
The humble Birkenstock was a preferred choice of footwear for the world’s best chefs before TikTok fashion influencers got a hold of them. Chefs highly preferred Birkenstock footwear because they had a comfortable and convenient shape that conformed to the foot. Over the last 12 months, footwear’s popularity has soared among fashion-savvy footwear. As a result, it has caught attention and interest of Dior.
The collaboration between Birkenstock and the French luxury fashion house is interesting, unexpected, and newsworthy. Dior debuted it in front of the world at the FW22 fashion show. The products are designed by Thibo Denis, who also brought us the B27 sneaker and Moon Boot and are expected to be available widely by the end of 2022.
The release date of the products is yet to be announced, but it will likely be in late 2022. Even the pricing details are not known yet. The materials used by Birkenstock and Dior include suede uppers, felt material and floral motifs.
Dior is not the first designer label collaborating with the German shoe manufacturer. In just 24 months, there have been collaborations between Stussy, Jil Sander, Proenza Schouler, and Rick Owens. Birkenstock has also had collaborations with lesser-known brands like Universal Works. The Birkenstock Boston, and its cousins the Milano and Tokio, have also gathered momentum in preparation for this example with the Bernard Arnault-owned brand.
In the images provided by the brand, one can see two Birkenstock models in a lot of creative glory. Dior chose the Milano and Tokio silhouettes. There, one can also see an anatomically-shaped cork-latex footbed that is dressed in either a suede or felt-material upper, and the classic Dior grey is playing host to a stylish seasonal blend.
The shoes obviously have functional elements like industrial buckles and rubber details. On the outsole, one can see a collaborative motif. One such Tokio features embroidered flowers that work as an ode to the show’s couture direction.
