Think of Birkenstock and you generally imagine sandals in muted colours of white, black and grey. The new collection created by Melbourne-based womenswear label Gorman and the iconic 1774-founded German brand Birkenstock is anything but.
Launching online tonight and available in-store tomorrow are seven limited-edition sandals featuring colourful and boldly illustrated artworks by Gorman available in Birkenstock’s classic Arizona style and Arizona platforms.
There’s a black-and-white gingham design, a musk-pink botanical one, as well as a distinctly Gorman, wildly patterned one, among others.
Gorman says you should match your shoes with a vibrant pair of socks so you can rock the equally loved and derided socks-with-sandals look.
It’s the second time the two labels have worked together – they released a similar collection last year but with only four styles available.
The Gorman x Birkenstock collab sandals are available online from the night of October 22 and in-store from October 23. They are $169.
