55DSL x Birkenstock Sandals
These Birkenstocks Are Like Wearable Art
The piece: 55DSL x Birkenstock Monterey Sandal
The price: $260
Why we want it: These sandals aren't just further proof of Birkenstock's major and fashion-conscious comeback. They're actually the product of a three-way collaboration of the iconic brand, LA art publisher Arkitip, and San Franciscan artist Aaron De La Cruz. True story: the sandals were lined up underneath the artist's mural, and the paint-splattered design is the product of intentionally directed flecks from the artist's paintbrush. Now buying a pair from this limited-edition collection is kind of like owning a piece of art, only better because you can wear it.
