Birkenstock and iconic shoe designer Manolo Blahnik are pleased to announce an upcoming collaboration, showcasing their mastery of craftsmanship and creativity.

It marked the starting point of an even deeper collaboration—the end result of which is this unique collection.

“Birkenstocks have been in my wardrobe since the very beginning (of time!!) – I have loved and worn mine for many years. I am thrilled that we have been able to collaborate, fusing the Manolo Blahnik aesthetic with the everyday comfort of Birkenstocks is simply wonderful!” said Manolo Blahnik.

“Birkenstock shares both brand and core design value much like our own and it has been a joy to bring this to life in the new Manolo Blahnik for Birkenstock collection. Timeless, high-quality designs, crafted to be treasured and enjoyed are what we set out to create and I am delighted with the outcome. It is a privilege to cement our relationship further with Birkenstock through this collaboration, following the S/S 2020 Personality Campaign in which my uncle and I featured.” – Kristina Blahnik
