Fashion designer Rick Owens has updated the Birkenstock silhouette to feature a felt, a pony hair and a leather iteration.

For many, the durability and comfort provided by Birkenstock's make the shoes a footwear staple. However, the shoe isn't typically synonymous with high-fashion, which is why this collaboration serves as an interesting move from the sandal brand.

Owens has updated the Arizona, Madrid and Boston shoe to feature a unique material, while boasting the designer's iconic monochromatic color palette. The newly released shoes serve as high-fashion alternatives to the brand's traditional offerings, presenting the wearer with something comfortable enough for the woods but sleek enough for the city.

A pop-up shipping container will be retailing the Birkenstocks in-front of Owens' existing Los Angeles store.
