Celine's 'Furkenstocks' made their debut at the 2012 Paris Fashion Week. The fashion label's Spring/Summer 2013 collection is set to include the fuzzy Birkenstock reinterpretations, emphasizing laid back comfort above all for the French line.
These plush Furkenstocks have become causing quite a stir. Online style critics have taken note of the brands use of flat footwear in place of sky high heels, the latter being the common go-to choice for designers like Christian Dior and Tom Ford. Celine has instead chosen to step outside the mainstream.
Blue, red and black slabs of feathery fabric line these sandals. There is a certain Asian flare about them despite their similarity to the Birkenstock shoe, seen in the thick criss crossed straps.
