When it comes to futuristic footwear, one will unlikely think of Birkenstocks — the German company that popularized the comfortable buckle-accented slip-ons. However, for Spring/Summer 2019, the cult-favorite brand partners up with American designer Rick Owens. The result of the collaboration is an incredibly futuristic footwear silhouette that is largely unconventional for Birkenstock's style.
The model boasts a high-top construction with an oversized tongue that sparks curiosity and an intended stylistic abnormality. The Birkenstock x Rick Owens silhouette is made to have a white upper with subtle hits of black and a reflective metallic nuance. The futuristic footwear design is completed with a Velcro strap.
Needless to say, the sneakers will definitely surprise the unexpecting audience and will serve as a strong fashion-forward embellishment to the tech-inspired outfit.
