The ugly shoe trend may have just gotten It-girl fashion’s stamp of approval, thanks to Birkenstock’s latest collaboration with one of today's most popular brands Staud. On Friday, the two announced the partnership, which includes a summer-themed collection of handbags and ready-to-wear from the Los Angeles-based label, as well as footwear in Birkenstock’s signature styles.
The shoe styles include two of Birkenstock’s most famous sandals, the Arizona and Gizeh, in brown and black croc material. The styles feature gold buckles, as well as Staud’s signature ivory stitching, and retail for $195. Meanwhile, Staud is launching two plaid and croc shoulder bags in a wide range of colors, starting at $275. As part of this launch, Staud is also releasing limited edition ready-to-wear pieces that include a plaid skirt and top ensemble, a set of lightweight knits, and easy dresses that could go from a daytime picnic to a beachside bonfire.
