Editor’s Notes: The collaboration between Rick Owens and Birkenstock is set to go into its second season. The duo unveiled various women’s styles during Paris Women’s Fashion Week SS19.
Whereas season one saw Owens rework classic styles such as the Arizona and Madrid sandals and the Boston clog, season two will focus on two new styles: the Rotterdam sandal and the Rotterhiker boot.
Both the sandal and the boot come in multiple colorways, all of which predominantly feature grey and black hues in true Rick Owens style.
The collection will be available starting in January 2019.
Stay tuned for further release details and, in the meantime, flip through all styles above.
