On Friday (January 21), Kim Jones unveiled his new Dior Fall/Winter 2022 menswear collection, which included an unexpected guest: Birkenstock. The humble clog is given a high fashion makeover as part of the collaboration. It reimagines two Birkenstock models — the Tokio Mule and the Milano Sandal — in butter-soft grey felt and brown lambskin. Thibo Denis, the designer behind the Dior B27 sneaker, created the clogs.

As a tribute to Monsieur Dior’s passion for gardening, the two clogs have been reinforced with a rubber toe. The clogs appear extremely functional with their rubber details and industrial buckles. To top it all off, the Dior and Birkenstock co-branding is embossed on the tonal outsole. If that wasn’t enough, a special edition of the Tokio Mule was revealed. The delicate flowers embroidered by the Vermont atelier represent Monsieur Dior’s love of nature. The Dior x Birkenstock collaboration is a stunning blend of function and elegance.
