Roses may be red and violets may be blue but the best things that come in red are Valentino shoes. The Valentino x Birkenstock collaboration has dropped after they debuted at the Valentino Men’s AW19 show in Paris. “I chose to make this collaboration with Birkenstock for the same reason people choose Birkenstock every day,” said Pierpaolo Piccioli. “No matter what you wear, who you are, no matter your gender or social background, no matter your age, your style, no matter if you care about fashion or if you do not, Birkenstock has its own universal language. I loved the idea of approaching the DNA of our Maison, represented by the individual and intimate world of Couture with something that it is so free and adaptable. To me, this is the definition of inclusivity.” Hell yeah. And so the Valentino Arizona sandal was born, or as we are naming it: the Varizona. The shoe comes in Valentino piping hot red or a black with the VLTN logo slyly and chicly running down the side. These Varizona’s were made for walking’… and werkin’.
