Following their appearance on Valentino’s autumn/winter 19 men’s catwalk, Pierpaolo Piccioli’s double take on Birkenstock’s iconic Arizona sandals quickly became the unexpected shoe of the season.

An exploration of everyday freedom captured by Roe Ethridge in New York. The DNA of Maison Valentino merges with the universal language of Birkenstock in an ode to inclusivity. On the streets of Brooklyn, Ryan McGinley and Lili Sumner bring the two exclusive unisex styles of the Arizona sandal to life, driving their Datsun through the city with enchanting liberality.

Worn with tailored suit separates and styled with black socks, our feet craved their chic comfort in both black and red.

Let’s have a closer look to the two exclusive interpretations of the familiar sandals as they come to life in the campaign starring photographer Ryan McGinley and model Lili Sumner, shot by Roe Ethridge in New York.
