The collection features new designs of the slip-on sandal styles, Arizona and Milano, which are classic silhouettes by Birkenstock.
There are five colours to choose from with white, off-white ecru, burgundy, cobalt blue and black with white or yellow top stitching in the range.
Design duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez say: “Our first collaboration with Birkenstock launched at the start of the pandemic, which ended up being great for us personally as we spent quarantine in the country wearing our Birkenstocks.”
They go on to add that the new autumn collection feels “as timeless as ever.”
The new styles are now available to exclusively pre-order from proenzaschouler.com.
