Summer is in full swing this week with not only your typical sneaker releases, but also the YZY FOAM RNR and some high-end footwear. While we have the 8 best summer sandals for you, the Dior x Birkenstock collaboration hits different. Let’s jump right into it.


Kasina x Nike Air Max 1 “Won-Ang”

Korean retailer Kasina is back with another Nike collaboration following their 2020 joint effort on the Dunk Low. This time around, they’ve chosen the Air Max 1 silhouette to tell the story of wedding ducks, a pair that symbolizes love and unity. Two ducks come together on the translucent outsole and there’s also a Won-Ang keychain and wooden dubrae. Premium pony hair and soft suede are used on both pairs. You can pick up the Won-Ang AM1 in Grey and Orange on SNKRS app.

Dior by Birkenstock

Birkenstock is a fan favorite summer sandal option and Dior has just elevated two styles – the Tokio mules and Milano sandals. First seen on-feet at Dior Men’s 2022-2023 Collection show at Place de la Concorde, during Paris Fashion Week, the Tokio sandal features applique floral embroideries inspired by an iconic Dior Haute Couture dress from the 1957 Dior collection. The Milano sandal is reimagined in Dior gray felt and leather ankle strap. Dior is offering exclusive access on their website if you sign up now. You can also keep your eyes and ears on Birkenstock for a drop.
