For the Dior men’s Winter 2022-2023 collection, the House and Kim Jones are paying homage to Christian Dior’s passion for gardening by joining forces with Birkenstock for the first time. An unprecedented creative dialogue that reinvents two iconic pairs of shoes, striking a perfect balance of comfort, elegance, and craftsmanship.

The Milano sandal and the Tokio mule are emblematic models of the Birkenstock collections, dressed in felt or suede, in seasonal colors or the classic Dior Gray. Unique in their design and in their practicality, both creations have a utilitarian style characterized by rubber elements and industrial buckles. 

Adapted to the natural human stride, the orthopedic, anatomical footbed is adorned with smooth leather, while the outer sole combines the Dior Oblique pattern with Birkenstock’s signature Bones graphic. As a delightful final twist, an exceptional version of the Tokio*, hand-embroidered with delicate flowers, completes the couture silhouettes of the show. A contemporary celebration of functional spirit and timeless refinement, reflecting multiple expertise.
