Birkenstock/Valentino Collaboration

When traveling, you need great shoes. They should be comfortable and practical and tell others something about who you are and what you are about. Then, there are the shoes pictured above. I am not sure what they say about you other than you don't have a matching red MAGA hat! This is the most confounding collaboration I have ever witnessed, honestly and I don't know what to think about it. Maybe there is a certain genius here, and that is the point. Not many would associate the Valentino and Birkenstock consumers. It's not like Travis Scott and Nike Air Jordans or Chuck Taylors and Kith. Something just doesn't work here, but intrigued I am, and I look forward to seeing a fellow Louper out West in these babies!
