MSCHF Birkinstocks sandals-made-from-birkin-bags

BAM! From Granola to Glam. MSCHF has upcycled the ‘hippie’ Birkenstock sandal into a pair of über exclusive and expensive shoes made from real, destroyed Hermes Birkin Bags – the penultimate status symbol of the wealthy- and calls them Birkinstocks.

Sandals Made From Birkin Bags

MSCHF (pronounced “mischief”) is a Brooklyn based company that “drops” unusual, coveted, and often viral, creations online every two weeks. Purposely difficult to find, the company’s Twitter and Instagram pages are private and most of its direct marketing takes place through text messages from a mysterious phone number.

Their latest product worthy of ‘buzz’ are these bespoke Birkinstocks which have no relation to the Hermès or Birkenstock brands. Each pair is crafted from a destroyed Birkin bag by hand, utilizing the exotic skins and leathers of the world-renowned bags for a new pair of shoes.

Each one-of-a-kind pair of Birkinstock shoes comes packaged with a dustbag, MSCHF’s own version of an Hermes-like silk scarf and is boxed in the familiar orange and brown.
