If you’re tuning in from the southern half of our globe, you (like us) must be wrapped about the turn of spring being finally upon us. It’s almost time to bust out those feet and bring out your collection of open-toed shoes once again.

Another reason to get excited about summer footwear? The second instalment of the Gorman x Birkenstock collaboration. Launched this week, the perfectly paired duo has this time released 10 styles in iconic shapes Arizona and Gizeh, that exude summer fun.

A shining beacon of light, fun, colour and print within the homegrown fashion scene in Australia, Gorman is known for their one-of-a-kind prints. This time around, Gorman’s choice of motifs placed on each pair of sandals is a mix of quirky and animal shapes, in colours that induce joy.

If you’re a fan of the ever-popular Birkenstock Arizona, but uninspired by the subdued offering of shades, then let us point you in the direction of the Gormanified Arizona in Modern Lover. This modernised leopard is the perfect graphic print for those keen to dip their toes into the collection, without too much colour.

Now if you’re a Gorman girl from way back, be sure to check out all the other options in the two-strapped Arizona style, you’ll be fabulously spoilt for choice!

Since launching their first collaborative project in November of 2020, you can read our write-up here, it’s clear both brands have dialled up the fun on this newest offering, and added a few options for those who might prefer a more paired-back colour profile. We’re big fans of the tactile and fluffy addition of the Arizona Teddy, which is reminiscent of the Fendi x Skims collaboration.

Whether you’re a lover or a loather of the technicolour world that Gorman entices us with, we’re sure you’ll appreciate this collection of sandals that will make summer a colour-saturated breeze. Shop the collaboration below!
