Kylie Jenner just added one of the most coveted pairs of sandals on the market to her closet. According to the New York Times, MSCHF has made only about 10 pairs of the Birkin Birkenstock sandal.
Kylie Jenner Got Her Hands on a Pair of the Hermès Birkin Birkenstocks
“The most exclusive sandal ever made” is a Birkenstock-like piece of footwear with an official Birkenstock cork-and-rubber sole, but with a leather upper made from purposefully chopped-up Hermès Birkin bags.
Kylie Jenner got her hands on a pair of viral “Birkinstocks,” Birkenstock-style sandals made from destroyed Hermès Birkin bags.
Kylie Jenner revealed the black pebbled leather shoes in an Instagram Story on Monday, thanking MSCHF, the Brooklyn-based collective responsible for the viral design.

“Historically we make luxury objects out of inherently valuable materials,” the company recently told the Post.
“We can look to the Birkin bag itself as the new luxury raw material par excellence. Birkinstocks, though, are no collaboration; perhaps we might more properly call them a transubstantiation.”
Last week, the outlet reported that the brand had already given three pairs away. One went to the rapper Future (who shared Instagram photos wearing the slides), singer Kehlani and an unnamed art collector, so Jenner was lucky to be gifted her own pair by the brand.
The limited-edition sandals are available to purchase by request only, with prices ranging from $34,000 to $76,000, and come packaged in an Hermès-style orange box.
