Birkenstock markets $800 shoe
Shoes features premium leather, sterling silver
What's old is new again--and apparently more expensive.
Birkenstock is offering a limited-edition collection of the legendary footwear featuring oiled natural leather and handcrafted buckles in solid 925 sterling silver.
The website description states,"The Birkenstock classic Arizona model has been recreated in the finest imbued and oiled natural leather in navy blue for this designer collection. The sterling silver buckles; which originate from the metalwork studio of jewelry designer Patrik Muff; are the highlight of the luxury sandals."
The listed price for the new Birkenstocks is $799 dollars.
