July 20 (UPI) -- Birkenstock is offering a special edition of its iconic Arizona sandals featuring sterling silver buckles and a $799 price tag.
The footwear company's website is offering the $799 "Exquisite" version of its Arizona sandals, describing them as "strictly limited-edition."
"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 product description reads.
The buckles were "handcrafted" in "solid 925 sterling silver," the company says.
The pricey sandals follow a trend in high-end retailers selling curiously high priced items including a $1,425 pair of pre-destroyed sneakers sold by Neiman Marcus and a $425 pair of jeans pre-caked with mud sold on Nordstrom's website.
