Balenciaga and Crocs team up to make stiletto sandals

Crocs are like Marmite; some people hate them, and the others are frankly wrong

The clog company has teamed up with a fellow purveyor of the bizarre, Balenciaga, the brand famous for curating rather abstract garments for a high fashion market, and now, they have teamed up with everyone’s favourite comfort brand.

The design illustrates the classic Croc design but with a heel lifting the structure of the shoe. The sturdy heel is reminiscent of scaffolding or a random tube they had chilling around the studio.

Imagine pulling up to the club with these attached to your feet; you will undoubtedly be the talk of the dance floor and be comfortable for the entire night.

In an interview in 2017 with French Vogue, Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia had nothing but good things to say about Crocs.

“We were inspired by Crocs, and we worked with them on a Balenciaga reinterpretation.”

“Balenciaga x Crocs isn’t impossible; the question of taste is a very subjective value. We’ll see if this works in six months’ time in the stores.”

Though Crocs have been a staple of British fashion for years, they have recently seen a resurgence thanks to, in part, the rise of TikTok and its parallel with the pandemic. Because apparently, a symptom of quarantine is questionable fashion choices?

Though prices are yet to be revealed, you can expect them to be around the £600-£800 area.
