Crocs are cool. Well that’s certainly what it looks like these days. You can’t scroll through Instagram without seeing people showing off their “fully loaded” Crocs.
I must confess that I’m one of those people and completely obsessed with the oh-so-popular jibbitz. Besides being super comfy (yes they really and truly are) they add a bit of fun to work-from-home outfits.
The classic Crocs clog is the go-to style for most people. Other than the platform version, bright colours or funky patterns, very few venture much further than that.
However, no matter how popular or cool they’ve become, the die-hard fashionistas still won’t be caught dead wearing them.
But will they wear them if Balenciaga says it’s cool?
When the luxury fashion brand unveiled their chunky 90s inspired sneakers everybody called them “ugly” but everybody wore them.
Soon other brands were producing “fugly” sneakers and it became all the rage. Still is!
If you head on over to the Balenciaga Instagram page you’ll be in for a shock to find that there now only two posts on their feed. Both revealing the release of the Crocs Madame. There’s video post showing an installation created by Berlin-based mixed media artist Anna Uddenberg.
The shoe, which basically looks like a classic Crocs clog with a black heel, comes in four shades.
If you’re keen to get your hands on a pair, it will set you back around R8 700.
