Balenciaga x Crocs Stilettos And Rainboots

Lately, Crocs has become somewhat of a “meme” shoe – a statement piece for hypebeast and celebrities alike.

Last month, rapper Nicki Minaj sparked a crocs frenzy after posting herself wearing blinged-up pink clogs on Instagram, even causing the retailer’s site to crash. Recently, American DJ-producer Diplo also dropped his collaboration with the brand bathed in tie-dye prints and glow-in-the-dark Jibbitz. 

It seems like the Crocs craziness is not stopping anytime soon. Luxury fashion house Balenciaga has teamed up with Crocs for their Spring ‘22 collection, making this the second time the brands have collaborated. Here’s a look at the Balenciaga Crocs 2.0 in all of their meme-worthy glory.

To say that these Balenciaga Crocs are unusual is an understatement. We don’t think anyone has ever looked at a pair of clogs and said: “hey I need those with heels”, but here we are. 

While their use is not apparent, stilettos can be associated with being a bit provocative, so perhaps heeled-crocs will become the new sexy.

And, who knows? These Balenciaga Crocs might be the comfiest heels you’ve ever worn. After all, weren’t we all rocking these clogs for their comfort and convenience back in the day?

Balenciaga unveiled the Crocs stilettos in 3 colourways: Black, Grey and Green. If you really think about it, any other loud colour like Nicki Minaj’s hot pink or Diplo’s tie-dye would equally break the internet.

The luxury fashion brand also showcased their Crocs rainboots, a calf-high version of their Classic Clogs that retains all its rubbery goodness.

These kicks are faithful to the structure of typical rainboots but boast Crocs’ signature perforated silhouette on the front.

The rainboots come in the same 3 colourways as the stilettos: green, black and grey.

It’s worth nothing that this isn’t the first collaboration between the 2 brands. Back in 2017, they teamed up to release platform clogs decked out with Jibbitz charms. When they were unveiled on the runway, it basically shocked the internet, making for some good marketing.

On the other hand, it was love at first sight for some netizens. Whether they like it ironically or not, we’re not really sure.

You Will Either Love Or Hate Balenciaga Crocs 2.0 

Although there is a lot of buzz surrounding Balenciaga Crocs 2.0 on the internet right now, not much is known about the actual release details of the footwear. There is speculation that the kicks will cost around US$850 (~S$1,125) per pair, the price of the platform clogs. Whether you love them or hate them, Crocs is likely going to continue to make headlines with their pieces and current momentum. .
