In its latest quest to make
fetch Crocs happen, it seems Balenciaga may have actually succeeded. I know, I know, these are the same shoes that kids wear to Disneyland and your grandma wears due to doctor's orders, but Balenciaga's latest take on the rubber footwear is surprisingly chic.
The brand introduced a Croc-inspired, hot pink stiletto pump that looks straight out of Barbie's Dream House. The ultra-pointy rubber heel somehow even manages to look cool with its kitschy, Croc-inspired pins and embellishments typically reserved for those who still partake in recess.
Despite the fact that these shoes look half Croc, half real-life Barbie shoe, I still think I want a pair (yes, I still have 999 on standby, just in case). First of all, they're great for gardening my dying apartment plants in:
And you can also hear the sound of the apocalypse coming when you put them up to your ear:
Of course, the price of the Croc-inspired heels has yet to be announced, but you can expect them to go for slightly higher than a pair of £30 Crocs (think upwards of £1,000). It's unclear whether this is a collaboration with Crocs, or if Balenciaga just took inspiration from the shoe, but this isn't the first time the fashion house has introduced it's luxury take on the rubber footwear
The brand previously sent sky-high platform Crocs , but those shoes were slightly less wearable than the new Barbie pink stilettos.
If the Year of Our Lord 2018 has taught us anything, it's that the most insane of things is possible, even a pair of Crocs looking decidedly cool.
