Balenciaga is trying hard, real hard.
The famous brand left jaws on the floor as models hit the runway in platform crocs – seriously, these are two of our least fav shoes. But that’s not even where it stops. They were in multiple colors from grey to neon yellow, meaning there’s one to match any outfit of yours…
Some were super fancy and included American flags, flowers and owls – because some crocs just need to be extra.
However, it seems not everything a big high-end fashionable label does is cool. People freaked out on social media, dissing the 10-inch shoes (yes, 10 inches!).
A few days before, Christopher Kane also showed off some crocs on the catwalk (croc co. has to be feeling pretty good right now – it’s like an ex getting dumped by the girl they cheated on with you).
“I love that they are slightly awkward and might be perceived by some as ugly,” explained the designer. “They have a very naïve and childlike shape, which I especially like when they look extra clunky on the foot.”
For now, we have a feeling croc-shaming will live on. But there is ONE set of good news here – the crocs from Kane are available on the website for $59.99. Finally, something from the runway we can afford!
