Proof the world has gone mad!
Someone once said that Crocs is a shoe brand that has destroyed the fashion industry, but now the brand has proven to be untrue. Crocs revenue for second quarter of this year was $190.5 million that’s almost 3 times higher than last year during the same period and now Crocs are considered a fashion item, with many collaborations. And there are some worries the firm might not be able to keep up with demand for its collaborations with the likes of singer Justin Bieber and fashion house Balenciaga because of the pandemic.
A recent collaboration with singer Justin Bieber — $70 lavender Crocs adorned with chipmunk and teddy bear charms — quickly sold out. Crocs also partnered with Balenciaga on an $850 platform clog, KFC on a $60 fried-chicken-print shoe with drumstick charms, and Disney-Pixar for a $50 homage to the “Cars” films that lights up. Next: A Hidden Valley Ranch-themed shoe studded with french fries, veggie sticks and pizza; it sold out in presales.
Demand for Crocs is “stronger than ever” across the world.
Branded by some as the “it-shoe” of the pandemic, people have turned to the divisive footwear company for comfy clogs to pair with leggings and hoodies during lockdown.
Here are just a few Crocs Colabs:
Balenciaga X Crocs
Luxury fashion brand Balenciaga unveiled its latest collaboration with Crocs, a high-heeled version of the company’s signature foam clog.
Creative director Demna Gvasalia’s vision for post-pandemic fashion appears to be a cross between the leisure, chill vibes that Crocs emanate — and that we’ve all become accustomed to in a work-from-home environment — with the “I mean business” confidence a pair of stilettos exudes.
The latest design debuted on Sunday as part of Balenciaga’s Spring 2022 collection, which also includes a pair of knee-high Croc boots.
Post Malone X Crocs
Post Malone and Crocs have teamed up on many occasions.
These include Post Malone x Crocs Duet Max Clog II a pink and black colorway. Post Malone has also helped design a set of Crocs’ charms, called Jibbitz, that includes images of grapes, hearts, rubber ducks and other images inspired by his many tattoos.
Chinatown Market X Crocs
A-based streetwear brand Chinatown Market have now teamed up with Crocs a few times, but their first collaboration saw them produce this astro-turf covered design, playing with the original purpose for the shoe, garden-friendly footwear.
Drew X Crocs
Crocs and Justin Bieber are now onto the second collab with the latest release seeing the shoe dressed in a “Lavender” colorway, complete with the Crocs logo appearing on the backstrap.
Alongside the Classic Clog, Justin Bieber and Crocs have come together to release special-edition oversized Jibbitz. These charms include Theodore and other characters from the wider drew house community.
Additionally, the collection includes a pair of drew-branded socks to support Justin Bieber’s preferred socks and Crocs combination.
