A brand once reserved only for orthopedic-bedridden retirees has undergone a fashionable resurgence over the past few seasons thanks to designers like Christopher Kane and Demna Gvasalia of Balenciaga. The duo’s embrace of the “ugly shoe” trend transformed Crocs from a tragic footwear faux pas into a full-on fashion fad.
Who can forget the charm-bedecked platform Crocs Balenciaga sent down its spring/summer 2018 runway? Despite their $850 price tag, the elevated style — in bubble gum pink and yellow — sold out before even hitting stores.
Now, with the well-heeled victories of several successful footwear collaborations under their belt, Crocs is venturing into a new arena — handbags.
The label is teaming up with the LA-based brand PizzaSlime to transform the foamy footwear fixation into a bag.
The limited-edition crossbody — or shall we say Crocsbody — reimagines the label’s standout silhouette into a bag form.
To put it in layman’s terms, it’s a bag that looks like an oversized Croc equipped with a strap and zipper compartments.
The unisex bag comes in yellow and black with 7 custom detachable charms. But, you better act fast because the bags are a limited run. Croc crusaders can purchase the haute handbag on PizzaSlime’s website for a cool $300.
The Crocsbody definitely has its own unique appeal and might not be for everyone. However, if you’re an aspiring street style star looking to get your picture snapped come fashion week, this could be the perfect accessory for you.
