Yes, Post Malone Designed a Crocs Collection
This just in, Crocs newest collaboration with Post Malone has sold out. Am I confused? Yes. Will I be buying them? Short answer: no. I have yet to be sold on the Crocs situation, the idea of wearing a literal meme isn’t really my vibe. So even though Vogue may claim this to be the unexpected “hottest shoe of the season,” I reject that sentiment and honestly, I reject Crocs.
Recently there has been a wave of ‘ugly but fashion’ and I’ve been kind of on board. I live for the dad vibe but make it fashion (a #cooldad), and it really has brought back some fun trends. But, Crocs really need to stay in their lane. I get it, they were cool back in like 2006 when all the hip ten year olds were stunting with their foam footwear, but that’s in the past. We’ve grown, we’ve matured, and we’ve realized they are just ugly.
That being said, props to Crocs for landing this collab. Post Malone has exploded recently due to his music, but also for his really out there sense of style. For him, the Crocs look works. But for the everyday gal just trying to make it through the day, slapping on a pair of Crocs is not at all practical. They seem to have the strange ability to clash with everything, and are full of holes offering no protection from any kind of weather. So while Post Malone may be able to rock these, I certainly can't.
But if you were planning on snagging some of the rapper’s new footwear, here are some more details as you wait for them to be restocked:
They are pretty affordable, retailing at $59.99 on the Crocs website
They come in 3 colors: white, yellow, and black
The printed pattern is a cartoon with devil horns and you can buy custom jibbetz (don’t act like you don’t know what those are)
So while Madonna and other celebrities have expressed interest in the newest addition to the Crocs family, I certainly will be staying away. But if anyone out there wants to prove me wrong and teach me how to style Crocs, I’m more than willing to learn something from new from the Crocs community.
