Crocs — the unisex, foam staple favored by grandmothers around the globe — are officially the hottest shoe of the season.
Last fall, Balenciaga debuted platform Crocs on its runway. The rubber clogs, which retail for $850, finally became available for preorder on Barney’s website last week — and they sold out within hours.
The controversial shoes have 4-inch platforms and kitschy pin embellishments.
This isn’t the first time fashion has flirted with the rubber clogs. Designer Christopher Kane showcased rock-emblazoned Crocs at his spring-summer 2017 show.
