Would You Wear A Pair Of Balenciaga's High-Fashion Crocs?

Would You Wear A Pair Of Balenciaga's High-Fashion Crocs?”

Fashion is all about creating memorable "moments", and while Dolce & Gabbana served up food-inspired fashions and Jeremy Scott took the nostalgic route with My Little Pony-inspired pieces, Balenciaga has one-upped them all with fashion platform Crocs. A luxury brand has attempted to change the sandals' reputation by taking it all the way to Paris Fashion Week.

One can imagine the furrowed eyebrows, the skeptical head-tilts and perhaps the quiet ringing of involuntary gasps from attendees at Balenciaga's Spring/Summer 2018 show, when the brand's designer Demna Gavasalia sent platforms Crocs (complete with the shoe charms mind you) down the catwalk. At 10 centimeters tall, Balenciaga literally took Crocs to a new level on October 1 during Paris Fashion Week. It's light, it's a one-piece foam mould and to me these kind of techniques and working with these kind of materials is very Balenciaga.

The Foam shoes will be available exclusively at Balenciaga points of sale and on the Balenciaga website for spring '18. At London Fashion Week, Christopher Kane sent down Swarovski-encrusted Crocs on the runway, his third season collaborating with the brand.

Kane said working with Crocs was his "most controversial collaboration... which makes it all the more fun", in a statement.
