These platform Crocs from Balenciaga will tear your feelings apart

October 6, 2017

Possibly the most unexpected moment of fashion week happened during famed fashion house Balenciaga’s show. As models strutted down the runway and the audience began to take everything in, one thing stood out. There, on the feet of the very models gliding down the catwalk, were the shoes we never thought we’d see on the runway. There, on Balenciaga’s runway, were Crocs…and the craziest part is that they looked so cool.

Possibly the most unexpected moment of fashion week happened during famed fashion house Balenciaga’s show. As models strutted down the runway and the audience began to take everything in, one thing stood out. There, on the feet of the very models gliding down the catwalk, were the shoes we never thought we’d see on the runway. There, on Balenciaga’s runway, were Crocs…and the craziest part is that they looked so cool.
Leave it to creative director Demna Gvasalia to produce a platform version of the plastic shoe, one we actually want to wear all season long.
@balenciaga just brought the Crocs game to new heights. Swipe ⬅️ to get a second look at the shoe they sent down the runway in Paris. A post shared by Crocs Shoes (@crocs) on Oct 1, 2017 at 8:23am PDT
Balenciaga and Crocs teamed up for this runway shoe, allowing the classic silhouette we know from our school days to get a new, and fashionable, makeover.
These are the cool older sister of the Crocs we wore, and now they come with a major platform. With multiple colors on the runway, and plenty of DIY bedazzling to boot, this may have been the most unexpected surprise at fashion week. Now, while Demna is known for being influenced by subcultures and youth culture alike — like when he made Balenciaga’s version of JNCO jeans — we wouldn’t have guessed that Crocs would be his next move.
OMG! Alerta fashionista 🚨 Balenciaga está causando más polémica que Lindsay Lohan en 2006 👀 La exclusiva casa de moda parisina revolucionó todo en La Semana de la Moda de París. Con una apuesta muy arriesgada, el director creativo optó por darle un twist a los Crocs, un twist de exactamente 10cm. Los polémicos zapatos se transformaron en plataformas para acompañar la colección primavera-verano 2018 y las redes no dejan de enloquecer al respecto. ¿Ustedes qué opinan? ¿Yes or no?

On the runway, the shoes were paired with oversized smock dresses in neon yellow and flowing baby blue slips with florals layered underneath. You could just as easily pair your own version of these Crocs with a bodysuit and skirt, or even a simple tee and jeans. They were finished off with Balenciaga pins for that extra pinch of fashion.
