Just when you think the 2000’s Crocs trend are put away for the rest of eternity, designer house Balenciaga showcases a very unique pair at Fashion Week. Not only are these your average Crocs form design, Balenciaga turned them into towering platforms, with plenty of embellished abstracted charms. Although this is an uncommon take on the shoe, the look does not match well with a designer name. The piece also does appear a little tacky to be paired with some of the Fashion Week pieces in Balenciaga’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection.

Although the look may put a bad word out there in the industry for Balenciaga, the company will now have the spotlight with these new “designer Crocs.” Many people are calling them “meme bait,” which may be not that far from true. These shoes are far from the ordinary look on the runway, making this the talk of the hour, which may be what the company had looked for initially.
