Balenciaga has teamed up with Crocs again for another collaboration. The two-piece shoe collection was unveiled at the Balenciaga Spring 2022 “Balenciaga Clones” fashion show on Sunday(June 6th). Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia reimagined the iconic Crocs clogs, adding an eye-catching stiletto, tube heel. Along with the heeled clogs, the power fashion house included a rain boot clog in a platform format. Both styles will be available in a green, gray & black hue, with the “Balenciaga” name shown in a subtle, visible manner.
“It’s a very innovative shoe,” Gvasalia told Vogue UK in 2017. “It’s light, it’s a one-piece foam mold and to me these kind of techniques and working with these kind of materials is very Balenciaga.”
Actually, this isn’t the first time Crocs puts out a high-heeled version either – the infamous “Cyprus V Heel” debuted in 2018 and sold out on the brand’s website. But naturally, people had a lot to say about the new Balenciaga shoes online:

Balenciaga’s first collaboration with Crocs from 2018 sold out the first day and very quickly so I know this will have the same response. What are your thoughts on these Balenciaga x Crocs shoes?
Would you wear the new BALENCIAGA X CROCS?
