Everything you need to know about trading in your old shoe nightmares for the good stuff. Or maybe you just want to get in on the trend with a style upgrade on your own.

Shoe

The perforated rubber shoes that look surprisingly identical to the popular signature ‘Crocs’ footwear has been priced at USD 420 for men (Rs 30,660 approximately) and USD 470 for women (Rs 34,000 approximately). The slip-on sandals have been launched in three colours each. While the men’s range can be purchased in red, green or blue shades, the women’s shoes are available in white, black and lilac.

While being eerily similar to a pair of Crocs, the Gucci rubber shoes come with its signature GG logo. But while Crocs are known for their casual, sporty look, the Gucci ones appear slightly more formal and closer to the Italian fashion house’s stylebook. This is also not the firsr time Gucci has created a stir with its shoe line. Earlier in 2021, the brand was trolled mercilessly for an advertisement for a collection of sports and mountaineering gear in collaboration with The North Face for ad featuring models wearing heels while trekking.

Brand

Instead, the brand collaboration featured in this show was with Crocs. Titled “Balenciaga Crocs 2.0,” the partnership features heeled mules (yes!) and chunky-soled rain boots and sneakers. This partnership comes on the heels (ha!) of a stellar year for Crocs, which included sought-after collaborations with celebs like Justin Bieber, Bad Bunny, and Diplo, and even an Oscars red carpet appearance.

On Sunday, Balenciaga showed its spring 2022 collection, featuring an array of “conceptual interpretations” of Gucci accessories, according to the show notes, and the second installment of Balenciaga’s collaboration with popular clog brand Crocs. To make matters even more surreal, director Quentin Deronzier scanned and used model Eliza Douglas’ face on all looks. (Source: www.refinery29.com)
