Just when you thought things were moving along nicely for Demna Gvasalia over at Balenciaga, he pulls a crazy and sends these down the runway at his recent Spring-Summer 2018 show in Paris. Not only did it cause many heads to turn (that subsequently caused whiplash to all), the hordes on Instagram and Twitter almost immediately declared it a no-go.
Yes, this post is all about that now infamous pair of Balenciaga-branded Crocs sandals that went on pre-order as soon as the show ended. Made taller with a thicker sole and festooned with special Balenciaga-themed pins, these sandals pretty much stole the entire show. Not many remembered the clothes, or the bags, just Crocs, Crocs, Crocs.
And as much as you may hate them, it won’t really matter because they are already sold out, even if they were priced at USD915 a pair. So there you have it, folks, it doesn’t matter what you sell, as long as it’s branded, people will pay for it anyway. Even Crocs.
