What was once one of the most hated shoes in fashion has quickly become a must-have item for shoe lovers around the world.
Crocs, the shoes made from a lightweight and odour-resistant resin have made a serious comeback in 2021, with celebrities like Post Malone, Justin Bieber and Arielle Vandenberg sporting the shoes.
The fashion publication ’Who What Wear’ tried to warn us about the return of the Croc late last year, and they credited the return to the rise in more relaxed and comfortable clothing due to the pandemic.
According to reports the global fashion search platform, Lyst, revealed in their 2020 report that Crocs were the eighth most-wanted item in the world.
The hole-speckled shoes are having a big moment right now especially on Instagram where millions of people are posting snaps of themselves in their Crocs.
People are also enjoying the fact that they can customize the look of their shoes by adding ’Jibbitz’ which are basically stickers that go into the holes in the Crocs.
Recently the Crocs Instagram account, announced that they would be releasing a pair of clogs inspired by Lightning McQueen from the movie Cars. Fans everywhere were excited for the drop, so much so that when it was finally released the shoe started trending on Twitter and was later sold out.
The evolution of the brightly coloured shoes has definitely played a role in its sudden return into fashion. The collaborations with celebrities like Justin Bieber and Priyanka Chopra also impacted the brand positively.
Here are some Crocs that prove that these shoes are here to stay.
The famous Lightning McQueen clogs that people are raving about.
The collaboration with Justin Bieber brought the lavender Crocs, which I am sure that even people who hate Crocs can agree that this pair is a bit cute.
If you are still on the fence about these shoes, surely this tie-dye pair worn by YouTube sensation Bretman Rock will sway you.
The classic sandals
Rapper Rico Nasty’s pink classic sandals that she customized with jibbitz, would be the perfect addition to a cute daytime outfit.
Everyone loves a good comfortable pair of slides especially during the hotter months, so it is no surprise that there is a wide range of Crocs slides available.
Pairing them with socks might lead to some judgemental stares but go ahead and live your best life.
Crocs have been around for years, and this is not the first time fashion has tried to make them popular again. According to reports, Christopher Kane and Balenciaga tried creating high-fashion versions of the shoe in 2017 and 2018 respectively, but they were not as popular as the shoes are now.
Thanks to influencers and celebrities all we want to wear this year are cute pairs of Crocs.
