No one does Crocs collabs better than Balenciaga. Sure, they're pricier than most of the clog brands' other team-ups but Balenciaga's Crocs boots, heels, and slide sandals go far beyond anything anyone else is doing.
Slide sandals, you say? Why, yes, meet the Balenciaga x Crocs Pool Slide.
Available now Balenciaga's web shop and flagship stores for $565 apiece (told you these weren't a bargain), Balenciaga's Crocs Pool Slide is basically what it sounds like: a backless, open-toed sandal inspired by the stuff you slip on for summertime lounging.
Compare to the in-house Crocs slide sandals, which are much sleeker by comparison. They also don't say Balenciaga on the forefoot strap, so there's that.
The Pool Slides are also Balenciaga's most affordable Crocs collab, believe it or not: the Boot is $695 and the HardCrocs are $950. Not that fans are much put off by the price tag, though, 'cuz each style sold out on Balenciaga's website immediately after launching.
Curiously, the Balenciaga men's site only offers the green and black Pool Slides in larger sizes, while the Balenciaga women's site stocks all of the colorways seen in the campaign, plus special floral and tie-dye-printed pairs which, IMO, are the best.
After all, if you're going to break the bank for some Crocs, why not go all the way with some seasonally-appropriate patterns?
