[UPDATE] February 2, 2018 09:26 EST Just moments after Balenciaga x Crocs’ Platform Clogs were made available to pre-order online, both pairs in the drop, unfortunately, sold out. And did so in record time.
However for those who were looking to get their hands on a pair, fear not, as this pre-release is likely to be the first of many drops. For more on how you can cop this crazy silhouette when they become available again, check out the original post below.
Last October, Balenciaga unveiled an official footwear collaboration with Crocs on the runway in Paris. The Crocs, naturally, divided opinion.
Critics thought that Balenciaga was trying too hard and collaborated for the wrong reasons, while others might not have loved the design but appreciated the attempt at something different.
Now, several months on, the Balenciaga Platform Clogs are officially available for pre-order on sites like Barneys New York.
They come in two colors, pink and “toast,” which is more like a dark tan color. A rather genius customization option in the form of pins can be attached to the perforated upper.
Retail is $850 because, well, they’re still Balenciaga, so if you’re flush with cash and want to be what might resemble a walking meme, head to Barneys via our links below to secure yourself a pair. In the likely even that the links lead to an unavailable page, be sure to stay tuned as we will update you as soon as the collaboration becomes available again.
