Love them or hate them, Crocs are here to stay.
The multifaceted shoe has been a heavily-debated topic of discussion in fashion since its birth. From platforms like ihatecrocs.com to brand collaborations with cultural icons such as Bad Bunny, it seems as though the public has long been at odds over Crocs. Luckily for the enthusiasts, Crocs won 2021’s Shoe of The Year—and we’re not mad about it.
Testing out this year’s MVP for ourselves, Highsnobiety staff members gifted each other a pair of Crocs, Jibbitz and all, to see what all of the hype is about. Take a look at how we wear them and shop our selects below.
Jessa & Graz
Jessa "I got Graz the fuzzy white crocs because after all, it's winter in LA—we gotta get cozy and I know he loves to keep it clean and minimal. I chose the barbell and guac Jibbitz cause he loves to get a workout in and you know he’s always paying extra for that guac. Also, we are both 90s babies so I wanted to get him something so he'd know it was from me."
Graz "For this season, Jessa and I both got the Crocs the fuzz-lined clog. Jessa really enjoys the warm, fuzzy liner. It’s incredibly light and easy to wear. It’s so perfect for any casual walk outside and for working from home"
Rhianna & Simi
Rhianna "One thing you need to know about Simi is that whenever you see her in the office, she’s always blessing you with amazing energy, she’s our office angel!! And so of course I had to get her this all-white, decked-out fur pair to match that. Keeping her feeling good and of course, bodying her office fits. The bug and star are in memory of our summers in Berlin together, and the lock represents our bond."
Simi "Rhi rocks some of the best all-black fits you will ever see, so what color to get her was out of the question. The fuzzy-lined Crocs are perfect for cold Berlin winter days and I want her to feel cozy no matter if she is at home or wearing them to the office. The key symbolizes how she’s always there for me and knows EXACTLY what to say to make me feel calm, and for the coral Jibbitz… well, she is actually deathly afraid of the deep sea."
George & Hyo
George "Of course, Hyo gifted me the same Crocs that I gifted him. The Classic All-Terrain Clog was the obvious choice! Climbing gawd is always outdoors, so I wanted to make sure he got a pair of clogs that would hold up while he's hanging in the mountains, and the glove Jibbitz was my favorite little nod to add on."
Hyo "I got George a Classic All-Terrain Clog with Jibbitz inspired by nature so he can find himself some more time in outdoor spaces and feel like a rugged outdoorsman with his flower, raindrop, and Yoshi Jibbitz on his feet. Now my boy is ready to tackle anything and live his best life!"
