If ever you were hesitant to wear Crocs in public, we鈥檙e here to tell you that they鈥檙e *officially* cool聽鈥 at least according to聽luxury design house, Balenciaga,聽and its fashion-forward fans.


The brand debuted platform versions of the rubber shoe at their Spring/Summer 2018 Paris Fashion Week show last October, where the footwear was flaunted in yellow, pink, green, and taupe shades and adorned with kitschy rubber pins (think avocados, pugs, and roses).

Critics were skeptical at the time, but apparently these puppies are all the rage now. In fact, even if you *wanted* to get in on the trend, you couldn鈥檛: Barney鈥檚 launched the shoes for pre-order on February 1, Dazed reports, and they鈥檙e already *completely* sold out.

TBD on when the brand will restock, but you might want to set aside some cash in the meantime. At $850(!) these babies will cost you about 22 times as much as聽the standard version. Not to mention, this isn鈥檛 the first time the ubiquitous shoe has gone couture, so it doesn鈥檛 look like this trend is going anywhere soon. Until we win the lottery, we think we鈥檒l stick to these *much* more affordable聽(yet equally as cute)聽kicks!

What do you think of these platform Crocs? Sound off @BritandCo!
