As comfy as Crocs are, the hole-filled kicks aren’t exactly known as high fashion staples, despite the best efforts of style influencers such as Susie Bubble and Aminita Bella. We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that’s all about to change, however, as the brand has just teamed up with Drew Barrymore on a limited-edition collection, upping their cool cred exponentially.
Following the Spring/Summer 2017 offerings of Christopher Kane, the company’s latest collab, dubbed Drew Barrymore ❤️ Crocs Color-Block Collection, has us rethinking everything we knew about Crocs…and the best part is, it’s affordable AF.
The Flower Beauty mogul designed seven pairs of color-block Crocs with fun embellishments, all priced between $30 for kids’ to $50 for adults.
As the mother of two told Footwear News, the partnership was a natural one, since she’s ALL about comfort. “I know I can’t wear anything I don’t feel good in,” she told the outlet, adding, “I don’t know how Carrie Bradshaw walked around New York in heels all the time [in ‘Sex and the City’]. That was pretty unrealistic. I wouldn’t last three blocks in heels in New York. The majority of my time now is spent in a comfort shoe. It has to be wearable for long periods of time. I am a mom, so I am on my feet all the time. I could not stuff my foot into a Christian Louboutin at this point in my life.”
The partnership is also a reflection of her life values, with the Santa Clarita actress drawing on “love, positivity and the little quirk — or quirks, in my case — that make each of us unique. Working together on these styles was a genuine labor of love and I’m excited to share a piece of my one-of-a-kindness with the world.”
