(NewsNation Now) – Luxury fashion brand Balenciaga has unveiled its take on the next big thing in post-pandemic fashion: Crocs stiletto heels and high boots.
Demna Gvasalia’s latest designs debuted on Sunday as part of Balenciaga’s spring 2022 collection, but it’s not yet clear how much they’ll cost.
“Balenciaga’s Spring 22 presentation looks at our changing senses of reality through the prism of technology. We see our world through a filter: perfected, polished, conformed, photoshopped, ”Balenciaga said in a description of the collection.
The Crocs pumps, boots and sliders are part of the second collaboration between the two brands. The last time Balenciaga and Crocs teamed up, they unveiled platform shoes that cost $ 850 and sold out almost instantly.
The reaction has been mixed.
“I don’t want to live in a world where this Croc stylus is real. That is true,” Twitter user @JrMcGrail wrote.
Again, another user has a more open mind. “I need to see someone wearing this crocodile stylus,” she said.
“This crocodile stylus looks like a real life emoji,” @HOLYxKEYEL wrote.
Same democrat Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi spoke with, “If Orwell wrote it today, O’Brien’s line in 1984 would have been ‘If you want a picture of the future, imagine a Stiletto Croc stamped on a human face – forever.'”
Crocs has a history of creative collaborations over the past few weeks, spanning everything from pop stars like Justin Bieber and Diplo to brands like KFC.
