    Default Balenciaga Croc Sandals for Spring 2018




    Everyone’s favorite shoe to hate is back with a high-fashion twist. According to Vogue, the audience let out an audible gasp at the Balenciaga show in Paris when a model walked down the runway wearing none other than platform Crocs. Yes, the foam clogs adored by Mario Batali and loathed by just about everyone else. The Balenciaga version, which comes in colors ranging from a steel gray to school-bus yellow, is 10-cm high and adorned with charms like flowers, owls, and the American flag.

    Balenciaga isn’t the first luxury brand to take a chance on the infamous clog. Christopher Kane debuted his interpretation last September, with marble prints and rock-crystal attachments. “Crocs are arguably the most comfortable shoe, I love that they are slightly awkward and might be perceived by some as ‘ugly,’” Kane told Vogue at the time. “They have a very naïve and childlike shape which I especially like when they look extra clunky on the foot.”

    Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia explained his own rationale for re-introducing Crocs to the world of high-fashion, telling Vogue that he tried on the shoe for the first time this summer.

    “It’s a very innovative shoe. It’s light, it’s a one-piece foam mould and to me these kind of techniques and working with these kind of materials is very Balenciaga,” he said. “In the future you will be able to 3-D print them at home because they are all one piece.”

    As if the regular Crocs weren’t the ugliest shoes on Earth.

    I don't like Croc sandals. But I do love Balenciaga bags. They are absolutely gorge!!!! Actually, I've been eyeing on a Balenciaga motorcycle bag for a while and the hefty price prevents me from taking the plunge on buying one. I've always wanted a motorcycle bag! So now, I am on the fence about getting an authentic Balenciaga or a replica one. Althoug, after my friend sent me this Balenciaga replica guide, I think going for a knockoff is not such a bad idea after all. You will be surprised by the amazing quality counterfeits are these days. It's def-ly worth a read!
