An unexpected Balenciaga x Crocs collaboration was unveiled at the labels's Paris Fashion Week presentation for Spring/Summer 2018. Known as one of the world's most unfavorable footwear styles, Crocs are more synonymous with comfort and durability than they are aesthetically pleasing.

This bold collaboration remixes the classic clog with an added platform heel, along with Balenciaga's logo and vibrant embellishment details. Gaining mixed reviews from fashion fans, the already viral collaboration speaks to head designer and Vetements founder Demna Gvasalia's ability to reframe unflattering pieces into those that are covetable by streetwear-obsessed Millennials.

This luxury-minded shoe collaboration combines bold silhouettes, and colors with comfort, making it surprisingly functional for consumers looking to make a statement without losing sight of practicality.
