Crocs might just be the indestructible cockroaches of the fashion industry.
They’ve been relentlessly mocked, teased, turned into memes, and nevertheless, they persisted.
Now, the latest incarnation of the controversial sandals comes in high heel form - and they're just as aesthetically displeasing as you’d expect.
While the original Croc vindicates its questionable appearance by marketing itself as a comfort shoe, complete with arch support and a water-friendly design, its fashion-forward counterpart is lacking in such justification, given that heels are notoriously uncomfortable, squishy soles or not.
However, in an admirable display of perseverance, the shoe brand insists that its new high heel variations will provide all-day cushion and comfort.
At least they aren't trying to convince anyone they're the next Manolos - but, are they?
Balenciaga released its own shoe made in collaboration with Crocs in October 2017, which are set on an “exaggerated foam platform” which will have you tottering at five inches above your normal height.
The rubber sandals have an added designer flair, as they are adorned with playful charms and Balenciaga logo pins.
They remain hugely popular, selling out before they'd even been released in pre-sales on Barney's website.
They are now available on Net-a-porter for a humble price of 645.
If that's a little too steep for you to achieve your Croc-induced dreams, you might be better off opting for the high heel option released by the brand itself, which costs just 40 on Amazon.
