Christopher Kane's Crystal-Embellished Crocs: Would You Wear Them?

Hang on, did fugly just get fashionable​ again?


We've seen our fair share of fugly-turned-fashionable shoes in recent years. Pool sliders, Birkenstocks, flatforms, dad sandals. 

In fact, it has become something of a sign of a true fashion game-changer when a designer can turn the truly heinous into something everyone (or nearly everyone) would happily sell their soul for. Just look at Vetements, or Isabel Marant's hidden-edge sneakers. Let's be honest, beautiful they were not.

'I always work with unexpected items and combinations, transforming the everyday into desirable luxury. I wanted to bring my own stamp and DNA to Crocs' classic clog shoe and achieve something really special,' said Kane.

'The marble print feels very earthy and I often think of Crocs in a very grounded way, worn with either an evening dress or with jeans, and adding the rock crystals brings a bit of luxury to this everyday style. Crocs are arguably the most comfortable shoe, I love that they are slightly awkward and might be perceived by some as 'ugly'. They have a very naïve and childlike shape which I especially like when they look extra clunky on the foot,' he added.
