Crocs, the brand once known for its comfortable yet controversial clogs, has transformed its public image through a series of high-profile collaborations. Over the years, these partnerships have not only enhanced the brand’s fashion credentials but also expanded its market reach. Here’s a look at some of Crocs’ most successful collaborations.

Post Malone x Crocs

One of Crocs’ earliest and most successful collaborations was with American singer-songwriter Post Malone. Known for his eclectic fashion sense, Post Malone helped design a series of Crocs that featured his unique aesthetic. Each release, from the first to the fifth, sold out within minutes. These designs included unique Jibbitz charms and bold colorways that resonated well with fans of both the artist and the brand.

Balenciaga x Crocs

When luxury fashion house Balenciaga teamed up with Crocs, the fashion world took notice. This collaboration redefined what was considered high fashion, featuring platform clogs and rain boots that merged Balenciaga’s avant-garde style with Crocs’ comfort. The partnership was a hit, showing that even high fashion was embracing the so-called “ugly” shoe trend.

KFC x Crocs

The Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) collaboration with Crocs was another standout project that combined whimsy with wearable art. These Crocs featured a fried chicken print with a chicken-scented Jibbitz, encapsulating the essence of KFC in a shoe. This quirky and aromatic collaboration was an instant viral sensation.
