In a move that nobody asked for, the luxury brand Balenciaga has teamed up with Crocs to create a stiletto version of the shoe. Yes, high-heeled crocs.
They debuted at a virtual fashion show online as part of Balenciaga’s 2022 spring collection. No price has been announced for the shoe yet — but according to Complex, Balenciaga’s $850 platform clogs reportedly sold out before even being available in stores.

If crocs with heels is acceptable, bring back Jordan’s with heels.
