Crocs. A simple, comfortable, more-or-less ugly shoe that you wear maybe to the beach or just to go outside and get your mail. How much for a pair? ....... $360!
Fashion designer Christopher Kane decided to "put his stamp" on the otherwise $26 shoes and released a statement on why:
"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 and achieve something really special. The marble print feels very earthy and I often think of Crocs shoes 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, and 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."
What do you think?
