Let’s be honest, the only reason they’re still making ‘em is because someone’s still wearing ‘em. Even for naysayers of such exemplary efforts in ugly footwear, there’s still that teeny weeny bit of you that’s curious about these rubber clogs by Crocs – you know, like the idea of electronic cigarettes to a non-smoker. Having already established itself within the grassroots of fashion, Crocs has been spending a considerable amount of time on the campaign trail to help raise its profile amongst the fashion set with the hopes of gaining some street cred in the process. And we’ll admit it; interests were piqued the moment Malone, Bad Bunny, Bieber came on board. So, who’s next? (No, not BTS – you might just have to wait a wee bit longer for such a deal.) Enter London-based skate brand Palace with the hopes of pairing rubber clogs with skate decks. Palace’s take on the Classic clogs tackles the camo trend head on with desert brown versions that vibe with the Duck Dynasty dress code. But the real reason you might be into this – we’re guessing – is because of the Jibbitz, those plastic charms that decorate the holes on the clogs. Palace has customised its own versions that you can’t get anywhere else. It has also replaced the Crocs logo on the hinge of the footwear with its tri logo, not that anyone would mistake those for non-Crocs. Palace claims that by wearing these clogs, “you instantly become a better chef.” We’ll take it. The summer 2021 collection, which these clogs are part of, drops on May 7.
