Brides are stirring up controversy by wearing Crocs at their wedding
| Last updated
It’s become an increasingly popular trend that brides are opting for foam clogs rather than rocking a pair of stilettos on their special day.
To be honest, people who wear Crocs at work praise the shoe for being incredibly comfortable, so you can't blame the bride for wanting to relax so they can dance the night away.
Many brides on social media have posted themselves wearing the glittery clog.
One TikTok user by the name of emlaycockx, even shared a step-by-step video of how she decorated her crocs before her nuptials.
It took her 10 hours to create her wedding masterpiece and she loved the end result.
However, the video left many divided, as one person wrote: “Please no … why would you want to wear them to your wedding?!!!”
Another said: “Why would you do this?”
While a third chimed in: “I want wedding crocs for the school run.”
I mean, that’s one way to make a statement to fellow PTA members.
Another TikTok user under the name ‘chloemore88’ even took it a step further by adding huge silk bows along with a dazzling Dior emblem to the sandals.
However, many viewers were left disgusted.
One person commented: “Wedding crocs!? Did I hear that right?”
Another said: “I mean at least they're in sports mode.”
A third shared: “I think that’s going a bit far.”
However, some seemed to love the trend, as one person said: “ Omg I am doing this.”
While another wrote: “They must be for the wedding reception so she's not in heels or heavy shoes.”
You may have noticed crocs have made a bit of a comeback in the past few years.
While the shoe was everywhere in the early 2000s, it had been banished almost entirely from the fashion scene.
That is, until now.
Megan Welch, General Manager Asia Pacific of Crocs, sat down and told Daily Mail that she believes the shoe has been revived as its a simple yet durable piece of footwear that allows for self-expression.
“I think [the popularity] is a combination of factors - one being our Classic Clog is the best canvas for self-expression,” Ms Welch said.
She added: “Our Jibbitz charms are an accessible form of personalisation that you can change out based on your mood, the season, or if you get new ones - and it allows people to ‘come as they are’ through their Crocs.”
Looks like they're not leaving anytime soon.
