Designer Releases 'Luxury' $216 Version Of Crocs

Despite the foam clogs being mocked by many since they debuted in the mid-2000s, they have been worn by some high-profile people including the Duchess of Cambridge, Helen Mirren Jimmy Fallon.

But Scottish fashion designer Christopher Kane has decided to make a somewhat ugly looking shoe, even worse.

You can pick up a normal pair of Crocs for £20 ($26), but these bad boys are being sold for a cool £165 ($216) online, reduced from £275 ($360).

Yes, you read that right.

For the price of an airfare, you too could be walking around in Crocs with small rocks attached to them.

Naturally, people on social media have been very vocal about their opinions.

On his website, Mr Kane says: "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."

Excuse me, but did he just say he'd like to be seeing women in evening dresses slapping a pair of these on and heading out for a night on the town?

I completely understand them being used in places like hospitals because of their comfortability, but I cannot imagine them being worn for formal purposes.

We'll have to see whether these become the 'thing' to have.
