But the colorful clogs weren’t always such a fashion darling. Dreamed up by three college friends during a sailing trip, Crocs were originally designed to be a comfortable boat shoe.
For most of the early 2000s, they had a distinctly unglamorous image in the fashion world – not surprising for a crowd that loves a stiletto! Read on to see how Crocs conquered the A-list.
A Fashion Shoe-In
The popularity of Crocs soon skyrocketed far beyond the yacht club.
Super comfy and available in a range of funky colors, they quickly gained fans among people who were on their feet all day, like nurses, teachers, or waiters.
But they also had a bit of an “uncool” rep, with Time Magazine naming them as one of the worst inventions in 2010.
But there is one celeb who still can’t stand Crocs… Scroll to find out who!
Croc Of Gold
Once seen as something your rather unfashionable granny would wear, the humble Croc is now gracing the feet of the rich and beautiful, with even Kim Kardashian sporting a rather weird KFC-inspired pair.
However, one style icon has made her distaste for the shoe VERY clear. Scroll to see what she had to say.
“I’d Rather Die”
Justin Bieber has to be one of the world’s most famous Crocs fans, even designing a range for the brand back in 2020.
But, when he decided to send Victoria Beckham a pair, the famously “posh” star had a rather strong reaction
‘OK, this is so kind of Justin to send me some Crocs. Never worn a pair of Crocs. This did make me laugh. I mean, it is the thought that counts. Thank you so much.’
A strong reaction indeed. Read on to see if her reaction hurt the Crocs brand.
Some love them, some hate them… But you have to admit that comfy, funky, unique Crocs have taken the world by storm.
And with superstar fans like Ariana Grande, it’s unlikely that Victoria Beckham’s diss will do the brand much harm.
In fact, her own son, Romeo Beckham, appears to have a taste for them!
Don’t worry though, Victoria – fashions come and go, and in ten years Crocs might even go the way of skinny jeans.
