- Balenciaga and Crocs have released a pair of stiletto heels styled after clogs
- Shoes combine classic Crocs with elevated heel, will be released in 2022
- They have been mocked online by shoppers who have called the shoes ‘painful’
Balenciaga stiletto crocs now exist – and social media users are horrified at the expensive fashion item.
The luxury Paris-based fashion house has teamed up with Crocs to create stiletto clogs. combining the classic resin shoe with a sturdy elevated heel in a variety of bright colours.
It is unclear how much the shoes, which will be released in 2022, will cost, however, a previous Balenciaga and Crocs collaborations set shoppers back £600, rather than the £39.99 a regular pair of Crocs usually costs.
They were met with mixed reactions online where some Twitter users said the shoes were ‘painful’ and unnecessary, and others said they couldn’t wait to get their toes on a pair.

Many people didn’t like the shoes and called them ‘painful’ when they surfaced online at the weekend
The ‘Balenciaga Crocs 2.0’ were announced on Sunday, to be released next year, and their price is still to be confirmed.
They are available in a range of colours. The same collection also includes rain boots with a platform sole, for those seeking something a bit more sturdy.
Online, people had mixed feelings about the novelty shoes, and many were not convinced by the collaboration.
‘I mean… wtf Balenciaga and Crocs are thinking they are doing with this,’ one person wrote.
Platform rain boots will also be released next year as part of the collaboration. Their price is also yet to be confirmed
‘I love crocs but a Balenciaga x Crocs collab is what we DON’T need,’ added someone else.
‘What the f is wrong with people at Balenciaga? Can’t decide whether it’s a joke or just making fun of people who buy these,” another user said.
‘Please don’t. This is painful,’ commented someone else.
Several others simply tweeted “no”, while others shared gifs to show their distress at the footwear.
The shoes will be available in several colours, included black, and their price is still unknown ahead of their release next year
However, while many people were baffled by the design, some users are already wondering how to get their hands on a pair.
‘I need those croc heels ASAP,’ one person said.
‘Anyone with information on how to get the Balenciaga crocs will be rewarded handsomely,’ another person wrote.
This is not the first time Balenciaga and Crocs have collaborated.
In 2017, Demna Gvasalia and Christopher Kane even called the brand’s iconic footwear the ‘world’s comfiest shoes’.
‘We were inspired by Crocs and we worked with them on a Balenciaga reinterpretation,’ Demna told French Vogue in 2017.
‘Balenciaga x Crocs isn’t impossible, the question of taste is a very subjective value.
‘We’ll see if this works in six months’ time in the stores.’
