‘Croc’ a load of this…Crocs bags now exist for anyone who wants to be the life and rubber sole of the party.
It’s hard to believe its been 17 years since Crocs first stepped out onto the scene. Those holy (holey) shoes offered comfortable footwear that is durable and wipe clean. However, chances are that unless you’re a nurse or a chef, Crocs are probably your idea of shoe hell.
Now, Crocs are back and snapping at the heels of fashion houses around the world with a crossbody bag to hold your valuables.
In a strange union with LA label Pizzaslime, you can now get your hands/feet on a Crocs crossbody bag. The footbed has been ingeniously replaced with a zipper, while the outside has been adorned with kitsch charms. If you’re already sold, check them out in all their Crocs glory below.

🚨👀🚨 The official Pizzaslime x @Crocs collab REVEALED! So… we went waaaaay outside of the box for this one and turned a Croc into a functional and quality made cross body bag 🙃 Some Facts: Each bag is hand made in LA. Only 50 are being released. The strap is custom made with Pizzaslime woven into it. The detachable Jibbitz (the charms) are custom made for this bag specifically. It’s vailable in yellow and black 😬 WE'RE BEYOND STOKED TO DROP THIS! Over the past few months we've put a lot of time, sweat, and tears into developing this product that has never been made before. It was a looooot harder than it looks. Don’t 😴 on this one! DROPS THURS AT 11AM PST!

If you think someone would have to pay you to buy one of these fashion-forward creations, you’d be dead wrong. The crossbody bag is actually a limited edition run that will cost $300. Available in either black or yellow, the Crocs crossbody bag is sure to run off shelves before fans can even tie a pair of laces.
It may seem like an out-there purchase, but with only 25 of each colour available, there are sure to be enough hipsters willing to part with their cash to pick up a pair. I’ve just checked, and while there are still some online, you’d better hurry.
This isn’t the first time the humble Croc has been given a facelift. You might have read the story about diamond-encrusted Crocs or remember the platform version Demna Gvasalia brought to the runway for Balenciaga’s SS18 show.
While some fashionistas seem determined to reinvent the image of Crocs, I’m not convinced it can be done. That being said, popper pants are back in fashion, so who knows?
