Fashion has really taken a dramatic turn these days, with many companies opting for riskier pieces to grab people's attention. And let me tell you, it's working. The latest fashion trend to have us questioning our lives is none other than the Croc Heel. Yeah. The Croc Heel.
And it looks as bad as it sounds...
2020 just keeps on giving...If it's not a deadly disease or questionable food items, it's absurd footwear.
Now we've been ravaged by ugly shoes before...And we're still not quite over it.
It all started with Gucci releasing these bad boys...
via: GucciThe women's leather and mesh sandals.
For some reason, they combined 2 materials that don't belong together unless you're into that...
via: GucciAnd then they decided to splash a bit of pastel pink and lilac on them and call them women's shoes. And don't even get me started on that chunky heel. It's footwear fit for a 90s Barbie Doll trying out the "explorer" look.
Of course, there's a men's version available too.
via: FarfetchThe intention is clear: Just change the colors to "manly" colors and hope for the best. Oh, Gucci.
And they didn't call it a day after that creation because then we got whiff of this:
via: FarfetchThe Flashtrek sneakers with removable crystals. Thank God they're removable.
And for a whopping $1415, that's the least they could do.
via: FarfetchBut I don't think we'll be investing in these any time soon.
And it seems as though other designer companies also followed suit on the weird footwear.
via: BalmainLook at how Balmain decided to come through.
These are known as the "Grey high-top suede and mesh BBold sneakers with strap."
via: BalmainAs if someone decided this was okay. It is not.
And don't even get me started on this abomination released by Philipp Plein.
via: FarfetchNow Philipp Plein is known for his more outlandish style, with a lot of his creations working with a bit of sparkle, but this is something else altogether.
If you thought the Gucci sneakers were going to set you back, get a load of this...
via: FarfetchThese hellish babies have been slapped with a $12,747 price tag.
But what we didn't expect to see was crocs taking the lead.
But it's something about the weird shaped holes at the front that make me uncomfortable.
But over the years, the company has developed some pretty grotesque pieces.
Just take a look at these ugly shoes:
And these aren't much better:
But the latest release to get the internet talking is the Croc Heel.
via: BalenciagaNow, we've seen platform crocs before, you know those chunky, neon pink slip-ons? I always presumed they would be part of the uniform for those of us entering the gates of hell, but now, I have a feeling it will be the Croc Heel.
