Crocs(NEW YORK) — Love it or hate it, ugly fashion is making serious strides and if the high-heeled Crocs that went viral and sold out is any indication, then the trend could be making moves towards becoming a staple.
This is not a crock — well not in the joking sense of the word. Casual, comfort-centric shoe company Crocs debuted its newest high heels and the strappy shoe already sold out.
Social media users freaked out when photos the 3.75-inch foam wedge heel went viral on Twitter and subsequently sold out.
The Women’s Cyprus V heel was originally listed for $44 on the Crocs website before going on final sale for $17.99, but the shoe is no longer available.
Crocs also make a variety of other heel styles including wedges, block heels and slingbacks. The footwear company did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
The ugly fashion trend has put its best foot forward and high-end designers are embracing the moment and leaning in with riffs of their own.
Balenciaga paid homage in the past with their own Croc-inspired designs like platform clogs that debuted last October at Balenciaga’s spring 2018 Paris Fashion Week show. And now the luxury fashion house teased pictures on Instagram of a hot pink pair of stilettos with a familiar look.
The high heels made to look like a pair of the comfort clogs have holes adorned with various charms from a pink macaron, a cat and shooting star.
It is not clear whether the item was directly inspired by the sustainable shoe company, but it sure bears a striking resemblance.
Balenciaga did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.
