As part of Croctober – a month-long celebration of all things Crocs – the opinion-dividing shoemaker has now launched a cowboy boot. Yes, you did read that correctly.
The buzz around these shoes has been building for years, and the release marks a real moment for fans of the brand who have been hoping for the far-fetched style. The sought-after pair is a testament to the brand’s commitment to and celebration of Croc Nation.
The wild sneaker will launch on Croc Day on October 23 and features a high-shine crocodile-embossed texture and bold western-inspired detailing. The boot is embellished with special metallic Jibbitz charms and a first-of-its-kind spinning spur charm attached to the shoe’s back strap. The rivet details feature the iconic black and white logo of Duke, the brand’s crocodile mascot, who gets in on the action by sporting a western-inspired hat.
The Croctober celebrations will continue to spotlight “Crocs-pirations’ from some of its most creative and boldest fans from around the world. The end of the month-long celebration will be marked with the unveiling of a “crocstellation” – a classic clog forever commemorating Croc Nation, which can be accessed across all Crocs platforms to access the exclusive AR filter.
In recent years, Crocs have surged back into the spotlight as the people’s crave for comfortable footwear has boomed. Aided by a slew of high-profile collaborations with brands such as JJJJound, Palace, Aries and Feng Chen Wang, Crocs are everywhere right now. The practical shoes have also attracted a wealth of high-profile fans, including David Hockney and Stormzy, only adding to the hype around the hybrid footwear.
The Crocs Cowboy Boots will drop on October 23 on the Crocs website and in select Crocs retail stores.
