No this is not a joke. Balenciaga recently debuted their Spring 2022 collection showing their second Croc x Balenciaga collaboration footwear line, Croc Balenciaga 2.0, that has heads turning. Featured in this collaboration are Croc stilettos and Croc knee-high rain boots.

Describing their Spring 2022 collection,Balenciaga says their new line reflects their “shifting sense of reality through the lens of technology.”
“We see our world through a filter—perfected, polished, conformed, photoshopped. We no longer decipher between unedited and altered, genuine and counterfeit, tangible and conceptual, fact and fiction, fake and deepface. Technology creates alternate realities and identities, a world of digital clones.”
With a definite price not yet announced, it is estimated they will sell for $1,000. This is definitely a new direction for crocs to try to take their brand.
“The second collaboration between the two brands, sees the classic clog made into pumps, boots, and platformed pool slides,” Balenciaga describing their collaboration with Croc.
The shoe itself looks just like a regular styled croc with the heel looking more than unsteady to be able to walk in.
Twitter had a field day with the design of this collaboration.

Croc and Balenciaga collabed back in 2018 with their $850 platform croc, selling out online almost immediately at Barneys before being sold exclusively in their stores.
