In a world where everyone is embracing comfort as a large part of the population works from home amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Balenciaga came up with the idea of adding a six-inch heel to its clogs.

Balenciaga showed its Spring 2022 collection this week, featuring an array of “conceptual interpretations” of Gucci accessories, according to the show notes. There was also a second instalment of Balenciaga’s collaboration with popular clog brand Crocs. Titled “Balenciaga Crocs 2.0,” the partnership features heels and lug-soled rain boot in all black, grey and lime green hues.

Although the there has yet to be official release info for the Balenciaga-Crocs, it surely has captured the attention of people online. Many sharing the images and commenting on social media argued that the new feature defeats the purpose. It has prompted many jokes and memes online, with netizens guessing who would be wearing it.

And if the design itself wasn’t enough to tick off people online, it comes at a hefty price. Yes, according to CNN, the high-heeled Crocs may be sold for as much as $1,000, which would cost a little over Rs 73000 in Indian currency.
