Even though crocs went out of style a long time back, these goth crocs with spikes and chains look absolutely badass.
In the world of fashion, we have seen a lot of trends come and go but crocs still remain somewhat of a mystery. Even though personally I am not a fan of them and they look like fashion suicide, even I cannot deny the fact that they are extremely comfortable to wear, despite looking hard and rubbery at the same time. Unknown to a lot of us, the goth crocs have gone through quite a rebranding in the last few years and in 2019, the world was introduced to Goth Crocs.
Yes, you read that right. The shoe comes studded with spikes and chains, which makes the boring looking crocs absolutely badass. Typically priced at $240, it is now available for $150 and sounds like a stellar deal. The pair is available to buy from the Etsy seller, going by the name of HeavyCreamStore and you can get them right here.
In an interview with The Insider, the seller says, "Goth Crocs is like 'what are two things that really don't feel like they should go together? I was pushing just how far you can take goth and the new emo trend." The product description reads, "Punk spike crocs to make your feet into the final form rare Pokémon they were meant to be. (PATENT PENDING). Hand made with now over 150 goth croc pairs of experience by @garbage_b0y (instagram) and sold through HEAVY CREAM. The spikes are nickel plated and the chain is high sheen stainless steel, everything is permanently affixed, nothing is falling off. Unisex, if you're unsure about size add it as a note to seller."
The modified shoes, which are made by Instagrammers @garbage_b0y and @lhommeboy, come with nickel-plated spikes and stainless steel. There is even an option to buy an additional add-on in the form of a long chain which you can attach to your trouser along with your shoes, in order to amp up the goth look. Fans were quick to share their opinions on Twitter and it became clear people were quite fascinated with these shoes.
One person wrote, "Don’t care about backlash right now but… I’d totally wear the f–k out of those ‘goth’ crocs." Another one added, "I hate myself for admitting this but Goth Crocs are kind of iconic idc idc." A third one quipped, saying, "Beto standing on a table naked except for goth crocs." A fourth user proclaimed, "The goth crocs stay on during sex."
