Crocs are fashion’s most controversial footwear style (though summer’s flip-flop heels are hot on its toes). Those rubber shoes, usually meant for gardening, got a luxurious spin in 2017 when Christopher Kane came out with a gem-studded version . Last year, Balenciaga went a step further with a heeled Croc—you know, in case you want to plant some Black Eyed Susans on your way to the club. It wasn’t long before the footwear started making regular cameos on the runway and in street style photographs, turning the once-horrifying clog into a surprising It shoe.
Late to the party, Ariana Grande still wants in. The singer posted an outfit on Instagram today that featured a pair of pristine white Crocs — hers not a high-fashion version but the OG ones. She wore them with white socks for a true comfort appeal and styled them in that signature Ariana way: with an oversized hoodie and no pants. Still, a chic little cross-body bag helped elevate the ensemble and give it some much-needed polish.
