Who knew Crocs were in such high demand in 2018? When it was announced that Post Malone was collaborating with the often-clowned footwear brand, many thought the link-up made a lot of sense. After all, Post Malone has kind of made an entire career out of looking like his style has been an afterthought. At $59.99, the shoes were definitely more affordable than Kanye West’s Yeezys or any other rapper collab sneaker. However, you had to be interested in trading style for comfort. It turns out that a large number of folks are down with the Crocs movement because Posty’s model sold out in just under ten minutes.
Imagine a pair of Crocs selling out… We knew these were limited edition but Post’s brand is at an all-time high when people are huddling around at the Crocs store for a new clog. The artist posted on his Instagram that more styles would be on the way. Anybody that wasn’t feeling the design of the first one will get a second chance in the future. He will likely return with even more custom “Jibbitz” than he did the first time too.
Post Malone issued a statement on his collaboration to Hypebeast, saying, “If you like something, go get it. I wear Crocs everywhere from the bar to the stage and I felt it was the perfect collaboration to get together with Crocs and give the fans what they’ve been asking for.” Maybe the next one will be a wider release.
