Happy National Crocs Day - Here Are Some of the Label's Most Memorable Collabs

From Balenciaga to Post Malone, here are the best Crocs on the market.

Today is not a regular day, today is October 23 which is now known as National Crocs Day. The rubber shoe has become a polarizing piece in fashion, being viewed as an ugly shoe and one that would never be worn by the fashion elite – until the footwear label started releasing unexpected collaborations.

We’ve seen Christopher Kane create a handful of luxury interpretations of the shoe, as well as labels like Pleasures and Chinatown Market, stores like Barneys and celebrities like Post Malone. To celebrate the iconic shoe, we’ve rounded up all our favorite Crocs collaborations below. Keep reading to see our picks, and let us know your favorite in the comments below.
