Balenciaga's $850 platform Crocs sell out within hours of online debut
Crocs — the unisex, foam staple favored by grandmothers around the globe — are officially the hottest shoe of the season.
Last fall, Balenciaga debuted platform Crocs on its runway. The rubber clogs, which retail for $850, finally became available for preorder on Barney’s website last week — and they sold out within hours.

This isn’t the first time fashion has flirted with the rubber clogs. Designer Christopher Kane showcased rock-emblazoned Crocs at his spring-summer 2017 show.
Based on how quickly the latest version sold out, Balenciaga’s version seems to have sealed the deal for fashion lovers.
