Over the years Crocs and the fashion world have had an interesting love-hate relationship. One minute they’re being mocked as ugly, yet undeniably comfortable footwear, and the next they’re spotted on runways with the likes of Balenciaga and Christopher Kane.

For summer 2019, the latest industry insider to attempt a fashionable Crocs rebrand is none other than Barneys New York with their collection of edgy designs for women and men.

The collab combines a punk-rock aesthetic with Crocs’ signature contoured footbed and Croslite material for comfort and support. Each pair boasts a New York-inspired design that displays iconic NYC elements for an edgy take on the polarizing footwear.

You can take a look at the entire Barneys New York x Crocs collection below, and let us know your thoughts on the latest high-end take on the controversial footwear in the comments.
