in october balenciaga unveiled their collaboration with crocs on the runways of paris and obviously they sparked off quite the debate between lovers, loathers and well we guess – laughers. well the pair are having the last laugh now as several months on and the balenciaga platform crocs are officially available for pre-order but guess what…they’ve sold out.

balenciaga’s designer demna gvasalia states: ’it’s light, and in the future you will be able to 3D print them at home because they are all one piece – we are using a one-piece foam mould, and working with these kind of materials is very balenciaga!

the platform crocs come in two colours, pink and toast, and are available via barneys new york. the foam shoes allow wearers to customise options using a form of pins that can be attached to the shoe’s famed perforations. to secure yourself a pair you will need $850 and to maybe set a google alert to let you know when they’re back in stock.
