Following joint efforts with the likes of Umbro and Riess ceramics, New York streetwear stalwart Alife returns to the spotlight with a trio of collaborative Crocs.

Perhaps one of the most surprising team-ups of the year, the brand’s founder and creative director, Rob Cristofaro, noted, “The clog is a fashion misfit, which is why I think our collaboration points out that doing something you love is more important than following the latest trends,” though he made it clear that this release actually predates the headline-grabbing Balenciaga Crocs: “… I must add that the clog style is trending now, more than a year after we began our project.”

The revised mules come in three iterations: Art, Sport and Classic. The Art model sports a selection of 3D-printed “Jibbitz,” Crocs accessories that can be wedged into the toe of the shoe, which reference iconic New York landmarks. On the flip side, the Sport silhouette boasts built-in tube socks, a blend of athleticism and comfort. Finally, the Classic style offers the classic Alife logo, seen on the brand’s first-ever T-shirt, and the classic Crocs silhouette, with Alife branding seen on the strap and around the toe.

Look for the elevated clogs to hit Alife’s website and Rivington Club outpost on June 14. For more unconventional footwear, check out Nike’s new fanny pack-bearing Benassi slides.
