Nobody knows if Crocs would have seen such a drastic spike in popularity had it not been for the COVID-19 pandemic, but here we are. And there’s no doubt that the clog connoisseurs have cashed in on this trend as it has aligned with culture-shifting partners from Justin Bieber to Bad Bunny to Salehe Bembury, the latest of which has yet to release. And now, its collaborative portfolio is slated to grow with LA-based brand Free & Easy for a joint footwear collection — one that channels the laid-back lifestyle of Southern California.
The range includes two silhouettes: the Classic Clog and the Slides. The exterior of both offerings are dressed to mimic that of California sunset as each is treated with a vivid gradient of orange, yellow and blue. The ultra-plushy in-steps of each take contrasts with a pure white hue. To further echo its beach-friendly motif, Free & Easy packages the products with playful Jibbitz. A “Don’t Trip” Jibbit is included as this is the brand’s motto alongside a rainbow, sunglasses, dice, planet Earth and wave.
In case you missed it, Crocs recently partnered up with thisisneverthat for a collaborative footwear launch.
