Crocs and its official collaborators have been thinking outside the box lately with new introductions such as tote bags and stilettos with Balenciaga to belt-bag clogs with MCM. However, never has the label seen the unlikely combination of Crocs cleats, until now.

Ahead of training camp, Arizona Cardinals cornerback Byron Murphy Junior reached out to visual artist Sean Vergara for custom footwear ideas. Vergara had already thought of the Crocs cleat ideas before their conversation, and with murphy being a self-proclaimed “Crocs guy,” the concept was realized.

“Anytime I get a chance to go beyond just painting, it’s always fun, and that’s always some of my favorite ones,” commented Vergara.

The pairs were made using Murphy’s Nike cleats which Vergara dyed Cardinal yellow. Vergara then went to Dick’s Sporting Goods in search of a strap to make the pairs as similar as possible and ended up finding that a toddler-sized croc fit the design the best. He then measured out and replicated the hole size of a real pair of Crocs onto the cleats. The entire process reportedly took over 20 hours to make.

“They’re on fire,” Murphy said per ESPN. “I posted them on my Instagram. They kinda blew up. I gotta get more colors though. That’s what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna get some more colors though because the yellow ones are kind of bright, so I don’t know if I can wear those on game day and not get fined.”
