The platform sandal features a timeless Croc silhouette made with a gigantic wide sole, drawn on an all-black base. Although the pair lacks the signature Croc holes on the top, the Balenciaga detailing makes them a classic.

Each set of HardCrocs sandals is priced at US$950. Those looking to get their hands on the pair can pre-order the sold-out sandals through the luxury brand’s official online store. The shoes should also arrive in stores soon.
Designed by creative director Demna Gvasalia, the silhouette has a rugged and muscular appearance. The high aesthetics of the mules makes it all the more appealing.
The black rubber pair is constructed with a 110mm platform which is complemented by a 10mm arch. Each piece is adorned with silver studs in the shape of bolts. Some of these studs are accessorized with the brand’s BB logo affixed to the sole.
A sturdy, chunky outsole is secured with a metal patch and stamped with the luxury house’s monogram, which also reads, “Designed in collaboration with Crocs”
All in all, the HardCrocs sandal can be considered one of the most beloved pairs of shoes the brand has ever made.
