Demi Sims shows off ‘silly’ £1300 sandals and fans are divided


by Angelica Daujotas |

Chunky shoes are everywhere nowadays- chunky boots, chunky trainers, chunky heels. But one shoe that certainly wasn't on our radar was chunky Crocs.

In a recent Instagram post, Demi Sims is seen posing in a pair of ridiculously-high black Crocs. And not only that, but they retail at a whopping £1300. Why not, eh?

Demi received an array of mixed responses to her shoes, with one person even commenting, "Don't trip in those bricks'. Ouch. Another added, "Sorry the Crocs are not nice, only my opinion though!"

However, not all the feedback on her big ol' Crocs was negative, with one fan saying, "Now THAT is what you call a pair of Crocs."

But if you're looking to recreate Demi's platform Croc look, they'll set you back a good £1300 as naturally, they are from Balenciaga. Who'd have thought crocs were so expensive?

This isn't the first time Crocs have gone wild this year, after the first episode of Love Island aired earlier this year, Ikenna turned heads as he waltzed into the villa wearing pair of bright blue swimming trunks and black Crocs, embellished with charms.


The islander's look did not go unnoticed, as the New Look team observed a 150% search increase for black Crocs, as well as a 500% search increase for Croc charms after the episode aired.

A few days before the new season, Laura Whitmore was also spotted wearing a pair of bright yellow crocs on her Instagram, with her initials embellished on each one - iconique, if you ask us.

So, if you're interested in shopping Crocs, or Croc charms, shop our top picks below.
