Shoppers have mocked ASOS for selling a pair of studded Crocs with some labelling it “2020 in a shoe”.
The black shoes, which is exclusive to the online retailer at £64.99, is described as the “Bae punk clog in black”.
Although the footwear features the usual Croc design with its comfy beaded insoles, a hole-covered exterior and chunky soles, its punk makeover is certainly eye-catching.
Depsite the fact that the Crocs appear to be selling well – they’re sold out in four sizes – many people have ridiculed the site for selling the unique shoe, including Instagram account @asbos_sos page, which often pokes fun at the online store’s garments, reports Daily Star.
The account shared a snap of the shoes with its 37,900 followers writing: “If 2020 was a shoe,” – and many agreed it could only be a product of such a horrible year.
Since being posted it has received over 800 likes and dozens of amusing comments.
One responder wrote: “Noooo” and another asked: “Surely that shoe isn’t actually for sale?!”
Despite the criticism, a few people admitted that they actually really liked the unique shoes and were keen to buy a pair.
One person confessed: “Honestly I kinda want them.”
Another asked: “But why do I want it?”
A third joked: “I’d Croc(k) it!”
And a verified purchaser who was unsure on the shoes was surprised when she fell in love with them.
She wrote: “I bought these because I thought they were hilarious and I had seen high fashion collabs for ‘punk Crocs’ that ran thousands of dollars at Barney’s.
“Jokes on me because when I wore these out the first time everyone loved them. Plus they were comfy.”
