Salehe Bembury x CROCS
The famous footwear designer of the year 2020, Salehe BEMBURY, has been teasing his upcoming collaboration with the clogs brand CROCS for a few weeks now. Yesterday, the Versace former offered a more detailed look at the collaborative project on his Instagram account.
Mixing materials, textures, colors and prints, Salehe BEMBURY is known for his bold creations with eye-catching designs. His collabs with Anta, Vans and especially New Balance have received a very warm welcome from sneakerheads. Salehe is one of the most popular footwear designers today.
Unlike other collaborators such as Palace or the rapper Bad Bunny who have kept the original shape of the CROCS Classic Clog, Salehe BEMBURY has reworked it to give it an exclusive and unique look. Playing with textures and details, the founder of the fashion brand SPUNGE drew inspiration from his signature fingerprint pattern for the design of this pair. The white foam clog feels like it’s covered in this signature pattern in an oversized version. Oval-shaped cutouts are revealed on the forefoot to promote breathability. A touch of black contrast is provided by the heel strap, the back of the foot, the outsole and a semi-translucent part on the left side of the toe box. The co-branding is embossed and toned on the high white part of the back of the heel. As always with the talented designer, it’s all in the detail !
For the moment, the New York designer has not specified the terms of release of this new collab. However, the Salehe Bembury x CROCS should be released soon. We are watching the personal account of the designer as well as the social networks of his label SPUNGE… Stay tuned !
