Since it's such a fiercely expressive and creative environment, designers, stylists, models, and everyone involved can express themselves in any way that seems fit.

But it is still very subjective and sometimes a design or style just won't suit everyone's, or even anyone's, taste.

However, you also get the trends that explosively - and sometime inexplicably - take off, and before you realise it, your life has also been infused with scrunchies, chain necklaces and bucket hats.

Remember when we all reached that point in the lockdown where we tried to make dresses out of pillows? The height of 2020 fashion if you ask us.

Over the years there have been some trends that we look back on and the only question that comes to mind is, "Why?!"

But, their latest collab is the most questionable to date.

Crocs previously released a collaboration with fashion house Balenciaga, which saw the birth of the unnecessarily high platform shoes and the shoes were hugely popular so it's no surprise that the two brands decided to collaborate once again.

Balenciaga debuted their new collab during their Spring 22 runway show and the only thing that really caught everyone's attention was the Crocs stiletto.

The shoes are not on sale just yet, but CNN has reported that the shoes could have a hefty price tag of $1,000 which is an estimated R13,783.

Back to the Balenciaga situation. 

Are we just incredibly fashionable? Yes. But maybe there is something about this shoe we are just not getting and that's okay. 

Not everyone has to like everything and if you think these Balenciaga x Crocs Stilettos are hot, then by all means you do you, boo!
