Diplo is the latest celebrity to join forces with Crocs for a new collaboration, describing the venture as bringing his “adventures to life”.
The DJ and producer – real name Thomas Pentz – said of the collection: “I wear my Crocs literally everywhere so I’m stoked to have some with my name on them and that others can get them too.”
“Crocs helped me bring my adventures to life with these designs and the 3D, light up and glow-in-the-dark mushroom Jibbitz charms are cooler than I could’ve imagined. Now, fans can take a walk with me in either the Classic Clog or Crocs Classic Sandal.”
In celebration of the wacky collab, Diplo revealed he’ll be showcasing the trippy kicks during a performance that will be streamed on Mad Decent’s Twitch channel on Thursday night, where he’ll hold a giveaway for 1000 pairs of the shoes.
Heidi Cooley, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Crocs, spoke of the new range with Diplo, saying: “Our collaborations are more than a moment in time. At Crocs, we’re focused on creating engaging experiences that bring fans along for the journey.
“Working with a genuine brand fan in Diplo inspired a new level of creativity, including the first-ever celebrity take on the Classic Crocs Sandal with glowing Jibbitz charms that will help fans stand out even in the dark.”
The footwear will be priced at $69.99 for the Classic Clog style, while the Classic Sandal will cost $49.99, with both available to buy online from June 8.
