Leave it to Crocs, the pioneer of the modern clog, to bring forth many of the footwear industry’s most unique collaborations each year. In 2023, the brand’s collaborative catalog expanded with projects ranging from viral-oriented designs from MSCHF and the Shrek franchise to fashion-forward looks from the likes of ROA and Satisfy. Diving into the new year, Crocs has already booted up its collaboration machine with Hello Kitty, and is now following it up with two Naruto-themed looks.
The beloved manga and anime series was paid homage to with a special pair of the ASICS GEL-NYC earlier this month, and now looks to the Crocs Classic Clog for two additional designs. For its first colorway, Naruto Uzumaki serves as inspiration with orange and black covering the Clog as his iconic headband adorns the upper alongside thematic Jibbitz. Kakashi Hatake receives a similar treatment with his pair as it takes on a green and blue that nods to his classic attire. Again, the headband motif arrives at the upper while Jibbitz hit the toe and a special detachable pouch appears at the puffy strap.
At the time of writing, Crocs has not officially announced its Naruto-themed Classic Clogs. Release information remains unknown, however, it’s likely to arrive soon via Crocs. Stay tuned for updates as we await confirmation from the slip-on specialists.
