Make fun of them all you want, but Crocs and Post Malone’s latest collaboration sold out in under two hours Tuesday morning.
This is the fourth design to emerge from the unlikely pair, with the previous three selling out in minutes, Crocs said in a release.
Post Malone’s blend of country, grunge and hip-hop bleeds into his personal style, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see the eclectic performer teaming up with the divisive shoe brand.
“This next chapter in the Post Malone x Crocs partnership delivers a true creation from Post as he evolves his own aesthetic, and is eagerly anticipated by fans worldwide,” the company said in a release.
In anticipation of the release date, Post Malone held an exclusive pre-drop event at a Texas branch of the fast food chain, Chicken Express, where he worked his first and only job before becoming a globally recognized performer.
The perfect pair
Post Malone may ooze careless rock star vibes, but his style choices appear well thought out. He regularly mixes high fashion with comfort, making him a natural choice of partner for Crocs, a brand that has enjoyed a revival — especially among teens — in recent years.

Crocs calls itself the “world leader in innovative casual footwear,” and is hardly a celebrity staple. But Posty’s ability to elevate what some deem to be lowbrow, like plastic beer cups and cowboy hats, into high fashion makes this odd couple an ideal pair.
