It was not so long ago that Crocs were the most mockable shoes, but as the tide turns, they’ve become a commonplace staple that aren’t going away anytime soon. While they’re not the most stylish, the fact that they’re so comfortable make them some of the most popular shoes in the world. With the rise in plant ownership, it was only a matter of time when these two seemingly different worlds would collide, and the “plant Crocs” became a thing.
If you think that this means Crocs with a plant pattern, then you’ll be surprised. These Crocs are fully inspired by Monstera plants and have been making the rounds on Twitter.
One Twitter user shared: “Plant crocs are a thing” along with a photo of the plant inspired shoe, which comes in a variety of shades of the color green. The shoes were designed by Unsent Studio, as described by @HobbyistPlant.
The company has officially dubbed these the Monstera Mule and were inspired by the Monstera plants found in Costa Del Sol in Spain. The shoes garnered a huge amount of attention on Twitter, with the tweet amassing 15,000 retweets and more than 164,000 likes.
The amazing thing about these shoes is that even people who usually don’t like Crocs were actually into these. One Twitter user shared: “These are the only crocs I’ve found aesthetically pleasing in my life,” and another user pointed out: “They look like salad, I need them.”
If you can’t wait to get a pair of these on your feet, you might have to wait a little bit longer. Unsent Studio shared an official post on Instagram revealing that the company is still in the early stages of fine tuning the shoes, so they’re not quite ready yet.
The company shared: “Finally, the first Mock-up has arrived! We’re in the process of fixing blueprint and Mock-Up right now. The shape & volume are being refined, and we’re focusing on maximizing the organic atmosphere. There is still a long way to go. Who will be with us on this journey?”
Although these shoes have not even come out yet, we think it’s safe to say that just from the Twitter attention alone it looks like these will be quite popular when they will be released.
