The denim clog is not a combination of words that would inspire fashion confidence ordinarily but Levi’s has taken up that challenge with the release of their Crocs capsule. Levi’s has celebrated 150 years of the 501 jeans in 2023 and as part of that celebration they’ve partnered with Crocs for a unique take on collaboration. The two brands have come together to merge casual comfort and quality design in their all-new Levi’s x Crocs capsule collection.
The first two offerings from the collection feature an elevated take on Crocs’ All-Terrain Clog. Each pair has been updated with a denim wrapped panel, completed with Sashiko stitching – a traditional Japanese embroidery technique. Just like every pair of Levi’s jeans, a Red Tab can be found on the wearer’s right shoe along with Levi’s button shanks on the heel strap. Additionally, a Japanese Two-Horse pull logo can be found on the footbed. Each pair also comes with three premium metal Jibbitz charms, custom made for the collaboration. Available in both Navy and Bone colorways, the clogs utilize adjustable turbo heel straps and rugged lug outsoles with enhanced tread for increased traction and support.
The third offering from the Levi’s x Crocs capsule collection features a tie-dye print Classic Clog inspired by the Japanese technique of Shibori dyeing. Among the shoe’s special features are Levi’s button shank hinge hardware, red outsoles, and a Two Horse-Pull heel stamp on the footbed. Emphasizing self-expression, the Classic Clog comes with eight custom Levi’s Jibbitz charms inspired by 60s counterculture and archival Levi’s graphics.
The Levi’s x Crocs collaboration launches on September 29th, 2023 in the Levi’s V&A Waterfront store and on levi.co.za, and will be available for purchase in the Levi’s Sandton pop-up store on September 30th, 2023.
