The Best Indie Designer Charms To Make Your Favorite Crocs Stand Out

It’s never been more crucial to swag out your Crocs.

Few things have sparked such a divisive discourse as renaissance of Crocs. In 2020 alone, celebrities like Justin Bieber, Bad Bunny, and Post Malone all dropped collabs with the “ugly shoe” brand, all of which sold out in a flash. The brand boasted a 12-percent growth during the year, with a record $1.38 billion in sales, and anticipates that to surge up to 20 to 25 percent in 2021.

High-fashion brands have already been way ahead of the trend, with Balenciaga’s platforms and Christopher Kane’s gem-studded, tie-dye version. In October 2020, Hèrmes sent models down the runway in a clog eerily similar to the affordable shoes, too.

Suffice it to say, Crocs are back. So now more than ever, it’s vital to find a way to make the über-popular clogs stand out among the rest. Yes, there are Jibbitz, the trademarked charms sold by Crocs, but for something more personalized, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Jewelry brands like Blackcurrant Pop and Ellie Vail sell their own handcrafted Crocs charms, while independent creators like Bliss Beauty Boutique and Mackenzie Rae Creations offer customizable pieces you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

Below, take a look at the best places to find the best charms to personalize your Crocs. But be warned: You may need more than one pair to fit all of them.
