Rock Out with Your Crocs Out - 10 Times Plus Size Babes Made Crocs Cool as Hell
Nearly 20 years after their 2002 debut, Crocs remain one of the divisive things you put on your feet. These comfy clogs first started out as a boating shoe that even the company’s founders thought were ugly at first. Comfort won over looks and Crocs quickly grew in popularity among professions that require long hours on your feet such as nurses and chefs. But how did this highly functional shoe become a Gen Z and now sneakerhead staple?
Made from a foam material called Croslite, the brand quickly expanded its product offerings to include wedges, trainers, flip flops and more. In 2006, they acquired Jibbitz - the snap on accessories that allow wearers to really personalize their Crocs. Along the way, Crocs became a staple for folks that DGAF what people think about their style or their footwear.
You can find certain Crocs on sneaker resell sites with bids as high as $800+. Celebrity collaborations include Ruby Rose, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, and Justin Bieber. Don’t forget about the coveted KFC x Crocs collab featuring two fried chicken scented Jibbitz. And of course, hypebeasts ate it up.
So where does this leave curvy babes? If it’s stylish, trendy and happening in sneaker culture, you can bet that plus size babes are already hip to it. That’s why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite looks where plus size babes made crocs cool as hell.

It's safe to say that Sway has swag in excess. Just look at the heat she brought to the already smokin' Ocean Drive when she paired a white bikini with cheetah print Crocs.
