Oh Pollex! Another Salehe Croc Is En Route

Salehe Bembury’s Crocs Pollex Clog is about as wavy as they come. Part Cornish pasty, part sandal, part hallucination, the Pollex is a silhouette that takes an already mad-looking shoe in the classic Croc Clog, but makes it ten times madder.

Derived from any Jibbitz, the silhouette’s trippy build more than makes up for a lack of accessories, while an archetypal perforated upper means adios to sweaty feet, too.

Following the Pollex Clog’s initial launch mid-way through last year, which saw it arrive in a simple OG colorway of black and white, Bembury and Crocs have since dropped a barrage of takes including “Urchin” blue, “Crocodile” green, and my personal favorite, “Kuwata”.

Now though, as we enter yet another UK heatwave and I seek yet another pair of summer-ready shoes to help me through it, Bembury and Crocs have revealed their latest Pollex Clog, which is set to drop online on August 18.

Dipped in an all-over Solero-like hue, this latest take – which is titled “Cobbler” – features contrasting orange tones on the toe and heel strap, with air holes across the upper for good measure.

For Bembury, it’s been a pretty busy month for collaborations, after the designer revealed his footwear drop alongside Vault by Vans for a link-up he described as “the organic beginning of something special.”

Not long ago too, Bembury took to Instagram to reveal a pink and purple iteration of New Balance’s famed 990v2 silhouette, which is yet to have been given an official release date.

Despite his myriad of collaborations, his work over the past 12 months with Crocs has arguably been his best yet and while his work with NB might generate the most hype, his Pollex Clogs undoubtedly generate the most comfort, which is really what’s most important.
