It’s not that difficult to be trendy in 2019, you just have to have some budget, a $300 budget, to be exact, for a bag that looks like a croc shoe. Now let’s analyze that deeper.
Whether you like croc shoes or not, you are seeing them everywhere and they are expanding their market reach, no doubt about that. Crocs continue to take over the world with their spokesperson Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones in the lead and designers Christopher Kane and Demna Gvasalia of Balenciaga behind glamorous transformations.
We all can still remember the charm-decorated insanely high platform crocs from Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2018 runway. Even $850 tag didn’t stop them from getting sold out before coming to stores, proving that people love their crocs whatever way they come.
The brand is not just reinventing the shoe this time, they are taking it a step further and venturing into handbag market, so now you can put your wallet and keys into a croc. This step comes as collaboration, and if history proves anything, collaborations worked great before.
The bags are sold by Optari and inspired by crocs, which is a combination that has to be seen to be believed – it looks like a croc of a giant was molded into a bag. One thing is for certain – you will garner attention wherever you take it to.
The Optari Sole Totes come in a few colors and two sizes (small and large) and cost $19.99 and $24.99. The bags are marketed as beach bags, shower caddies, shopping bags, garden totes, and gift bags. Besides all those uses, you can use your imagination and come up with even more ways to love it.

The Optari version is not the first time croc shoes were turned into more than shoes. Pizzaslime of LA has already made crocs crossbody bag before. The zipper was installed in the place of footbed and the whole creation decorated with kitsch charms and a body strap. As we said above, this masterpiece is a cool $300. It was also a limited edition, came in yellow or black, and was sold out right away.
The conclusion here is that whatever feelings you have about crocs and their popularity, if you want to be fashionable and invest your money wisely, load up on those bags when you can and watch people compete for what’s left while you are in peace knowing you already have the season’s hottest fashion “it” item.
