You Can Now Cop a Pair of Wu-Tang Clan Crocs

Available on the Crocs app, Wu-Tang Clan has partnered with Crocs for a new collection featuring slides, classic clogs and “Jibbitz” charms.

Crocs rule everything around us.

Wu-Tang Clan is taking Shaolin style to another level. On Thursday (June 9), Crocs promoted early access to the app-only exclusive partnership on social media. The new collection features a special-designed classic black clog, a classic yellow slide, a five pack of “Jibbitz” charms and a classic yellow clog in kids sizes.

Emblazoned with the Wu-Tang logo, the Crocs collaboration is another feather in Wu-Tang’s hat. The group last partnered with Fortnite, jumping into the gaming world with their throwback Wu Wear line with skins ‘Throwback BG’ and ‘B.R.I.T.E,’ accessories including a Wu Boom Box spray and reactive backpack, Wu-Tang hands emote and an all-new loading screen.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their sophomore album Wu-Tang Forever, last month, the group dropped a new collection to celebrate their 1997 album with a limited-edition reissue including a lyric booklet, a silver-colored 7-inch single of “Triumph” with “Heaterz” a double cassette and more.

Earlier this year, Wu-Tang’s 1993 debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) was inducted into the Library of Congress along with The Low End Theory from A Tribe Called Quest and Songs In A Minor by Alicia Keys.

“Across the record, samples from dozens of pulp kung-fu movies lend imagery of a secret knowledge and a warrior’s honor — and blend with the wordplay of the Clan’s MC to develop an evocative mythology,” The Library of Congress explained.

In August, Wu-Tang will hit the road with Nas for the ‘NY State of Mind’ Tour. Tickets are available now.
