When shopping for the best summer shoes, comfort should be one of the most important factors. Style and comfort don’t always go hand in hand, but if you find the best of both worlds, you’ve pretty much hit the footwear jackpot. Got a taste for luxury? Balenciaga’s Pool Crocs debuted in March and retail for $565. The Crocs are available in a range of colors including white, black, pink, green, lavender, floral, tan and the yellow colorway worn by Cardi B during a recent outing.

The rubber, open-toe slide sandal features a Balenciaga logo across the top of the foot, along with a one-on-tone sole and insole, and a 5mm arch. Balenciaga Pool Crocs are available in women’s and men’s sizes.

For those of you who may not have hundreds of dollars to spend on summer footwear, regular Crocs will suit you just fine. The popular comfort clog has found a sweet spot among consumers and celebs alike namely for being comfortable, durable, stylish and, in most cases, affordable.

Justin Bieber, Luke Combs, Karol G, Post Malone, SZA, and Kiss are some of the other recording artists who have collaborated with Crocs in the past, and Nicki Minaj sparked a Crocs frenzy last summer.

To make things easier, we put together a list of Crocs to rock this summer. From the Classic Clog to Crocs Slides, see more below.
