Nigerian fashion influencer and businesswoman, Laura Ikeji, recently got social media users buzzing with mixed reactions after she revealed the next thing she intended to spoil herself with as a mother.
For the longest time, crocs were considered hideous and pointless but all of that appeared to have changed following the pandemic as the crayon-coloured shoes have since turned into a hip, even glamorous, statement.
Well, it appears designer brands have taken things up a notch. What was once mainly for comfort has now been converted into something more fashion conscious.
Just recently, Ikeji shared a photo of black heeled crocs designed by high-end brand, Balenciaga.
Described as 'x crocs 110 pumps', the shoes cost N237k (€510).

Lisa Folawiyo in 'telephone wire' designer shoes
Unlike several other Nigerian designers who often take the back seat and let their customers take the shine in their designs, Lisa Folawiyo is not afraid to slay in the spotlight.
The top Nigerian designer and brains behind Jewel by Lisa stays topping the trend lists - just like the fashionistas who patronize her.
Just recently, Lisa shared photos of herself in one of the designs from her SS22 collection. To accessorize her look, she rocked a pair of designer shoes.
