Get a psychedelic experience (or look) in a totally legal way that you least expect: Crocs. American DJ Diplo is next in the star studded Crocs collab lineup. This collaboration presents the Classic Clog and the Classic Sandal in rainbow swirly patterns and glow-in-the-dark mushroom Jibbitz, sounds like these shoes are going to be a hell of a trippy ride.

The Classic Clog comes with a blue base, with bright shades of pink, orange, and yellow in a splattered design on it. An alternative colorway with a pink base also seems to be available. Diplo’s Brontosaurus logo is branded on the heel strap’s swivel point.

The Classic Sandals features a double foam strap with a yellow base, accented by orange, blue, and pink swirled print. It is the first artist sandal collaboration so far.

A nod to Diplo’s love for psychedelic magic mushrooms, the shoes are packaged with eight Jibbitz that glow in the dark, making it lit (pun intended) for parties. The designs include Diplo text graphics, a flat 2-D mushroom, a manatee wearing headphones, and more. The huge multicolored 3-D mushroom Jibbitzs however are definitely the highlight for these sandals, and it might just be Crocs’ wildest collaborative effort yet.

“I wear my Crocs literally everywhere so I’m stoked to have some with my name on them and that others can get them too. Crocs helped me bring my adventures to life with these designs and the 3-D, light up and glow-in-the-dark mushroom Jibbitz charms are cooler than I could’ve imagined. Now fans can take a walk with me in either the Classic Clog or Classic Sandal.”

The Diplo x Crocs Classic Clog and Classic Sandal were released on June 8, and are now sold out. They hold a retail price of $70 USD for the former and $50 USD for the latter. During the release, Diplo held a Twitch stream where he played a set inspired by the collaboration and gave 1,000 pairs away to some lucky winners. Honestly for Crocs, these aren't too bad.
