Designer Platform Crocs Made Their Debut At Paris Fashion Week And We’re Horrified!

Who knows if this crazy fad will take off? I remember someone tried to make platform thongs a thing but that lasted for a hot second before being they were relegated to the bargain bins at most department stores.
What do you think? Is the platform croc something you’d rock?
