Crocs' New Collab With Streetwear Brand Beams Is Peak Dad Fashion

Via @beams_official on Instagram

Styles include visors and fanny packs

Crocs has teamed up with streetwear brand Beams to release a collection that will have all the hypebeasts shaking. On top of the traditional rubber clog, the brands have added translucent visors, fringe, and fanny packs. Yes, literal fanny packs now adorn the ankle strap and are ready to hold your smallest personal belongings and become the envy of all who glance at your footwear.

Are we living in a Crocs Renaissance? Depends who you ask. The fanny pack Crocs are almost too good to be true for the current lazy trends in street wear—Dad-core inception, if you will. The style even comes in color ways akin to your favorite '80s windbreaker—turquoise with purple accents and vice versa—and also feature little sparkly gem charms plugged into the holes. If subtlety is more your style, I definitely wouldn't recommend these bad boys, and rather the visor options which come in black or white.

Other styles seem to have gone to the Coachella of yesteryear, with long beaded fringe hanging from the ankle strap, which cover up a little lace-up accent. Like moccasins, but also not moccasins.

For those who don't partake in the dad-core scene, the collection includes two more feminine styles, including a sparkly sandal in pink or silver, and a set of bejeweled platformed Crocs in black or white. Despite my better judgement, I have already added both pairs to my cart on Beams' site and am one reckless click away from making this my signature summer shoe.

Per an Instagram announcement from Beams, the collection goes live this Friday, April 19. Check out the styles currently available for pre-order here, and peep a look at the collection below.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
