Aries partners with Crocs to present an exclusive capsule collection

FOR THE first time, a unique collaboration between Aries and Crocs brings to life two new iterations of the Crocs Hiker Xscape, which has never been used in a partnership before, from a reimagined lens.

The iconic silhouette is made with a CrosliteTM foam upper, a bold midsole with added height, and a sawtooth outsole for expert traction and finish.

Featuring two tonal colour-ways named Slate Grey and Desert Grass, each clog is a mirror of the other and encapsulates Aries’ interpretation of a ‘trip’. This idea is shown through crystal JibbitzTM charms that mimic items you could find on an adventure.

The limited-edition JibbitzTM showcase amethyst and citrine crystals, seashells, snail shells, natural amber stones, magic mushrooms and a golden nugget.

Of course the signature Aries Roman ‘Column’ isn’t missed out during this collab as a removable and adjustable tonal back strap can be seen with classic Aries braided 6MM paracord rope and reflective fleck.

Campaign imagery is shot by the infamous duo, acclaimed Photographer Colin Dodgson and i-D’s Creative Director and World Land Trust Ambassador, Jonny Lu.

With previous work together including the World Land Trust’s 30th Anniversary, Deeper Green, the two yet again share their incredible talents for this collaborative campaign in the volcanic and natural landscape of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.
