Must Have Dad Gear Alert! Shrek Crocs Are Coming!

Sep 8, 2023

I already used this image once today and I have a feeling it’s going to become a staple in my posts…

Shrek Crocs are coming and goddamn they are beautiful!

The new crocs dubbed the “Classic DreamWorks Shrek Clogs” are a neon green color with some light brown spotting to pay homage to Shrek’s green — and often dirtied — appearance. The shoes come with the ogre’s classic ear buttons and button for his large nose placed on the clog’s holes in front of the shoe.

Completing the design of the shoes is a brown fuzzy back strap, which mimics the popular Dreamworks character’s iconic brown vest in the movies, along with an “S” written in Shrek letters, connecting it to the shoe.

Crocs also charmingly referred to the shoes in a press release as “wonderfully hideous.

Crocs said the Classic DreamWorks Shrek Clogs will be sold in the adult version for $59.99 and kids and toddler’s versions for $49.99 and $44.99, respectively. The special edition shoes will be available on and select wholesale partners worldwide starting on Sept. 13 at 12 p.m. –

Shrek was one of those movies that I watched countless times and would turn on when I needed a pick-me-up. It was about a loveable loser who finds friends and happiness and the girl of his dreams…Gee, I wonder why I related to this so much…

As a product, this plays to my sense of nostalgia and my Dad-need to have the coolest Crocs in the neighborhood. It’s rare when I feel like I “must-have” something but I have to say, these Shrek Crocs, feel like must-haves.
