Crocs’ New Hiking Clog Is Practically Perfect Highsnobiety

One Crocs’ best feature is the practicality of its lightweight, slip-on shoes. And its upcoming clog, the Crocs Quick Trail, sees the brand’s signature mules get even more utilitarian than usual.

Made to traverse hiking trails and tackle inclines, the Quick Trail upgrades Crocs’ Classic Clog, its most famous shoe, re-imagining it for the great outdoors.

However, this is no new clog design created by Crocs in response to the current outdoor footwear boom. No, it’s instead the return of an obscure trail sandal from the Crocs archive.

Crocs’ Quick Trail is a shoe that, until now, has virtually no digital footprint beyond an expired Amazon listing and a pair up for sale on Grailed.

Whispers of the Quick Trail clog’s return began after Simone Roche’s Spring/Summer 2024 runway show

The London-based designer’s next Crocs collab was on full display for its SS24 collection presentation.

Amongst the shoes that Rocha presented were a selection of Crocs Quick Trails decorated with massive pearls and other shiny jewel Jibbitz, taking the outdoor sandal to delicate new heights.

The reborn Crocs Quick Trail clog then began appearing on social media once Crocs’ special projects overseer Ryan Forsyth began gifting the shoe to influencers like customization queen Nicole McLaughlin.

Crocs’ tech-y new shoes are releasing on February 2, going off of the posts that followed Forsyth’s seeding spree.

The most important takeaway is that the Simone Rocha collaboration will help usher in the Crocs Quick Trail’s return before the model receives a proper reintroduction in coming months.

A pair of slip-on clogs with holes across the upper probably isn’t your typical outdoor-ready shoe, however Crocs has managed to create a vast selection of mulei-esque hiking shoes that have the substance to support hikers during any casual outdoor activities.

For example, Crocs’ recently announced Off-Grid Clogs take a few lessons from HOKA’s outdoor range with their chunky, grippy outsole while the All-Terrain Atlas Crocs shoe is made to go across every terrain, like the name says.

And then there’s Crocs’ recent collaborations with outdoor labels ROA and Satisfy Running, which delivered a bonanza of functional clogs. 

The Quick Trail clog sees Crocs take one comfy step further into the world of functional, outdoor footwear.

Does that mean it will stop entertaining us with its wild collaborations?

Of course not, that’s a big part of Crocs’ split personality that keeps us all on our toes.
