Crocs is celebrating Hello Kitty‘s 50th anniversary, taking its customers to new heights.
The footwear brand released a new collection inspired by Sanrio’s cartoon character on Wednesday.

Now, Crocs has revealed other styles from the collaboration.

The highlight of the pack is the Hello Kitty Siren Clog, which comes with a glittery blue platform and a 3.6-inch block heel. The style also has motifs all over, a Hello Kitty red bow and figure Jibbitz charms. The style is available for $99.99 in women’s and men’s sizes.
Another style available is the Stomp Slide, which comes with red platform soles and a 2.7-inch block heel. Like the Siren Clog, the slides also come with a Hello Kitty red bow Jibbitz charm and feature motifs throughout. The Stomp Slide is available for $79.99
Crocs and Sanrio are longtime partners. The footwear brand has released different collaborations dedicated to Hello Kitty and the cartoon’s friends over the years, including styles inspired by Keroppi, Kuromi and Purin.
Hello Kitty was created in 1974. The character came to the U.S. two years later, when Sanrio opened a Gift Gate store in San Jose, Calif.
To celebrate the cartoon character’s milestone, Sanrio is releasing different collaborations this year, including one with Adidas. Both brands released a collaborative slide that is available on StockX for $76.
