Salehe Bembury has announced a super limited edition of his Crocs Pollex Clog made in collaboration with the legendary graffiti artist Futura.
First teased by the artist when accepting the Collection of the Year trophy on behalf of Bembury at the 2023 FN Achievement Awards, the clog features a colorful blue and green print in the trademark style of Futura’s artwork — including his signature atom motif. The graffiti-style print carries across the foam clog’s exterior, while the solid bleu interior hosts the Futura Laboratories “FL” logo on the heel.

Futura has long been a staple in the streetwear and sneaker scenes, but a recent spike in attention to the artist for a younger generation has included a three-way collaboration with Off-White and Nike for an SB Dunk Low limited to just 8 pairs auctioned for charity last year. Prior to his passing, Virgil Abloh also had Futura create a live artwork during one of Abloh’s Louis Vuitton runway shows in 2019. Rumors have also indicated that another Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low will release some time this year.
Bembury’s Crocs Pollex line will add its highly anticipated first sneaker, the Juniper, this spring. The sudden reveal for a new Pollex Clog edition, however, shows there’s still ample life in the silhouette that kicked off the partnership and helped cement Crocs’ place in sneaker culture.
The Futura x Salehe Bembury x Crocs Pollex Clog will release Feb. 15 exclusively through Bembury’s Be A Spunge website. Only 1,000 pairs of the shoe have been made, and pricing should be remain at the standard $85.
