Victoria Beckham Would ‘Rather Die’ Than Wear The Crocs Sent By Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber sent a pair of lilac Crocs embellished with cartoon animals to Victoria Beckham, for her to wear and try them out.
Beckham took to her Instagram Story on April 27 to show off the lilac Crocs she received from ‘Peaches’ singer. “A lot of people have been asking me what I’m planning on wearing after lockdown,” she wrote to her 28.9 million followers. “What do we think about this suggestion from @justinbieber?”
The fashion designer then gave fans a close-up look at the shoes, which feature various charms, from Justin’s Drew House collab. “OK this is so kind of Justin to send me some Crocs,” Victoria said. “Never worn a pair of Crocs. This did make me laugh, I mean, it is the thought that counts. Thank you so much.”

Beckham also posted a poll on Instagram stories asking her fans if she will be wearing the footwear or not. She added: “Will I be wearing lilac crocs?!” She also noted that she “can’t wait” to see the results. “Well that was close! 🤔 I think I’d rather die but thank you anyway @justinbieber 😂” Beckham added in a later Instagram Story that “the Beckhams still love you, @justinbieber! 😂💕” as a little consolation to Bieber following her very public rejection of his collaborative gift.
It appears that Bieber actually sent the shoes to the entire Beckham family, as David Beckham and 16-year-old son Cruz Beckham also posted about the Crocs.
In an interview, Beckham talked about her design mentality and how it ties into her personal style. She prefers not to wear things that are complicated or that are just aggressively showy like Crocs with embellished characters. When designing her clothing line, “I was really focusing on the brand, looking at its DNA and at my community, being true to who I am and what my strengths are. I see those as beautiful clothes, great silhouettes, strange colours that you wouldn’t typically put together, which are almost so wrong they’re right,” she said.
