Although, while they are few and far between, the shoes have got their fans, which is why they still exist.
Now, the design has been morphed into a handbag of all things. And yes, as is the case with the shoes, you can personalize them with charms.
The bag was discovered by an Amazon user, who subsequently posted a picture on social media, to the delight/horror of users. Produced by a brand called Optari, you can get your hands on one for between $19.99 and $24.99.

The bags are produced in the following colors: black, blue, Caribbean, green, pink, and purple.
They are described as a “durable handbag, comfortable lightweight girl’s or mom purse beach bag”. However, because they bear an uncanny resemblance to Crocs, they are being called a “Crocs purse”.
A picture of one of the bags was shared on Twitter by a user alongside another picture that read: “I didn’t think anything could be more hideous than the shoes. I was wrong.”

The tweet was captioned: “I do love all my purses, but I can’t… I just can’t. #shopping.”
While these handbags aren’t official Crocs products, the brand does make more than just shoes and also produces wristlets for $6.91 and crossbody bags for $19.98.
And with a little digging, it turns out that the bag’s design is not quite as new as it appears to be. Below is a tweet from 2013:

But hey! Each to their own. Someone must have thought the design was a good idea.
