When Levi’s, Crocs, and PROLETA RE ART Collide

In the world of shoe design, where perfection often reigns supreme, PROLETA RE ART takes a bold step into the realm of imperfection. Known for embracing the beauty of left-over fabrics and unique textures, PROT, the creative force behind Japanese label PROLETA RE ART, is back to disrupt the status quo.

Their latest collaboration brings together unlikely bedfellows: Levi’s and Crocs. Yes, you read that right. The result? A special collection of shoes and shoe bags that redefine what it means to be fashion-forward.

What’s the twist? It’s all about the denim. PROT scoured the Levi’s office for dead stock denim fabrics accumulated over the years. These discarded swatches of denim, once forgotten, now find new life in a limited collection of clog-style shoes. The vintage denim aesthetic adds an unexpected charm to the classic Crocs silhouette.

But here’s where the magic happens. Each piece of denim is carefully selected and paired with UROBOROS panels, handmade by none other than PROT himself. Each panel is placed on the Crocs one-by-one, a painstaking process that culminates in a true work of art.


Only 60 pairs of these unique creations exist, and they are not your run-of-the-mill shoes. While they are indeed wearable, their true essence lies in the artistry behind them. PROLETA RE ART, Levi’s, and Crocs have woven their distinctive DNA into every stitch and panel, creating a masterpiece that defies convention.

So, if you’re on the lookout for a pair of shoes that not only make a statement but also challenge the norms of design, keep an eye on this remarkable collaboration.
