Chelsea’s Fashion-Forward Reece James Becomes The New Face Of Crocs

England and Chelsea F.C. right back, Reece James’ new partnership with Crocs and the new Echo Clog collection, demonstrates how James is helping pave a way for young players to express themselves off the pitch.

Having secured the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Super Cup with Chelsea, at the age of 23, James has established himself as one of football’s brightest prospects. 

However, it’s his sense of individuality and fearless style that’s set James apart from so many others and made him a popular favourite in the modern game. This, combined with the rapid rising popularity of Crocs among youthful people, makes them the ideal duo.

James has shown more than a slight interest in contemporary fashion, from strutting his stuff in an all-over, fuzzy Marni outfit and sitting front row at the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2023 show.

Out of all the footwear brands you can imagine an established footballer partnering up with, Crocs is a slightly surprising one. However, when considering the ever-changing modern game and players prioritising getting those brand deals secured, it was only a matter of time until the popular Crocs partnered with someone influential such as James.

With Crocs’ ‘Come as You Are’ slogan that encourages everyone to be comfortable with what you wear and James’ self-secured and fearless self-expression, a linkup between the two makes perfect sense.

The first linkup between the Chelsea superstar and Crocs focuses on the Echo Clog. First debuting in 2022, the Echo Clog is a new silhouette that offers a fresh and contemporary design with a sporty and street-led aesthetic (seen in the gallery above). 

Decorated in a one-of-a-kind Bone/Stucco marbled pattern plus more additional neutral colourways, the new season Crocs Echo collection is available to purchase now from the Crocs webstore.
