Just one week after Nicki Minaj launched a Crocs craze, the rapper whipped out a fresh new pair.
The star took to Instagram on Tuesday (May 18) to show off a sleek black pair of the comfortable slides, complete with similarly sparkling Jibbitz as with her pink pair earlier this month, that included one with Chanel’s double-C logo. The Nicki Minaj crocs quickly trended on social media and the new ones have inspired similar reactions.
After Minaj shared a snapshot of herself in pink Crocs last week, the photo led to people rushing out to find a pair for themselves — “pink crocs” and “nicki minaj crocs” were breakout searches that day, Google Trends said — and resulted in a 4,900% spike in sales of pink Crocs. The retailer’s website crashed too, according to reports.
“Did you expect Crocs sales to soar after posting your picture?” one fan asked Minaj in a tweet on over the weekend.
