New York rapper Nicki Minaj is starting all sorts of unintentional trends thanks to her fame. The hip-hop star has reportedly sparked a trend in online searches for ‘pink Crocs’ after she shared a photo on Instagram wearing a bedazzled pair.
Nicki Minaj’s Feet Make Site Croc Out
Minaj’s Instagram post is so powerful that it not only trended on its own when she published it but caused Google searches for pink Crocs to take off. The post served as a sort of celebrity endorsement that fans could get behind during the pandemic when comfortable footwear is especially appealing.
Thanks to her post, Minaj reportedly caused a 4,900% spike in sales of pink Crocs specifically, and even crashed the retailer’s website. Crocs have become somewhat of a staple shoe during the pandemic, with stocks soaring and the company pulling in record amounts of revenue. Most recently, Questlove sported a gold pair at the 2021 Oscars — “I’m tired of suffering while stunting,” he said on Instagram after the red carpet — while “Succession” star Nicholas Braun wore them to the Emmys in September, proving that there’s no occasion too formal for Crocs.
