Just a few days ago, we spotted a NEW shoe trend in Disney World — the Disney x Native shoes. They’re also available online now too.
These shoes are similar to Crocs in terms of their material, but more similar to Keds in terms of their actual design. Immediately, we wondered, will Disney Crocs become old news? Are there enough #TeamCrocs fans out there to keep them alive, or will #TeamNative take over? Well, today we stumbled upon a serious SHOE STANDOFF happening. You’ll see what we mean. 😉
As we walked around Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we encountered the shoe showdown of the year, nay the CENTURY. Not only were the shoes forced to live in the same park, they were placed just FEET away from one another (pun very much intended).
We could practically hear them yelling at each other from across the way. Imagine. All day. Staring at each other. The battle of the plastic shoes.
Disney Crocs: Listen up kid. This town ain’t big enough for the two of us. I’ve been here since before you were even BORN. I’ve even got Mickey-shaped holes.
Crocs: There are SO MANY of me! I come covered in designs featuring the beloved Haunted Mansion, Disney snacks, and I’ve even gone super retro and cool. Umm…do I even need to mention PLATFORMS? They’re cool. Look it up. I’ve got designs for kids and adults. I can Tik the Toks and tweet like no other bird can. I may not always be the most stylish shoe in the bunch, but people think I’m super comfortable and especially great in wet weather! You could NEVER. Don’t you “OK, boomer” me, young blood!
Disney x Native Shoes: OK, boomer (hehe). You’re old stuff Crocs. I’m the new kid on the block and I’m taking over. Step. Aside. First of all, I’m recyclable, lightweight and you know what people LOVE? Saving the earth. Do you do that? Nah, but I DO! It’s called going green. LOOK IT UP.
Disney x Native Shoes: Also, have you SEEN how parents love me?? I’m comfy, versatile, waterproof. I am perfection. AND, some might even find me to be more stylish in terms of my overall design (SHOTS FIRED). AND I’m covered in designs featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse — the OGs. You’re toast Crocs. I’m the new kicks in town.
Oh man. That got heated. There’s room in this town for both of ya!
And yes, we just gave imaginary voices to Disney shoes. And you just read about it. You’re welcome. But in all seriousness (haha, J/K. We’re talking about fighting shoes. Good luck taking us seriously here!) look at this video. TRY to not feel heartbroken for Crocs just blowin’ in the wind while the Natives are over there with guests buying them up like they’re the new hotness.
Which would you choose?! Crocs or the Disney x Native shoes? pic.twitter.com/ghAUv8wafX

Just for reference, some of the Crocs we spotted on shopDisney recently were priced at $49.99 or $54.99, while the kids’ shoe we saw was priced at $39.99. Meanwhile, adult Native Disney shoes are $54.99, with kid sizes priced at $44.99.
Which shoe will emerge victorious? Is there room for both shoes to survive together? It truly is a shoe standoff.
Are you #TeamCrocs or #TeamNative? Or #TeamOtherShoe? 😂 Settle this shoe showdown in the comments!
