Crocs shoes break the typical fashion mold by providing comfort and reliability through inventive silhouettes in a range of colors to match every vibe. The footwear brand’s latest style, the Crocs Echo Storm, is an adventurous addition to the brand’s catalog. Characterized by a futuristic shape and versatile colorways, the Echo Storm revamps the Crocs you know and love.
New York City’s raw edge and grit draw many parallels to the bold Echo Storm, which is why Crocs headed to NYC to spotlight the city’s unique perspective on fashion and street style. The brand tapped multifaceted content creator Joe Floww who shows off his own flow and experimental taste through dynamic videos. In his content, Joe does not shy away from displaying his bold personality and affinity for fashion, dancing and music. Hitting the streets, Crocs teamed up with Joe to show off the Echo Storm through an on-the-go, urban lens.
How do you approach styling yourself — what are some essential elements of an outfit for you?
My styling depends on the vibe of the day. I love styling myself very specifically for where I’m going or what I’m doing. Some essential elements of an outfit for me are slim shades, silver jewelry, and an oversized fit.
What does “personal style” really mean to you and what characterizes that?
Personal style is imagination. It's how I choose to represent myself to the world. For me, personal style is characterized by the color of clothing, the length, and overall aesthetic. I can tell very quickly if something is Joe-coded or not.
What adventurous styling tip would you give creators or fashion lovers trying to expand their wardrobe and styling possibilities?
There are no rules to styling. If you have second thoughts about an outfit decision because you’re worried it’s too much, then you should probably go with that option.
Crocs’ new silhouette, the Echo Storm, is a disruptive new style for the footwear brand. How do you disrupt fashion norms through your styling methods?
I disrupt fashion norms by juxtaposing different styles. An example of this is wearing jean shorts with a suit to church, or combining masculinity and femininity. I love to mix different aesthetics and make them my own.
What approach did you take to styling the Echo Storm for this shoot? How did you make the silhouette feel true to you?
I wanted to highlight my style while also focusing on the Crocs, so I made them the base of the outfit and made my stylistic choices based on their colorway! I made it true to me by adding color and pieces of clothing you might not normally see paired together.
Not only do you share your creative vision through fashion and styling, but your videos also highlight music and dancing. How do you use all of these mediums to express yourself?
All of these elements form together to create Joe Floww. So when I’m expressing myself, I’m really just acting out of my authentic self!
