We have a lot of feelings about Questlove's Oscars Crocs

Sure it’s been a while since we’ve seen a red carpet, but Questlove has made sure to bring some of the lockdown vibes of the past year to Oscars 2021 as he rocked a pair of gold Crocs.

Seriously. Crocs X Oscars happened. But if anyone can pull off such a look, usually relegated to, well, not the biggest event in the Hollywood calendar, it The Roots’ star, right?

Even better is he wore the divisive footwear with socks, as he sauntered down the carpet otherwise suited up on Sunday evening.

Questlove is the musical director for this year’s event, which is looking quite different this year – aside from the questionable Crocs – with social-distancing and lots of masks on the red carpet, but not a Zoom connection in sight.

And anticipating some hoodies, which have been rocked at the pandemic awards shows so far, Oscars producers Steven Soderbergh, Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins previously sent a letter to all nominees that stipulated the formal dress code.

It read: ‘If you’re wondering about the dress code (as well you should), we’re aiming for a fusion of inspirational and aspirational, which in actual words means formal is totally cool if you want to go there but casual is really not.’

When it came to Questlove’s jazzed-up footwear, though, fans who tuned into the pre-show coverage were tickled by the musician’s style.

Some demanded to know where they can find their own pair of gold Crocs, as others felt it was all sorts of 2021 chaotic vibes.
