London Fashion Week might've wrapped up weeks ago but to designer Christopher Kane, it's not over yet, especially the backlash he received for his use of Crocs shoes which he adorned with mineral stones. But you can hate the shoes all you want because Kane doesn't give a sh-t.

"Crocs are great, I love them," he told WWD. "I don't really care what anyone thinks. I don't think anyone's got the right to say right or wrong, unless they're God, otherwise just shut up."

"I knew people were going to react in that way, but it wasn't about being controversial," Kane added. "The fact is Crocs is a huge successful business on its own, they don't need me to make them even more successful. Obviously people do like them, and that's a different customer that I want to grab. I want to include everyone and not be a snob."

The man has spoken. Keep your Crocs.
