Grammy-award winning artist SZA has announced a new collaboration with Crocs, coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Month.

The SZA x Crocs collaboration includes a Classic Clog and Classic Slide, both dressed in a wood grain print. A variety of Jibbitz charms showcase SZA’s personality and love for nature and inner peace. These include a yin-yang symbol, evil eye amulet, fishing lures, an inhaler, flowers, and a weed leaf (though SZA says its a maple leaf to represent her hometown of Maplewood, New Jersey). There is also a brain Jibbit with “mental health matters” in colorful letters.

As part of the collaboration, SZA and Crocs partnered with with three social advocates (SZA’s Superheroes) to bring attention to mental health and self-care. Sage Adams, Yaris Sanchez, and Donté Cally were selected for the positive change they make in their own communities and across the world. Memphis-based illustrator Mia Saine was also selected to bring their vibrant artwork to the project. Crocs is providing a monetary donation to the chosen charities of these individuals involved, including Sad Girls Club, The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation, and My Sistah’s House Memphis.

“I feel like mental health advocates are important because I need to look at somebody and be like, ‘Oh, this person that I didn’t expect to be dealing with this is dealing with something that’s similar to me,'” says SZA. “I love to be comfortable and I love to express myself at the same time and Crocs helps me do both of those things.”

The raffles for the SZA x Crocs Classic Clog and Classic Slide are open now on the Crocs website. Entries will be accepted until May 6th at 12pm ET. Pairs will also be available via Foot Locker on May 6th.
