Crocs shares surged as much as 13% to the highest intraday level since 2007.

Shares of Crocs Inc. rallied after an Instagram photo from pop star Justin Bieber suggested he will collaborate with the company on a pair of its distinctive footwear.

Soon, the musician said in the social-media post on Thursday along with a picture of orange Crocs floating in a swimming pool. The post had been liked more than 700,000 times within a few hours, including by the official Crocs account.

Crocs shares surged as much as 13% to the highest intraday level since 2007.

 

The vague but suggestive Instagram post drew attention in the sneaker world, where the once-uncool Crocs brand has gained in popularity thanks to collaborations with artists such as Post Malone and Bad Bunny. It also registered on Wall Street, and analysts say that a Bieber collaboration could lift Crocs into another dimension, citing the company’s previous team-ups.
