This seems like much ado over nothing. Just because this company is about to tank, it doesn't mean that this style of footwear will disappear. This won't have any effect on the cheaper knock-offs that are sold in Wal-Marts/Targets/Payless/Etc. As long as people buy them, they'll still be available. I'm still not sure why anyone would want to be seen in public wearing this style of footwear, but to each their own.

True... what's funny is that before Crocs were around you could buy almost the exact same shoe in any garden department or store for about $10! So really you could say that Crocs were the knockoff!

(note to self: find a cheap ugly product, rebrand it, charge 3 times as much, become millionaire! )

The only good purpose they serve is as a camp shoe when backpacking. They are super light weight and can be worn with socks... but then again, the $10 garden clog variety works just as well!

For years, I refused to wear Crocs. Thought they were the fugliest things I'd ever seen. Wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of them.

Guess what I did a month ago?


















I bought a pair of 'jeweled' Crocs. (from Avon no less)

I hate to admit it, but they're kinda cute.

Thank God! I never liked the trend. Everyone i knew had a pair of them and i was like what are you hinking??I think they r repulsive. The only time i would ever wear those was if i was in a public shower.

I have Crocs in several colors. I wear them daily - I work at home. They are super comfortable.

Hubby and I have continual landscaping projects we are attending to (year round) and we love our Crocs for that. So convenient. We started buying the original "rubber" garden shoes in the 80s - b/f Crocs were around, I guess. They are the very best thing when digging in the dirt.

I have never worn them "out in public" and never will! But for around the house - they are wonderful. Maybe I should stock up if they are going out of fashion. The ones we bought in the 80s were not cheap - had to order them thru/ a garden catalogue. I would hate for them to go away . . .

Exactly! I think the original purpose of crocs is to be worn as gardening shoes.
