It’s kind of a running joke in the shoe world that Crocs are ugly and low class, but Crocs are getting the last laugh during the pandemic. Their sales have gone through the roof and most people are attributing it to Crocs being comfortable. Especially since a lot more people work from home. And, because they’re made out of plastic which makes them easy to clean and sanitize. Sales grew enough to bring in $1.4 billion for 2020.
I’ve never worn a pair of Crocs. When they were really popular years ago, I had no idea what they were until the fad died down. Today, they’re especially popular with younger women. Part of that might be due to Crocs making special, celebrity branded pairs of shoes. Pairs like the Justin Bieber edition and the Post Malone Crocs. The Bieber ones are bright yellow with a tiny teddy bear and other figures attached to the top of the shoe. They are not for me……… or anyone wishing to be taken seriously. And maybe that’s kind of the point. Maybe, these days, comfort is more important than looks with shoes.
Actually, I think the Post Malone Crocs, the dark ones in the picture, look kind of cool. I’d wear those.
