Clothing & Fashion
Crocs came onto the casual footwear scene in 2002, after being created in Boulder, Colorado, as a form of a boat shoe. Known for bringing comfort and style together, their coziness can be attributed to Croslite, a proprietary closed-cell foam resin. Over a billion Crocs are sold in over 90 countries each year. There are over 120 styles available for men, women, and children, with the signature shoe being the Classic Clog.
A fan of the shoes created National Croc Day and consumers picked up on it, eventually bringing it to the attention of Crocs, Inc., in 2017. The following year, Crocs released a limited edition gold-foiled Classic Clog on the day, which sold out within hours. In 2019, they partnered with Pizzaslime, a "premier streetwear brand," to create a glow-in-the-dark Classic Clog for the day. On National Croc Day, everyone is to wear Crocs. People show them off on social media, and National Croc Day parties are held. Crocs are so esteemed that the whole month of October has been dubbed Croctober.
