Just like its sturdy rubber material, Crocs has managed to survive and thrive.
The proud “ugly” Utility shoe brand preferred by everyone by Justin Bieber Crocs announced this week that the average home gardener will see fourth-quarter sales jump from $ 407 million to $ 410 million in 2020. They forecast a further “accelerated” growth spurt of 25% for 2021.
“Amid a global pandemic in 2020, we will have the highest sales in Crocs history,” said CEO Andrew Rees said in a statement this week. “Our brand dynamics are extraordinary and we expect another record year in 2021.”
Why shouldn’t the polarizing rubber clogs make a comeback since the only excursion many have is to and from the mailbox?
Despite their looks, Crocs has been insanely successful in marketing to the next generation of fashion consumers – with you in mind, Gen Z. Collaborations with celebs like Justin Bieber, Post Malone and Bad Bunny sold out in a matter of hours.
The latest replenishment of the collaboration between the Grateful Dead and Chinatown Market Sold out a few hours after its release on January 12th.
Since beauty really lies in the eyes and feet of the beholder, we’ve rounded up some of our top croc picks, from classic colors to fur-lined winter clogs and everything in between. Make sure you bring some croc-adorned jibbitz with youEven if you want to go all-in with the comeback clogs.
When in doubt, stick with the classics.
The unisex option is a great base shoe for those who are just starting to slip into Crocs or just need to replace their long-time favorite pair. The unisex option sold at Walmart is available in black, white, navy, gray, pink, and light blue and is on sale now for $ 39.99 (down from $ 44.95).
A bestseller for the weather, these fluff-lined clogs combine the fur of other “ugly” shoe colleagues, UGGs, with the classic rubber body and back strap from Crocs.
The shoes are lined with what they call “fuzz” but can still be customized using the jibbitz tags in the holes on the top of the clog. The fuzzy shoes sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods come in a variety of colors including metallic silver, neon green, and tamer options like black, white, and light blue.
Why stop at just one trend when you could combine them?
Include both crocs and animal prints with an entire jungle-inspired collection. Check out their Amazon page to check out Crocs with leopard print, snake skin, and zebra stripes. I have no idea why there isn’t a pair of crocodiles on the site yet, but with new styles all the time, it will definitely happen soon.
Get the kids on the trend of fashion forward (or fashion backward?) With a pair of toddler and kid sized glitter crocodiles.
The glitter pair sold at DSW is available in both pink and purple and is four to six teenagers in size. They also wear a pair of gold glitter lined with fluff, available for toddlers between sizes four and 11.
Attention! A crocodile may be lurking in the camouflage.
Look closely and you will see these camouflage pattern crocs sold in unisex sizes at Dick’s Sporting Goods. The shoes are characterized by realistic tree and branch images and are great for hunting, walks in nature or simply to take you outside at home.
Another trend that has been thrown back from the past: combine the tie-dye craze of the 70s with your Crocs, now in new colors and patterns.
The classic rainbow tie dye is fully featured and ranges from four men and six women to 13 men and 12 women. There are also two different pastel tie patterns, a patriotic red, white, and blue tie, and a neon option.
