    I'm sure the knock off market took away a lot of their sales too.

    You should do a video on one of the largest companies you never heard of that you if not bought there product you at least saw it in every grocery store, and have eaten in every restaurant and hotel.

    I dunno about you Company Man, but I only wear the slipper variant of Crocs. I think I borrowed a pair from someone (don't judge) and I realized these things are extremely comfortable and durable, so I asked for a pair of crocs as a birthday gift about 8 years back. Compared to the generic $3-$5 slipper brand we have here, Crocs are extremely durable. After 8 years of use they're finally starting to wear thin so I'm gonna get new ones, but if you want slippers, they're really some of the best slippers you can get.
    I don't wear these things for fashion. For guys we like the durability and practicality of these things.

    LiteRide Lace look pretty cool, but it's winter now. They have some interesting boot options I have never seen before but I need to check them out in the physical store first before I place an order for black Friday.

    Never really liked them and all of those Crocs knockoffs can't have helped them any either.

    I love their shoes. Not their classic model but their sandals and boat/ballerina shoes. I have a pair that I wear regularly since 2010 and it still looks great. If I ever get their classic model they would only be used as slippers or for cleaning.

    The fact that the crocs are ugly is what makes them fashionable. Kinda like how Uggs were boots that were made to look Ugly but people call them cute, because they look bad it looks good if that makes sense...

    I LOVE Crocs ! I only wear Crocs. Whether it is Croc sandals, Croc running shoes, Croc rain boots, Fuzzy Crocs and even the Classic Croc. It is the only Brand name item I will purchase. EVERYONE hates them but, I love the comfort and unique look to them.

    Crocs are the ugliest shoes ever. I don't think they are comfy or durable, or anything but CHEEP bits of foam people try to pass as shoes

    I have only ever had one pair of Crocs and I didn't even ask for them someone just bought them for me. I have to say they were the most uncomfortable pair of shoes I have ever had. I ended up throwing them out, as they chafed my heels raw.

    I wear Crocs when I shoot my Glocks. It's the age of plastic, baby! I'm old and my chances of getting a woman who doesn't come with a fee schedule are slim-to-none anyway, so what do I care if they're ugly?

    if they had a hold on social media (ie a KILLER twitter account) i bet their sales would be more consistent. i just don't think they know who their demographic is: they think it's one thing but it's actually another.

    I think that at least in the US - where it is estimated that up to around 30% of the population will be 65 years of age or older by 2030 - Crocs will see another good upswing in sales because a lot of middle aged and older people just don't feel that peer pressure to jump on the "hater" bandwagon, preferring instead to enjoy comfortable footwear as opposed to the "looks" based torture devices being foisted on us from "high fashion" houses and designers (and really, some of the shoes and clothing coming from said "high fashion" are absolutely hideous!)
    For myself, I actually *like* the "look" of the classic Croc clog and I *love* their comfort and durability. I always have them in Black, Navy, Chocolate, Khaki, and Slate Grey, as well as some of the more fun colors. First came across them after suffering (and let me tell you, suffering is the right word here) from a bout of plantar fasciitis. A friend recommended Crocs. I was so desperate for relief that I tried them...and have never looked back in the ten years since.
    Call me - and my happy, happy feet - firmly in the pro-Crocs camp.
    * _Edited to add that I also wear Birkenstocks and Keen sandals. But Crocs are my go-tos most of the time_ *

    I have a pair that I donated in dark blue (my foot got bigger) another pair I use for going to the lake in red so they stand out (my brother has tried to get rid of them bc they're ugly. SO RUDE!) and my home pair in stylish black... the lake/home are each 6+ years old.... yeah. Very good and ugly shoes.

    I don’t think crocs were ever social.y acceptable.lol. My accepted by the few that like them.lol. Only kids, fishers, and farmers can acceptably pull them off.lol. There’s no excuse otherwise. The ONLY TIME I would’ve bought a pair was last year or two ago. I work at a thrift store and a pair of HIGH HEELED crocs came in xD I would’ve bought them but they were a size 8 and I’m a 9 or 10 (depending on brand).they were hideous, and because they were high heeled I wanted them as a joke to wear around once in a while haha

    Ugly as hell. I have never owned or worn them. Martha Stewart introduced her pair as a gardening shoe. A celebrity wore them in public and everyone lost their minds.
    It is definitely a genius item in the marketing standpoint.

    Although I would not say I like the look of Crocs. I do however really like them when I'm out on the boat or doing yard work around the house. They are super practical for those applications but a fashion statement they are not.

    i had drocs once when i was kid but they didnt sell them in wide cuz my whole fammily has a huge issue of duck foot so the sides right where it its open and where it closes over the foot chafed so much that it bled. my old shoes were crap and my mom got me them in spring after the thaw so i had to wear them every day. to put it simply, i hate the damn things and they look ugly, but if your they feel fine for you and you enjoy or dont mind the look go for it, me personally im gonna were my boots all year with some clean comfy socks.

    I wear them as a in-between shoe when I'm driving to work and don't want to mess up my car floor or walk outside in my work out shoes. 13 years strong, tough and ugly just like my di-shwasher, you can put ANYTHING in that POS.
