Dartmouth Mall Trip Shows Why Crocs Are Rockin’ the SouthCoast
Crocs are not new, but there are new Crocs, and they are taking the SouthCoast and the world by storm.
Twenty years after being introduced in 2002, Crocs footwear is more popular than ever. The official Crocs website boasts more than 700 million pairs sold in more than 90 countries with more than a billion dollars in annual sales – and that's no crock!
True confession time: I recently purchased a pair of Crocs, the fur-lined variety, and they are soft and warm on cold winter days. Since I am testifying, I love my Crocs and wear them everywhere.
For years I made sport of people who wore Crocs. Now that I think of it, they probably didn't care because they were comfortable. Nurses and waitresses all over the SouthCoast wear them. Why? Because they spend a lot of time on their feet and the shoes don't make their feet hurt.
My son and his fiancée asked for a pair of fur-lined Crocs for Christmas for walking the dog on cold days. I think they sleep in them. During a recent trip to the Dartmouth Mall, I tried on a pair of Crocs to see what the fuss was about, and I bought them on the spot.
Not only are Crocs comfortable, but the company is promising to become Net-Zero by 2030 by using something called bio-based Croslite in the production of its product. The company claims at "3.94 kg CO2 per pair of Classic Clogs, Crocs has a low CO2 footprint compared to many other iconic footwear styles."
Everywhere I look in the SouthCoast area people are rockin' their Crocs. That's an awful lot of happy feet. Just think, they may be saving the planet at the same time.
