The Crocs Brand

Crocs was founded in Colorado in 2002 by Scott Seamans, Lyndon Hanson, and George Boedbecker Jr.

When sailing, they came across a boat clog made by Canadian company Foam Creations using a new EVA foam material called Croslite, and the trio quickly acquired the rights to the manufacturing process and secured exclusive rights to the Croslite technology.

The first prototype was revealed at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show and sold out immediately. The brand then launched their first Croc model, ‘the Beach’, which is now known as Crocs Classics.

Crocs became very popular due to their comfort, breathability, and easiness to clean. Their moulded, non-slip and wipe-clean build meant they were spotted on the feet of nearly everyone who worked on their feet for hours, like nurses and kitchen workers.

Every Croc clog features thirteen holes in the top and sides to allow for airflow and customisation. In October 2006 the company purchased Jibbitz, which manufactures small accessories that can snap into these holes.

Love them or hate them, the ‘ugly’ Croc sandals are here to stay, with over 100 different styles for men, women and children.

Unveiling the first ever pair of designer Crocs at his London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 show, Kane set a precedent for collaborations on the famous clog. The marble-print colorways were accented by mineral stone Jibbitz. Two months later, the designer also dropped tiger-print Crocs with floral Jibbitz.

In Chinatown Market’s first collaboration with Crocs, they completely covered a pair of clogs with artificial grass.

According to the brand, they wanted to simulate the experience of walking barefoot on grass. Madness or genius? You decide!

The artist has collaborated many times with the Crocs brand, but his stand-out shoe has to be the one that dropped in 2019 – a black and blue Duet Max silhouette was given a rugged, chunky look with adjustable Velcro straps and a lobster-claw Jibbitz.
