Crocs celebrates the fun of being a little different and encourages fans to “Find Your Fun” in every colorful pair of shoes.
Since its inception in 2002, Crocs has sold more than 300 million pairs of shoes in more than 90 countries around the world.
The year 2002 saw the birth of Crocs, Inc. in Boulder, Colorado by 3 friends: Scott Seamans, Lyndon "Duke" Hanson, and George Boedecker, Jr.
They decided to develop and market a footwear called Crocs shoes intended as boating / outdoor shoes known for it’s slip resistance and non-marking sole.
How did Crocs get its name? Just like the crocodile, Crocs can be worn on land or in water. Its official name is “Duke”.
Crocs debuted at the Ft. Lauderdale boat show in Florida, November 2002.
Clogs were thrown at passersby, demonstrating how light they are. Despite some funny looks, all 1,000 pairs were sold.
The first model was called “BEACH”
And the first style specifically for women was called “NILE”
To bring profound COMFORT, FUN, COLOR and INNOVATION to the world’s feet.
Crocs is liberating. Our shoes help people feel relaxed, empowering them to be a little different – not in a crazy, over the top way- just a little bolder, more colourful, more themselves. More FUN.
It’s a kind of fun that’s not conventional, and we’re COMFORTABLE with that.
Why We Matter:
Crocs makes shoes that make people happy- with our own kind of fun.
Crocs is the fun of being a little different.
