Crocs

So, the NY Times ran this piece on May 4th about the popularity of Crocs. For those who don't know, Crocs are these colorful sandals. The writeup in the Times talks about how Crocs are a bit different from other fashion trends, in that they started in the middle of the country, rather than on one of the coasts. Apparently, the company originally distributed to the Midwest and Colorado, before spreading nationally. Explains why the first pair I ever saw was on Cody's feet (who's originally from Colorado).

*laugh* you just posted this half an hour ago?

i found it searching ljseek for crocs... i first found out about them a month or more ago, while reading - someone was looking for cozy shoes, i still don't know where that original post is, at ahy rate, yes. shoes are nice.

Hmm . . . I didn't know about LjSeek. I'll have to check it out a bit . . . I first saw the Crocs back in July '05, and was thinking they were interesting . . . but not enough that I want a pair (even though I do love bright colors).

not in NY

I can attest that this is one trend not originating on the East Coast. I've seen neither hair nor hide of these shoes in the city. People here do a fair amount of walking and, despite Manhattan's beauty-first ethos, a sizable subset would sacrifice style for comfortable shoes. So I'm somewhat surprised these haven't had any presence here.

Why do you never sign your name? Anyway, I'm going to guess these probably won't succeed in a city - from the looks of them, they don't look like good walking shoes, as in they're too flip-flop-ish.
