Happy Birthday Crocs!

Happy Daddy Crocs!

Wow – I was amazed to find out that Crocs are now 10 years old! I can still remember the first time I saw Crocs – they were so unique and different from any type of shoes I’d ever seen before! My dad has been having trouble with his back recently and a friend suggested that I give him a pair of Crocs. He has been so happy since I gave them to him – he says he feels so good when he is wearing them!

Crocs have come a long way in the past 10 years and there are now an amazing variety of shoes and boots available in their product line!

    I remember when I lived in Toronto, my girlfriends used to say they were a definite fashion faux-pas (and that we were supposed to only wear cute/sexy shoes with a heel). Well, I wear Crocs and love them. They are SO comfy! I live on an island where outdoor activities are every day life. We’re out and about A LOT and when you need something comfy, you want Crocs!

    happy birthday crocs!

  5. I might be part of the minority, but there are no crocs in our house! I think we might get a pair for DS as they are easy to take on and off.

  6. I don’t have any of my own but my kids do (hand-me-downs). Nothing against them, I just like my Birks… It’s neat to see the timeline, I didn’t know anything about them.

    I cannot believe it has been 10 years already; thinking back though my eldest who is now 13 wore them when he was a toddler.

    July 28- I remember the first Crocs I say. Children in our Subdiviision were getting off the bus and they were wearing these amazing colours on their feet. I thought they were so colourful. Now they have 300 or more varities for men, women and children. Way to go, Crocs!-el03ro
