Angela Iacono-Discussion Week 12

Crocs are rubber clog-like shoes that came out in 2002 and were created by Scott Seamans, Lyndon Hanson, and George Boedbecker. These shoes were extremely popular and fun for children and teens at the time. You could buy accessories for your crocs by putting them into the holes of the crocs and they came in a variety of colors. However, crocs became somewhat painful for some people to wear and caused blisters. Although, unsure of the direct decline of the crocs that is certainly the reason I stopped wearing them. They were once mainstream and then underground but now have become mainstream again with a higher price tag. Originally crocs were and still are $30 however, most of the crocs on the website are $40-$60. Crocs have come back in the mainstream and are more expensive due a rise in quality. Although not everyone and their mother are wearing crocs it has certainly comeback and I have seen a lot more people wear them now. I remember when crocs were constantly made fun of and now it’s trendy and cool to own a pair.

    I liked how you used something very common for this discussion. I always see these shoes but never payed attention to it so it was really nice to know a little more about them.

    Hi,

    Can’t help but see these shoes everywhere these days. I noticed that the brand has been using famous artists to design their own crocs which is making them a lot more popular.

    I remember when people used to be teased for having crocs and the past recent years I’ve noticed that almost everyone has a pair and customized it to their own likings.
