Crocs future looking dim. Cue violins.
It's no secret that I am not the world's biggest cheerleader of Crocs. I wrote this searing investigative expose on the duck shoes back in 2007, when you couldn't walk ten steps through the mall without seeing an entire family wearing matching Crocs in day-glo orange.
Seems their light is dimming. Sales are down, prospects are murky. This Washington Post piece explains it all. And while I'm never sad to see ugly footwear disappear, I am sad whenever people face losing jobs. Hope Crocs can pull out some stops for the employees, who despite their heinous taste in shoes, are probably good folks.
See? I DO have a heart! (They're still hideous).
