Crocs are not as cool as they used to be, but they are a lifesaver

Posted on Mon Jun 7 2010


Crocs just saved the life of an adorable 3-year-old boy. Can your shoe brand say that? Sure, the resin monstrosities have already been convicted of crimes against fashion humanity because, well, they're hideous. Never mind they've been seen on the famous feet of Heidi Klum and Adam Sandler and other celebrities who probably didn't buy them in the first place but know they can get away with wearing anything they want. Now, though, the clunky shoes are a life-saver, having stopped a jolt of electricity from killing little Harley Sutton-Dormer in the U.K. Without the colorful clogs, he could've been a goner, paramedics say. Crocs, which had its huge-selling heyday and then dropped off a cliff, needs to get that public-safety message out asap. At the very least, every helicopter parent in the world will buy a pair. New suggested tagline: "Good and grounded!"
