Brands gone wild
Sunday, October 26, 2008
As far as plastic sandals go, Crocs are all right. I had a pair that I wore to go to the beach or just to go get ice-cream: they were easy to wear, but not easy on the eyes. The shoes are kind of ugly and once everyone and their dog started wearing them the appeal was lost to me.
The makers of these rubber-molded sandals want to diversify their brand and have created an array of shoes that don't seem to have a defined market: Crocs boots, Crocs winter shoes, Crocs safety boots (I kid you not). Needless to say, these things should neither be worn during the winter nor while working with heavy machinery around: they are plastic molded sandals, enough said.
