Versatile, comfortable, and beautiful. Crocs. This shoe brand is one of the early 2000s staples, founded in 2002. Originally a boating shoe. This shoe brand made its way into the hearts of children with colorful classic clogs and assorted Jibbitz. Jibbitz are assorted buttons that perfectly accentuate the round form of the modern classic rubber clog allowing a personal element to these plastic dream machines. The Croc community has recently been affected by the closing of all manufacturing plants, but claims were made that they are not on their way out of the shoe industry.

From weddings to runways, and even just hitting the docks to take a boat ride, this shoe is forever adapting to a diverse lifestyle. The Croc lifestyle has been adopted even in formal industries, such as the restaurant business. Despite some beliefs that Crocs are not so visually appealing, the Croc community still stands strong against these harsh opinions. My love for Crocs runs deep, as well as many of the opinions coming from Croc allies. Crocs embody the confidence of the wearer; with a shoe emulating crocodiles laden on your toes, how can an individual not conquer the world?

Crocs come in any color, to complement any outfit. Some individuals choose a more simplistic color, and some are bright and bold in their choices. Every age, young children to even the elderly can enjoy the simple pleasures that come along with being a part of the Croc community.

At Santaluces, Croc supporters can be seen through out the school. With more students adopting this shoe fashion trend each day. Santaluces student Madison Ford describes her experience with Crocs.

“Crocs are really comfortable and my favorite part is that I can customize them with all my favorite Jibbitz. Honestly, it is the best $38 dollars I have ever spent.”

These affordable replacements for a variety of shoes continue to sweep the Santaluces population, one student at a time.
