Why Crocs are trending again

Although Crocs stilettos never really caught on as a trend, the world’s fascination with these Croslite clogs never really died out either. Introduced in 2002, any waning popularity these amphibious shoes may have experienced over the past two decades has been offset by the trend that prioritizes comfort. That, and the fact that your favorite celebrity has probably been photographed sporting them as well.

What is ‘Croctober’?

National Croc Day is Oct. 23. It’s a day to proudly wear your boldest Croc colors and proclaim your love for these comfortable shoes. Since Crocs have been around for 20 years, October has been dubbed “Croctober,” allowing the company to dedicate an entire month to celebrating fans of this popular footwear. Crocs began the festivities by giving away free shoes for the first seven days of the month. Now, the company is promising deals, surprises and a 20th Anniversary Croc Day Party on Oct. 23. If you don’t already own a pair (or more), you’ll want to get your Crocs now so you can join in the celebration.

Why are Crocs so popular?

When you find a good thing, you hang onto it. Crocs are a good thing. They endure because they’re comfortable, practical, expressive and a favorite of celebrities. That’s why they remain popular despite the controversy over how garish their appearance might be to some. 


You can’t get much more comfortable than a soft, breathable, open shoe. Crocs offer support and because of the ventilation ports, your feet will never sweat.


Crocs offer reliable traction, they can get wet and they’re effortless to clean. It only takes a second to slip in or out of your Crocs, and thanks to them appearing on the runway last year, they can be worn in nearly any social situation.


It’s impossible to find a shoe that lets you show more personality than Crocs. Not only can you get them in nearly any color or color combination you can imagine, you can also customize them by popping in your favorite Jibbitz charms.

A favorite of celebrities

Who’s your favorite celebrity? Chances are, if you do a Google search, you’ll find a picture of them wearing a pair of Crocs. This goes for everyone from Kendall Jenner to Post Malone. You can even find a picture of Prince George wearing Crocs.
