Watch This Tortoise’s Futile Attempts At Fornicating With A Croc

Today in extremely old video gems from the depths of YouTube, I bring you the sad story of Toby the Tortoise who spends a solid minute or so puttin’ in work with a discarded Croc on someone’s lawn. The tiny squeaks! His insistent, determined thrusts! The Croc’s complacency! This is what it’s like when you…

Orange Crocs Are Being Discontinued, So Mario Batali Ordered 200 Pairs

Carrie Bradshaw and her “Carrie” necklace. Karl Lagerfeld and his black sunglasses. Mario Batali and his orange crocs. Some pairings are just go together like peanut better and jelly. Which is why when Crocs announced it would be discontinuing its orange shoes, Batali did the only rational thing and ordered 200 pairs of them. He…

11 Celebs Committing Acts Of Crocery

I feel very strongly about Crocs. As in, they are the only kind of footwear I cannot tolerate. I hate them even more than I hate those toesies running shoes. And I really hate those. I will excuse Tevas or flip flops or aqua socks or platform thongs, or those Fit sneakers, or even those…

Spencer The Pup Gets New Paws

Spencer the pup’s legs were crushed when he was just a baby, rendering his back legs totally useless. So his owners took him to a Tampa, Florida, prosthetic clinic to see if it might be possible to make new legs for him. The hilarious solution? Prosthetic paws with Crocs shoes for covers.

We’re Breaking Up: Drunk Crocs President Who Claimed His Girlfriend Was Taylor Swift

Dear Darling George Boedecker,

I know you think you’re really super important as the founder of Crocs, the footwear of choice of obese Midwesterners and chef Mario Batali, but just because you managed to create a plastic shoe empire doesn’t mean you get to pretend our love wasn’t real.

According to…

The Only Crocs I’d Ever Wear

I have a sister, who shall remain nameless despite the public humiliation she deserves, who not only wears Crocs but actually wears Crocs with socks. Crocs with socks! I am related to this person!
The only “crocs” you’ll ever see on my feet are these gator-themed high heels by the Dutch artist Sit. These ca…

Crocs Made Over $1 Billion In 2011

For every one of us smug New Yorkers who wouldn’t be caught dead near a Croc, there are a dozen people who have no problem buying them (in multiple colors, even!) and wearing them while grocery shopping or gardening or checking the mailbox or doing all the things that normal people do. And don’t lie:…'s The Cut / January 14, 2012

Nina Garcia’s Rules For Adults Wearing Crocs

“I happen to think no one over the age of 10 should buy Crocs, unless you are Mario Batali.”
— Even though I think Nina Garcia is M-E-A-N to the people on “Project Runway,” I can’t deny she’s usually dead-on. And that goes double when talking about Crocs. [Racked]…

In A New Commerical, The Crocs Croslite Molests Lady Feet

You remember the other day I posted an ad featuring the Crocs Croslite, a freaky Crocs-monster that gets all intimate with women’s feet? Well, last night, I was laying about watching TV and thinking about something else, when I noticed what I was half-watching was a commercial featuring the Croslite itself. I realized that…

Want Croslite To Lick Your Feet?

Of all the creepy, weird, FAIL ads that we have seen here at The Frisky, this latest from Crocs, featuring a Croc monster called Croslite about to LICK SOMEONE’S FOOT or do something completely freaky and weird like that, is the worst. If I ever wake up in the middle of the night and find…

Crocs We Can Actually See Ourselves Wearing

I may be the most anti-Crocs person you’ll ever meet. So many people wear them — swear by them, even — but I just can’t get behind something functional yet, well, ugly. However, I just took a look at the rubber shoe brand’s new designs, and the appropriately named Lady slingback isn’t bad. They remind…

Native Shoes—The “Cool” New Crocs?

Behold the new shoe line, Native. The holed-up plastic kicks seem to be the hip, sleek, younger sister of the Croc family. We’re not sure if these will take off, but we’ll be watching.

What do you think, geek chic? Or is this the beginning of Crocapalooza 2.0? [High Snobette]…

Style Buzz: Crocs Take Over the World And Balloon Boy Is “Project Runway” Fan

Someone bailed Crocs out with a $30 million loan and they’ve gone bats**t with plans to open a Crocs-only retail store in Colorado. And they were so close to going out of business just a few weeks ago … Damn. [Denver Business Journal]
Was the Balloon Boy inspired by one of Christopher Straub’s “Project Runway”…

Would You Wear Canvas Shoes To Your Wedding?

What if it was for a really good cause? Forget your dainty stilettos, satin-covered pumps or even blue suede shoes, because if TOMS founder (and super hottie) Blake Mycoskie has his way, the shoe of choice for blushing brides will be a pair of canvas slip-ons. The charitable company, which donates shoes to needy childre…

Is The End Of Crocs Near?

Fashionistas, prepare to rejoice. It may soon be to time to celebrate the death of your loathed Crocs. It seems that after selling more than 100 million pairs since 2002, the company is facing mega losses and is on the verge of going broke. In the last fiscal year, the company lost $185.1 million, cut…

Fashion Nightmare: Croc Winter Boots

I am a staunch defender of Uggs — during frigid winter temperatures, when I have to run my dog out at midnight for a walk, nothing is better than those squishy, fur-lined boots. And I even saw them in a cool grey color this weekend! But, my mind, there is no greater fashion mistake tha…
