CROCS TO DEBUT DISNEY FOOTWEAR IN FALL
NIWOT, COLORADO – August 1, 2006 – Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX) today announced that it will introduce a limited edition line of footwear featuring some of Disney’s most popular characters. The new line, which will be called “Disney by CROCS™,” will be available at select U.S. retail locations prior to the 2006 Holiday season with an expanded product line launch occurring in Spring 2007.
Ron Snyder, CEO of Crocs, stated, “We are incredibly proud and excited to be aligned with one of the world’s leading brands and to bring a truly unique type of product to our customers. Disney characters symbolize fun and magic, and we think they are a particularly good fit with the Crocs brand.”
The Disney by CROCS line, which is targeted towards children and adults, will debut with special-edition Mickey Mouse die-cut Adult Beach and Kid’s Cayman models. These styles will be available in a broad range of two-toned color pallets including Mickey’s signature black and red. Other models include an array of unique designs emphasizing the distinctive personalities of Disney’s characters including Mickey and Friends, Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Disney Princess, Disney Fairies, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean and Disney*Pixar’s Toy Story and Cars.
*Crosses fingers they will have a Tink version in adult sizes*
I sure hope they don't forget the adults in this!
Mom and I was visiting her doctor when we started chatting with a lady. The lady raved about Crocs and how that her foot problems make it impossible to get around unless she wears Crocs.
I want a size 8 Gurgi or Figment and for mom a size 9-10 Goofy or Donald.
They are awesome shoes.
IMHO Crocs are the ugliest shoes I've ever seen! I cannot even imagine Disney theme's making them look good!
They are ugly, but I own 2 pairs, they are comfortable enough to wear. I would love a pair of black with mickey holes. is a M size.
I would wear crocks if they re-designed them to make them look a little less ugly.But they are really comfortable!Look at the pic who would like the way those look?

I have those exact ones in the picture above! It all started as a joke. The district manager from our corporate office bought them for me because I'm always grousing about how much I hate that color (the official Block green). I wore them at work on our open house day (yeah, with my navy blue suit, no less) to get back at her. They are AMAZING! I wore them at WDW this past spring, too.
ewww crocs!! everyone wheres them THEY ARE SOOOOO UGLY!!!!!!!
Adrien Your 14 year old disney expert! If I go crazy, will you still call me superman?
Honey, when you get to be my age, comfort comes before style ALWAYS!
Okay, they MAY be ugly, but they are comfy. I see everyone wearing them in Disney and that's probably why Disney wants to make a line of Disney CROCS. I will not be buying them. Not my style
I'm a baby Knight! UCF '13
They are amazingly comfy. I always see them and say "bLECK!", my friend has them and they look absolutely ridiculous on his short feet! But I bit my tongue and ate my words when I actually tried them on the other day...like clouds!! But do they get really hot? Or do the holes keep them cool?
I wouldnt wear them myself...comfort or not..I would feel like the 80's revisited. HELP! ITS THE RETURN OF THE JELLYS. Sorry but that is what they remind me of, either that or if there was a Netherlands pavillion at EPCOT they would fit right into the whole tulips and wooden shoe theme.
