Crocs is an American shoe manufacturer that produces and distributes casual unisex shoes, and specialises in clog designs. Crocs shoes are made with a patented closed cell foam resin, known as Croslite, which offers great comfort and support to a wearer's feet, and supposedly offers various medical benefits. Because of this, Crocs became a popular brand, despite criticisms that its clog designs were clunky, unfashionable, and ugly.

Originally designed as a clog to be worn indoors, the patented foam resin material Crocs is made from was also discovered to be resistant to water, sand, mud, and dirt. Thus, Crocs footwear also functions well outdoors, and today, most people use their Crocs as an outdoor, rather than indoor, footwear. Designs for Crocs usually come in many colours, with their classic clogs available in over 10 colours, and most other footwear designs available in a range of 4 to 6 colours or dual colour combinations.

Crocs has also tried to increase the fashion appeal of its footwear, by marketing various accessories that clip on to the ventilation holes in their shoes. This appeals mostly to children and ladies. A known safety hazard of Crocs shoes is children who are wearing a pair of Crocs and standing near the side of an escalator. There is an increased risk of the Crocs getting caught in the escalator due to the small size of their feet and the soft material of the shoes.

Prices for a pair of Crocs are expensive, with men's footwear costing slightly more than women's footwear. A pair for men costs around SGD $40 - $150, while a pair for ladies costs around SGD $30 - $100. A pair of Crocs is rather durable, with a life span of around 12 - 24 months. While I find their clog designs to be comfotable and great to wear, I experienced friction burn / chafing of my ankle with their covered sneakers, and thus, I won't recommend it.
