Crocs, Inc. (stylized in all lowercase) is an American footwear company based in Broomfield, Colorado that manufactures and markets the Crocs brand of foam clogs.
Crocs was founded by Lyndon “Duke” Hanson, and George Boedecker Jr. to produce and distribute a foam clog, whose design they acquired from Foam Creations, Inc. of Quebec City. The shoe was originally developed as a boating shoe.
The first model produced by Crocs, the Beach, was unveiled in 2001 at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in Florida, and the 200 pairs that they had produced were all sold. Crocs has since sold 300 million pairs of shoes. In June 2020, Crocs moved the headquarters from Niwot, Colorado to Broomfield.
Crocs are made in a variety of styles and colors. The Classic styles are available in more than 20 colors; most other styles are produced in a palette of four to six colors or two-color combinations. Thus there are different styles for each season. A pair of adult Classic style Crocs normally cost $49.99.
Crocs also sells other fashion accessories. Jibbitz are decorations that can be clipped to the ventilation holes in the shoes. These include designs, mainly aimed at children, which mostly feature Disney characters. Jibbitz normally cost $4.99 for a single clip or $16.99 – $19.99 for multipacks. The company has also released a line of purses in a variety of colors.
