This time last year I remember having a serious conversation with my wife regarding our plan if we can’t find toilet paper. While we did in fact come up with a solution, luckily her Mom sent us a care package of toilet paper she had found. We eventually found some at Kroger but it was a little scary leading up to that day. Five years ago, if someone had told me toilet paper would be next to impossible to find for at least a month I wouldn’t have believed them. Five years ago if someone had told me Crocs sales will be up 64% three months into 2021 I would’ve laughed in their face. Turns out that’s EXACTLY what’s going on right now and the only person that’s laughing are the Crocs people as they deposit that money.
According to CNN, the reason for the spike in Crocs sales is because people are choosing the comfortable shoes over the more attractive shoes. And right now it seems as if walking in Crocs is like walking on clouds. It of course helps that celebrities like Post Malone and Justin Bieber have endorsed and created their own style of Crocs. I know a lot of people that have Crocs. Even my nieces have had multiple pair since before they could even walk. Five years ago you could never convince me to even kind of slip one of these on. Now, well a new shoe for around the house would be nice. Maybe a grocery shopping shoe also. Ok, I’ll only wear them to work on Fridays…and maybe a Wednesday every now and then.
