Escalators hate Crocs, too

Crocs, the ugly ass rubber clog that kids (and alas, some adults) seem to love, are apparently causing more harm than just making you look like you have clown feet:

WASHINGTON – At rail stations and shopping malls around the world, reports are popping up of people, particularly young children, getting their toes caught in escalators. The one common theme seems to be the clunky soft-soled clogs known by the name of the most popular brand, Crocs.

One of the nation’s largest subway systems — the Washington Metro — has even posted ads warning riders about wearing such shoes on its moving stairways. The ads feature a photo of a crocodile, though they don’t mention Crocs by name.

  • Yikes. I’m afraid of escalators on a good day, this will definitely make any public places a no-croc zone for us.

    Crocs cause car accidents, too! My daughter was in a serious crash last year because her croc got caught between the gas pedal and the floor and she was unable to stop for a red light. She is a health professional and was wearing them for comfort. Needless to say, she has returned to wearing athletic shoes! DO NOT DRIVE IN CROCS!

  • Hi, just wandered by. I have a Crocs website. Lots of information out there. Not quite what i was looking for, but great site. Take care.
