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.
