Crocs, Inc. is an American company based in Niwot, Colorado that manufactures and markets the Crocs brand of foam clogs.The company has since established a considerable following with American middle school and high school students, with many opting for Crocs to use as school shoes for the school day.
Crocs was founded by Lyndon “Duke” Hanson, and George Boedecker Jr. to produce and distribute a foam clog, the design of which was acquired from a company called Foam Creations. 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 sold out the 200 pairs produced at that time. It has since sold 300 million pairs of shoes.
