When Crocs™ are outlawed only outlaws will wear absurdly expensive & brightly colored soft plastic footwear

crocsPittsburgh’s Mercy Hospital has banned the hideous-yet-trendy footwear. I think the “Crocs pose a health hazard” meme is about to take off. During a layover in DC on Saturday I watched a promo for one of the local news shows about how wearing the shoes on escalators is a danger. Allegedly the material the shoes are made of is so soft that the metal teeth chew into them. Here’s the headline: Escalators eat Crocs.

We’re entering the very slow news days so I expect this one to be everywhere there are bored reporters, empty news holes and pictures of cute kids riding escalators.

If it is, then the folks at IHateCrocs will make a wind fall (picture is from their on-line store). Also, I came across a nice little description of the Crocs phenom at a blog called Late Night Business Notes. The rest of the blog is pretty good, too.
