You read it here first: “Crocs™ will kill you” meme goes national

badcrocs… 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.

OK, so I was a couple of months early but now the AP has taken it national:

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.

Coming up next: Crocs helps FaceBook destroy the economy.

  1. But they’re so expensive too!

    I find them uncomfortable to wear, but then I have nearly perfectly flat feet. CD Jr. loves ’em. Which is why we buy him the inexpensive knock-offs.
