Love 'em or hate 'em, they're everywhere! Crocs have taken tot toes by storm and are still growing and gaining popularity and not just in America. The Japanese are infatuated with the porous rubber shoes as are other cultures. The initial design suited gardeners and the like just fine but the business got sassy and added Mary Jane and ballet flat styles to the mix. Easy to slip on and keep clean, they can also be hazardous in certain situations. They are slippery when wet and they have been known to cause some trauma on an escalator or two. So tell us, are you a Crocs lovin' mom?
Summer's here and the time is right for lil ones to be dancing in the street. But before they get footloose, they've got to cover their feet and Tinseltown's tots and politikids are embracing two styles this season — laid back casual and dainty sophistication. Crocs are still tops for a number of kiddos with Leni Klum, Apple and Moses Martin and River Deary sporting the ubiquitous non-slip sandals that caused a stir when they first hit playgrounds two years ago. Lil girls looking to add some slip-on style to their wardrobes are shopping the ballet flats at Crewcuts. Sasha Obama boarded Air Force One in a pair and landed in Moscow in another, while Suri Cruise opted for a more wild style while attending the Australian theater.
>> IN THE LOOKING GLASS — While we still don't know which model graces the September 2008 cover of Vogue Paris, we do have what's rumored to be a peek inside: Raquel Zimmermann, snapped by Ryan McGinley. Everything seems copacetic — the photog, the model — until you get to the shot with Raquel wearing bright orange Crocs. Hmmm. [Gold Digger, Gold Digger]
Rocker mama Sheryl Crow couldn't have asked for a better looking stud to pal around with. Her main man Wyatt Crow is turning into quite a looker with chubby lil cheeks, knowing eyes, and sandy blond hair. If I didn't know any better, I'd think this little boy was a clone of his adoring mommy.
Not one to shy away from noteworthy causes, the mama dressed her tot in a tee that reads, "Save some green for me! Drive a Hybrid"! Paired with some colorful madras shorts and some sporty blue Cayman Crocs, this tyke looks ready to soak up the sun.
McCain: Obama Will Take Away Your Crocs
So to speak. In his Denver, CO, town hall meeting moments ago, Sen. John McCain, said that the trade policies of Sen. Barack Obama, will hurt the ability of Americans to sell to foreign markets those weird trendy plastic "Crocs." McCain said, "building barriers to Crocs or any American company's access to foreign markets will have a devastating effect on our economy and jobs, and the prosperity of American families."

I wish there was an ounce of me that thought Croc shoes were cool. I never quite succumbed to the Croc shoes mania that ensued a few years ago, but I did get a pair, just to fit in with those (my entire family) that had them. The people that do look adorable wearing Crocs are little kids, who would also look super-cute sporting one of these Croc cell-phone cases. SlashGear notes that these cases are set to be released in Europe on May 1. Colors will include black, silver, red, grape, fuchsia, celery, cotton candy, and turquoise and will cost around $15 each.
