Here's my problem with Crocs as an investment - it sells mostly one shoe.  I get it that there are variations, but it's really that one shoe.  That shoe was in and then it was out and then it was ironic in and now that's out but then it's in again.  It hit $70 in 2007, and didn't hit that again until 2021.  That's a lot of waiting around to recoup your investment.  I don't see the point in owning a stock so heavily dependent on fashion, which is the most fickle of all human endeavors.

Yes, I realize that you wear crocs because they're so comfy and you don't care how you look, but teenagers will wear broken glass on their feet if it's in fashion.  Crocs won't be in fashion with them forever.

Ironically enough - I find the dollar-store knock-offs more comfortable than the bonafide brand-name Crocs I own.
They're really just comfy slippers that you can wear outside (if you're not concerned with appearances).

I wear Crocs all the time. They don't fade or need laces, and they're the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. Also, it's kind of hilarious to know that your fashion sense is being judged by cargo-shorted suburban dads wearing grass-stained New Balance tennis shoes.

I saw an ad recently for "business crocs". I thought it was a joke at first.

Everyone is wearing tennis shoes with a suit now.  This took off in the pandemic.

It's less a fashion thing now and much more of a medical worker thing now

I thought crocs were handy yard shoes until I accidentally kicked a dog turd.
Crocs are like the play-doh shape extruder for dog turds.

Thanks!

In between the toes dogsh*t must be an unforgettable experience. All that greasy stink just oozing into all the nooks and crannies.
