We Want Clear Crocs...We Want Clear Crocs...

I was browsing the forums at socknitters.com and came across a couple of threads where sock knitters are lamenting the lack of clear Crocs. I absolutely love Crocs. I don't wear animal products ( I don't eat 'em, why wear 'em?) and have had trouble finding non-leather footwear until Crocs, blessed Crocs, came along. They are comfy, stylish, and cruelty free.

Stylish? My mother calls them "fruit boots". My father says that even though no animals were harmed in the making of Crocs, they die laughing anyway when they see me wearing them. Who cares? Yes, they ARE stylish! I love Crocs, and wear them proudly!

My point is this, could Crocs be convinced to make them in clear? I have a pair of clear clogs made by Sloggers, bought online from Knitters Dream, but they don't have air vents like Crocs. The Sloggers are perfect for me in winter, as my feet are always cold, but I think I'd rather have vents for summer, or my feet would get hot and sweaty and we don't want to go there.

Today, I emailed Crocs and asked if they have any plans to make clear ones - if we all do it, maybe they will be overwhelmed and will consider it! This is the link to the Crocs website and this will take you directly to their contact form . They also have a toll free number: 1-866-306-3179. Let's inundate them with requests from socially conscious sock knitters!

As if you would need any encouragement, everyone who contacts Crocs and leaves me a comment telling me so, will be entered to a special prize drawing. I'll draw one name at random and that person will get said "special prize", yet to be determined. It will have something to do with knitting, though, and probably sock knitting.

To recap, here are the rules:

1) Contact Crocs using this contact form , or by calling their toll-free number: 1-866-306-3179 and politely ask if they have any plans to offer Crocs in clear, as the demand would be great indeed from sock knitters all over the world, and anyone else who paints their toenails and wants to show them off.

2) Leave me a comment letting me know you have contacted them (no proof is needed - knitters are an honorable bunch and if you say you did it, I believe you!)

3) I will draw a winner from the names of everyone who has contacted Crocs by, let's say, noon on May 1st, and that person will receive a special, special prize. I'll post the name of the winner, and my email address so you can email me your mailing address.

Sound good? OK, go to it! Everybody repeat after me...We Want Clear Crocs...We Want Clear Crocs...

I'm first I'm first! Here's the text I got after sending a comment: Thanks for your comments. Crocs will respond within two business days. That would be so cool!

I sent them an email. I let them know that knitters would buy clear crocs by the boatload. If all of us mention we are knitters then they will see how big the knitting internet community is!

I just sent off my love letter to the Crocs people. I lovelovelove Crocs and have worn them for 3-4 years now. Although I am not a sock knitter (at least not yet), I think clear crocs would be a superb idea. Thanks for your suggestion. I will also put the info on my blog as well.

Yay, I'm fourth! I found your blog off of Grumperina's Jaywalker gallery. I sent off an email to Crocs, I've never worn a pair, but totally would buy them if they had clear and I could show off my sock creations :)

I contacted them because I really want to have clear Crocs. I don't have any Crocs yet but as soon as they make clear ones I'm going to buy my first pair to wear with my socks.

I asked about clear Crocs couple days ago from Finnish importer but they didn't undestand me at all, I hope manufacturer do.
