Colorado–based Crocs was founded in 2002 when it made a splash at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show with the debut of a foam clog. The shoe was made from a closed cell resin foam material called Croslite; the proprietary technology results in soft, lightweight and comfortable shoes that are odor–resistant and water–friendly. Today the brand is the favorite of children everywhere because they can comfortably run, jump, make mudpies and walk in the rain – the colorful shoes keep feet cool and let water and debris drain away. Products include classic clogs, Crocs Kid's Crocs Littles, charm clogs, glitter clogs and slide sandals; many pairs feature beloved characters such as Superman, Batman, Planes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Frozen, Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty. In addition to children's casual shoes and the four–season footwear line, the company offers coordinating backpacks and tote bags.
