The AP reports this week that Japan has petitioned the Colorado-based maker of Crocs, the plastic clog commonly associated with gardening, hipster parents, menopause, vegans, and just plain ol’ wankers, to rethink its shoe design.
“Japan has asked the maker of Crocs to look into changing the design of its footwear after complaints that children who have seen people wearing the colorful plastic clogs have injured their eyes.
The Trade Ministry has issued the warning after receiving 65 complaints about Crocs and similar products causing bleeding from the eyes as well as confusion and horror between June and November last year. Most of the cases involved small children.”
Similar complaints about the relentlessly fug shoe have also come out of Singapore and the U.S.*
*This story is only sorta true. Our apologies to our Croc-wearing friends out there, who will no longer be our friends once we find out that they’ve been wearing Crocs.
