Well let us take you down memory lane

Crocs was founded by Scott Seamans, Lyndon “Duke” Hanson and George Boedecker Jr.

The three men aimed to produce and distribute a foam boat shoe

whose design they acquired from Foam Creations, Inc. of Quebec City.

While Seamans loved that the shoes were comfortable, had a slip resistance and they could float,

Hanson and Boedecker on the other hand disliked the design, but eventually they decided that the shoe was useful.

The first Crocs model produced was called “the Beach”, which was unveiled in 2001

at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in Florida, and the 200 pairs that they had produced were all sold.
