Crocs to Launch Foam Resin Clothing Line

The Daily Mail is reporting that Crocs, the makers of the stupendously ugly and comfortable foam resin sandals, intend on launching a clothing line using a “relaxed” version of the same material. Despite myself, I am intrigued.

[Snobs] can, however, take some comfort from the fact that the shoes are not actually made of rubber (so no rubber t-shirts), but are rather manufactured using a trademark material called Croslite – a soft spongy foam resin. … The resin will be blended with natural fibres such as cotton to create a breathable, sweat-resistant substance for outdoor activity.
A Crocs spokeswoman said: “We’ve been able to take the same material and spin it into a yarn so it has all the properties of the shoes – light, durable and breathable.”

    Cool! And when you go out in the sun, your shirt will shrink and cut off your circulation!
