Europe could show way for clog maker Crocs’ revival

BERLIN, July 30 (Reuters) – The success of Crocs Inc
in Europe, where the U.S. shoemaker has focused on its
trademark colourful foam clogs rather than branching into other
products, proves the brand has a future despite difficulties at
home, its European head said.

Crocs, founded in Boulder, Colorado in 2002, quickly built a
cult following for its springy-soled clogs, selling more than
300 million pairs of shoes. It now runs 624 stores and has
expanded into accessories and more fashionable shoe styles.
