With whom has Crocs collaborated in the past?
They have collaborated with Post Malone and Grateful Dead which were also sold out within an hour. The pair was sold for $64.99 in retail. They were also found on the resale site for $265. People opened the website on various devices at a time to get their hold on the shoes. Danny Morales is one of them. He said although he was active on many devices, the product was unavailable on all of them. People were shocked at how quickly the sale had ended. They recently also collaborated with Kentucky Fried Chicken. That collection also got sold out in half an hour. Fans were waiting in a virtual line but it was a quick sell-out.
When collections as rare as limited ones which are of collaborations are sold online, it is difficult to get one. Many footwear resellers tend to buy them earlier and then resell it after increasing its price. Many of them have also said that such events allow bots to buy the shoes. KFC went on to say that they were not going to release more of them which left the fans enraged. Founded by Lyndon Hanson and George Boedecker Jr., Crocs has been dominating the US market. To date, they have sold more than 300 million pairs. The footwear company started receiving attention in 2015. They branded themselves ultra-hip in the fashion industry. Once, Crocs were involved in the list of worst things to happen to mankind. They reconstructed themselves and now they are a success.
