Are you feeling comfortable? The team at Crocs™ wanted to know and commissioned a national survey. What did they find out? More than half (52-percent) of women frequently sacrifice comfort for fashion when it comes to footwear. 42-percent of working Americans are not completely comfortable with the clothing that they wear to work. The top three comfortable shoes according to women: sneakers other than running shoes (36-percent), flip-flops or sandals (28-percent) and flats (19-percent). I’m not surprised to see that 65% of respondents wanted a comfort holiday. Crocs™ is happy to oblige and has declared September 28th International Comfort Day!
So how can you celebrate? Crocs™ wants you to “Try on a Pair” for a 20% discount. They’ll also be giving 50 people retweeting to a friend with the #getcomfy hashtag a pair of free Crocs shoes and a comfort food recipe from Chef Mario Batali. Crocs Cares℠ will donate 15,000 pairs of Crocs™ shoes to help spread some comfort to individuals in need. International Comfort Day will be celebrated globally at Crocs retail stores in the Americas, EU and Asia.
You can start feeling the comfort immediately with Crocs™. That’s because each pair features Croslite™ material. Yep-it’s totally inside every super adorable pair of sneakers, boots or wedges Crocs™ sells.
