I have never owned a pair of Crocs and have always found it really surprising that they were so popular.
However as someone who followed the stock I was impressed that Crocs was able to weather the COVID-19 pandemic better than many other companies due to its strong e-commerce presence and its focus on comfortable and casual footwear, which has been in high demand as more people work from home.
In terms of brand partnerships do you know if there are any notable ones in the horizon ?
What an odd expression—"planned newness." Anyway, I applaud $CROX's strong performance to date and I envy shareholders. This is a stock I looked at and passed on. That was a mistake on my part, but it's tough for me to wrap my head around anticipated sales growth for something like footwear. This being fashion, trend/taste/style are so fickle! These days, with social media and everybody being an influencer and trendsetter, these things change more rapidly than at any point in history.
