Crocs have been around since 2003 when America discovered this incredibly comfortable footwear. Crocs shoes are made from a proprietary closed cell resin called "Crocslite." Crocslite material produces a line of shoes that are comfortable, lightweight and odor resistant. While the original designs of Crocs may not have won any style awards, they sure were a hit for boaters looking for an alternative to smelly lace up shoes. The Crocs retail store is located just outside of Lord & Taylor in the Westfield Annapolis Mall.
