SEATTLE, Washington – Corvette owners and fans around the country had their mouse pointers ready as Crocs released a Limited Edition pair of “Jake” Crocs. The new shoe, exclusive to the Crocs online store, sold 100,000 units in less than a minute. “Well I got on the internet box and fired up the world wide web to buy me a pair. Guess I was too slow because the site went down. Its a real shame too, them shoes would go great with my C5 and slip off easily ’cause you never wear shoes in a Vette.” remarked would-be customer Dale Pennant of Squamash, WA.
Crocs has said that the overwhelming success of the shoe is most likely due to the huge crossover appeal between the Corvette and Crocs customer base. No word on whether more will be released.
