File this under WTF.
Crocs Inc. co-founder, George Brian Boedecker Jr., was popped for a DUI in Boulder, Colorado on Saturday after passing out in in his Porshe and apparently it's all Taylor Swift's fault.
When the cops arrived on scene
They're getting it!
Instead of spending hours on new ways to sell classic rubber clog, the team behind Crocs shoe realized variety in business is key.
Thanks to their new thinking, the numbers have seen a dramatic increase. In fact, 54% of current sales come from the new line of wedges, flats, and peep-toes.
CEO John McCarvel said of the epiphany:
"Our main focus today is getting new customers to understand that we're no longer just a clog. I think this is our biggest challenge as a brand today - getting people to take a look at us in a different way. We had to innovate our way out of the situation we had put ourselves in."
And that they did!
As we've previously discussed, Crocs is no longer falling down a bankrupt black hole and if business keeps going the way it is, it's going to be a while before they ever have to worry about that again!
Take a look at some of their new styles (below)! What do U think??

We were pleasantly surprised when Crocs hit its $1 billion mark, and we're happy to report the super light shoes are continuing their rise in sales.
So they're looking forward with an upbeat approach in their business tactics.
Crocs President and CEO John McCarvel explains:
The first quarter will be an investment quarter as the company continues to close underperforming kiosks and enter large retailers.
Actions such as taking distributors in-house, creating license agreements and geographic expansion are beginning to turn Crocs into a legitimate brand.
We are developing seasonally appropriate products including a broader line of sneakers and boots that will allow us to stay relevant. Early feedback on the line, coupled with early pre-books, indicates we’re making good progress.
Always important to adapt!! Very important to add in some variety too!!

The rubbery, heavenly-feeling shoe company will hit the one billion dollar mark by their tenth birthday.
While some lovers of Crocs grew fearful when the company underwent a massive sell-off last October, but things are looking up!
John McCarvel, Crocs president and CEO, said in a statement:
High heels are the one of the only things girls love to hate.
You love them because they're sexy, but at the same time you hate them because they hurt like a mother.
