Love them or hate them, Crocs are having a moment. Those rubbery shoes made their first appearance on the Fashion Week runways back in September and they’ve been gaining popularity since.
And get this - according to resale website thredUP, used Crocs are one of their hottest items of the season - selling quicker than more trendy brands like Free People and Anthropologie. The numbers from thredUP show that Crocs are selling 58% faster than any other product they sell! And almost all (97%) of them are bought within three months of being posted.
The average cost of the used footwear is $11, and since they only cost $35 new, the trend is a little surprising. Even thredUP’s head of marketing communications, Karen Clark, is puzzled by it. “We were surprised to see Crocs so high on the list," she explains. "For brands with that high a sell-through rate, it's almost impossible to find them on the site."
So if you have some old Crocs collecting dust in the back of your closet, cash in while you can. Or you could keep them and sport this highly sought after footwear you had long since stopped wearing.
