First MoviePass, and now Crocs? Nothing is sacred.
In a press release, Crocs Inc. announced that it will be closing all of its remaining manufacturing facilities. Additionally, its executive vice president and chief financial officer, Carrie Teffner, will leave on April 1, 2019.
The company has already started wrapping things up in one of its facilities in Mexico, and they plan on shutting down the remaining in Italy. At the moment, there are no plans to create a new site for production. Though the company said they “aren’t going anywhere,” they did not explain where and how its shoes would be manufactured.
FALSE ALARM: We aren’t going anywhere 😎

Where are people going to get their Croc Heels? How will models work the runway without Balenciaga’s Croc Platforms? Who knows, but today is a sad day indeed for fashion, and the people who unironically love Crocs.
Croc stans took to Twitter to express their outrage, betrayal, and sadness about the Croc-pocalypse.

On the other hand, Twitter users were happy and relived that this shoe may finally meet its end.

I bought crocs, wore them in public a few times one summer, they were comfortable, but not worth the embarrassment. I let the dog eat them, he only half chewed one, even he had his dignity.

Other users are planning to take advantage and stock up on this possibly soon-to-be limited resource.
