Crocs launches Ocean Minded brand in Europe

Just as Crocs celebrates its ten years in Europe later this month with events in a number of cities, the American group is also bringing one of its brands to Europe for the first time: Ocean Minded. They’re a far cry from the iconic Crocs model, even if comfort is still the number one priority.

Ocean Minded specialises in light shoes specifically designed, as the name suggests, for the beach. The brand, which was founded in 1966, makes flip-flops as well as light shoes which dry very quickly, and is also ecologically-minded, with its uppers made out of recycled materials.

This spring-summer season’s 16 models are only available at the online Crocs store, with men’s 39 – 48 and women’s 34 – 43 on sale for around 60 euros. In the United States, the brand has its own online retail site and also offers a line of t-shirts. The launch of Ocean Minded is part of Crocs’ strategy to diversify its product range.

The group’s sales in Europe dropped by 2.7% in the first quarter of the 2012 financial year, ended 31st March, compared to the same period a year earlier, due to the economic crisis.
