Waikoloa Beach Resort, Hawai‘i Island—Since 2002, toes of the world have enjoyed the colorful “amphibious footwear” of Crocs™. Originally created as easy-care boat shoes for wet or dry conditions, Crocs™ work well in the Hawai‘i Island environment, and will soon be available at Queens’ MarketPlace in Waikoloa Beach Resort.
Branching off creatively from the iconic clog design, Crocs™ has stepped into the workplace, golf course, fashion scene and classroom with over 300 styles for men, women and children, including sandals, sneakers and heels. Available in 90+ different countries, the brand has topped $1 billion in annual sales and continues to expand its markets.
Sharing in that success, Crocs™ proves it is a company with a conscience through its “Crocs Cares℠” program, which has donated more than three million pairs of shoes to communities in need in more than 40 countries around the world. By partnering with a variety of global non-profit organizations to help ship and distribute shoes to those in need, Crocs Cares℠ works to help protect the foot from infections and diseases that rob the body of vital nutrients. And, with the Soles4Souls Foundation, the company also recycles gently used Crocs™ to toes in need around the world.
“Crocs™ are great shoes for Hawai‘i, and a perfect fit for Queens’ MarketPlace,” said Sales and Operations Manager, Margo Mau Bunnell. “They are very comfortable and offer a wide range of styles that fit any lifestyle for children and adults—from fun, colorful and casual, to classy fashion for work or a special night out. With a full selection available right here on the Kohala Coast, Crocs™ will be the place to shop.”
Since it opened in 2007, Queens’ MarketPlace in Waikoloa Beach Resort has earned a reputation among visitors and kama‘āina as “the gathering place of the Kohala Coast,” full of shopping opportunities, services and great food, along with entertainment and arts programs, movies under the stars and large-scale concerts in Waikoloa Bowl at Queens’ Gardens.
