Crocs shoes face bankruptcy

Crocs face bankruptcy! They sold over 100 million pairs of their practical, stylish yet affordable shoes to George W Bush, Steven Tyler and my overweight aunt amongst others, so where did it all go wrong? One bright note: boxed, early models are already selling on Ebay for big money.

For those who want the sex without the pain, there's always some rather delightfully erotic socks.
