Confession: I noticed that Land's End had a new clunk that copies the Croc and didn't blog it for two weeks. Why? Because I'm not sure the shoes are "fashion." They're great for gardening. They're fun if you're at the beach and need to catch your own dinner. But the only runway where I've spotted them was during the Kent State Senior Fashion Show and, well, we all know the verdict on that. But then I noticed something fun. Not only is Land's End copying the Croc, but they're also selling the Croc, for $5 more, on their own website! Can anyone explain the appeal of these shoes, and also the odd business decision?
