Will it spoil? Does it worth that kind of $ I have a pair of slippers which my friend brought from Bangkok too sell last time and it cost me only $10 & i feel pretty comfy in it and it's made of similiar material of the croc. Anyway, crocs are not exceptionally comfy or nice and afterall it's just a pair of slippers. With that price, I could get another pair of nice shoes.

    Anyway, just my 2 cents worth.
    actuali, this is the price that u pay for item that buy in spore... look at the price of those branded slippers...or nike, addidas , teva etc....

    No problem. It not only was dangerous for the victim but also the people behind them all the way to the back cos there was a commotion and others had to "hentakaki" and do "jump on the escalator" exercise to prevent crowding at the accident area... Quite dangerous...

    Original also same what....
    "On Saturday, two-year-old Chong Shiyr’s right big toe was ripped off in a Singapore mall after her rubber clog — an imitation of a Croc shoe — got stuck between the escalator gap and the side wall. Her toe was found nearly three hours later but could not be reattached as it was too badly damaged."

    crocs are actually designed for use on boats
    my whole family has a pair each

    light, comfy, non slip (try it)
