Kelly crocks Crocs

Yahoo! carries a news item today that Hollywood beauty Kelly Preston (right) is horrified by the recent trend for colourful Crocs shoes and can't wait to the public to tire of the plastic footwear. It reports:
"The shoes were tipped as the next big thing in fashion last year, but the footwear has only grown in popularity in 2007.

Celebrities including ... U.S. President George W. Bush have been spotted wearing the American-made shoes, which were originally designed for boaters.

Preston tells the New York Daily News, "I cannot deal with those Crocs sandals. They're comfy but no thank you! I'm happy to see that trend on its way out."
The IPKat says, there's no way of guarding against the sort of brand damage that can be inflicted through comments of this nature - which must be very frustrating for those who spend their time and effort trying to make their brands appeal to consumers. Merpel adds, if endorsement by George W. Bush didn't kill the brand it's unlikely that Ms Preston's comments will kill it off either.

  1. "Celebrities including... US President George W Bush"? Glad Yahoo made clear that a) George W Bush is a "celebrity" rather than a serious politican and that b) it wasn't the celebrity car-washer of Sydney, George W Bush!

    Honestly, is "celebrity" the best description of a US President? Is Gordon Brown first a celebrity?

  2. I don't think that my two small daughters give a hoot about Kelly Preston's opinion......

  3. appeal to consumers??? Be seriuos, those shoes are simply ugly!


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
