You Can Now Buy Rear Spoilers And Flaming Exhausts For Your Crocs

You Can Now Buy Rear Spoilers And Flaming Exhausts For Your Crocs

Wearing Crocs already makes you a style king or queen, however what if there was a way to make them just a little spicier.

The previously unfashionable footwear came out with a range of clip-on accessories called Jibbitz to take your shoe game up a notch.

However, if you really want to wow the hell out of passersby on the street then you can always get a rear spoiler or even a flaming exhaust attached.

The Prusa 3D printing repository has a cheeky blueprint so let you start whipping these bad boys up at home.

The design allows the rear spoiler to clip into the heel strap and you'll be flying past your friends with such aerodynamics that you'll be a speed demon.

The only negative would be potentially having the plastic rub up against the back of your foot the whole time.

But when you look ready to race Vin Diesel in the first Fast and the Furious movie, who cares about heel blisters.

If you don't have a 3D printer at home, then fear not.

People have started selling the rear spoilers and other hilarious Croc attachments on retailer sites like Etsy.

You can find a turbo attachment to sit on the front of your shoe to really complete the look, as well as a rear wing and an exhaust tip.

While you might think these are stupid (and you could potentially be right) Crocs are making a big comeback from when they were much maligned.

Sale for the first quarter of the year were huge and helped by big celebrity collaborations.

Compared to the same quarter last year, sales for Crocs skyrocketed 64 per cent to $460 million in the first three months of 2021. According to the BBC, pre-tax profit also grew to $122.5 million between January and March from a previous $18.7 million.

Crocs' chief executive, Andrew Rees, is hoping sales for the full year to be as much as 50 per cent higher than last year.

The company predicted back in February that the total sales would be around 25 per cent, so these new quarterly figures show the shoe is making a huge comeback.

"The pandemic has allowed us to reach new customers, but I think consumers are also focused on what we can offer them in the future," Mr Rees told CNBC.

"Sandals is a large product category and the accessible market for us around sandals is about $30 billion globally."
