Ottawa - Makers of the extremely comfortable but hideous footwear "Crocs" have teamed up with Ugg, makers of the equally comfortable and loathsome boot. Dubbing this new hybrid shoe-boot as a "Crugg", the new fusion footwear combines the cushiony comfort of Crocs with the warmth and durability of Ugg boots. Using a polymer foam main sole fused with a sheepskin upper portion, the new Cruggs are predicted to prove as popular as both previous shoes combined.
Manufactured in the remote shoe region of Xangtzen, China, the new Cruggs will be produced in a variety of annoying and garish colours that allows customers to select a Crugg that most suits their lackadaisical, laceless lifestyle. Anticipation is high for the new Cruggs, with orders in the thousands having already been made by retail stores in North America and Europe where there is great demand for dowdy, lazy footwear.
Previously only ever worn in warmer weather, the new Cruggs will allow the Crocs company to expand their market share, as will Ugg, who typically only sold their footwear during winter months. The new combo shoe-boot or "shoot" as it is referred to by fashion stylists, will now cover all ends of the footwear spectrum. Crocs President Linda Harbrook is excited to launch the new shoot and predicts a huge success for Cruggs. "We really wanted to reach out to the lazy, unmotivated population who can't be bothered with doing up laces and would rather shove their foot into a tasteless, brightly coloured but warm shoe-boot they can wear to the office or cottage." Harbrook explained. "Cruggs are perfect for anyone who wears pyjama pants in public and needs to accessorize their unique fashion sense."
