I get made fun of all of the time by my friends for wearing Crocs.

I don’t care though, they’re comfortable and perfect for wearing while working dogs and so easy to clean.

It’s been a bit since I’ve worn Crocs in the lake, but I planned to this summer… turns out that may be an issue.

When I think of Crocs, “water shoes” is one of the first things that come to mind. I always wore them in the water at the lake and so did my kids when they were little.

The Crocs lawsuit has been trying to move forward for a while, and a judge finally gave the green light to move forward with the class action lawsuit.

Apparently, Crocs shrink, and they are shrinking from doing activities that they were marketed to us all for.

The lawsuit is led by Martha Valentine and Ruby Cornejo, from California. They have claimed that Crocs has been misleading customers about the shoes’ durability.

Here are the key points from the class action lawsuit filed against Crocs:

  • Failing to disclose: The lawsuit claims that Crocs did not disclose that their shoes which are marketed as all-weather footwear, were shrinking when exposed to water, sunlight, and heat.
  • Misrepresenting the product: The lawsuit also claims that Crocs’ advertising led people to believe that Crocs were the perfect shoe option for wet, hot, and sunny conditions. I mean, yea… that’s what I was led to believe.

So these accusations have legal claims of the following:

  • Fraudulent concealment
  • Fraud
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Breach of express and implied warranties

Since this isn’t a new lawsuit attempt, Crocs tried to have it dismissed twice because the lawsuit lacked specifics, according to them.

However, a Judge named Trina Thompson disagrees and has allowed the lawsuit to move forward.

The allegations do not provide the exact date and time of advertisement exposure. However, such level of exactness is not required. But the allegations are sufficiently particular to put the defendant on reasonable notice of alleged misconduct.

Now that the judge has ruled, the class action lawsuit is moving forward as Valentine, et al. v. Crocs Inc., Case No. 3:22-cv-07463, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

We will post an update once we know more!
