Crocs O-Dial Updates The Shoe Phone
Crocs, those clunky and colorful clogs that exploded onto the scene a few years back and imploded just as quickly, have come out with a new way to stick your finger in fashion's eye: the O-Dial.
This variation on the Croc shoe holds your cell phone, music player, digital camera or similar such device. O-Dial, from Crocs. Get it? Croc... O-Dial. Get it?? OK, enough already. If you can get by the cutesy name, you just might want to get the O-Dial for its own merits, which include:
Removable belt clip
Swivel "heel strap" that adjusts to different-sized devices
Hidden pocket for phone cards, ID, receipts etc.
Lanyard (optional) for wearing around the neck
Accommodates Jibbitz (sold separately) for personalization
Japanese online retailer Rakuten is now offering the Crocs O-Dial (sorry, I love saying it) in 8 different colors & combos for 1,980 yen (about $20.50) each, plus shipping.
It does appear that 3 colors are sold out at the present time: CottonCandy/Celery (right), Fuchsia/Purple and Turquoise/Fuchsia. Oww, my eye!
