Love them or hate them, they're everywhere.

We're talking about Crocs. The company which import Crocs into New Zealand says they're struggling to keep up with demand.

This month has been dubbed CROC-tober, marking 20 years since the popular and controversial rubber footwear were launched at a Boatshow in Florida.
