Crocs, kids and escalators a bad combination?

At rail stations and shopping malls around the world, reports are popping up of people, particularly young children, getting their toes caught in escalators. The one common theme seems to be the clunky soft-soled clogs known by the name of the most popular brand, Crocs.
Four-year-old Rory McDermott got a Croc-clad foot caught in an escalator last month at a mall in northern Virginia. His mother managed to yank him free, but the nail on his big toe was almost completely ripped off, causing heavy bleeding.
They say these are comfortable shoes. Both of my grandkods have some, also their mother. Will have to check this out good.

Crocs sure are all the rage right now...guess because they are comfortable and cute. It surprises me though in my workplace that 18 mth. olds are even wearing them. That age has a hard enough time staying upright and tend to trip over the shoes and they are easily removed too. Parents should practice more caution. Good ole lace up keds are the best and I still like the traditional Stride Rite "walking shoes" that all of mine wore when little!
