Crocs and Escalators

Crocs (the footwear, not the amphibians) have been in my life a lot lately. My son just got some knockoffs (Croc-offs?), the station we do the kids' music radio show on is doing a fashion makeover contest themed on them, and now Above The Law has a post about the potential danger of the shoes on escalators. The Japanese government has apparently asked for a redesign to reduce the danger, and at least one suit has been filed based on injuries to a three-year-old hurt on escalator.
