Crocs reported that sales surged in its first quarter

There's no conclusion in sight for the continuous love affair between Crocs, the maker of the often-mocked foam clog, and comfort-seeking consumers. On Tuesday, Crocs detailed that sales surged 64% in its first quarter, to $460 million.

The company also raised its 2021 sales estimate, saying it now anticipates income for the year to extend between 40% and 50%, up from its past direction of a 20% to 25% increase. Investors cheered the news, boosting Crocs (CROX) shares up over 16% to $98.98 on the Nasdaq.

Crocs' bittersweet moment arrived in the midst of a worldwide pandemic when the shoemaker logged its best deals ever in 2020. The clog, priced at $30 to $50 a pair and derided by many as ugly, got to be a go-to source of comfort for buyers who paired the shoe with everything from nightwear to fancy clothing.

This past Sunday, musician Questlove was pictured wearing a combination of custom gold Crocs at the Oscars. A couple of collaborations, as well, have helped offer millennial and TikTok-loving Gen Z'ers on the clogs. The brand frequently teams up with a number of artists and brands, including Post Malone, Justin Bieber, and fast-food chain KFC, on special edition collections.
