Crocs is now directly managing the distribution of its shoe collections in Portugal and Slovakia. Before, Crocs had been selling its product line in these countries by means of a distributor. At the moment, Crocs manages the distribution of its products directly in altogether 15 countries. In the future, the company will be envisaging the inclusion of more countries into the direct distribution model. In presenting some original new styles in a showroom in Berlin during the Bread & Butter fair last week, Crocs said its new collections will be more fashion-oriented in order to segment the market and to open up new distribution channels.
