One of, if not the most, controversial shoes of our age has arrived en masse on the Upper West Side. What you see before your eyes is an enormous, shiny new Crocs flagship! The store, located at 270 Columbus Ave between 72nd and 73rd Streets, is filled-to-bursting with all types of Crocs—a winter-ready version (the Mammoth) lined with synthetic fur, the traditional model (the Cayman and the Beach) in an array of bright hues, and their "stylish" new line. Downtowners hold tight, you'll get your own store soon enough.
