The Potential Danger of Crocs Shoes

Some would say they're a little ugly with all those holes, but millions are wearing Crocs for work or play, and now the number of injuries are climbing as well.

Particularly when the soft soled shoes are getting toes stuck in escalators. In fact, one of the nation's largest subway systems, the Washington Metro, has posted ads warning riders about wearing these types of shoes on its escalators.  

Most of the reports of injuries have involved young children, including a boy from Virginia who lost the nail on his big toe when his Croc got stuck in an escalator.
