I talked with Gary Ward the other day about how life has changed since publicly-traded Crocs, Inc. bought his sandal company, Ocean Minded, earlier this year.
Let's just say Gary is loving the extra financial backing, distribution and production support. Crocs has a market cap of $3.7 billion.
For the upcoming trade shows, Ocean Minded will expand into soft bags for men and women made with organic fabrics.
