What are Jibbitz?

The concept of Jibbitz was introduced by Sheri and Rich Schmelzer in 2005. The name "Jibbitz" is derived from the word "giblets," which are small pieces of meat or poultry. Jibbitz quickly became a trend, especially among children and teenagers, and they allowed Crocs wearers to express their interests and personalities through their shoes.
Jibbitz are small, decorative charms that are designed to be placed on the holes of Crocs shoes. Crocs, the popular footwear brand known for its comfortable and lightweight clogs, features multiple holes or perforations on the top surface of their shoes. These holes are originally intended to provide ventilation for the feet and allow for the attachment of accessories called Jibbitz.
Jibbitz are made of various materials, including rubber and plastic, and they come in a wide range of shapes, colors, and designs. They can represent almost anything, from letters and numbers to popular characters, animals, symbols, and more. People use Jibbitz to personalize their Crocs and add a touch of fun and individuality to their footwear.

It's important to note that the popularity of Jibbitz may vary over time, and newer shoe styles and trends may have emerged since my last update in September 2021.
