The municipality in Dubai has responded to the controversy surrounding the Crocs rubber shoes, and confirmed they are here to stay.
Dubai Municipality stated that the latest incident surrounding the soft rubber shoes was an accident, and that the global company has not withdrawn their products from the market.
To warn parents about the potential dangers surrounding the soft rubber shoes, which leaves enough room for children’s toes to stick out, the boy’s mother Helen Wood has since launched an awareness campaign on Facebook.
“However, when Stanley lost his toe, we realised that we are not the only parents dealing with this and there have been several lawsuits against a famous company that produces these colourful, soft rubber sandals that kids love so much. I will go back to UK and launch an awareness campaign to caution all parents and save our little children from such a horrific injury,” she said.
