Co-founded in 2002 by Lyndon “Duke” Hanson III (MBA’85), Crocs built its success on its distinctively-styled shoes mostly made of a patented resin. Shown above is the company’s Pearl Street store.

Here are the residents’ biggest fashion crimes:

1.  Outdoor clothing made by Patagonia and North Face

2.  Fanny packs (OK, strike one)

3.  UGG boots in summer and Crocs in spring

4.  Biking shorts (goes without saying, but does comfort count for anything?)

Notwithstanding these terrible sins, GQ notes Boulderites are extremely fit, forcing the conclusion that the citizens could win an award for looking the best naked.

“So Boulderites,” the style magazine concludes, “do your fellow citizens a favor. Next time you reach for the biking-shorts-and-sneakers as evening wear combo, just take it all off.”
