Swedish Hospital Seeks to Ban Croc Shoes

Putting their best foot forward stops some hospital workers in their tracks.

A hospital in Sweden wants to ban the popular Crocs Clogs claiming that the slip on shoes create too much static electricity.

That static is blamed for knocking out medical equipment, like respirators.

The hospital cites at least three incidents.

A spokesperson for US based Crocs Inc. says a number of factors contribute to static electricity buildup and doubts that the company's shoe is the sole factor.
