Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CROX) today announced that it is partnering with Academy
Sports + Outdoors to host a free autograph session with Jase, Phil, Si and
Willie of Duck Commander at the Academy Sports + Outdoors store in Metairie,
Louisiana on Saturday, March 30. Crocs will be giving away a free pair of
shoes to the first 100 customers in line when the store opens at 8:00 a.m.,
and will also be awarding one lucky finalist with a brand new
Realtree®-wrapped Jeep Rubicon.

Academy Sports + Outdoors partnered with Crocs to register customers at the 16
new Academy stores opened throughout the southeast in 2012. Of those who
registered, three finalists were randomly selected and will be flown in to vie
for the Jeep. The finalists will each be given a key to see if it starts the
Jeep. The 2^nd and 3^rd place finalists will receive a $1,000 and $500 Academy
Sports + Outdoors gift card, respectively, along with a year’s supply of free
Crocs™ shoes.

To help celebrate, Academy and Crocs invited Duck Commander’s Jase, Phil, Si
and Willie to help with the giveaway and to sign autographs for local fans.
Autograph passes will be distributed to the first 500 customers in line one
hour prior to the event and will be limited to one autograph per customer.
During the event, fans will have the opportunity to stock up on Duck Commander
t-shirts, hats and more.

"We are excited to partner with Academy Sports + Outdoors for this one-of-a
kind event,” said Michael Martin, Crocs’ Director of Marketing for the
Americas. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our partnerships with
Academy Sports + Outdoors and Realtree®. The Duck Commander crew is the
perfect group to help us hand over the keys to this great Realtree®-wrapped
Jeep Rubicon to one very lucky Crocs™ footwear fan."

The Academy Sports + Outdoors store in Metairie, Louisiana is located at 8843
Veterans Memorial Blvd. Consumers can stop by between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
to participate in the free autograph session with the Duck Commander crew and
