Crocs' o-dial: store your mobile in 'style'

Dubbed, cunningly, Crocs o-dial, the ‘shoe’ is described as a universal-size mobile device case, but a more accurate name might be rubber phone holder with holes in.

We shouldn’t laugh though, because the o-dial have a patent pending design called an adjustable clip that lets you, well, clip it onto things, like your belt. For any tech nerd, this is sure to be a positive point, because it’ll turn any mundane belt into more of a tactical pants retainer.

Croc's o-dial has an inner surface designed to protect your mobile’s display, such as from scratches. An... ahem... "internal accessory sleeve” gives you room to store a credit card, map to Glastonbury, or ticket for the next Star Wars fan convention.
