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.

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®.
