The shares rose 8.5% to $149.38 in New York trading. The stock has advanced almost 140% in 2021.

The company has seen its sales and stock skyrocket since the start of the pandemic, powered in part by high-profile collaborations with celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Bad Bunny. The distinctive plastic shoes have also been buoyed by the trend toward comfortable, at-home footwear even as the overall category posted a decline in the last year. They’re also popular with health-care workers who work long hours standing up.

The Niwot, Colorado-based clog maker is also boosting its share repurchase programme.

Chief executive officer Andrew Rees said that to combat manufacturing issues in Vietnam, the company has moved some of its production to other parts of the world and is using air freight to move product. This more-expensive mode of transport is gaining popularity in the world of apparel as shipping and port bottlenecks persist and hinder companies’ efforts to keep their stores stocked amid rising demand. Crocs joins peers such as Adidas AG and Lululemon Athletica Inc. in boosting its use of air freight.
