Plastic clog maker Crocs has laid off 75 members of staff in Colorado, it has been reported.

The redundancies represent around 4% of the company's total US workforce, according to Associated Press Newswires.

Crocs did not return calls made by just-style this afternoon (11 August).

Last week the company saw its second quarter profits fall to $2.1m from $48.5m in 2007, amid tumbling domestic sales.
