Nite Ize Crocs o-dial Case for iPhone - accessory review [Contest]

The Nite Ize Crocs o-dial Case for iPhone is the case for Croc-lovers and if that's you it just might be the best thing you've ever seen. If you are way past the Croc wave, however, then this may look more like an accessory abortion. Either way, pro or con, this case is going to be so divisive that I just had to review -- and see it in person. Epic or train wreck? Follow on after the break to find out!

The Nite Ize Crocs o-dial case for iPhone looks like small replicas of Crocs, the foam clogs originally designed for the Quebec spa scene but that have since become popular worldwide. They look so much like the shoes I wonder if they are just small child's Crocs that someone added a belt clip to. :)

They come with a lanyard and a accessory sleeve so you can put some cash in with your iPhone. What they don't come with is anything is the way of port or button cutouts aside from the patterned "croc" holes. That means you have to treat the Crocs o-dial like a pouch and take your iPhone out if you want to use it for anything.

The Nite Ize Crocs o-dial Case for iPhone is available now from the TiPb iPhone accessory store.


This seems to be the perfect novelty/gag gift for the tech geek or croc lover in your life. If you have a friend who loves their iPhone get them this case and then take a picture or video of them opening the gift. I would love to see someones reaction to this case! You may make -- or lose -- a friend for life. Either way it'll be funny.

Post a link to the picture or video in the comments below and we'll pick a winner and send them the case of their choice from the TiPb iPhone accessory store.

It's really cute but I wouldn't pay that much for it. Especially if it's as hard to get the phone in and out of (as it looks).

HAHA Thats awesome. That crocks case is cool, but wanna escape the "plain black" and still be Flashy but Classy?

Dpdecuir says:

Originally made for iPhone 3G or 3GS it was designed for keeping the phone facing toward the inside and apple logo facing out. I had on ip until yesterday when the hot Louisiana sun destroyed it. I used it a lot. It is very durable and functional at a pouch to stay on your belt and hold the phone. I have dropped it with the phone in it many many times and never had a broken phone. I loved this case and really would like another one. I had a red and black one and got it for 5 bucks from AT&T about 1.5 or 2 years ago.
