LMAO I hate crocks!!
BG, I went on hols a few years ago and walked until my feet almost fell off. Tried to buy a pair of comfortable shoes but everything killed my cuts and blisters except for....crocs. I ended up wearing them for half a day and getting so embarrassed I stepped out of them, left them by a bar and walked away.
I took a photo, of course http://www.flickr.com/photos/joannecasey/5448632463/in/set-72157626061898944
HA HA! They are really awful!
Oh dear, oh dear, I see what you mean.
At least the UggCroc is stomping on Nickelback. One step at a time, my friends... progress!
BG, floral to add extra embarrassment.M, the shame has never left.JC, there's something positive in there!
Kinda hoped they could add Susan Boyle somewhere
Crocs, from Denver Crocolado, USA.Can't live with them, can't live without them.They are of course the tender-foot's equivalent of clogs.I am not ashamed to say that I love 'em. Even resole them when they wear out. Have climbed Mt Everest in them (we have a local variant of this landmark here), they had better grip and more cushioning than regular sneakers. Pair one retired years ago, pair two on their last legs (so they are at their most comfortable) and pair three are my combination walking, gardening, cycling footwear.The first time I saw them was on medical staff wearing them in theatre. I assumed that this was the latest in disposable surgical garb - but since then they have taken on more ubiquitous roles.
Paul, they are comfortable I give them that...but I happen to prefer pain to embarrassment :)
