Croc the Vote
I live in a city, so I walk a lot–at least two miles a day, just in my daily commute, if the weather’s nice. I usually go to the office in a pair of flip-flops or flats and change into heels I stash under my desk at work. Being that I spend the bulk of my day sitting at a desk, this is really not much of an issue, but I’ve had many jobs which required me to be on my feet for eight hours a day. I completely understand the appeal of comfortable footwear.
But, I have to ask–what is the deal with Crocs? Are they really comfortable enough for you to be seen in public wearing these?
My mother, who I love dearly, has a pair of pink ones with some kind of…fake fur effect. My sister and I have made it known, frequently, that it is not okay for her to wear them out in public. Since she largely ignores this, we have since revised the rule to at least restrict her wearing them in our presence in public. This also does not really work, but you can’t say we didn’t try.
This being said, I confess I have never worn a pair of these things. Furthermore, some of the new styles are actually…kind of…cute. There, I said it. Here are a couple of pairs I would actually wear. In public.
What do you guys think? Would you wear Crocs? Do you wear Crocs and now I’ve made you outraged?
