Crocs – a popular brand name, although I have absolutely no idea how they came to be so popular. They make the ugliest shoes I have ever had the misfortune of laying my eyes upon. I will give you some facts about Crocs and you can decide for yourself if you are really willing to support this fashion atrocity even if it beats everything else in terms of comfort and durability.
1. People who wear them often claim they are the most comfortable footwear in the history of shoes.
Well of course they are comfortable, and so are your bathroom slippers. You just don’t go parading in public wearing them, do you? I wonder how they come up with such bulbous and hideous designs that don’t go with anything fashionable. If you look closely you can actually see that the designs are a hybrid of bathroom slippers, hiking shoes and kids rubber booties.
2. They are supposedly odor resistant but who cares when they look like perforated cheese inspired by Tom and Jerry show.
Some people say Crocs make your feet stink but I have no hard evidence here so I am not commenting on that. Moreover, if you are wearing Crocs outside your room then trust me, odor is the least of your worries. Are they resistant to odor? Maybe, but you know what else it is resistant to? Hot girls. Yes, try wearing them on a blind date and you won’t have to bother leaving her your number.
3. They come in every colour you find in a candy store – Pink, orange, green and a lot worse.
They come in every colour imaginable and yet look bad with every piece of clothing ever created. These colours look good only on kids so why not just leave it for them instead of desperately screaming for social banishment?
4. They just last forever; I mean literally
Another big problem with Crocs is that they last too damn long. I mean, who wants to keep wearing the same thing over and over again? As if that wasn’t enough they went head and invented something called Crocs butter to restore the sheen to those gaping holes they call shoes.
I’ve never seen a brand get the compliments and rave reviews that Crocs shoes receive. So it would be unfair if I don’t mention some of the features
that make Crocs special for many.
These are made of 99.99% foam which softens and warms with your body heat. They are resistant to fungus and bacteria that causes foot odor and at the same time allow plenty of ventilation, thanks to the holes in it. But all these qualities about Crocs make ideal for garden work or other wet and messy conditions. So the next time you buy one of these, make sure you know exactly where to wear them without hitting the street like fashion sinners.
