Crocs. You either love ‘em or hate ‘em. One thing you cannot do is ignore them. They stick out like a sore thumb. They have been voted the “ugliest shoes.” They are called a fashion don’t. And some even suggest that you are not actually supposed to wear them in public.
But, they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I have challenging feet. Finding shoes that fit is somewhat impossible. I have a wide foot. A very high arch. And narrow heels. Impossible. But then, a few years ago, I found crocs. The ugliest shoes on the planet. But they actually fit my Fred Flintstone feet. AND they were comfortable. So comfortable that they make the pain from my heel spurs bearable to non-existent. There is no way that I could have walked for 10 days around Disney World without my ugly crocs.
I actually do wear them in public. Because they are pretty much all I wear. All year. I wear them on errands. To the pool. Exercising. On vacations. And even to church. My kids wear them all the time. To school. In the creek. And they even wear “dressy” black Croc Mary Janes to church.
I love that they don’t smell. I love that if they get dirty, I can just throw them in the dishwasher. I love that they are so comfortable. So comfortable that I don’t care if I am the poster child for this fashion don’t.
But at least, I don’t wear mine with socks.
