Anytime I see Crocs, they are usually on a balding, fat guy who doesn't have enough sense to buy a pair of shorts that weren't made in 1977.

I saw a couple the other day wearing matching Crocs. True love.

/yes, they were fat

As a parent with 2 small kids, I can say that crocs are awesome for them. They can put them on by themselves, they're easy to hose off when they get muddy, and they're cheap. I agree that adults wearing them look like douches, but they're great if you're under 10.

Well yeah, despite what Tom Cruise and Katie say, kids shouldn't be fashionistas, they should be comfortable and as goofy as they want. And even adult women can get away with it sort of. But if I see a grown man wearing them, I figure he's given up on life.

Crocs make the best pair of slippers I've ever owned. Normal slippers seem to last 3 months, these have lasted 2 years.

The name brand ones offer way better support for going to the mailbox (end of the block), but they don't really seem suitable for walking much farther than that, fashion sense aside...

If I see them wearing the standard day-glo color Crocs then yes....

But there are some stylish Crocs out there if you look hard enough.

/doesn't wear Crocs
//the wife does, but not the "standard" ones.

I have a pair that I wear to play in rivers and lakes, and on the beach or a boat. They're waterproof, easy to clean, and protect my feet from sharp objects. I also wear them on quick trips to the laundry room.

As someone who is 6' 4" and 300 pounds, I can't wait for someone to come up and tell me how I look in Crocs.

Go be fat somewhere else, tubby.

That's pretty much a spot-on classic ITG.

We have more than 10 pairs of Crocs on the porch right now.

They're great because they're easy for kids to put on and take off, easy for parents to clean, easy to mix and match (My kids sometimes like to wear two different shoes?)

I love my purple knock off crocs. (quarks)

To my shame I VERY briefly considered buying a pair of Crocs snow boots this winter.

I only considered them for a few seconds, but the drain on my soul made it feel like an eternity.

I did get two pairs for my baby boys. I consider them practice shoes.

The first part describes me to a "T". However, the only purpose Crocs have, for me, are as "beater shoes." Cheap, and I can wash them on a regular basis.

stewbert: Crocs make the best pair of slippers I've ever owned. Normal slippers seem to last 3 months, these have lasted 2 years.


This. They're not for wearing outside, they're basically slippers that won't disintegrate after three months of regular washing.

You'd think he could get it right half the time just by chance.

Perhaps he's being rebellious

Well, he is in his NO phase...

"You want to eat?"
"NO!"
*Eats his food anyway*

"You want to take a nap on the couch?"
"NO!"
*Goes and lays down on the couch anyway*

Yesterday I went outside for a second and then cam back in. He was waiting for me at the door wearing one black dress shoe, and one red/black sneaker.

I love my Crocs. You'll never see me in them unless you come to my house though as I use them only as slippers or to run out to the mailbox/car, not as everyday shoes

all this crac hate seems odd. No one is suggesting lawyers start wearing them in court, but if someone wants to go to the grocery store or some other casual activity I don't see why not. Crocs sell well because they're comfortable and easy to clean. Nobody should care what some stranger's opinion of their shoes are. If we all stopped worrying about what other people are wearing life would be a lot better for everyone.

tl;dr: why does anyone care?

Thanks. I now have an image of me sensually rubbing my Crocks on Katy Perry's crotch. The sad part is, I might be able to roll with that...

Yes, he is responsible for pretty much ALL of the Crocs ever sold in Sweden as owner of their distributor there.

No, sometimes, sometimes, no, and hell, no. Damn, if you're going to generalize, try to at least construct a more lifelike stereotype.

I don't mind Crocs so much. They're at least functional, evidently.

It's the Uggs I have an utterly irrational hatred for.
 
2012-01-13 03:33:14 AM  
You know, they do have a bunch of models that aren't hideously fugly and are really comfortable. The original ones, those are fugly, no doubt about it.

I'm sure the shoes, tv, food, and beer you consume are from some little known place. We probably haven't even heard of any of them.
