relaxitsjustme: Now if people would quit wearing VFF footwear could start to look reasonable again


I've only worn the toe shoes in public once or twice, but I absolutely LOVE them for yard work and general working around the house.  Nice and cool without worrying about stepping on something.

I got in at $69 in October 2007.  I tell ya, this foam shoe thing is gonna be huge!  Women are tired of wearing uncomfortable things just because men find that these items make them look attractive.  Women are tired of impressing other women with fashionable and expensive items.  This is a big, long term trend and Crocs are on the cutting edge!  $200 a share here we come!  Better get in now!

I have a pair I got 6 years ago and they are still ok.  I wear them when I need to go outside for a quick chore: get the paper, take out the trash, etc.  They are still in good condition so really I only need the one pair.  Since I only have one pair and don't need another I guess I'm not helping their sales anymore.

I have six different pair of Crocs and rarely wear anything else.  Wearing some right now--these ones:

Seriously, wearing the Patricia sandals around the house pretty much healed my plantar fasciitis. I also wear the ballet flats while walking the dog & puttering around the yard. I wouldn't wear them to work or going out though. If Crocs go bust I will stockpile 50 years worth of their shoes because they've been so good for my feet.

I'm wearing Crocs right now. Unfortunately for me they don't make this style anymore.

Damn skippy.

Combining shares of SodaStream into a fund with Dr. Thunder and Royal Crown is a license to print money as far as I'm concerned.

You mean to tell me that when Crocs lays off most of its eComm work force, 63 down to 5, which was accounting for 66% of the profit they might crash? Shocking.

That can't be it.

Crocs are hands down the best pair of slippers I've ever owned. Generic crocs were ok, but not comfortable. The real ones are awesome for messing around the house, taking out garbage, running to the store. If I gave a fark what Fark thinks of me, I'd have committed suicide years ago.

My Crocs are still in great shape after 2 years of daily service as slippers. Your Deerfoams look and smell like shiat after a few months.

When the tread dies on those, pop the inserts out and keep them. They will fit in pretty much any shoe out there and are insanely comfortable.

/Still have prototypes of those.
//Still have engineer friends that work for them. Lots of free shiat.

My original pair turned 8 last month.  I'm just now replacing them because they've gotten a little thin on the sole and I don't care to be punctured by a pin shell.

Call them and tell them they shrunk. Company policy is that everyone gets 1 replacement pair due to shrinkage (the gasses in the shoes will vent when exposed to heat).

My NDA has expired so now I get to say this type of stuff.

Great for every "pro" about Crocs, and you don't look like a complete idiot when wearing them.

Crocs are the best toddler shoes ever, cause lets face it toddlers are disgusting. My son has a pair of Keen sandals and they simply reek, nothing has ever gotten the smell out. With his crocs, I just through them in some cleaning solution and they are great. Plus he loves getting Jibbitz to put on his shoes, which makes for a nice/cheap bribes.

We are a nation of overgrown children with low self-esteem and no shame going out in public looking like a slob who got dressed out of a rumpled laundry basket.

Good.

More job offers for us real adults.

Wait I thought the problem was we turned all of our children in to snowflakes who have high self esteem?

I am confused.

Q. How is wearing Crocs like getting a BJ from a dude?

A. It feels really good, until you look down and discover that you're gay.

Why would an adult give a fark what shoes other people wear?
