Crocs


I'm fed up and I have to ask:

Am I or am I not the only person in the United States that thinks these Crocs are the ugliest shoes sold in this or any country in a very, very long time?

No, that had nothing to do with food, unless it leads to a discussion of crocodile meat and where to find it in the Baltimore area - does anybody know? (The Eastern Shore? Southern Maryland? Please tell me!!!)

I concur.

Crocs = BARF

(clearly I am feeling eloquent and mature tonight)

I saw many, many pairs of Crocs being worn and sold while on vacation on Cape Cod last week. Eh. It should be illegal to wear them outside of the garden...or even just to wear them.

Funny that you mention that.

They should be outlawed they're so hideous. There is no reason that anyone should ever wear these shoes. I don't care if you're a doctor or a chef-suck it up and get some tennis shoes.

I was initially biased against Crocs because Mario Batali wore them. I also find them hideously ugly but can see why parents would let their kids wear them. Until I saw this story last night. Apparently Crocs + Escalators = Mutilation

Ugly as sin, but apparently extremely comfortable.

I know nothing about crocodile meat, but I know that I hate croc shoes. Even worse, I hate it when men wear them. But then, I have a pair of Uggs, and I live in LA. I am just as bad!

i don't think crocodiles are native to our shores, hon. alligators are.

i have some crocs. they're my dog-walking shoes. i pimped them up with some sparkles.

Y'all: Wow, the post that draws the most comments at any one time, and it has nothing to do with food! At least I know I'm not alone on this one.

Foodette: I'm shocked! Angelenos are with it - surely you wouldn't wear Uggs! :)

Fairfax: I'm not sure any man, woman or child can purty those things up. Godspeed...

I was thinking the same thing about the Crocs eliciting all the comments. I was at a hippie music festival last year. And all the hippies were wearing them. I wondered who sent all the hippies the memo. They are practical for camping/festival-going/spilling beer on your shoes, but so not cute.
