Crocs are a Croc
Ahhhh, fads at its best.
Crocs. What the heck are they? I have an idea. Ugly. Stupid.
Some rich "genius" up on a 50 floor office building is looking down on all the "suckers" down there and laughing his head off. For real. This whole thing is right up there with the pet rock.
Don't even start with me. I know the arguments. Or, check that, THE argument, since there is only one. That they are comfortable. Fine. I understand that. But honestly, if we wore the most comfortable things in our day to day lives, we'd all look like this.
If only we were so lucky.
I'm all about function over form. But there is a line. Otherwise you'd see me driving around a Subaru Baja.
IN FACT, those who DO wear crocs don't look much better than this. I'm just shocked that in the "fashion" age that we live in, where looks are always OH SO important, and this is the best we've come up with.
Oh, and wait, you claim that they are so comfortable, but I'm finding it hard to believe that we've got nothing better. Nike just came out with a shoe that simulates you walking completely on air. Air!!! At least they are improving on a GOOD idea.
You're wearing crocodiles on your feet for cryin' out loud!!! Don't you all get it???? You've been duped!!! Would you wear these around??
But, I guess in the end thats what makes fads great. That in the years afterward you can look back at all those pictures of yourself with your mulletts, Jams, Puffy shirts and crocs and realize what an idiot you were.
