When CROCS first appeared in the streets on the feet of just about every 4th person you passed, as a shoe connoisseir I was literally repulsed and horrified! I was in disbelief that these people couldn't see how ugly these shoes were and how ridiculous they looked.
But they have continued to multipy as if they are the footwear equivalent of Scientology, I suspect CROC owners must be required to spread the word and recruit above all else. I swore I would never wear them and humiliate my usually fashionably attired feet.
Then I spotted this purple pair in a store and decided they were alot better than the 'holey' ones. As you know I am a keen gardener and I thought they would make perfect garden shoes, so I succumbed.
My feet went into raptures, they were literally the most comfortable shoes they had ever been clad in and they were a cute colour. But then it got hot here and the design of these mean't my feet were sweating big time. So with my feet begging me to keep them in cushioned and well supported but more airy comfort, 'quelle horreur' I ordered myself the pink holey ones, figuring the brighter the colour the better, if I must wear them!
My feet were eternally grateful and they rapidly became my daily footwear of choice, I have even been known to wear them outside the borders of our home, i.e. IN PUBLIC! Last week I even took them with me to work to change into whilst I was trudging back and forth clearing stuff.
And that's when I saw my good friend Judy wearing her brightly coloured CROC Thongs and full of the joys of how comfortable her feet are. So as we wear the same size, she kicked them off and let me take them for a test ride. 2 days later the little darlings pictured below arrived from Endless.com!
My feet are happy, I have eaten CROC humble pie and become a convert and now I am doing my duty and working on any other non-believers out there. Oh and by the way, the imitations do not compare at all for comfort and support.
This a footwear fashionista speaking to you people, I own more than 70 pairs of shoes! But right now if I had 1 minute to grab a few pairs and run for my storm cellar, 3 of them would be these and then 1 cute pair just to preserve my reputation.
CROCS are without doubt the best shoes for your feet you will ever wear, they're comfortable, give great support and you can wear them for hours - if you don't have a pair already, then swallow your pride and try a pair, your feet will be eternally grateful and your pride will be long forgotten!
Now I am coveting a pair of the first ones in the advert above, the CROC Wedge aka. Cyprus, how cute are those and with a heel - bliss!
