A CROCTASTIC PLEA


And you thought you were the only one?

If you think about it, the Crocs company should really be admired. P. T. Barnum would be proud. They’ve managed to separate money from the wallets of millions and millions of seemingly sane people who wake up, look in the closet, and actually decide: “Today I’ll leave the house wearing these neon-green Dutch bubble shoes with Swiss-cheese holes in them. Maybe I’ll even buy some little plastic strawberries or bananas and jam them in the sweat holes, just to jazz things up and make the bacteria incubate faster.” That’s fine. I say do whatever you want in the privacy of your own home. Let your Crocs freak flag fly. But don’t make the rest of us watch…

So I’m begging you, America. Just stop. When you wake up tomorrow and look at your options, choose flip-flops. Go barefoot. Wear boots. Anything but Crocs. By next summer—if we all work together—we can have this plague of bad taste virtually eliminated. Yes! We! Can!

These are experts of possibly one of the most amusing plea editorials I’ve ever read: Make. It. Stop. And I agree…these should not be worn by anyone over the age of 7, in which they actually make the wearer super adorable, especially if they are in that hot pink color. But after that age, these little monsters start to wear the wearer, meaning if one particular individual aged, oh I don’t know, mid teens or 20’s, were to be spotted a mile away wearing these, they’ve committed to a fashion disaster: the Crocs make up the unfashionability (?) of the person. And that is just a sad matter that should never occur. Really, no matter how comfortable they are….please!!! Just. Say. No. 🙂 Thank you and you’re welcome.

    Chicagoans constantly rock these like they’re cool claiming they’re comfortable. They’re just awful.
    Maybe ok for the kids.
