Okay, what's up with these shoes? And why do I know they're called Crocs? I don't want to know their name, and I never want to see another pair again.
They're everywhere. We saw people wearing them while hiking (through snow) in Glacier National Park. We saw them when watching the Boston Pops at Blossom outdoor amphitheatre in Cleveland the other weekend. I shudder to think of how many pairs I might see at Cedar Point.
Can they really be so comfortable that people throw all sense of fashion to the wind and wear these clunky plastic shoes everywhere? I can definitely understand the argument about wearing them at work for nurses, teachers, etc.—people who are on their feet all day. Wear them to work! I don't care.
But the only time I've seen them is at social functions. I'm not saying that everyone needs to be wearing stiletto heels or anything ... but a nice-looking pair of flats or mules, maybe? Is that too much to ask? Well, how about some Skechers, then? Rumor has it you can be comfortable and fashionable at the very same time.
This picture is actually from The Superficial, and it's of Jared Leto out on the town. I get the feeling he thinks they're so ugly they're cool. But I'm not buying it.
