They are ugly and will be out of fashion next year, deal with it.



Jellies! Yes! I forgot about these creatures! I have several different styles. Wow they were ugly! But I still like my crocs.

If jellies are what I think they are they looked sooooo cool (to a 6yr old me) but were sooooo painful, crocs are like the opposite.

Me and Laura have decided to get some next year when we're in Hungary becuase they're so much cheaper there and they're so useful when you're walking around all day at Sziget. They're good for camping too when you need the toilet and can't be bothered with laces.

OH MY GOSH! I JUST JUST JUST discovered the Prima style! I am so totally enthralled with them. MUST buy some.



(Laughing my head off at Remi's reminding all of us about jellies and other wonderful footwear... anyone remember Earth Shoes? Those were sooooo pretty too!)

Crocs may not be the most attractive shoe, but when you work at a veterinary hospital where you get peed and occassionally pooed or vomited on, its really nice to be able to just wash your shoe off and dry it. I wouldn't mind having a pair.

As long as you don't have the crocs that have holes in the front, and it gets on your toes.

Chaco gal here!

echo warrior, I think I love you- you got the main points out.

I had tevas & asked my Chinese SIL to read the writing inside the strap. She did and said, "that's a bad prison."

I came to Chacos www.chacousa.com by photographing String Cheese Incident.

At the time (98) they all wore the sandals, if tehy bothered to wear shoes at all. I tripped over the pile stage right one night and after the show asked if the shoes were really all they seemed to be.

One loaned me his pair (yay huge snowshoe feet) and told we to just walk. once I was oon the floor, he tossed me a hula hoop and said: "dance."

been in them since, year round. in Colorado. In snow (Ok I have snow boots for walking)

I have two pair, bout the first in 98 the second in 2002 (the day Denver could see the Hayman fire plume- I packed pair one up to send it to Paonia for resoling and discovered I had no other shoes- off to REI) I think each have been resoled with the thin sole twice.

I'll be going for the new mid thickness sole on one and the clunky on the other.



And now I know what the W on my shoes means: snowshoe feet. (I've been thinking it meant women's, not wide)

Crocs were what all the nurses were wearing while Mom was in the hospital. I got a pair, but they weren't' as comfortable as my old sandels.

I adore my fake crocs! They were half the price and supremely comfortable --they cost $14 two years ago. I wear them constantly and put them in the dishwasher for cleaning. A recent visit to the hospital revealed all the hospital workers were wearing them and they know their shoes!

I have this thing about doing something just because everyone else is. So far I have not bought myself a pair of crocs. I have heard that they are really comfortable and my entire family (minus me) has a pair. In fact my mom just ordered my dad another pair (orange) for Christmas. I think they would be fine for around the home or out running errands on the weekends, but when I see adults wearing colored crocs to church, I cringe inwardly. If I did get a pair, it would have to be black or silver, some nice neutral colorg. I have two pairs of birkenstocks that I wear out and about when i know I am going to do some serious walking, but I wear them for comfort not because they look beautiful

I like my Crocs. I don't care if people think that they're ugly. Why does it really matter what shoe someone wears? I'd rather wear a comfortable shoe that looks ugly than a nice-looking shoe that hurts my feet. Looks aren't important.

I love my Crocs. I actually want more. Currently I have Black Primas, Black Mary Janes and my favorite: Chocolate Brown Mary Janes. I prefer comfort over fashion any day.

I have recently decided to buy my Kids Crocs and they both tell me they are very comfortable. So I've decided to get some for myself. They are non-slip and odour resistant. What more can you want. I heard that they last ages too!

I have a pair of black RX Crocs. They're great at work where my feet are always getting wet & I love that I can hose them off to clean them.

I have a pair of the hydros in black. I love them! I was disappointed though on how a couple (not sure how many) of their shoes have leather on them. I wrote and told them about my disappintment and how there were leather like alternatives out there. I have not heard back from them. I am not surprised though.

I can't tell whether you are serious but its funny either way I hate the shoes with a passion. High heels are much more comfortable and prettier. My mom loves crocs though. She has at least 4 pairs.
