I refused for a long, long time. But since Ive been working in the backcountry a bit, I see why everyone uses them for camp shoes instead of japflaps. They're light, grippy and cover your feet from bees and copperheads. So I bought some "Airwalk" crocs at payless a week ago. They are camoflage. How manly is that?

Have 2 pair. Think they're uber hideous. On the other hand they are incredibly comfortable. Love wearing em on my way to go ride the bike. Makes things easy.

I really don't care what anyone says, I work in the restaurant industry as a cook and wear crocs. They are uber comfortable and they protect your feet from whatever comes at them. Plus they are 40 bucks a pair compared to the 100 plus danskos and other brands that are popular....

When I see people wearing Crocs, I know immediately that we have nothing in common, and that we could never be friends or have any meaningful kind of relationship. They come in every color imaginable yet look bad with every other article of clothing ever created. The only thing that goes with Crocs is social ostracism.

To their credit though, Crocs serve as an excellent idiot barometer; you can tell a lot about people wearing them. For example, Amazon.com suggest products that other customers have purchased based on the item you're shopping for. Here are the suggestions for Crocs *( Below)


When it comes to shoes, there are usually three deciding factors: quality, price, and style. Some shoes are cheap and stylish, but poor quality, while others are stylish and durable, but expensive. Crocs usually go for $30-$60, which doesn't sound like much for a shoe, until you consider that what you're really paying for are melted pellets squirted into a cast-iron mold in some province in China. Crocs have the rare combination of being expensive, poor quality, and ugly. It's quite a feat for one shoe to suck this bad.

People who wear Crocs go on and on about how comfortable they are, and how it's supposedly odor resistant because it's made out of some kind of anti-bacterial foam. Great point, dip****s! You know what else it's resistant to? You getting laid. Then as if the shoes weren't disgusting enough, Crocs introduced a product called "Crocs butter" that's supposed to restore that illustrious injection-molded sheen to those gaping holes they call shoes:


You know that feeling you get when you're full and slightly nauseous and you burp and you can taste the partly digested food in the back of your throat? There isn't a word in the english language to succinctly describe it, but I will hereby refer to it as: croc-butter.
Thanks Maddox my thoughts exactly.

Ok.

#1 - why in the world would one want to purchase PBR Light???

#2 - You must be a pretty big alcoholic if you're too drunk to even stumble your drunk ass down to the liquor store and have to resort to purchasing booze online.

A link to the original article would've been a lot better.

WTF? "No yuppie sandals here" yet you'll fork out $50+ for a pair of designer leather pads with a strap?
I've had my current pair for 7 years. I call that a worthwhile purchase, especially since I paid $30 for them.
