I am, as always, an asshole

and I went to the Hippie Mart ™ to pick up dinner tonight and as we were walking in an employee was setting up a display of Crocs, otherwise known as “the most unattractive shoes of modern times”. Corinna remarked at how high their price was, and I commented that they should pay you to wear them since they make you look like a complete douchebag.

It was at this point that I noticed that the customer two feet in front of us was wearing Crocs.

  1. But the Croc-wearing customer had only him/herself to blame! How could anyone think it was a good idea to wear such a thing? They’re worse than Uggs, or even jelly shoes.

  2. They are not that bad, well on most people they are pretty bad. You have to have a hippy look to you to wear those things, otherwise you just look like a trendy prick.

  3. That was one thing that pissed me off when I was in Hawaii with Gad…. There are Adult Crocs, kiddie crocs and baby crocs. BABY CROCS, for God’s sake! WHY?! What kind of hippie-tree-hugging-parent would do that to their kid?!

    1. Baby Crocs

      You know what, I have baby crocs for Lisa and these are THE ONLY shoes out of I-don’t-know-how-many-pairs I bought until last month that are roomy enough to accomodate her high rise/arch feet and light enough for her to be able to lift her feet off the ground. And they can be washed easily. When buying them, I was not looking to follow ugly fasion, but for her comfort and to use as water shoes when we go to the shore.

  4. I think they would be quite handy for their (original?) purpose as gardening shoes (dirt falls out holes, you can hose them down).

    But the crossover to mainstream footwear is a ssd, sad state of affairs.
