Crocs.... shameful at best!

Andrea and I were traveling back from Arizona, we were sitting on the shuttle that was taking us back to long term parking when I heard a women telling her husband how warm it had been in Utah. She leaned over and said, "Its been so warm you could have worn your C-R-O-C-S!". I first thought it was funny that she spelled it out and then it hit me... he must be ashamed that he owns and enjoys wearing crocs. For those of you who don't know what crocs are then you have nothing to worry about. If you know first hand what crocs are... because you own a pair... pay attention. You need to burn those as quickly as possible. Consider this a public service announcement... when it gets warmer in the next few months... buy some flip flops (thongs) and put your crocs out in the trash!


I am assuming that this is a man wearing these crocs by the hair on the legs... I could be wrong but can you see what crocs lead to! Socks with sandal like shoes! Please see the light! Think twice before you wear crocs!



Here is another man wearing crocs... they're navy blue which is a slight improvement... but why in the world would you want to look like you have duck feet?



Rosie wears crocs... is that not reason enough???????




This to me is a huge red flag! If people have found ways to embellish the crocs to make them more appealing to young kids... they are not for adults anymore! Time to move on. I have an example from my childhood... I remember when the Coolio song "Gansta's paradise" was really cool... I also remember the moment when it stopped being cool... I was driving in the car with my Mom and she knew and sang every word. (We were driving in her car and were headed west on Lake Forest Blvd and Toledo Rd.) Do you understand where I am coming from now?



If croc decorating is something that young girls do at slumber parties... then maybe grown men and women should not wear these!




Um... these should be outlawed!



I don't care if you are the president of the United States of America... crocs are the worst thing ever invented. Wearing these shoes is by far the worst decision President Bush has made as President.




Ok... this is what crocs drive people to do! Why in the world would a grown man in a suit have the desire to match his shirt with his shoes. This is a mess... I would send him home to change if he worked for me! I am sure his name tag reads: "Hello my name is... I have no women in my life.. do you know what I am doing wrong?" Yes we do... its the crocs!





There just isnt anything in the world like sitting next to a warm fire place with a hideous pair of crocs on. Notice there are no man legs in this picture? There is a reason... the ugly crocs scared them away.



So in conclusion... never wear crocs! Find another alternative. If you see someone wearing crocs... helps them! If you are looking to help people that wear crocs... here are some things to look for...

1. They are usually by themselves or with small children (also wearing crocs.. they will probably be talking about how to decorate their crocs.)

2. Look for people with fanny packs on! If they are still hanging on to the fanny pack... chances are they just discovered crocs. Stop them before it gets too serious.

3. Look for people wearing tie dyed shirts with wolves and bears and indians and rainbows and stuff on them. You know the kind... we have seen these at Walmarts and truck stops all over the country.

4. Your neighbor next store may even shock you... the people you least expect who usually have some fashion sense may be guilty of wearing crocs.

5. Hospitals across the country are flooded by nurses wearing these things... make sure they put real shoes on before they work on you... for sanitation sake!

PLEASE PLEASE THINK TWICE THE NEXT TIME YOU ARE TEMPTED TO WEAR THE CROCS YOU MAY ALREADY OWN. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU AND WANT MORE FOR YOU THAN CROCS!

Anneke said...

(amy) said...

anneke and costco...oh brother...
brad. i am soo ashamed to admit this to you of all people...but i, amy levatau, do own a pair of crocs! GASP!!!!
BUT LET ME EXPLAIN!
they are the dang freakin comfortablest things ever to wear when you're on your feet a lot...like at work, as a cna, at a nursing home or hospital! THAT is why i got them...cuz everyone wore them and they really did make it nice on my feet after a long 12 hr shift! but i no longer wear them, they sit and rot in my closet. so don't hate.

Brad said...

Amy... there is help for people like you!

Joyce said...

I'm just rebellious enough that I'm going to buy some just as soon as I get me next paycheck which won't be for 3 more weeks! Probably bright yellow ones that I can wear to do my copy job in.

Okay, J would hug you and cry tears of joy if he read this. He HAAAAAATEs those things!! I have never had a pair either. Never wanted to.
BUT we were in Nordstrom buying some boots for me and at the register counter they had this bin of little tie-tack decorations. I stood there FOREVER wondering what they were and finally asked the guy ringing us up. He demonstrated... "It's a great way to show your uniquness and personality!" I say that MIGHT be a fun idea for toddlers, but comeon, any older than that? You're so right.

My wife was going to purchase a pair of these last year and I made her put them back and told her that if she bought them I wouldn't be seen with her when she had them on! Just thought I'd let you know that you're not the only one who absolutely loathes C-R-O-C-S!!!!!!!!!!

Edna said...

Duuuude, you wouldn't be anti-Croc if you ever had a foot prob (as in PAIN) that wearing them CURED. I'm just sayin'! They are the most comfortable, plantar-fasciitis-curing pair of shoes I've ever worn. If loving Crocs is wrong, I don't want to be right!

Well, this post totally cracked me up. But as a so called Croc lover, I have to differ with you in general but some parts I agree with you. At first I was skeptical. But whenI first wore crocs, I liked them immediately. They don't just make the ones you mention which are now called Croc classic, but they have newer ones that look like sneakers and flip flops. And I have yet to receive a hapte comment about them in person. In fact, people like them, especially in college. They are comfy and somewhat trendy. Both girls and guys like them and wear them. But I do agree with you when You mention the jibbitz. It's a bit much! And crocs in the winter are a big no-no. Um, time to bring the Uggs out perhaps? And the guy in the suit should not be wearing them. Either wear the suit or the crocs, never both! And Fanny packs are so 90's can we please get rid of them! Anyways, I talked about Crocs in my blog so if you want more, please check it out!
