I will admit to never having gotten on the Croc bandwagon. I’ve seen plenty of folks strolling about in them, I’ve played ‘spot the Croc’ with the kids when shopping, heard from nurses how they are so comfortable on the hard tile floors, etc. Every person I’ve talked to who has them extols the virtues of the rubber shoes. And every other member of the sock household is among them…
But I walk around most of the time feeling quite frumpy. And I just can’t wrap my head around being frumpy and having unattactive and often objectionally coloured footwear. There’s just so much frump a sock can dish out after all. And for some reason Crocs remind me so much of Paddington bear…
I’ll move on momentarily here….
My feet seem inextricably connected to my well being. If my feet are cold, for example, there is no way in heck any other part of me can be warm. And if my feet are sore, achy and tired, there is no way I will feel otherwise.
And I have known for some time that my current sneakers are horribly uncomfortable. And yet in a stroke of stupidity I wore these working Job2 and helping out behind the bar later that evening. Today I can barely stand to be on my feet for any length of time. This does not a happy sock make. These are the shoes of foot destruction:
Yeah, yeah… I hear ‘ya… how can someone who thinks Crocs are unattractive walk around wearing anything as ugly as those. Well after the way my feet feel today, I never will again. Ever. I just can’t take it anymore.
So, the question is, what moderately priced footwear do I replace them with? Yet another pair of bargain sneakers which could turn out to be just as bad, a pair of ugly rubber garden shoes, or something else? And if I chose the ugly and colourful rubber pair, what colour goes best with frump?
