My friend bought a pair of Croc shoes last summer and couldn’t stop talking about them. I personally couldn’t see what the fuss was all about. They were, in my opinion, garden shoes and they were ugly. She still insisted that they were the best shoes she ever owned and dared me to try a pair.
Not being one to back down from a dare, I succumbed and bought myself a pair of "ugly" Crocs. Within a few hours of wearing them, I had to take back everything I had said. She was right. They were the most comfortable shoes I had ever worn. I was reformed. I was sold.
I went out and bought a second pair, this time being All Terrain Crocs. These would be good for hiking, which I happen to do a lot of. I wore them on a hike and was ever more impressed that they were more comfortable than the first pair.
I will never knock a pair of Crocs again. When you find shoes that fit this well and actually make your feet feel good, you don’t even see them as ugly anymore. I never thought I would be an advocate for garden shoes.
