OK, silly topic, but everywhere I go lately they are numerous people wearing Crocs. To me they are the the silliest footwear fad that has come out since the jelly shoes of the eighties. They look like they don't fit well, after several wears they are terribly scuffed and dirty, and DON'T get me started on the 'unique' colors they come in.

However, there are many people who 'luv' their Crocs and own several pairs. Again, reminding me of the 'jelly shoe' craze.

So what do you think? Do you luv Crocs, hate 'em, or don't really care??

Crocs is a line of footwear that are kind of like a sandal made out of 'plastic like' material. Here is a link to one of the 'classic Crocs' on their website.

They make a wider range of products now, the company was started in 2003 and the shoes are quite popular now. They also have inspired quite a few knock offs as well. A lot of the shoes are branded with collegiate logos and sport quite brite neon and non-traditional colors. They also make shoes which are designed for the medical community, outdoorsman, and boating to name a few.

I don't get it most fashion fads nowadays. I can't understand what people see in the Crocs, I think they're pretty ugly myself. The Ugg boots look decent in comparison. But it's just shoes, and there's basketball sneakers much uglier.

Crocs to me look like something you would find for footwear at a dollar store. I do not understand what people like about them. They look to me like some type of rubbery plastic stuff blown into a mold and called "shoes." They look terribly uncomfortable too. Reminds me of the kids shoes with the wheels in them, which are ultra annoying.

I think they're stupid, a fad, and don't offer much protection for your foot, but the doctors and nurses in Charlotte love to wear them at the hospitals.

I'm not the biggest fan of them. They look pretty silly to me.

HAHAHA I've never heard of them before, but they sure look silly. Of course, Ducks looked stupid back in the eighties, but my sister swore they were comfortable.

Guess I'm just not into faddish stuff.

I have a pair. Hated them until i got them -- had to get some type of water friendly footwear to go whitewater rafting. After having a pair I can attest that they are amazingly comfortable. I don't wear them anywhere but to or from the pool, at the lake, camping (at the campsite), and other related activities. I agree that they are ugly as h*ll so I don't wear them as normal footwear (prefer Birkenstocks which my partner thinks are uglier than Crocs...)

^ Didn't care for them either until I got a pair as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. They're really comfortable and make great house-shoes that you can wear outside if you need to.

I keep them in Florida for going to the beach or to the pool. Wouldn't think of wearing them in Washington. They are useful, though.

After saying how I hated them last week, I am now the owner of fake Crocs... I needed water shoes to go kayaking and all Job Lot had was $5 fake ones so I gave in.

i hate them because they are a fad, but i did try them on at REI and they are quite comfortable. however, i won't pay $30 for molded plastic. i own a pair of tevas for all my aquatic adventures (and more).

OK I gotta be honest. I'm a wee bit of a foot fetishist, so when it comes to ladies, the less, the better :D

On guys on the other hand...please cover 'em up.

That aside, I appreciate the practicality of Crocs, kinda like Uggs. I don't think they should really be worn as a fashion statement, but they have their purpose.

*ugh* they have to be the ugliest things I've ever seen.

The fact that they were the shoe of choice for prisoners in Idiocracy says it all...

Down with Crocs! Hideous abominations that tarnish the environment with their petroleum-based waste!

*Seriously, just get rid of them!
