I've been seeing Crocs shoes (the original clog type) for a few years now and I have to say I think they are the UGLIEST things I've ever seen in my life. I don't care how comfortable they are I would never have even tried a pair of them on due to the ugliness of the shoe. I always thought to myself, why couldn't they make their comfortable shoes in a cute sandal or something slightly less hideous?
So one day I was out and I saw this woman in the cutest, most comfortable looking flip flops and I asked her who made them and where she got them. When she told me they were Crocs I almost passed out. They heard my prayers and sent me an answer! LOL She had on the Capri style and I loved them. I went home and looked them up on the internet to see about cost and other colors. I didn't really want to pay 40.00 for a pair of flip flops but they looked so comfortable and I had a vacation coming up where I'd be walking a lot so I decided to go try some on.
So I go to Dillards and I find the Crocs and try on the Capri and my feet fell in love! Comfortable and cute? I'll take them in every color please! I actually only got them in the chocolate/cotton candy color because it was more neutral and matched most of my outfits. I do want black ones and white ones though. I probably would have gotten black ones right there on the spot if they hadn't been out of my size. That's how much I loved them. My friend who was there with me thought they were so cute on me that she tried on a pair and ended up buying them too.
So fast forward to my vacation. I wore them probably 80% of the time and my feet were nowhere near as tired or sore as they were in sneakers and other shoes. I love that they dry super fast too.
The only thing I don't like is that for 40.00 shoes, the soles do not last! They wear down pretty fast and then the bottom becomes slippery. Other than that though I have no complaints. These are great. Cute, cool and comfortable. Just what I love.
Thanks Crocs for making a non-ugly shoe! :)
