An Assault on the Senses

July 8, 2009

You may have noticed something in some recent pictures that bothered you. You’re right: Crocs (and their knock-offs) are disgusting. They are beyond unattractive. Stinky summer feet + plastic is not a nice combination. The very IDEA of walking around in plastic shoes hurts. I remember wearing plastic shoes

and it was not nice.

But the beauty of Crocs (and the knock-offs) is this: two-year-olds can put them on all by themselves.

That is priceless.

    Hey, they don’t stink! And we are on our third summer for some pairs in our house, they can take a lot of abuse and are easy to wash. They are by far my kids’ favorite shoes. I am not, however, a fan of the little buttons you can stick into the holes, those are tacky, and I am not a fan of adults in Crocs. But I think they are adorable on children.

    Ahhhh . . . jelly shoes. I can remember begging for a pair. We thought they’d be nice for playing in the creek but it ends up that a thin layer of plastic with a million holes in it is not much protection from rocks, sticks, and squishy weeds.

    I just remember them being terribly uncomfortable!

    The Washington Post has an article about Crocs today. Apparently the company is not doing well.

    Kind of a boom. I would expect another boom in about 20 years.
