Crocs - Really?! --- Really!
I slipped some on once and thought - "ok, they are cushy - they might be comfortable, but I will NEVER have a pair of these on my feet, and especially NOT to wear in public!" But Crocs did it. They heard my voice and made a shoe that is not only one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn (yes, I admit it), but they are also somewhat attractive, kind of cute - maybe! Anyway - I have horrible feet. I've had three surgeries for various things and have lots of problems with the tootsies, my heals and aches and pains caused from the surgeries. Finding a shoe I can wear without seriously making my feet hurt has been a challenge - especially as I've gotten older and comfort has become paramount. I still want to look somewhat fashionable - and still will NOT EVER wear the original Croc in public - but I do have to say - I LOVE my Crocs! Really! Whew - can't believe I just said that! :)
I mean, seriously, isn't this a CUTE shoe? It's not high fashion - but I don't look at it and think - CROCS - ugh. These have become my 'go-to' pair of shoes. I even wore them the other night when we took our 3-mile walk around the neighborhood.
And if you know me at all - you know I love my flip- flops and will wear then as soon as the frost clears the ground! My tootsies love to wiggle and get sunshine. So - I was really happy when I noticed on Zulily.com, that the Croc company made these - just for me!
I'm hoping to get some different colors and cruise through the summer in comfort! I'm really rough on flip-flops. Mine usually only last one season - even the expensive athletic ones I have purchased in the past. I'm thinking these will get me through more than one summer!
So - Change your thoughts about Crocs and try something new. Never thought I'd say these words - but I'm glad I did! I purchased mine from a Croc's Store and on-line, but have also seen them in Kohls. Happy Trails!
