Well, it seems I may have ruffled a few feathers with my disdain for Crocs.

Don't get your hopes up, folks. I am never, NEVER going to advocate for Crocs. They are a loathsome abomination. Muppets have better-looking feet than that. The people who loosed these on the world belong in the same circle of hell as the ones who came up with those t-shirts that have tuxedos printed on them and the women who made the velour sweatsuits that have "Juicy" printed on the ass.

So. I'll provide you with some alternatives. I won't just throw you to the wolves, dear ones. I'm here to help. (All these photos are links, btw.)

Nice. Not at all embarrassing to wear to the grocery store, or anywhere else.

Fun, sporty, can be tossed into the washer.

So adorable!

These look toasty warm.

Love the little bit of hardware.

Great stitching detail.

And even something for wet weather. Flowered wellies -- how fun is that??

Okay? Now take those horrid holey plastic things off and give them to the labrador retriever to chew on.

gI HATE Crocs. It amazes me that adults wear them in public. They're about as sexy as garden clogs, but three times as expensive.

Just don't start trash-talking my birkis, and we'll be fine :~D

Oh glorious web. Now another sidetracker when I ought to be working. You are funny and I agree with you to the max on what I've read so far. I'm in Seattle and I'm gonna send you TONS of crocalternatives. We don't HAVE to all wear hiking boots and fleece, do we? No we don't! And for those that do- fine. But not me. (tons o crocalternatives to come- maybe not today, though.)

Oh I agree! All of the kids in my daughters gymnastics class where them. Not my little girl instead I found her an adorable pair of green rubber rain boots, they have pink flowers printed on them and she thinks she should wear them eveyrday. She wants to wear them with everything including her cute pink dress. Sometimes I just give in!!!
