The Sweatpant of Shoes

Crocs. I don't know where they came from or why they're still here, but I want them to go away. There have been many dubious fashions to come and go over the years, but I have yet to find any article of clothing more clunky, more offensive, or more tasteless than this sad example of a "shoe."

"Oh, but they're so comfortable!" the unfortunate cry, "Why, they hardly feel like I'm wearing shoes at all!"

Guess what? I don't care. They're ugly, and they make you look lazy. House slippers are comfortable too, and so are sweatpants, or oversized t-shirts - yet normal human beings who possess the concept of "shame" would never be caught dead walking around in public wearing them. I may be in severe pain at the end of the day and suffer irreversible nerve damage, but fuck it if I don't look good in my pointy-toed high heels. I'd rather have compliments than comfort.

Next time you see a person wearing them, please make sure to do as I do - point and laugh. Until everyone learns to be ashamed of themselves, I'm going to have to continue to look at this ugly-ass rubber rainbow of wrong indefinitely.

totally agreed. They make every outfit look terrible. They're the unisex version of pink sweatpants that read "Princess" on the ass. atrocious.

Ick. People in my building wear them to WORK. And what I don't get is why they sell them in Hallmark.

I don't own a pair...I'm tragically unhip.

My parents have some but wear them to the pool and in the locker room, which is where they seem the most appropriate...but that's just me.
