Dale recently posted an interview with a new blogger friend who allegedly hates Crocs.
Fine, hate Crocs if you must. Personally, I love my Crocs. I don't wear them around town, mind you. I wear them in the house, in the yard, and slip them on if I have to run outside for a limited time (e.g. to take the trash out or down to the corner to buy a quart of milk.)
I do NOT wear them to work, in the office or on public transportation. I basically think of them as glorified slippers.
That being said, I do love my Crocs. They are super comfortable, provide good arch support, have breathing holes for your feet to breathe and they are easy to sanitize for good foot hygiene.
You may think they're ugly, and I would tend to agree, although they seem more kitschy than anything else. And I'm not wearing them for high fashion.
So now that we've said all that, let me just tell you all this one thing so that we can be sure to understand each other:
If you rip on my Crocs, you had BETTER fucking not be a person who wears flip-flops. And if you malign my Crocs while being a flip-flop wearer who actually wears them to work or on the subway or on Manhattan city streets, I may have to kill you.
Flip-flops suck for the following reasons:
- They provide no support to your foot whatsoever
- They provide no covering or protection so that, God forbid, if you should ever step onto a CROWDED SUBWAY TRAIN OR CITY STREET you will risk getting your toes stepped on. But maybe you would like that because then you get to act like a big baby instead of taking responsibility for your poor choice of footwear
- And worst of all, they force the general public to have to look at your dirty and probably diseased feet.
Tell me people, how on earth can THIS:
be more offensive than THIS?
I know some of you wear flip-flops and you do work to keep your feet clean, well manicured and attractive - and for this I thank you. And I will not bother you about it UNLESS YOU MALIGN MY CROCS!
If you do, it will be war.
