10 Reason Why You Shouldn’t Wear Crocs

Why you should have left your Crocs back in 2006.

Recently, the rubber shoes formally known as Crocs seem to be coming back into style. Well, if they can even be called stylish. Here are 10 reasons why Crocs should be packed back up, shoved to the back of the closet or just straight up thrown away.

10. Blisters.

It is impossible to go more than an hour in Crocs without the hard plastic sides creating terrible blisters on the sides and backs of the feet. Wearing a pair of rubber shoes is not worth the agonizing pain that will result.

9. Foot sweat, and consequentially, smelly feet.

The rubbery insides of Crocs cause terrible foot sweat, leaving Croc-wearers doomed to have terribly smelling feet for the whole day.

8. Not ideal for unpredictable weather.

Living in the Midwest, the weather is extremely unpredictable. One second it is 75 and sunny, the next it is the polar vortex. Crocs do not provide the correct protection needed to face freezing cold snow or large puddles of rain.

7. What are you supposed to wear with them?

No matter whether they are fur lined, sandals or classic Crocs, they do not look good with any outfit. They are not formal enough to wear with a dress, look awkward paired with any style of jeans and make sweatpants look like part of a clown suit.

6. Danger.

Crocs are terribly dangerous due to the multitude of holes on the top of the shoes. Meant to provide ventilation for overheated feet, all they really do is allow sharp objects to impale the foot at any time.

5. Not good for activities.

There is not much to be done while wearing Crocs. They can’t be worn in a business setting. Running, biking, hiking or any sort of physical activity besides walking are out of the question. They are also not ideal for getting somewhere in a hurry.

4. Not durable.

The Crocs website is filled with terrible reviews of the quality of Crocs. Many poor buyers experience defective Crocs, or Crocs whose straps break in the matter of weeks. These shoes are simply not durable.

3. Overpriced.

For being such a cheaply made shoe, one would think that Crocs would be reasonibly priced. Wrong. Crocs are terribly overpriced. People are paying over $34 for two pieces of plastic, and even more for ‘special’ versions of the shoe.

2. Childish.

It’s as simple as this, one cannot be taken seriously if they are wearing brightly colored pieces of plastic splattered with princess and cartoon character “Jibbits” on their feet. Two things that can never be accomplished while wearing Crocs: getting hired for a job and getting asked on a date.

1. They’re just plain UGLY.

One reviewer on the Crocs website summed it up pretty well when they wrote, “These were the ugliest shoes I’ve ever owned. They are very expensive for such ugly shoes. Crocs are so 2005. It’s not like you can even wear crocs every day they don’t match with anything. That’s all I have to say about these ugly clogs but I mean if you like the style go ahead and buy them. I’d give it a 0 rating if I could.”

Crocs are just simply offensive to the eyes and should not be worn under any circumstances, ever.

    So numbers 10and 9 seem legitamit. However 7 – 1 seem to have a opinion baced on pure opinion. There are a set of rules that most croc wearers know. 1- they are a summer shoe , worn with shorts or rolled up pants/ jeans . No socks. They are cheap. For $6.50 they are worth buying two pair at Canadian tire to last 2-3 summers. The use for these shoes should be clearly defined before leaving the house. You can run with them… To cross the road. They are dangerous( like all soft toe shoes ) if you choose to do manual labor with them. Although a quarter inch or rubber often is equally as good if not better than thin leather. As for water and sand, the beauty of these shoes is that these materials flow in AND out of the shoe. If someone who truly did not care for what other people think, and considerd the benefits of appropriate croc use, they would set an ideal example for the true ideals of a logical person. One who would bace their conclutions on the facts of reality. The fact that the croc is an ideal summer season shoe.
