    Like I said, when lives are at stake, something as shallow as attractiveness isn't so important. I probably wouldn't wear them out to a nice place, or to the mall, or if I had a job that was not so physical. But work, the beach/pool, the yard, running to the quickstop or grocery, doing anything else practical that did not require footwear that was different...yes.

    Ah, then I stand corrected!

    I didn't realise they came in different styles. All my friend seem to be wearing the backless style and, in my ignorance, I thought that was the sole (pardon the pun!) option.

    alright, i'll be the first to say that crocs are ugly ass shoes, but i wear them to the river if we go rafting or something. That is one of the many things they are good for.

    I don't even own Crocs. Mine are knockoffs from Walmart! I like to take the dorkness to a new level when I embrace a "trend".

    Seriously though, I wear mine for working around the house. They can be hosed off, bleached and probably boiled if you needed it. I let my son get a pair because he wanted sandals to play in and I thought it would be a great idea for him to have shoes that he could slip on without help to go out in and then there's the hosing, bleaching and potential boiling factor. What I didn't figure for would be the blisters. When I wore mine, the plastic rivets on the strap had rubbed my ankles a bit. Nothing severe. When he wore his little red knock-crocs, his ankles were rubbed raw and sore, complete with cuts, in an afternoon!

    I don't know if that's a common thing or not but obviously he didn't get to wear his anymore.

    Preston disgusted by Crocs - Yahoo! News UK

    Kelly Preston disgusted by Crocs...

    Hollywood beauty Kelly Preston is horrified by the recent trend for colourful Crocs shoes and can't wait to the public to tire of the plastic footwear.

    The shoes were tipped as the next big thing in fashion last year, but the footwear has only grown in popularity in 2007.

    Celebrities including Al Pacino, Drew Barrymore, Teri Hatcher, Matt Damon, Faith Hill, Rosie O'Donnell and U.S. President George W. Bush have been spotted wearing the American-made shoes, which were originally designed for boaters.

    Preston tells the New York Daily News, "I cannot deal with those Crocs sandals.

    "They're comfy but no thank you! I'm happy to see that trend on its way out."

    I tried on a pair of these at Target yesterday and they weren't comfortable at all. Maybe I have the wrong kind of foot structure for these?

    My son - 9 years - suggested that he wanted a pair. He agrees they are ugly but he wanted to get a camo pair and put those little decorations in them - Longhorn decorations!

    Me, too, although I think plastic shoes are awful in general unless you are gardening or at the beach or something. Your feet can't breathe in them, they smell, they hurt, they're ugly -- I just don't get their appeal personally.

    The thetans like the crocs and don't want to leave the CO$ bodies. I'm buying a pair for around the yard.

    Every time I go to the mall I toy with buying a pair. I know quite a few people who rave about the comfort level, and Journey's carries a Mary Jane style that isn't as bulky as the originals. Eventually I'll cave and buy them.

    However, I saw a pair that are even worse than the originals last time I was there. They are FAR more hideous in person, if you can believe it.
