I am hanging my head in shame as I write this blog. Why you may ask? Because after years of resistance I’ve succumbed to the pressure, all for the sake of comfort. I never thought that I would have given in, I believed that I would have held out till the very end. I called you the worst of names, vowing to never be one of your followers. I scorned the very presence of you in my home. That was until I slid my feet into you one day… and I was sold. Now, we are inseparable and go everywhere together.
I am an official croc-wearer. I still don’t think they are the most attractive but I like them for their versatility and comfort, and I’ve reached the age where I prefer to be comfortable more than anything else. I got sold on the idea of getting a pair when I first saw my daughter in one. They looked cute on her feet and I wanted to borrow them to go run an errand. She bluntly refused and told me that I would stretch it out, by the way this is the same daughter who helps herself to every single thing I own without asking.

Initially, I wanted a pair of crocs to wear in the yard, next thing you know, I am wearing them to drive, wash the car, go to the supermarket, to the mall. I wear them everywhere, the only places I have not worn my crocs are to church and to work. But I’ve seen colleagues of mine wearing theirs to work so if you see me with them on don’t judge. You name it, you can do it in your crocs. I love the durability, the holes to let your feet breathe, the straps in the back. These croc designers thought of everything.
Crocs have taken the world by storm. I’ve seen everyone wearing them, from farmers to doctors, hairdressers to brides. When you think about it, who doesn’t like comfort? And if you want to give them some character you can add some gems and jibbitz. I saw some creatives who personalize crocs for a living. The possibilities are endless. Right now I only have one pair but I intend to get a few more.
POV: Don’t knock it till you try it.
Tell me in the comments, where do you wear your crocs?
