Crocodile Dundee

Everywhere I go I either a) I see someone wearing Crocs b) come across a store selling Crocs or c) go onto a website where everyone is talking about Crocs. The other day, my father announced that he was thinking about buying a pair because "they would be good for sailing". Puh-lease, get some real deck shoes Dad. I don't understand why everyone is still so smitten with Crocs - are they like those dogs with the squashed faces, so ugly that they're cute. Or am I missing out on something, are these really comfort over style? Y'know, I think it's just an epidemic. But I wish it would die out already, these things have been around for ages now!

In case you didn't know what the original crocs look like, here is a pic of them:
And the other stuff...


Oh, but alas! Crocs are trying to target a new market, fashionistas. I will admit that these are a vast improvement from the others, but it still doesn't mean I'd be seen dead in them. And as for the Beach Crocs, is not having sand stuck between your toes worth tossing those glam wedges for? I absolutely adore the t-shirt on the right, it's from IHateCrocs.com and sums up how I feel about them. Oh and btw, the shoes are made out of recycled six pack holders!

Lookie! Mickey Mouse shaped holes... These are the Disney Crocs for kids on the left. Might I just add another thing that really annoys me - people wearing socks (yes, SOCKS) with their Crocs.

The next thing you know, theres a designer doing a collaboration. I'll bet that that's going to happen! Sigh...

Ick! Luckily the Croc trend hasn't taken hold of San Diego, where I live. This is how we spot out the tourists: they wear Crocs.
