Crocs are not attractive footwear. Crocs do not make good cell phone cases. Crocs are hideous, revolting and should not be sold in any English speaking country. I was so disgusted yesterday when I was presented with the option of a Croc case for my cell phone… and an assortment of little "add-ons" to make it even more ugly. Crocs have no purpose trying to keep anything safe. The material is better suited for use as a laundry basket… something that needs ventilation for proper function. For Croc supporters, don’t even give me an argument about wearing them at the fucking beach, if I am going to be in contact with that much water and sand, I am not going to be wearing something that will let that much sand and water in, but isn’t open enough to let it all go back out, and plus, they are ugly.
A few weeks ago I heard a request for comments segment on the radio asking listeners to call in and state what they thought of men wearing Crocs. I don’t think it matters what gender you are, Crocs are ugly and a turn off. For a while I contemplated the attractiveness of sandals…. usually in relation to the hot guy wearing them, but often still found myself attracted to the guy wearing them. With Crocs that isn’t even a consideration. If a guy is wearing Crocs, I am turned off to him. As for the whole uni-sex thing with Crocs, OMG, Men are men (mostly) and Women are women (or lesbians). There is no room for gender neutrality in footwear. Men and women have different needs as far as the shape, height, ventilation and width of footwear.
I have two options at the beach:
Be a man, don’t wear plastic shoes.
