Sounds like…

At the risk of offending people who actually like them, Crocs are damn ugly footwear.  And this comes from a girl who wears Birkenstocks with a love that knows no bounds.

When we bought our hot tub/spa recently, we realized we needed all sorts of things to make using it more convenient and enjoyable. (Isn’t that always how it goes?)  Terrycloth robes (have you ever tried putting a fleece robe on while soaking wet?), extra towels, outside hooks to hang towels and robes on, special tub toys to entertain the kids while soaking, acrylic pint glasses and drinkware (no real glass near the tub!), a  deck box to keep hot tub related stuff in outside, and appropriate outdoor/wet footwear.  After a little research on internet spa/pool forums, I discovered that most people recommended Crocs as their footwear of choice, since they give you a little lift and more protection in the snow than standard flip flops, while still being waterproof.

Anyway…

My kids freaking love them.  Goose carries his around the house, calling them — in his toddler-speak — a word that sounds a lot like Crocs, but without the “r.” Yeah, that word.  And he insists on wearing them as often as possible, no matter whether he needs footwear or not.

I am with you on the Croc-hate….for adults. I think they are totally adorable on the under-10 set and my kids live in theirs all summer long. I even got Krystal a “fur” lined pair for her birthday this year which she claims are the most comfortable thing she’s ever worn.

Love the photo!
