Crocs, what have you done?!
I am so completely disappointed in the direction Crocs has taken. These shoes have been my saving grace for years now, ever since I took the plunge and ignored the 'unfashionable' curse. Trust me, there are ways to rock your Crocs. BUT. This year, when I bought my replacement pair at the end of summer, I thought someone had slipped me a knockoff. Nope, they're the real deal. Except they're not. Cheaper material, cheaper, flimsier construction (they switched manufacturers, my last pair was made in China, this one says Mexico, could that be it?). The texture of the material and the design itself is less defined, cheaper-looking compared to last year's pair. And although I bought the same size, it is clearly a bit smaller compared to the older ones. And last but definitely not least, Crocs, you've left out one of the features that made slipping into a new pair one of life's little pleasures - those little nubs on the inside of the sole that gave your feet such a lovely massage when you wore them. Oh, they LOOK like they're still there, until you slip them on, and find out that where the nubs used to be, there is only an imprint instead of an actual raised nub. Did you think we wouldn't notice? Boo, Crocs, boo. Why mess with perfection? Lots of us dared to wear these babies over the recommendation of fashionistas worldwide, because they were so comfortable. But after taking away the exceptional comfort and durability, you've got nothing left. After so many years, the search begins anew. Color me upset, Crocs. Upset, and gone.
