The shoes I love to hate, and hate to love!
Gawd- I never thought I'd be a Crocs enthusiast. I used to think they were HORRIBLE! But let me tell you- my Achilles tendonitis has disappeared since I started wearing Crocs, and they are uber, UBER comfy! I first was into'd to them when I went to walk the dogs and there were no shoes on the porch but my son's girlfriend's Crocs- I slipped them on knowing it would only be a couple of minutes of wearing them- but as soon as I slipped my feet in them- I thought, "WOW! Now I know why people LOVE these!"
I was an immediate convert. So I've bought six pairs, and am happy as a clam with all of them. I *get* it. I don't care that Bill Maher thinks they are awful- (well, I kinda do too,) but they are fabulously comfortable and I don't care who judges me for wearing them! I'm a big woman who over-pronates, and they give terrific support. Durable, comfortable, no Achilles tendonitis- I'm SOLD. Thanks Crocs, I will have a love/hate relationship with you, but thank you for this great product!
