Crime of Fashion: Just when we thought Crocs were as bad as it got, here come the Cloggens…


You know what I hate most about Crocs? No, it’s not the fugly, primary coloured rubber (rubber shoes in the height of summer – eeeugh!), and it’s not even the way people will wear them with suits and other formal attire, as if there’s nothing in the world wrong with that. No, the thing I hate most about Crocs is the sheer number of lookylikies they’ve managed to spawn. Barely a day goes by without some horrendous, Croc-inspired offering showing up on my computer screen, and that’s never a nice thing to wake up to, now is it?

Speaking of "not very nice" things, these Cloggens are the latest Crime of Croc Fashion to come to The Fashion Police’s attention. Combining denim and rubber, I do believe these could even have managed to surpass the original in terms of sheer ugliness. Colour me amazed.

    THANK YOU! It seems like effing EVERYONE is wearing those and i’m like ‘no. how can you do it? they’re ugly.” yet it seems like you are the only person on the planet who agrees with me. One can only hope this is a quickly passing fad. I mean they’re gardening shoes. Ugly gardening shoes. Half the people wearing them don’t even garden. And even if they did, they still shouldn’t wear those shoes.

    You know what I saw the other day, passing a shop where they sell Birkenstocks and “comfortable shoes” like that? I saw this poster here:
    and I immediately thought of you! I’m goddamn sure you have a list of at least 10 good reasons not to wear crocs 🙂 What are they?
