Crime of Fashion: Camouflage Crocs


You know what puzzles me most about people who love Crocs? I mean, other than the fact that they voluntarily wear ugly plastic gardening shoes out in public, obviously. It’s the way that, after they’ve given the standard "But they’re SO COMFY!" argument (Yeah, yeah, so’s my nightie, but I wouldn’t wear it in public either. Next!), they normally resort to the old, "Well, MY KIDS LOVE THEM!" As if this is is somehow "evidence" that Crocs are, in fact, acceptable attire for adults.

Well, here’s a quick newsflash,folks: your kids may well love them, and good for them – they’re KIDS, they get to wear what they want. But adults who decide to dress like a five year old look like they have something wrong with them. Let the kids have their Crocs if you must, but never forget that you are an adult: you WILL be able to find comfortable shoes that aren’t made of brightly coloured plastic: we promise.

Sermon over. These are Crocs’ pink camouflage shoes. If only they could truly "camouflage" themselves, so we wouldn’t actually have to look at them, no?

    One should only wear camouflage if one is on a hunting trip or in the military. And pink is never an appropriate base color for a camouflage pattern.

    Crocs are hideous, and they’re not that comfortable either. I wore them on the first day of a vacation (at least mine were plain black for whatever that’s worth), and they left me with horrendous blisters that hurt the whole rest of the trip. Boo, Crocs!

    Camouflage is the ugliest fashion trend today. If I could go just one day not having to see somebody wearing hideous camouflage, it would be such a relief. But no, I see it everywhere. I can’t figure it out for the life of me.

    If you’re feeling moved enough to write an article about how much something simple, fun and carefree that somebody else is wearing truly upsets you, perhaps you need to decompress at your local day spa, or take a bubble bath this week. You are clearly winding yourself up over something very silly! You have no control over it, and who is it hurting if it makes others so happy? This is my favorite pair of shoes! I’m a professional adult with my own business, I pay my bills on time, I train in martial arts, and I have no kids. I simply enjoy bright colors, revel in whimsical things and concepts, I don’t oppose comfortable attire (and to be fair comparing a pair of shoes being worn in public to a nightie is a serious case of apples to oranges), and I love having fun! Not everyone needs to be so ho hum, nor up to date with fashion trends. A trend is simply an opinion – a big, mass opinion of a flock of like-minded people. Good for you, and thanks for… umm, “caring,” but don’t think you should worry yourselves to death over what we fun-loving individuals are doing to make our own selves happy. We don’t need an excuse for it, either 🙂 After all, it’s the little things in life!
