When I first started seeing people walking about in hideous, brightly-colored, plastic shoes, and found out that this new trend was called "Crocs", I said, "I would never wear those! They are so ugly!" But then, I started liking them. And then they came out with their "Mary Jane" version. Oooh, I could wear those for gardening!
When I was out with my family the day after Christmas, we serendipitously walked into a shoe store that had their Crocs on sale. And guess what? I walked out with a pair (after paying for them, of course)! I can't wait to wear them this summer; obviously holey shoes wouldn't be very great for walking about in the snow! Hehe! I bought mine in black - if the store had had pink in stock, I would have gotten pink!
