~Never say "Never"~

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!

I was given two pairs of this style in dark brown and black--and I have to say, I wear them out and about every day.

So comfortable, even with socks, and you almost don't notice these with the slim profile.

I have some of the regular ones and I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine. They are so comfy! I also wear mine with socks sometimes. I would like to get some of the Mary Janes and also the flipflop kind, someday.

Enjoy your Crocs!!

I have a pair of fake ones that I absolutely love. They're my inside shoes (Canadians don't wear shoes in the house, but I have to have some - so I wear my "Crocs")I'd really like to get a pair of the real Mary Jane ones, but they're way expensive up here.

Crocs look great with hand-knit socks. I would like to get a pair of Crocs, too.

I have a coupla pairs of real Crocs & a few pairs of fake ones & all in different colors. I even have a pink pair. They are so comfy. I'd love to have some of the Mary Jane ones but they aren't as wide as the regular ones & are too narrow for my wide feet. I sure wish they'd put the Mary Jane ones out in wide widths...

A Note From Theresa said...

My Husband will never let me have a pair of Crocs, he thinks they are ugly. lol

LOL I'm still in the "never" stage, Tammy. They are making different styles now so we'll see.

Oh Tammy, those are cute! I actually saw an older gentleman wearing crocs in the snow when we were in MI last week for Christmas. I think you need to christen them with a pair of hand knit socks. ERIN :)

I just got my first pair of Mary Jane Crocs for Christmas - in brown! Love them! I have a black pair of the original ones that I have just about worn out! I have learned that if you wear warm socks (like the ones you make), you can even wear them in the snow! I live in Ohio and had them on today!

Good luck with your Etsy sales! I just entered the world of being an entrepreneur myself. My kids are getting older and after years of being a stay-at-home mom, I am venturing into a whole new world (www.steepedinstyleteas.com or www.steepedinstyleteas.blogspot.com)

Here's to a great 2008! ~ Amy

Hi Tammy! I also used to think that Crocs were ugly until I got myself a pair. They are cozy! Blessings!
