I was never a fan of these funny looking shoes, and always thought in the back of my mind when I saw someone wearing them in public, "what a clown!" I came about ordering them when my old boat shoes, that I wear to do my yard work, finally gave out. I have a pair of Croc Flops that are really comfortable, I figured why not give the Clogs a shot. After all I'll just be cutting the grass and weed whacking my back yard in them. Now that I've worn them for a few days, I'm kicking myself in the butt for not trying them 10 years ago! These things are soooo light and comfy, I might even forget I have them on and get caught out and about while I'm running me errands, and I might not even care!
