I had a pair of Crocs as a kid, but never got another pair once I grew out of them. Like so many, I fell into the "Crocs are the worst" mindset (where it's fashionable to hate them). Having a two year old, I was looking for a pair of slip on shoes that were more comfortable than flip flops. After hours of searching, I remembered my childhood Crocs and decided to give them a chance and I'm SO glad I did. I don't even care that they look a little silly (but really not bad!) because they're so stinkin comfortable. Now I can slip them on to play outside with my daughter, run to the store, or play in the lake. They're awesome!
