Whoa! Look at me blog! I never have understood this fad of wearing gardening shoes. I remember the first time I encountered the fad one summer in Alabama. I was so confused as to why kids were wearing my neighbor's gardening shoes. A few years later one of my cousins was singing their praises because "they can stand up to foot sweat and can get in the water and still don't smell!" However, as with any trend, in order to keep up with past success, your have to evolve products. I don't think the "can get wet and won't smell" theory holds up to these. Doesn't fur go against the defining characteristics of crocs? I also enjoy that they're not stopping at furry ones! If these, these, or these, were REAL shoes, I may be interested, but probably not these. I especially enjoy the product description of one:
''Product Information:
  • Crocs™ states these shoes should fit very loosely. The sides of your foot should not really touch the sides of the shoe. Your toes should never make contact with the front of the shoe. (Basically these shoes are supposed to be so big that you trip over them)
  • Once you have centered your foot on the footbed: You should have about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch of space in front of your toes, behind your heel and when you lift the strap you should be able to comfortably get your finger between the strap and heel.
  • 'Off Road' has a rugged design for your active lifestyle. (I was unaware that foam was appropriate for any "off road" activities)
*End Rant*
