What a Croc!

My pursuit of a comfy, non-grandmotherish shoe continued yesterday at Super Shoes. While the other items at this place are not my thing—scrubs, boots, and outdoorsy wear—I do like to make it a stop on a shoe hunt. I’ve found some winners there over the years. Also, did you know that you can save your receipts and get a hefty discount with them? I’ve been saving for a while now and yesterday was my big day to cash in! I decided get a “free” pair… of… Crocs.

If you read my comment from that previous blog post, you know that I’m not the most avid of Croc fans and I question their contribution to fashionable footwear. Regardless, I felt OK getting these things since I wasn’t really paying for them. On top of that, I didn’t go with a traditional Croc. Instead, I bought the ones you see here.

Yeah, way cuter than the original Croc and they provide a good bit of comfort. And I can actually walk in them, unlike clown Crocs.

After I got them home, I tried them on with a pair of dress pants just to see what they would look like. As afraid as I am to admit it, they might be passable for work as long as my pants are long enough.

Yup, I would wear these to work. (from shoesonashoe string.com)

So now I’m going to take a chance on a pair of YOU by Crocs that I found on Piperlime.com. Since the return shipping is free, I figure it worth a shot. I think these shoes are pretty sassy and I’ve been eyeing them for a while but in the past, the price was not in my range. Now they are. Go me!

As a good will gesture, I’m going to clean out the closet and donate a bunch of shoes. (Hopefully the hubby read that.)
