    Everyone complains about how their chooks peck at their Crocs. Your cat hates them. Why does everyone keep wearing them?

    Even sexpot Mario Batali can't make them look hawt.

    lol. That is funny!! I won't wear them, even in the coop. Hate those things! Make everone look like they are wearing swim fins! Thongs are my weakness though so maybe not any better. [​IMG]

    No one in this house has ever owned crocks either...they aren't good for your feet anyway, really good for starting off fungal infections
  5. Crocs are dead sexy. You people are just jealous.

    ok i will confess i am a croc-a-holic and admitting it is the first step.

    I have my pink fuzzy crocs for the coop they keep my feet warm and dry on the morning (ya know the dew on the grass is cold in the morning) the chicken poop does not get stuck in the soles and if i happen to step in a wad of poo that was buried i just hose'em out and throw the liners in the washer....they make it really easy to clean and help with bio security

    edited to add that I have like 5 pairs of them from my fuzzy ones to my normal ones and then the closed toe (aka the winter crocs, then ther is the mary janes and the thongs...

    I agree that they're ugly, but they are not called "Crocs" in this house. The kids call them "chicken shoes." [​IMG] They're ugly enough that I don't CARE if they get chicken poo on them.

    I have to admit tho, I do use them for gardening as well. [​IMG] After all, what's a little dirt and mud on them when there's already chicken poo on them?

    I LOVE MY CROCS!!!!!

    I was having horrible heel problems and my Dr. suggested them and I have never looked back. It really doesn't matter how bad they look if you are can walk.

    I have two pair of Knock-off other words, plastic garden shoes!!! I wear them all the time...well, not to work, but you know, other places!! One pair is bright pink and the other yellow..I wore the pink pair to the race track one time and my son was horribly embarrassed. [​IMG] [​IMG] ..course I thought that was a mother's revenge for all the teenage angst he caused me so I just smiled and wandered all over the track that night to show them off, lol!!!
