What's wrong with this picture?

Yes, you guessed it - Isobel is wearing Crocs.

This is something I fought a long hard internal battle over.

The fact that Al Pacino wears them didn't stop me signing up to the 'when-I-see-Crocs-I-throw-up-a-little-in-my-mouth' club.

But, after going through a pair of expensive sandals in a day, I begun to see why they could be good for little ones who drag their feet while riding cars. My cousin Katy would have certainly stubbed her toe less if she'd had them growing up.

This little debate has gone on for more than a month; I discussed it with other Croc haters and we agreed we couldn't do it.

But, I was wavering.

Then when we went Camping and I saw Erica had given in and bought 'Vieve a pair, I knew it would all be ok.

I am still a gladihater though and will not be buying Crocs or Gladiators for myself. But I said that about fitflops...

I am a croc hater too. Last summer my ex got the girls each a pair of "faux crocs" (is that better or worse than the real things??) and I just decided not to make a huge deal about it.

I will always, always hate them, however.

I have always loathed Crocs, and sneared at other mums in the playground wearing them whilst I proudly wore my Kurk Geigers.
then I spent a 12.5 hour shift on delivery suite in Scrubs and theatre clogs and fell in love with the comfort at work, and this week I took delivery of a pair of bubblegum pink specialist crocs *blush* the shame of it! but honestly its like wearing pj's and slippers when you are in scrubs and crocs!

I'm glad there are others who feel unwell at the sight of crocs. I hate them so much but was begining to think I was the only one. So glad I'm not!
