Have you heard about Crocs shoe? Some might think that it’s the fugliest looking shoe ever and some will consider ’em to be the most brilliant shoe ever built (haha maybe I exaggerated). I was first a former and now a latter.
I first laid my eyes on Crocs shoe a few years back when I was shopping at 1Utama. My first impression? Blehhh, so hideous. Would never ever own this ‘ugly’ shoe. Period. That was how I think then. And now? Now I love Crocs till-death-do-us-part.
Come let me tell you the story on how I felt in love with Crocs.
One day, out of the blue dad came home from holiday with a pair of ‘FAKE’ black Crocs. It was my dads’ but it became my mom’s favourite shoe quickly. She can be seen wearing Crocs almost all the time. She would chatter on and on and on about how light and comfortable Crocs is. And of course she is our family’s first Crocs lover.
Just out of curiosity I decided to try my dad’s Crocs. What is so great about ‘the ugly shoe’ that all the testimonials I read at Crocs’s website are all positive reviews? I became a Crocs lover instantly the moment I slipped my feet into the comfortable sole. It’s so light weight and soft. It feels as if you’re not wearing a shoe! I know this is just a replica but it’s good enough to change my view on Crocs shoe.
So now I’m looking forward to purchase my first ‘original’ Crocs. These are the 3 designs that I like; The Beach, The Professional and The Endeavour. I favour The Professional as this model has closed-top protection (not as many holes as The Beach) and it has port holes at the side (compared to The Endeavour which has none) for water and sand to pass through.
The Beach, the original Crocs model.
Available in 16 colors.
Available in 5 colors.
