Crocs..

Love them or hate them they are so fucking comfortable..

Cultural history of Crocs..
https://www.wmagazine.com/story/crocs-jibbitz-shoes-cultural-fashion-history/amp

Here are my Crocs dressed up for pride..
The rainbow tiger Jibbet I made myself.
My Crocs are iridescent green-purple color shifting colors over a black croc shoe. I have gotten tons of compliments on them.



As for making my own jibbits some I made using printable shrinky dink sheets and J B plastic weld glue.


I made jeweled jibbits ,cat themed jibbits..
Been having a blast making my own.

Jibbits are so expensive.. I have some I bought but alot of jibbits I made myself.

The other Jibbets are my pride collection that I have been working on gathering for around a year..

9. Yeah when they first came out

I thought Omg, that's an ugly as sin, shoe.

I could not see why people wore them,let alone have a crocs fan club.

My sister got Crocs for her birthday,the tye dye ones. She sung the virtues of Crocs.

She had me try them on and I was amazed.

Went and got my first pair the ones in the photo. I saw someone wearing the iridescent ones at Wal Mart and I said to myself those are my Crocs.

After much searching and lots of out of stocks I found a place selling them in my size,with a warning this was the last pair in my size. I put in my order and I have no regrets,Crocs kick ass.

Can't wait to get those cool black and white ones next month.

10. I like their other shoes, too.

Not just the Croc-looking ones. I bought a pair of black dress pumps made by Croc and they are the most comfortable shoes I wear to work.

11. Didn't know they made pumps.

I'm a they with a masculine edge,so I won't be wearing pumps
but I'm going to tell my sister about it.

Ironically I was talking to one of my younger friends, at my house and he told me my Crocs were too damn cool. Apparently Crocs are cool now. So Crocs sell like crazy because they are trendy now.

16. PSA: Death on wet surfaces

Crocs on wet concrete slab are like unanticipated ice skates.
Just sayin'.
