Several years ago I hurt my foot, stretching out a tendon and screwing up some other stuff. My doc recommended Crocs for wear around the house. I'd always thought that they were kids shoes or for adults that would otherwise be wearing flipflops or velcro closure shoes. They really helped my recovery and I still wear them in the house a lot and occasionally out into the yard. That's as far as I'll wear them, though. Feet and eyes I try to protect as much as possible. Once either are injured you're pretty much screwed. Funny story about those little decorations. When my 19yr old was 3 or 4 she had several pairs of Crocs. We were on vacation somewhere and a little shop has Crocs and a jar of the little add on hole plugs decorations. No licensed or trendy designs like eventually flooded the market, just flowers and ladybugs and such. Wife and daughter thought it was neat and bought a handful. When we got home we couldn't go out in public locally anywhere in North Georgia or the Chattanooga area without a few dozen people stopping us to ask what they were and where we got them. It was so bad some places that I would remove them and stick them in my pocket. We were in Dahlonega and some lady tried to buy them off of us for like $20 a decoration (we'd paid maybe $1 a piece for them). She actually followed us around and had other people offering too. They were so aggressive that we had to leave. My wife probably still has those Crocs and the decorations somewhere, I'll have to ask.
