Have you gotten hooked on Croc sandals, shoes or boots by any chance? I got a pair of 'Georgie' boots this winter and they may be the ugliest shoes I've ever owned, but they are very comfortable. I will definately get a pair of their hideous sandals as well!

I have two pairs of the Beach style Crocs. They are so ugly, but so comfortable! I can't believe they have become so popular. I mostly just wear mine on Disney vacations- they are great theme park shoes when you are walking around the parks 10 miles or so per day!

I totally agree, they are brilliant! I love that they are coming out with more styles now. I think everyone that gives them a chance loves them.

When I moved to Oklahoma a year and a half ago, I saw for the first time the Croc Sandal. And I thought it was the ugliest shoe I have every seen. And for some reason, everyone in this state loves to wear them! They are actually a beach sandal...but there is no beach here....it is landlocked. ha ha So, I had to wonder why so many people wore them. Then I finally asked someone why. And they said it was the most comfortable shoe. Hmmm...I guess I might have to try sometime. LOL

Try 'em, come on! They are ugly, but once you have them molded to your feet you will want to wear them all the time.

I think the ugliest shoes I ever owned were these wood and leather clogs I had back when I was in like the 5th grade..I don't know why I wanted them, I don't know why I wore them..they made so much noise and were just so heavy..they didn't go with anything I wore..when I think about it now, I see why I was laughed at for those..

We must be around the same age because I too remember a clogs craze in 5th grade. I look back on that and shake my head!

I was in the place I bought my Georgie Croc boots this afternoon and saw the new Mary Jane's. A friend also has the ballet slippers. I think I will just go with the standard sandals.

They would have been something my mother bought for me when I wasn't shopping with her. They were a pair of baby blue runners and my friends slagged me about them until they wore out. I made sure they wore out VERY quickly!

I bought some furry boots that everyone thinks is ugly other than me. I hate Crocs though. They make me sick just looking at them and now Sketchers is making a similar type of shoe for kids that they can customize. Crocs are one thing that I will NEVER own.

In the 70's we wore what we called platform shoes. God they were ugly clanky, chunky and not to mention hard to walk in. But they were the trend and every one of us growing up back then owned them. Shesh we really had such outrageous fashion sense in the 70's. I cringe every time I get an old year book out and look at us.

Yes I have a pair of "ugly brown" croc sandals. I love wearing it hehehe ....feels like I'm not wearing anything at all on my feet. I love the feeling of freedom and comfort it gives me.

I won't buy shoes that I think are ugly. Why bother if I know I won't wear them? But I have seen some hideous looking sports shoes that people try to give me. Yucks!! :P
