Who else has noticed that almost everyone has a pair of crocs? We remember a time when crocs were considered ugly and only worn by doctors on call, nowadays crocs are so common, that half the people in any store you walk into are wearing them. We are all left wondering ‘why do we love crocs now?’
The design is unusual and may leave some scratching their heads, but we’ve been able to come up with6 reasons why we love them here:
Celebrities started wearing Crocs … even on the Red Carpet
Celebrities like Ariana Grande, Pharell, and Nicki Minaj began wearing crocs, and celebrities are the purveyor of what is cool and trendy.
Crocs add variety to your wardrobe and outfits
There are crocs slippers, sandals and other varieties of crocs. The splash of colour and the different designs make you want to get one for yourself.
Crocs are practical
Crocs are designed to be a practical footwear choice. They feature air holes for great cooling and draining ability, which allows them to dry quickly if they become wet outdoors. Indoor Crocs feature a warm fuzzy lining, when combined with the slight height of the sole that allows for your feet to be kept off the cold of the ground, they make an ideal choice for indoor wear in winter. The strap design allows for a versatile fit, providing secure comfort in a sandal style, or flipped back to become a slip-on shoe. Now you understand why we love crocs?
Crocs are versatile
Crocs are a versatile footwear choice, not only in terms of design but purpose for wear. They are popular as work shoes (with the brand even offering a workwear range). They are non-slip, making them a safe choice for baristas, waiters, other restaurant staff, medical staff, cleaners and more. Their design is wipeable, making them easy to clean should any fluids spill on them. They also make a great vacation or poolside shoe. Great for garden wear, whether it’s for relaxing or gardening purposes. Currently, they are a super fashionable choice for influencers, so you may want to just wear them as part of a statement outfit. Their versatility is remarkable.
Crocs are for ultimate Comfort
When it comes to comfort Crocs really are an unparalleled clog footwear choice. They are made with a tough but flexible closed resin material called Croslite, which is trademarked by the brand. It feels like a thick foam material, that offers your feet great support. I have worn my Crocs on long 9-hour work shifts before and found them to be a very comfortable choice for standing all day.
- Crocs are customizable
Nowadays, you can customize your crocs and add as many things that represent your personality on it. The process of customizing something adds a special effect to it and that makes many people want to get one.
Even though some people vow that they’d never be caught wearing crocs, we can’t deny this footwear is still quite popular. We attribute this popularity to its practicality, versatility, comfort, range of designs, customizable design, long-lasting material, hard-wearing sole, and visibility in the fashion trend cycle (worn by supermodels, fashion icons, rappers and other musical artists). Maybe you should consider getting a pair if you don’t have one and you won’t wonder ‘why we love crocs’ anymore.
