My Canadian side loves to wear the Crocs.

Sometimes I catch Canoogermama with them on.

They're really the only apparel we share.

I wouldn't go so far as to call it gay. One person's trash is another's treasure.

Had mine for three years. They float, are easy to wash, and slip on when I need to remove my work boots to run errands. The leather in the boots obsorb the hog crap smell so they are not always the best choice for public display.


I prefer socks b/c they will pull the haur out of the tops of my feet.

All about comfort and function.

Crocs are less gay than worrying what the consenus is as to whether or not shoes are OK. If they're comfortable (they are extremely comfortable), wear them.

I love mine. Comfortable as hell, particularly with the nerve damage in my left leg that makes my foot feel somewhere between electrocuted and on fire.

If you want to know what shoes are comfortable without regard to "cool", take notice of what folks who are on their feet constantly wear. I learned about Crocs from the nurses who tended to me after my back surgeries. They spend all day on their feet and they love them. Obviously, they aren't ideal for every situation, but for downtime, they're only outclassed by bare feet.

Try some on-if they're comfortable, wear them. Only a flaming homo's "masculinity" is dictated by what they wear, and only a flaming homo gives a shit what another man thinks about his shoes.

After the above mentioned pink Croc thread my wife came home with a pair of pink knock offs as a joke.

I've thrown them on a couple times to run out to the car or garage to get something. That's it. I'd never wear them in public but they are comfortable and a quick slip on to run outside in.

Pink crocs are the most tactical thing you could wear, if you were around for the "guy wearing pink crocs kills a gangbanger" thread you'd know what I mean.

Didn't that guy kill him with his own gun?


Yes he did.

Wrestled the gun away and the perp tried to run away, fell over his baggy pants and got shot.

Crocs are only acceptable if you wear pink ones and kill a man the day after you buy them.



That was an awesome thread.

One of the biggest hardasses I know wears them with wool socks folded down.

[flame suit on]

I wear them around the house. They are comfortable and fast on/off. I'm an adult, married and secure in my heterosexuality. I don't give a flying fuck what some other dudes think of my shoes.


ETA: At least mine are OD green.

I love mine. I have a pair I keep on while at home and another pair in my offshore bag. About 80% of the guys that work out on the rigs wear them.
Link Posted: 7/12/2008 10:24:24 PM EDT
I have an old pair of skecher knock-off sandals that are falling apart. Use them a lot for camping and surf-fishing, when shoes or boots aren't right. Like wandering down to the beach and into the surf on a rocky beach and pulling on when going to see a man about a dog.

Flip-flops won't stay on in the surf.

If I can find a cheap pair of crocs when these finally fall apart I may try them. Look like they would do fine in the surf.

I quit worrying about what others think about what I wear in junior high. If it works and feels good, fuck 'em.

They're fine. I wouldn't wear them to church, but they have their uses.

If you are hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, you are allowed one (1) pair for camp shoes
Link Posted: 7/12/2008 10:51:40 PM EDT
Only if you are taking a shower outside with a solar shower and you have no sandals.

Isnt caring what other men wear, kind of gay?


I wear them at work (work in health care). They suck ass though, my feet and back let me know all about how crappy they support my feet. Running shoes work better for me. I am on my feet for 12 hour straight, If I am lucky I will get a ten minute break about 8 hours into my shift.


I had to wear them the last two shifts because my brother in laws dog took a shit in my work shoes.



anyways, yes they suck. But I do not give a shit if you fashion pansies think its gay.

Ugly as hell, goofy looking as hell, but the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn.

You guys with the knockoffs don't know what you're missing. I bought a pair of knockoffs as well and after loving those decided to try a real pair. Holy shit, what a difference! I wear my Bajas everywhere.
Link Posted: 7/13/2008 1:48:16 AM EDT
I don't give a shit if anyone thinks they're gay. Obviously fashion is a big deal to all you guys that don't like they way they look. I couldn't care less. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I work at a hospital and they are perfect for being on my feet for 10 hour shifts on hard floors. I have the type that have no holes in the tops. They also clean up easily.

For around the house they are awesome, and insanely comfortable.

Belmont,

How about a pic of the Mrs. modeling her crocs. An ankle down shot is all we need.

I have a pair of crocs and I am a flaming heterosexual.

I do. There is an 80 year old woman in my church that wears a pair as well.

I have a personal policy to never wear any footwear outside of my own property that I wouldn't be able to run in.

OK, beat me up for this but I have two pairs.

When I'm backpacking, I have a set dangling off the back of my pack. First of all, they weigh a mere 10 oz. Secondly, they are nice for water crossings when I don't feel like sloshing sround in my hikers for a few more miles. They offer just enough protection to get me across and they then dry very quickly. Third, at night around a fire, far away from car campers, RV'ers and weekend warrior Sunday hunters, they are great to do camp chores in, airing out your tired dogs. Works best with a fresh pair of the thickest hiking socks, a killer view and some good sipping whiskey.

They fare equally as good for canoe or kayak camping for all the same reasons.

ETA- Mine are, of course tactical black

Crocs are perfect for pool, beach light yard work.

Shoes.

Crocs are never ok for men, but the men I see wear them are metrosexual and not real men anyway.

It seems most of the "crocs are gay" people live in colder climates... 95+ degrees and 95%+ humidity changes the way you think about some things.

If you are teh ghey, they are ok I guess. But unless you crave cock, they are not ok

Great that was the effect I was foing for. Don't worry I will be changing it again soon enough.
Link Posted: 7/13/2008 8:11:49 AM EDT
I got a pair for free at a sporting event. I wear them in two circumstances:

1) Going to/from hockey. If you smelled my equipment, you would understand.

2) Mowing the lawn.

The primary advantage is that they don't smell and I can hose them off. Other than that, leave them at home.
