Croc shoes. Can a real man wear them ??

#1
Two of my wee ones wear Crocs and decorate them with thingys that you push through the holes.

Have been thinking of getting a pair for myself. The kids swear by them and say they are very comfortable.

Would not be going for a Bubblegum Pink colour but probably Olive Drab or a Stone colour. Mrs K thinks that I am too old, but I have seen Glastonbury tree huggers 20 years older than me wear them.

Or am I facing a mid life crisis and is wearing Crocs akin to me going out and buying a Raleigh Grifter or Chopper and trying to recpature youth ?

Are any fellow Arrsers wearers of Crocs ?

They might go quite well with that beige sweater of yours with the elbow pads, and the 'it ain't half hot mum' shorts, and that rather snazzy handkercheif you wear on your head on sunny days.

Like earrings, those shoes should never be worn by men over the age of 20.

So wrong there is even a facebook group against them.

from a females point of view you have two options,

1/ Go for a dark colour, i.e black or navy and hope no one will notice or

2/ Go for something loud like bright green or yellow and smack anyone who sniggers :)

My Mum wears orange ones, mainly at the beach, going to and from gym classes and swimming and couldn't give a monkeys, although she does find it a bugger to drive wearing them, and will drive bare footed.

You're gay just for asking and not knowing how wrong that is.

Cheap copies from "The Camp Shop" in Brecon(£8 IIRC) ,are legal for shower use IMO !

Acceptable on the beach or at a pool party only. They make yer feet sweat like 'uck tho'.


Get pastel colours and everybody'll think your avant garde. :twisted:

I'm going to echo what a previous poster said and say they are good for in the showers only. Well, better than getting athletes foot. And my cheap knock-off ones were only 3 quid :D

No Gay would ever wear such shoite. Neither should any heterosexual man, these are purely for fatties.
To the starter of this thread, give yourself a fcuking talking to.
You heard it here first Killaloe - they're so gay that even gay people refuse to wear them.

You're in Gok city here bloke. Forget having a word with yourself, just get some rope and learn to make a noose.

I've polished mine and am going to traipse around Covent Garden this afternoon wearing them.

I regard my choice of footwear as avant-garde and a feck sight smarter than anything Dashing Bellend has in his wardrobe - so feck all you plebs with no sartorial elegance; take a leaf out of this sophisticated bloke-about-town's book and get some smart chick-pullers.

Plus you can go straight from the pub into the shower without taking your kit off, dog-shit washes off easily and tramps give you a wide berth.

I may be in a minority of one here, but they are bang on for weather like this and I am anticipating bringing Lily Allen home for the evening on the back of my elegance and sophistication. SITREP on that TFO.

Not acceptable and screamingly gay. You might as well acquire a matching gentleman friend to go with them.
