Umm, cool, but I still won't those ugly things.

Rubber clogs are popular again. Shares of Crocs (CROX) soared, buoyed by renewed interest from teens. Currently, the stock is hovering around $25, more than doubling its share price from the beginning of the year.

I have a pair of Crocs slides. Similar to these:

https://www.zappos.com/p/crocs-class...il_1_sims_p_ab

I ONLY wear them at home! They are easily over 10 years old, they are pink.

They are great to slip on to go outside in the summer, don't have to worry about getting them dirty or muddy doing sloppy jobs, easy to wash off under the outside spigot.

PERFECT for dog washing! I have a hot/cold water spigot by the deck.

Tie dog to deck rail with a rope. Attach hose to spigot. Wet down, suds up, rinse off dog in less than 15 minutes with nice warm water! Attemp to dry off dog with numerous old bath towels. Untie dog. Give dog a treat. Watch dog run around yard top speed all crazy-happy. Rinse and dry soapy wet feet and Crocs.

They are like new except for a few bite marks courtesy of my cats, they like to play with them sometimes. They will probably last me the rest of my life. LOL

They are comfy too.

I thought I read recently that Crocs was filing for bankruptcy?

I used to think Crocs were ugly but now, they are the only shoe I can wear. I have a bad back and my feet hurt unless I'm wearing a very good, supportive shoe like a Croc. I'm wearing them right now. And not all Crocs have the same design, just look online and you'll see there are all different styles of Crocs.

They are a hideous shoe, but I own a pair that I wear them in the garden and around the house to do house work. It is a great shoe for these activities. I would not wear them out in public but I certainly wear them around the house.

I tried on a pair several years ago and they were too big. I am not completely against them, although I agree they look like cartoon shoes. I don’t think they were made for my hard to fit foot though, so I don’t give them any thought.

Crocs have more than one style. I'm not a fan of the traditional clogs, but I like some of their strappy sandals.

I thought people mostly wore them as gardening shoes...? I guess nowadays, Millennials and teens being the main consumers (according to the article), they fit in with the sort of anti-fashion/irony statement that's been popular for awhile: huge, clunky-looking glasses, huge, clunky-looking shoes. There's a certain logic to it.

They aren't just garden clogs.
They have a line of work shoes, sandals, wedges, tennis shoes, etc.
If you WANT to go with ugly they certainly have that covered, but they also have some cute stuff too.
