Kurt, Shaun, Doug and I planned a little experiment at the staff retreat in Palm Springs. We would wear Crocs all week and take the abuse, hoping to make a few converts from our clan. We would talk about how comfortable they were, how they were worth the funky look. No one could talk about the gimic we were doing, no one could bash them on the side, we had to pitch that we were in love with them outright and they were the best thing since Wonderbread.
Anyhow, not sure if it worked, but I got a nice pair of sandals out of the deal, albiet they look SO akward and a bit too Euro-stylish for a big guy like me. Kurt can almost pull them off, Shaun actually makes them look cool, but Elliot and I just looked silly.
Oh well, at least they’re somewhat comfortable and totally fungal-resistant.
