So I’m basically in agreement with the Manalo about the crocs. But they are super comfy (unless you try on a knock off pair at Meijer – eee! those were scary) so they will probably continue to be a staple of american footwear for awhile longer. Not forever mind you, but for awhile.
They should however be religated to anywhere you would wear a flip flop or to small children. Here are some appropriate uses – a garden clog, a shoe to wear after a sport practice, a house slipper, and maybe the nursing profession (not like scrubs are a fashion statement anyway.)
If you hate clogs but like the cute little “buttons” jibbitz makes, they do make some braclets that you can decorate as you like:
