How do they hold up? Wasn't really looking for durability with the crocs as they're so cheap but these look to be $100+.

My wife has 3 pairs on Danskos as well, and they have been her favorite for the hospital for a few years now. Not attractive, but much more so than Crocs. They do hold up very well, check out zappos.com for them.

Crocs are living proof that how gullible and sensitive to fad people are...

I think Crocs are ugly, but they could also be dangerous for foot health. Check out this quote from Slate:
Quote:
"I'll get people with strained arches because they've been running around in Crocs for five days," said Arnold Ravick, a doctor of podiatric medicine in Washington, D.C., and a spokesman for the American Podiatric Medical Association. "When it comes to shoes, people mistake comfort for support. Comfort is fool's gold—a soft gushy shoe that makes your arches collapse," he told me. "Crocs are popular because they're inexpensive and interchangeable. For people with certain problems, they can be a good shoe. Are they good for your foot, in general? No."

They do have holeless versions for chefs, but there's no excuse to not wear a real chef's clog unless you're trying to make a brand out of yourself, as Batali has. They are ridiculously easy to wash in a dishwasher or medical sterilizer though, which also means that the crocs never need to leave the workplace. I would be conflicted if I was a nurse or chef. No one else should be.

About half the women where I work now wear Crocs. They've even invaded my usually sensible family. No amount of mocking is working...

I didn't know Crocs also made flip flops. I found these on Lord and Taylor's website. They look like they could be pretty comfy!

My wife wears them to work, where she is on her feet most of the day, anywhere from 12-24 hours. She could give a damn about looks when faced with that.


My wife cuts hair. She has several pairs, but the better looking ones (sort of - I'd say "less ugly really), the Prima. They have given her less hip and back pain than any other shoes so far, amazingly, even with the serious hip problems she has.

Interestingly enough, my wife had dreadful luck with the Dansko shoes she has used. Just uncomfortable over hours of standing.

My wife found a pair recently (don't remember the model), she said they were very comfortable.

I saw a guy at Parisians the other day buying some. However, I feel guilty when publicly mocking people (most of the time). But seriously. A man has no business buying these awful shoes.

All the damn Russians do carry the freaking plastic bags. The latter pisses me off to no end since I see it all the time.
