    They're quite comfortable, I wear them as an alternative to flip flops because I hate anything open toed.

    Exactly. Who would buy them for the looks? 99% of shoes designed specifically for comfort are FUGLY. They're so popular because they are cheap as hell and comfortable (from what I've been told, I have never tried any on), and also because they are unfortunately trendy.

    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.

    This has been discussed before but many people are using them for work, looks be damned. I, as well as a majority of my classmates, have a pair to wear during rotations. Who knows if it's just an elongated fad but I now see them as part of my uniform along with scrubs and my coat.

    You need Danskos. I just got a pair and they are life savers.

    I saw one of the pathologists wearing a pair a few weeks back and couldn't figure out what they were. 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+.

    An immediate banning, or at least for the mods to restrict you to SW&D.
