I just saw a segment in The Golf Channel’s Golf Central today about Croc shoes making their way to caddies’ feet. They claim to be comfortable because of the special rubber-like material that “melts” at body temperature and form a fit to the feet. The shoe has also become a fashion trend, and it’s the rage in Asia. I have yet to try this myself. Right now I prefer to stay away from it because it’s too trendy (Loafers and Espadrilles anyone?) and also, as my wife Yantie found this article on CNN, it’s potentially dangerous for kids. Consequently, my daughter Kaitlyn, will not be wearing Crocs any time soon. But what about the so-called comfort the caddies rave about? I may want to try it just for that reason. Don’t they use Crocs as gardening shoes? Maybe that’ll be the practical application for me. However, the thought of working in the garden without socks scares me, since I’ve been bitten by insects that caused massive swelling and itch on my toes.
