    Crocs are not stylish, but they are comfortable to wear. My feet started hurting when I was 12, and I finally had them operated on when I was 49. Now they need to be operated on again.

    What shoe would you suggest for a 56 year old woman who must baby her feet, yet wants to wear something attractive?

    Maybe shoe designers don’t really care about feet, only money? Is there one designer who studied the anatomy of the feet?

    They have charms on them. This is the sign of an advanced stage of croc infestation. The Manolo must have caught them too late for even his fabulousness to be able to do anything about it.

    The worst part about these Crocs is the cupcake charm. How dare these people desecrate the most noble and virtuous cupcake so! Outrageous!!! >:(

    So they are selling for $42. What is that in US dollars? Anyway, 56 cents is too much for the ugly shoes.

    And to the person who said they need comfortable shoes, try Merrell. I work in the U.S. Capitol and spend a lot of time running up and down marble staircases, and they’re the best I’ve found. And yes, I wear them with dress clothes, so you can make them work with whatever you’re wearing. The Mary Jane styles are cute.

    Too late, Manolo, too late. I am writing from Argentina and I am afraid the evil shoes have been around for a while. I’ve seen them in shop windows and on children. I have seen only one adult wearing them. But they are here, among us. Like the aliens, we don’t know whether they mean good or harm. Maybe one day we will wake up and everyone will have them on. Ay, the horror.

    I was dismayed to see the young Shiloh Jolie-Pitt being carried around town with charm-laden Crocs on her little feet.

    I’m afraid I must defect. While rather ridiculous on adults on people under the age of say 10 they are absolutely adorable.
