I have big feet, size 12. They’re wide, too. It’s really hard for me to find shoes.
Being a teacher, I stand all day long on what is essentially a tile floor on top of a cement slab.
I wear my Crocs clogs most of the time every single day.
I’ll admit that they aren’t the most fashionable shoes, but they are wide enough, they make my feet feel good, and they don’t smell bad even if I wear them every day.
In case you’re wondering, this is not a product review. I have paid (full price) for every pair of Crocs I own, and I have never received any incentives or payments from Crocs.
Back to my shoes.
I bought a few pairs of girlie Crocs for BlogHer last year, but they aren’t wide enough, and they made my feet hurt by lunchtime.
So I stick to my (unattractive but so comfortable) clogs. They’re ventilated, they have a strap around the heel so that they don’t slip off, and they keep my feet feeling good all day long.
I like them so much that I have identical Crocs in black, blue, and brown. (If I had more money, I’d have more colors. I bought these colors to match my pants. Every pair of pants I own coordinates nicely with either black, blue, or brown.)
The only problem is that the black, blue, and brown aren’t all that different.
So it’s not a stretch to imagine how, in the pre-dawn shadows, while juggling my sobbing 40-pound 2-1/2-year-old child, my purse, my iPhone, and my lunchbag, I put on two different Crocs.
It’s not a stretch to imagine how I ended up at school like this:
It’s not like one has a heel and the other doesn’t. Or one has a heel strap and the other doesn’t. They’re the same.
They feel the same.
The same Crocs shoe, probably made on the same mold from the same material.
In a different color.
