Should guys wear Crocs?

No way. I don't believe that men should wear sandals (outside of flipflops at the beach) or clogs either. That said, I am an extremist on this issue. If "comfort" is the main issue here, why doesn't everyone just wear bedroom slippers and spare me the sight of their toes?

I have a friend who insists they are the most comfortable "sandals" he has and his wife loves them because they're the only "sandal" that doesn't make his feet sweat and, therefore, stink. He swears by them.

 

I haven't bought a pair, however. Even though he tried to sell how good they are to me.

I will give men a pass if they work in the medical field. I know plenty of surgeons that wear them in the OR. They say crocs are comfortable and as stated before their feet don't sweat. I would not give anyone a hard time knowing that they could have their hands inside of me.

Go ahead and wear what you want, but there's so way I'm wearing them. I think what bugs me most is that the guys I see are always wearing ones that are orange, lime green or some other bright color.

No one that has hit puberty should wear crocs...ever. I don't care if they are the most comfortable thing in the world. They look awful.

We had a discussion at work about these one day and we went on their website. I can't believe how many different styles of them they make. They are all awful, but the worst that I saw were meant to look like a dress shoe, yet they still had those stupid holes all over them. Any adult who wears them might as well have a bluetooth on and show everyone how big of a tool they really are.

Funny this topic comes up today because just last night I was out to dinner with my mom and saw a guy wearing crocs. I thought to myself "I didn't know guys could wear those.".

I will slightly back off my previous statement, making an exception for yard work. That seems like an acceptable use. Also allowable:

 

Chew toy for dog

Quick in/out shoe (taking out trash, checking mail, getting paper)

Yes. Men not only can wear Crocs, they SHOULD wear them. It should be required wearing just once for all you Croc haters out there! I blew out my knee and had to have surgery. After that, every shoe I wore exacerbated the knee problem. Crocs? Helped me walk again! Geez you guys are a bunch of Croc-o-phobes. Must be something Freudian!

my cousin bought some for the hospital, but it did take us some searching to find the ones without holes on the top, as he needed those for any blood splatter.

 

i'm also going to have to stand up for the hiker community and say that crocs are awesome. they are almost universally worn by long-distance hikers because they let the feet swell after a long hike, and it's a huge plus that they're also about the lightest camp shoes you can buy. Hiking was where I was introduced to them, so this is the first i've ever heard that they were thought of as female footwear.

 

of course, I'm a socks-and-sandals wearer, so i suppose i have no giant regard as to what might be kosher in social situations.

I would love to wear crocs. I would also love to wear sweat pants on the town. Lastly, I would love to never have to shave or comb my hair but as a functioning member of society one must sacrafice a little for the sake of others and I am the kind of guy that will subject oneself to make sure others don't have to put up with the stinky hobo walking the streets.

 

Also, I don't shave anymore.
