The Footwear Anti-Christ Has Possessed My Soul

You can all light a candle and say a prayer for PeaceBang, who is sitting at her desk wearing a pair of GREEN CROCS.

I can hear you gasping across two continents and eight nations (Great Britain, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Spain, New Zealand, the United States and Canada).

I know. I know. But they were on sale for $4.99 at the Christmas Tree Shop and I needed them for gardening and then I put them on because my feet hurt and lo and behold, I am wearing Crocs. I, the Anti-Croc Crusader. I, the Official Hater and Despiser of Crocs.

People, I am humbled.

But my feet feel great.

Yah. For me, it's Tevas.

Our soles are weak.

Get thee behind me, Croc-tan!

Mrs Philocrites wishes to add that Crocs are a "gateway shoe."

I always suspected that someday you would eventually succumb to temptation, especially after I noticed you ogling a pair at that back street shoe store in Portsmouth. But we forgive you PeaceBang. Remember, it's not the shoe; it's the foot that fits it....

OK, sometimes it's the shoe....

I love my crocks--I got a gold pair, which are sort of fancy. My grandmother always wore little gold shoes and pears to dress up her red sweat suit, and I'm following in the family tradition I suppose.

Just don't wear them for liturgical use, or with professional attire.

A "gateway shoe"! That's priceless! Frankly, PB, I don't know what to say. You went from praising Prada to Crocs??? Dear God. I'm going to have to go self-medicate by buying some Prada shoes. Get thee to an exorcist, and become an ex-crocist, before it's too late...

When I was a hospital chaplain I got into a conversation with the nurses about which shoes are easiest to wash poop off of. Crocs won hands down.

I, too, PeaceBang, have succumbed to the temptation of Crocs. However, I have found that the Mary Janes are a little cuter--they are not nearly as wide as the original version.

Enjoy, and say, "Ahhhhh."

They are totally hideous! And I can't stop wearing them!

But ... Jibbitz!!??? My Lord, I can get the Peace signs and the exclamation points ("bangs") and make PEACEBANG CROCS!!

Ai-yah! But Peacebang my dear, you shake my faith to the very core! I just finished moving (just before my wedding) and DUG OUT MY IRON so that I might be a pressed and ironed hospital chaplain in my cute little Zeetas... I tried so hard to COORDINATE and be a cute chaplain! And here I find you gone to Crocs. So... Can't I get a pair for those midnight duties, now? Please, please?

an observation....

There are more comments on the Crocs then there are about the pradas.

Which would Jesus wear?

LizardEater, honey, Tevas are not in the same class as Crocs.

Tevas are just freaking EVIL. Say no, dearie. Can't you swing something like these, at least??:

Girls, girls. No one should be wearing Crocs, Tevas OR Keenes on the job. Not even midnight chaplaincy duty, when your Zeetas will be just fine.
Now stop fighting.

Some days comfort trumps all. Peace be on you and your crocs. Easy, of course, for me to be forgiving because I have a pair as well, used when I'm standing in the kitchen and doing massive quantities of cooking, and when I'm gardening. Now, if they could put the croc interior into an elegant 2 inch heel black pump...
