I have been hinting and hinting and hinting for quite some time that I would like some Crocs, but my husband has been very non-responsive to this. In fact, he's been downright against it, saying flat out that they look ugly. They look ultra comfortable, though, and there are days in which I'm working where I'm on my feet for over 6 or 7 hours.
I went to Nordstrom Rack with my sister and saw classic Crocs (Crocs Beach, I believe) for $10 less than MSRP, but to my disappointment the small size was too small in length and the medium size was too big. I say that with the caveat that both were way too wide for me to be comfortable.
Yesterday, my sister and I went to the mall, and we stopped by the Crocs kiosk. My sister pointed out to me the Crocs that she had (Crocs Malindi), which had a slimmer fit, more exact sizing, and were OH SO COMFORTABLE. I got them in Berry:
I also got a pair of Crocs Olivia in Brown:
Aren't they adorable? And so comfortable! I especially like the rhinestone charm detail. The kiosk had them in red, brown, black (though none in my size), and new gold. I was going to get them in red, because, well, red is my favorite color and honestly they're Crocs and should be bought in fun colors, but my sister convinced me that since I was already buying the magenta Crocs, I should get a more practical color that would go with more of my clothing. I showed them to my husband last night, who didn't realize Crocs came in different styles, and said that they looked cute and ultra comfortable. The funny part is that I told him about the red-brown debate, and he said I should have gotten the red ones. Sigh. I am very happy with my Croc purchase, though. I'm going to take one of these pairs out today on the town. I have every confidence they'll be as comfortable as they were when I tried them on.
