I wore Crocs, again

I did a social experiment for the Paw Print last year where I wore crocs for a week, just to see how my peers would react or if they would care. I have barely worn that pair of Crocs since. They weren’t as I expected – on one hand they are comfortable, but on the other they make your feet sweaty.

When it comes to dances or any type of formal event, many people, including myself, sacrifice comfort for style. On one hand I understand, I’m here for a good fit. Wearing crocs showed me you can get the best of both worlds.

Junior-Senior banquet was on April 7th, and I went with my friend Ben. I posed the question to him, “What if we wore Crocs?” To help make our final decision, I posted a poll on my Instagram. Of the 80 people who voted in the poll, 63 people voted for “yes! gr8 idea!” while the other 17 people voted for “no! that’s terrible!”

After the majority of people on Instagram told us to wear crocs, we decided to go for it. Honestly, it probably has been the best decision of junior year in regard to dances.

Usually at dances like Homecoming and Sweetheart, I take off my heels to be comfortable and to dance around. While it is more comfortable, my feet turn black from the tarp on the floor. Crocs were the perfect solution to this problem.

I wore heels for the pictures, but when we got to the dance we switched into our black and white crocs. We were comfortable and able to actually move around. It also makes a great story and we were able to laugh about it with people at the dance.

I admit it, Crocs aren’t the cutest but they were very comfortable and I’m so glad I sacrificed style for comfort. I recommend everyone to consider how they feel rather than how they look.
