Ever since appearing on a Vogue list of “people, trends, and items that will rule fashion in 2017,” at the end of December, Crocs have reappeared as part of the national fashion debate. (If such a thing exists). The folks at Slate hope that Crocs’ inclusion is nothing but a “funny perversity” not meant to be taken seriously. The Sydney Morning Herald makes sure when discussing the trend to take a stand of its own: “There’s nothing charming about this shoe – they also smell strongly of chemicals.”
But just because Crocs appeared on an elite Vogue list – not to mention on the catwalk during London Fashion Week – doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear these incredibly comfortable footwear. Truth is – although Slate tries to say Crocs “disappeared from popular discourse around 2008” – Crocs have never gone out of fashion. Crocs are pleasant to wear, not too expensive and endorsed by Mario Batali. If that’s not a winning marketing strategy, I don’t know what is. If you need more, however, I have good news. For the next four days, Crocs is running a promotion: If you buy two or more clearance styles, you get an extra 50 percent off. Furthermore, all orders of $25 or more merit free shipping. I know it might not feel warm enough outside to wear these boat shoe variants, but spring will be here before you know it. Now’s the time to stock up.
There are a total of 188 pairs of Crocs in the clearance section, and I encourage you to check them all out some time in the next four days. And since they are in clearance, they are already on sale to begin with. These include some of the more classic styles:
As well as my all-time favorite:
And don’t forget that Crocs actually sell very nice shoes of the non-clog variety, such as these Chukkas:
Take advantage from fancy-pants fashion expert lists if you want, but don’t be ashamed to just wear what’s comfortable. The snobs in New York and London who think they dictate fashion don’t control you. They couldn’t stop Trump or the Brexit, after all. You do you. And do it proud.
