Shoe of the Moment - Mario Batali Crocs

I know...Crocs are UGLY.  It's true.  I admit it.  But they're also comfy, and waterproof, and washable.  That makes them practical. And if you're going to wear ugly shoes, you may as well get them in the CRAZIEST color you can get your hands on.  I heart orange crocs - especially this Bistro style by Mario Batali.

I got these for walking the dogs as I got sick of trashin my shoes in mud, or wet grass, or creeks, or anything else we encounter at the dog park.  I especially love these when I'm walking the girls at the dog park near the creek.  These have traction on the bottom - intended to be non-slip in the kitchen.  This sole helps on the slick rocks when we're playing near the water.  Also, the soles are higher in the back than my other crocs, which is great in mud and wet grass.  And the best part - these are perfectly washable - I just throw them in our washing machine.

What shoes do you wear when you don't want to trash your good shoes?

I thought they were going to stop making crocs? Maybe I heard wrong.

I have a pair and they're so comfortable!

I haven't heard that. I think people WISH they stop making crocs because they're rather ugly - but they're going strong. And I agree - totally comfy!

I can't bring myself to buy crocs! Mainly because they are plastic, but I do like the concept of them and have come close to getting my own. Right now I wear my slip on sneakers or my "retired" running shoes when I don't want to get my regular shoes dirty. I have my eye on some keen open sandal like shoes - work like sneakers/hiking/water shoes but have cut outs that make them a little like sandals? I've been wanting them for years and I think they will be mine soon! :)

I know what you mean about crocs being plastic - I resisted them for a long time because I kept associating them to the jelly shoes of my youth - yuck! But crocs don't get sweaty and stinky like that.

My sister is a runner and has a bunch of 'retired' running shoes too!

Keens are the best! I have some of those multi-purpose keens too - and I LOVE them!
