Boy and Girl each have a pair of these. I almost fainted when Boy waved his croc-clad foot at me saying "Look-ee, look-ee, aren't they beaauutifulll?
In a word, no. They're hideous. Girl's aren't as bad, because she's four, and her feet are small, and small shoes are automatically cute, there's just no avoiding it. But the larger they get, the more horrid they are. I saw a grown man on the subway wearing these, and have not yet recovered.
I was afraid Boy would be beaten to death at recess for wearing such effeminate monstrosities, but it seems he's the envy of the school! Crocs are cool! Why??!!
Not only are they ugly, but they look like they'd be really uncomfortable. Not to mention they're made of plastic and so are probably just petri dishes for athlete's foot.
No, no, no, no. I just won't stand for it. Crocs cannot be cool. In what world are dorky, big, ugly, uncomfortable shoes cool?
Oh right. The world has gone mad.

Zoe: "The ugly one, sir."
Mal: (beat) "Could you be more specific?"
