Crocs? Seriously? I don't step outside the house in shoes that I can't run and fight in. I won't even wear loafers. My dress shoes all lace up and have rubber soles. Alaska follows the culture of removing your shoes when you enter someone's home. It's not Shinto; it's just that we track a lot of snow and mud around otherwise. So slip-on shoes are popular here. My wife is perpetually exasperated as I lace up my Danners every time I have to go in or out of the house, but I'm not going to die in a pair of slippers.
My every day shoes are Merrell Moab boots (comfy at good high top sneakers, but way
tougher and good enough for business casual attire). My version of 'Crocs' are Keen sandals. They're the combat boots of sandals!
Sorry, no. Chacos. Keens are great but lighter duty.
Also, I thought everyone in circles like this already knew about Crocs? Anyone remember the stories about kids getting toes, feet, legs ripped off or broken in escalators? No Crocs in this house.

Unless you're wearing scrubs, Crocs make you look less intelligent. Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this. They're the pajama pants of shoes. Don't wear them in public any farther than your mailbox.
