In an effort to not blaspheme the title of one of Joel’s books, let me explain myself….
I know they’re not deemed the most fashionable footwear around, maybe not even the most practical, but there’s no denying that they are comfortable. (Gosh, even typing those words makes me sound like my mom)
It feels like just yesterday that I would walk out of the house with heels and hear, “how in the world do you walk in those, they’re not even comfortable”. To which I would reply, “Mom, comfort doesn’t matter!”
Well, I think it’s safe to say that I might just be over that stage in life and on to a more practical, convenient, “Croc” stage of life. And I’m okay with that.
This summer, Buddy and I have noticed that we find ourselves in Crocs quite often. They’re not great for all farm chores, but if they end up getting dirty, you just hose them off and they’re clean again–gotta love that! And although we don’t wear Crocs everyday, we usually don this footwear on Sundays and like to think of them as our “day of rest” shoe of choice. (I could probably make a joke about them being “holy” but I’ll refrain)
So, the moral of this story is: sometimes it’s okay to break free from the confines of Muck boots, wellies, and the “typical” farm footwear and put on something a little more comfortable, like Crocs…because you CAN farm in Crocs!
And in case you are wondering, I was not paid to promote any Crocs products….but, Crocs, if you happen to stumble upon this blog post, I wouldn’t mind if you sent some free gear my way! 🙂
