    Crocs were designed for boating. The trademarked Croslite material allows the company to make comfortable, lightweight shoes that are resistant to slipping. Crocs became popular with nurses and restaurant workers, two professions that spend a great deal of time on their feet. They were created to alleviate achy feet and plantar pain.

    On the Other: Comfort is Fashion's Enemy

    Fashion experts such as Tim Gunn, Stacy London, and Clinton Kelly will tell you that when it comes to dressing fashionably, comfort is thrown out the window. In an interview with the Washington Post, Gunn went so far as to say "I hate crocs. May they please go away."

    Bottom Line

    Crocs are comfortable. The United States Ergonomics Council and American Podiatric Medical Association certified them. Many doctors recommend wearing them to people with foot pain, bunions, diabetes, and injured feet. Just know that you won't be winning any style points when you wear them and you might take a lot of grief from friends about how they look.
