Crocs
I work a very physical job in catering so I bought these foam clog shoes called Crocs. I got them in navy but there are a zillion other colors. They are amazing. I even prefer to wear them over the house instead of my UGGS bedroom slippers. Anyone else like crocs? See www. crocs.com

This trend is really taking off so which is why i've moved this to trend spotting. Crocs is a canadian company (I believe) and not only are they EVERYWHERE in canada (and i think the states as well? though someone correct me if i'm wrong) they are now expanding into the UK with a LOT more distrubutors this season (including Harrods among others). This isn't so much a 'stylish' trend but it's definately on the streets.

They are supposedly huge over here as well, but I can't recall seeing anyone wearing them...

I suppose people don't wear them in public.

Well I see them everywhere it's so bad. I mean if you wear them for your job fine, or at home fine. But out in public....gross! I see little girls wearing them all the time with like cute little skirts, or teens wearing a decent outfit and then you look down and there is this bright orange pair of Crocs. I have to admit that they are comfy, but just not for wearing out in public.

I have yet to see a well-dressed person here wearing them Some of you know that I'm involved in (dog) breed rescue, and they are very popular with that set

Their website describes this style as "youthful and funky" ... this is the style favored by middle-aged women here

EDIT - Missing picture credits

People here wear them all the time. I guess in general Hawaii is a casual place and lots of people spend a lot of time outdoors so then they'd be appropriate. I prefer slippers (flip flops) for mess outdoor-type footwear. I just think they look ugly. Like Dutch wooden shoes except they aren't wooden. It's like a tupperware shoe. Not tasteful but practical.

They are popular in Singapore too, you can see a lot of people wear them.
They are suppose to be comfy but I don't really see myself in them.

My friend had to have a pair back in the winter and I thought he was crazy! I dont find them attractive at all. But then I tried them on and I have to say they are pretty comfy. I see them everywhere now so I suppose people really like them...

I've honestly never seen anyone other than health care professionals wearing these.

Blech. Work and stuff, that's fine. Cause you need to be comfortable when you're on your feet, but for some reason, every tourist in this city wears these out. I really don't understand why. They're pretty much hideous.
