Take a glance at my profile and you will see that I am not a fan of a certain Hu-gley rubber holed garden gnome shoe. Yes I realize a lot of chefs wear these "F" for Fashion shoes. A lot of people fall off escalators when they wear these plastic monstrosities. Did you know that? I mean I don't think I'll be wielding a Wusthorf or whipping up a frosting on an escalator any time soon, but still. Gag. Yes I am on my feet sometimes 13 hours a day, but my Chucks rule, as long as I put insoles in them. I also work with chef's gel mats which save my ass and my feet. Wouldn't it be great if they could save face too?
So imagine my surprise when I was surfing the net looking for a cruelty free pair of black ballet flats or some facsimile of to change into when I go ingredient shopping. I was looking for something versatile, something to don with a pair of skinny jeans or rolled up Levis or summer skirt. Lalalala. Ooooh look these are kind of cute and economical and Eco friendly. WTF? Noooo. Shield my eyes. They are a Croc. Can't be. Let me see them again. Yep my eyes do not deceive me. Those are a freakin' Croc!
It might be time to throw those Croc prejudices aside, GiGi. Well since Zappos does have free shipping returns I decided to give the Crocs a whirl.
