I remember when crocs first hit the scene and I have to say, I wasn't really a fan.
They seemed comfortable enough, but I just couldn't get into the look, especially since the early ones seemed to come in colors that did their best to resemble vomit.
Still, after that month at summer camp when I saw them everywhere, even my grumpy self started to get used to them. And by now, there are so many different styles of croc that anyone can find a pair that looks right to them.
And if the latest incarnation of these shoes was around when I was younger, I probably would've understood the appeal a lot earlier.
