I don’t care if the shoes are ugly. If they’re comfortable, wear them everywhere. And I speak from experience. I have a pair of shoes that I consider unattractive, but they are also my most comfortable pair.
I have a similar attitude about clothes. Unless I’m going somewhere formal or semi-formal, I may not be going back. On the one hand, I hate ironing. And my position is, “It’s clean, okay?” No, I’m not wearing anything that looks like cotton wool, but you know what I mean.
However, no amount of ironing, pulling, pushing, or throwing against the wall will make Crocs comfortable. I do not like them. I tried. And I see them everywhere, so I know people swear by them. But I’m not one of them. Also they make my feet sweat which is disgusting.
And yes, they are ugly, but I already explained that it doesn’t matter.
And that doesn’t matter to other Kentuckians I disagree with. It seems Commonwealth residents have chosen Crocs as their favorite fashion trend, according to a StyleSeat.com survey.
And Kentuckians are clearly not alone. Our neighbors to the south are big fans too, as are many people who live in the west – and that would work; extremely low humidity means less sweaty feet.
But are neighbors to the north are in UGGs and Birkenstocks. Again, it’s all about COMFORT. These two brands have rarely been accused of being eye-catching, but they command praise from everyone I’ve known who has owned them…especially Birkenstocks.
Who knows? Maybe I should wear socks with the Crocs. This guy does and raves about them.
All I know is that Kentucky summers get pretty hot. (Luckily, as I write this, we’re enjoying the first day of fall and have put all that nonsense behind us.) And that’s when Crocs are in full force.
By the way, here’s how StyleSeat.com conducted their investigation.
We surveyed 1,003 Americans on May 31, 2022. The gender breakdown was 48% male, 49% female, and 2% non-binary. The age breakdown was 13% Baby Boomer, 23% Gen X, 45% Millennial, and 19% Gen Z. To find the unique fashion and beauty trends in each state, we performed a Google Search analysis of 48 fashion and beauty trends in 50 states.
For me, that pretty much explains everything. Generation Y was the majority age group. I’m Gen X and we’re only 23% of respondents. And I was not one of them.
And maybe you can’t go through me. I can’t wear flip flops either; I hate everything between my toes.
No, I will continue to wear my super comfortable Skechers, no matter how old they are. They don’t go with anything, but they never let me down.
