Peter Barlow Doffs His Crocs




I Hate Crocs reports that Chris Gascoyne (our Peter Barlow) has seen the light and binned his Crocs.

Crocs-haters, take note: I’ve also reported on this topic (A Pox on Crocs!) over on my blog Infomaniac.

MJ, I love you for this post.
I am in the orthotic business and keep getting asked stupid questions about the ubiquitous 'Crocs' and if they are as good as they are made out to be.

I tell people that Crocs are indeed a crock. So to speak.

Papasmurf: May I suggest you wear one of 'I Hate Crocs' t-shirts to work to spread the Croc hatred?

Too funny! I hated them when they first came out...(about three years ago) and when they spread like a disease all over the whole. They are the ugliest shoes on earth...Good for Chris!
PS He will be back on Corrie!

Ohhh, I can't stand them - I thought it was just me!

They are ugly as only plastic shoes can be (speaking as someone who is old enough to remember Jellies), and whoever created them should be banished to a desert island...

What I didn't mention in my posting is that the Crocs company co-founder was arrested on misdemeanor charges of threatening to slit his former brother-in-law's throat!

I work in a hospital and EVERYONE wears them damned things. Most also wear the special jewellry that you can put on the shoes (apparently it's 'cute' and 'fun').

I don't own a pair. I DO own a pair of cheap knock-offs though.
I bought them in Scotland when I was desperate for something to slip on to run over to the next house - through the mud.
They're great to wear when cleaning the house or running through mud. I'd never DREAM of wearing them out in public where other people can see me.

MJ,

Well, his feet probably hurt. I know it can make me cranky!

I won't even buy a pair to wear when I pick up dog poop in the yard;0(

Varicose Veins Phoenix said...

This is a vein and vascular center that has multiple locations. They are located in near PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA. Office locations are, Surprise, Arizona, USA, - Goodyear, Arizona USA, Chandler, Arizona USA and Gilbert , Arizona USA. These cities surround Phoenix, so we want to focus on each city and about a 20 mile radius around each one as well as Phoenix itself since it is in the center of all these cities.
