The Same Crocs Shoe

I have big feet, size 12. They're wide, too. It's really hard for me to find shoes.

Being a teacher, I stand all day long on what is essentially a tile floor on top of a cement slab.

I wear my Crocs clogs most of the time every single day.

I'll admit that they aren't the most fashionable shoes, but they are wide enough, they make my feet feel good, and they don't smell bad even if I wear them every day.

In case you're wondering, this is not a product review. I have paid (full price) for every pair of Crocs I own, and I have never received any incentives or payments from Crocs.

Back to my shoes.

I bought a few pairs of girlie Crocs for BlogHer last year, but they aren't wide enough, and they made my feet hurt by lunchtime.

So I stick to my (unattractive but so comfortable) clogs. They're ventilated, they have a strap around the heel so that they don't slip off, and they keep my feet feeling good all day long.

I like them so much that I have identical Crocs in black, blue, and brown. (If I had more money, I'd have more colors. I bought these colors to match my pants. Every pair of pants I own coordinates nicely with either black, blue, or brown.)

The only problem is that the black, blue, and brown aren't all that different.

So it's not a stretch to imagine how, in the pre-dawn shadows, while juggling my sobbing 40-pound 2-1/2-year-old child, my purse, my iPhone, and my lunchbag, I put on two different Crocs.

It's not a stretch to imagine how I ended up at school like this:

Two different Crocs

It's not like one has a heel and the other doesn't. Or one has a heel strap and the other doesn't. They're the same.

They feel the same.

The same Crocs shoe, probably made on the same mold from the same material.

In a different color.

  1. I totally did that at a holiday dinner party once. One brown loafer, one black loafer (heels, of course, you know how short I am.) Stood with one foot under a table cloth all night long.

  2. I once got to a concert, only to realize I was wearing two right flip-flops. How I didn't notice before that is beyond me. So I feel your pain.

  3. That is greatness. I like in Scotland and still wear my Crocs, so much so that I get made fun of for it (mostly by fellow Americans). My mother-in-law blessed me with faux fur-lined Croc boots (Crocs meet UGs) for the cold winter and my pants/trousers never got wet nor did my feet get cold. I normally try to appease the fashion gods, but in regard to Crocs, I will gladly rebel with you. 🙂

  4. That's great! How old are your students? That could really make or break a day! Once in Elementary school I came to school in my house shoes. I nearly died of embarrassment!

  5. Reminds me of the day I showed up at work with one blue and one red shoe. They were also exactly the same and I was running late so I just slipped on two shoes that looked the same in the dark. No one even noticed until after lunch time.

  6. Hee hee!!! Did your students call you out on it? I had a teacher that did that when I was in junior high I think. We teased her relentlessly. Good thing she was a good sport about it. 🙂

  7. LOL That's something I would do! Wait! That is something I have done! I was also a teacher. Once I showed up at school with one brown shoe and one black shoe and fifth graders made fun of me. Great. 😀

    I love, love, love my Crocs. I have so many pairs: high heels, flip-flops, clogs, etc. They are just so comfy. They are the perfect mom shoe.
