I Am Addicted to Crocs
Crocs are made of PCCR proprietary closed-cell resin, trade named Croslite. PCCR is plastic foam made up of tiny cells that are waterproof, moldable, and odor resistant. As far as I am concerned these shoes are a miracle. In fact I am so addicted I seldom wear any other kind of shoes.
I found Crocs when I was working at a job that required standing on a concrete floor most of the day. By the time I got home my feet and legs hurt so bad I’d be in tears. My co-workers told me to buy a pair of Crocs. I scoffed at the idea that anything so simple could relieve me of my pain.
My daughter bought me a pair of purple Crocs for Mother’s Day that year, and I have been hooked ever since. I had tried knock-offs, and while they did help relieve my foot pain, they wore out quickly. The soles were thinner and rocks poked right through when I walked my dog down the gravel path from my house. Crocs are have built in arch support, circulation nubs, and orthotic heel cups to support and protect the heel which added to the PCCR material give the wearer blissful comfort.
My first pair of genuine Crocs are still in good shape after two years. Of course I have added to my Crocs collection. I got a pair with the fuzzy lining for winter. My daughter recently sent me a pair of Carolina Blue [that is my color name, not the company’s] clogs. This spring I bought a pair of navy and white Islanders, which resemble dock shoes in a Crocs sort of way. There are dozens of styles to choose from, and while some people consider Crocs “the ugly shoes” I think they have made great strides to develop cute models. I love the fun colors.
In addition to fun colors and funky styles Crocs have a line of prescription shoes for diabetic patients. The closed cell properties of PCCR are not toxic and resist odor while inhibiting bacterial and fungal growth. The shoes can be worn without socks. They are easy to clean with warm water and mild soap.
