I Would Never Wear That!

Posted By on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 at 1:38 PM

We're always curious to learn what items of clothing are taboo to certain people. Most of us adult women have figured out what does or does not look good on our bodies, so our preferences are somewhat determined by what makes our butt look smaller or our boobs look bigger — or vice versa. Perhaps you fear anything strapless (hear, hear!), but have no problem wearing a miniskirt the size of a handkerchief. We're not judging. OK, maybe just a little. Sometimes you have to do a double-take to see if someone actually has bottoms on, but that's another post for another day.

But there is one item of clothing that appears to be persona non grata to everyone.

The Croc. The four-letter word of footwear.

Now, we've heard arguments that Crocs are acceptable for utilitarian purposes such as gardening or digging a giant hole. We know that they're supposed to be super comfortable, and it's definitely convenient to wear shoes that you can hose manure off of in a pinch. And really, how cute is the rest of your gardening ensemble, anyway?

But 100 percent of the random sample we polled responded that they would never, ever wear Crocs in public. We even showed these fashionable ladies (and gentlemen) some of the fancier Croc options, which are arguably more shoe-like and less Croc-like. A girl who shall remain nameless called these "fugly" (I love that we're still using that word), and a boy who shall also remain nameless said that the mere sight of Crocs near a ladyfriend would make him want to put his pants back on. What's with all of the hating, people? They're just shoes!

Well, you be the judge. Would you wear these?
