Crocs and socks?
I’m just back from the local shop, called in wearing my usual home footwear of crocs and socks, preferably merino. I was also wearing a polo shirt. After reading the polo shirt thread I’m concerned I may have committed some sort of crime. My mate says the holes in crocs are for your dignity to seep out so maybe he is on to something.
Would those down filled tent slippers be a more acceptable alternative?Posted 5 years ago
I think it’s all about pool sliders this yearPosted 5 years ago
Are you wearing garters with your socks?Posted 5 years ago
Crocs, socks and polo, only? Are you not arrested for having the last turkey un the shop flapping in the breeze?Posted 5 years ago
Probably should clarify, I had Lee jeans on, a sekonda watch (titanium) drove there in a vw transporter. Bought milk and porridge.
Not sure if any other info would be relevant?
Oh and no gartersPosted 5 years ago
Sounds perfectly reasonable to me but I plan to wear t and polo shirts well into retirement so apparently I don’t have a clue. 😛Posted 5 years ago
You didn’t need to add ‘and socks’.Posted 5 years ago
Hair style? Facial hair?Posted 5 years ago
You’re wearing crocs so I assume you are either a butcher, a nurse or work in an abattoir?Posted 5 years ago
Stubble, as in kept as stubble, not just unshaven. Crocs in no way connected to work, I found them cheap in tkmaxx and they are surprisingly comfortable. The socks bit is the winter modification.
I fear this may be going bad.
Thing is I’ve been doing a lot of miles with roadies lately, they do like their style do roadies.Posted 5 years ago
Was the T5 pimped in any way?Posted 5 years ago
Oh dear, the t5, a little! Though I think I can justify it as the mods make it a great bike van.Posted 5 years ago
Crocs. For people who really don’t give a shit what others think.
Wear mine with pride around the house -garden and would go as far as the village shop. Not much further-because they are the wrong shoe. It’s a toss up between them and my rigger boots not sure which stw would find less acceptable but boooovvaaaaaaa’d
*Looked down on them till I needed a set for work. Now I use them loads as very practical for mooching about.Posted 5 years ago
This can be saved. Were you wearing old jogging bottoms with nonspecific stains on them? If you were it’s all good and you don’t need to worry as long as the Polo shirt was baggy. I’ve been to the local shop in my pyjamas before. Jeff Lebowski is my style icon.
Edit – just saw the Lee jeans bit. Unfortunately that means you’re $&@#%d. The fashion police will shortly be kicking your (actual) back door in.Posted 5 years ago
Obviously you were wearing your leather cowboy hat for the full Dutch caravanner look.Posted 5 years ago
I do own a leather cowboy hat, must remember to wear it next time. So does all this mean I have no sense of style or I am a fashion pioneer?Posted 5 years ago
When I’m king the first things to go are the Croc factory and the Ugg factory. Such blatant disregard for aesthetics that they’re offensive.
Riggers are the business.Posted 5 years ago
Cowboy hat? Are you Alex Debagorski?Posted 5 years ago
If Crocs are good enough for Tour Divide riders to wear off the bike, they’re good enough for me.
Colour is critical though.
Black ideally, & get them dusty, new black ones look naff.
Polo shirt….dear god man.
The T5 gets a nod from me.Posted 5 years ago
Been looking at one to replace the mighty Galaxy, as a kids/bikes/caravan hauler.
But how ckin’ much…..!!!!
My first house cost less than a new T6.
I dont care who wears them crocs are ridiculous and should be melted down and turned into marital aids.Posted 5 years ago
I’ve never worn Crocs, I feel I’m missing out on something…….
My house slippers are a 25 year old pair of Merrell sandals, normally worn with socks.Posted 5 years ago
I wear mine with pride. My go to shoes while getting changed at Inners after the uplift.Posted 5 years ago
Crocs on wet paving are lethal as are sweaty feet inside crocs.Posted 5 years ago
Socks in crocs for safety.
Marvelous invention. Once you’ve let go, life brightens up.Posted 5 years ago
Crocs are excellent.
Rocking a daring pink pair right now.
Easily found in a climbing hut, amongst the fetid, sweaty pile of otherwise identical Crocs by the door.
Great for cycling to the beach, or building dams, or fishing….
Crocs rock.Posted 5 years ago

I’d written off Crocs as being like plastic clogs i.e. neither stylish nor practical, until an acquaintance completed a single-handed Fastnet race in his (that’s a sailing boat race, but quite a long one). I didn’t ask if he wore socks, but they’d have been very wet if he did, so I think not.
I’m now a convert but haven’t bought any myself yet. I’m generally in favour of function over fashion. I also have feet like paddles.Posted 5 years ago

Yep, which is why I always end up in T shirt, shorts and trainers no matter how many nice shirts I’ve bought….Posted 5 years ago
1. Wearing Crocs in public is a crime against fashion and thats just for starters. Other people who wear Crocs are the perennial low-hanging piñatas upon which self-styled style gurus may whack themselves into a scoffing, self-righteous snorting lather.
2. Crocs are like kryptonite to those whose self-regard hinges upon style and status.
3. Crocs offer an occult level of comfort to the feet whilst simultaneously marking the wearer as ‘deficient’ in some way.
4. Crocs are for nurses no-one else has either need of such comfort or occupational disregard for such style suicide.
5. Crocs are for children and/or clown-persons
6. Nothing says ‘I’m alone’ like a man in Crocs
7. Nothing says ‘Married with kids’ like a man in Crocs
8. Nothing says ‘generic, passive and gender-neutral’ like a family in Crocs*
Who knew that mass-produced foamy super-slippers would become a double-reflective phenomena. A perfectly calibrated two-way psychological mirror?
*Except for that family wearing knock-off pseudo-Crocs.Posted 5 years ago
‘Crocs with socks’ is surely the ‘black hole’ of style? I wore them yesterday morning – Crocs, trainer-socks and shorts. Crossing the lawn to the cabin. I actually stood awhile, midway, just marvelling at the effect in the dewy grass. Mist in the air. Just warm enough afoot, yet not perspiring thanks to paradisiacal comfort-levels afforded by the Crocs + socks ensemble. Stuff of dreams. (Thinks) If I could just invoke the nostril-flaring, unquestioningly innocent and un-ironic self-regard of 70’s porn-man while wearing this ensemble? If I could – I would conquer everything. Every. Thing!Posted 5 years ago
My girlfriend pointed and laughed at my crocs then promptly requisitioned them.Posted 5 years ago
Mine are croc bands, if you squint really really hard you might mistake them for a pair of converse.. I highly recommend them with merino socks.Posted 5 years ago
Crocs can be bad for the feet if worn frequently/long enough I’ve read.Posted 5 years ago
Good news for Croc haters 🙂
Bad news for my brother. 😉Posted 5 years ago
