Crocs for bike
Bought my first pair as everyone offshore wears them due to a pretty much universal ban on open toed sandals
Find my self wearing them all the time around the house/garden.
Dont go out in public in them though. In much the same way i wouldnt nip to the shops in my slippers
Riding in them – no thanksPosted 3 years agosteve_b77Member

I urge everyone to try crocs for riding.
The only requirement is that you have a large surface area pedal. Like the Nukeproof Neutron Flat Pedals. This combo is perfection for me at least.
They are simply amazing.
I dont think i’ll ever wear anything else.

My wife says crocs are for people with elasticated wastes on their trousers. Personally I have made a living will that if I ever where Crocs instead of my 510’s on my bike, I will be happily taken out into the car park and shot as Crocs are for people who have lost the will to live! 😆Posted 3 years agoconvertSubscriber
I was once a scoffer.
But then I got some – they came with a rule – never wear them in polite society. But they are chuffin ace!
There is nothing better to wear before/after an open water swim; when hopping out of the campervan for a waz; on a bike/kayak trip when setting up your kit and not wanting to mince around in cleats/barefoot; a quick late night trip to the man cave to set up the bike for an early morning ride; any overnight light(ish)weight trip as a 2nd pair of shoes to the ‘action’ shoe of choice.
I have to keep myself in check now – I’ve found myself reaching for them on an emergency corner shop mission and had to resist.
Go on, you don’t know what you’re missing (though riding in them is maybe going a bit far)! If you can’t find need for crocs in your life, your life is not rad enough!Posted 3 years ago
Actually it’s hard to imagine whether or not I’d wear those footrubbers of shame if it wasn’t for my mashed feet joints, being as they were an enabling revelation after many years in a wheelchair/crutches and unable to bear pressure in any other footwear excepting superduper expensive Air Max running shoe varieties.
Maybe yes, just to annoy style-nazis 😉
Don’t judge unless you walked a mile in another mans crocs.
Don’t walk a mile in another man’s crocs unless they spent a day prior submerged in strong bleach solution 🙂Posted 3 years agobinnersSubscriber
Nothing says you’ve lost all respect for yourself Like a pair of Crocs.
Sartorially there needn’t be too many steadfast principles to stick to, but ‘don’t wear any item of clothing that looks like it’s come from the CBeebies costume department’ is pretty near the top
You can try and convince yourself otherwise, but you look like Mr Tumbles, and all you’re missing is some bright patchwork dungareesPosted 3 years agoconvertSubscriber
You can try and convince yourself otherwise,
I wore mine as I wandered up the pebbly beach early this morning after a nice refreshing swim. Little comfy cushions for my cold toes. In honour of this thread I then kept them on for the obligatory bank holiday full english at the cafe…..with a Rapha (free, I hasten to add) top on. Put that up your sartorial pipe and smoke it!Posted 3 years ago
