Come As You Are

Crocs were invented in 2002 and founded by Scott Seamans, Lyndon Hansen, and George Boedecker. They were made to be foam clogs that people could wear boating.
People think of Crocs as just being water shoes, but they can actually help with health. Doctors recommend Crocs to patients with foot problems. Since they are so lightweight, people with trouble walking have an easier time walking in them than other shoes. They also are shock absorbent to help with impact while exercising, slip resistant to prevent injuries, and bacteria resistant to ward off sicknesses.
Crocs not only have health benefits, but they also have many other pros. They come in different colors and styles, so people can have many options. Not only do they have color and style choices, there are jibbitz, which are decorative “buttons” to put in the holes on the crocs.
Even though most people think Crocs are ugly, they are coming back into style. “If you aren’t crocin, you aren’t rockin,” so cop some Crocs.
