    Hi Guys

    At our meet this weekend I noticed a fair few children and adults wearing Crocs type footwear - soft rubber-like clogs.

    Whilst we don't see many escalators on a campsite, I wanted to post this just so if you have a pair of similar type shoes in your household, you are aware of any hidden dangers - however remote they are.

    Methinks its the Escalator/Parents/wearers fault

    There is no doubt a few people have been injured, I think that totally the wrong conclusion is being jumped to there.

    I think the majority of the accidents, however few they are, have happened primarily to children.

    and probably just as many accidents to children in ill fitting shoes and sandals, but as Crocs are such a big thing this year they are in the limelight! unlikely that the press will be interested in the amount of accidents with children wearing non branded sandals

    Just my opinion anyway

    nope - they have lots of holes in, I have to admit Iwas sceptical to start with, but they are great, dothe gardening in them and take them every time I go camping

    I think I am now a Honorary RV and a chav all in the same week :Rofl1:

    Only if you wear the Burberry check baseball cap and have your designer knickers sticking out above the waistband of your jeans. :Laughing:

    Oh, and I am not a fan of Crocks, mainly because with my scrawny ankles I'd look like Minnie Mouse in them

    People say the crocs are comfortable, but how comfortable can you really be knowing you're wearing some truly ugly footwear

    Jelly shoes went out of style for a reason, let's leave them there in the past, .. cut down wellies are more flattering.. :RollEyes:

    i would personally say that anyone that has not worn them can not really comment

    the look of them is one thing but the ease of wear and comfort are another

    they are supremely comfortable and great for slipping on and off easily whilst camping, great in the shower, great on the beach and superb on the boat.

    i did not like the style and colours when i first saw them, but, i went out and purchased a brown pair so as not to stand out, and wheyyyyy they are amazing and very comfortable and very cheap, all the family has them in various colours.

    people who have poo pooed em to start with now own them after trying so dont right em off

    not entirely sure what a chav is

    Agreed. They may look cr@p but they are so practical. I bought them for use in the van cos you can leave them outside in the rain etc. but I find I'm wearing them all the time.
    Also not quite sure what a chav is but I suppose from the above that he must wear (pseudo in my case) crocs and have a motorhome :Doh::Blush:

    Do you have an ASBO Suzy?

    If not then you can't possibly be a chav :Rofl1: :Rofl1:
