    I have two pairs of croc-a-likes which cost around a fiver each. One pair has a solid front, rather than a holed one, which is very useful on a camp site in the morning dew :D
    Might look at Lidl on Thursday to see if there is a significant difference between the real thing and my holed pair :D

    Yeah, yeah... but £3.99 is more expensive than €4.00...

    ...and it is sunny in Silves... not shrouded in cold, damp fog.


    JJ :cool:

    PS. This reminds me of when I was berating Funster Eddie Earl for wearing genuine Crocs.

    "I can't believe you paid all that money just for the brand name" I said, "these cost me less than a fiver and I have worn them every day for over a year."

    "That's a bit pricey for me, JJ" he replied, "I got these out of a skip for nothing..."

    Crocs are so YESTERDAY.

    All the fashion conscious leaders of style wear ORSO these days...

    I bought some cheap Crocs once, they left black marks on our carpet and were made from old car tyres I think. I threw them in a skip. :)

    All I can say is that whoever was responsible for marketing Crocs and making them an item of desire deserves a Nobel prize .. if you can foist ugly plastic shoes on the public and charge them silly money.. . well done..

    When I was kid .. my dad would cut down my old winter wellies for summer .. he cut the tops off and cut holes in the sides of the feet for ventilation.. and do you know what... they looked like Crocs.. :)


    DIY Crocs.. go on JJ .. you know you want a pair.. :cool:

    I get piss taken for wearing cross but for the beach and camping they are spot on. Much prefer them to adventure sandles or as my granddaughter calls them Nike air Jesus

    Not going to that sort of trouble and expense!

    €4.00 for a pair of Orso's... why would I bother?

    You do realise I have lettuces to look after, don't you?

    Watch out for wet tiled floors if you wear croc-a-likes. They skid like mad.

    Only things I wear and I'd have croc boots if I could. Veggie foot wear, throw in washing machine, never smell.

    I took a long time to be persuaded to buy a pair of croc-a-likes and even now only use them in the van - but they are ideal there instead of slippers.

    You know the holes in Crocs are only there to let your dignity pour out through them ? :LOL:
    I must admit I have a pair of lookeelikey's and genuine ones and prefer the real ones, they're not as slippy on wet floors.
    I also have a pair of Croc "slippers" solid things with a removable, washable fleece lining, possibly the best slippers I've ever owned. Saw a Dutch couple in Belgium wearing the Croc equivalent of proper wooden clogs, big chunky things they were.

    The Crocs sold by Lidl are genuine Crocs, and are miles better than the cheapo imitations. I bought some on a previous offer and they are just great.
