Just about every second person I ran into during my recent trip home was wearing a pair of crocs. That is enough to give me pause but since my daughter absolutely loves hers I bought myself a pair. They are surprisingly comfortable and just about perfect for the variable weather here in Taiwan. Crocs seem to illicit strong reactions from people who either love or hate them. Me? I’m somewhere in the middle. They are quite practical and at $30.00 they are somewhat cheap too (numerous knock-offs abound for less than half the price).
