Some closet Croc wearers here.
You can always tell despite what they say.

Same ones probably install a ballon over the end of their weapon to help it stay clean while  in use.

I wear my wifeís baby blue crocs because Iím to lazy to buy my own. Always good for a few wise  cracks from the peanut gallery. Needless to say theyíre only the 2 wheel drive model.

They donít even have the straps???
Thatís like buying a 2wd Jeep. What the heck.

They used to. Guess I broke the 4wd one day, never repaired it. Probably just poor maintenance,  or maybe taking them to areas beyond there capabilities.

Ya sure you weren't wearing these?  :chuckle:

Do they make 2wd jeeps? For that matter, why do they even make 2wd pickups? What a waste of money.
A waste of money like buying crocs to wear hunting. Yuppies buying yuppie stuff. Things they do don't always make sense to the common folk.

More of a choice to travel in style. The looks of envy I get riding up to pack an elk with a couple of mules are considerably more substantial than one would get from having the newest limited edition crocs.

Being cool and wrapping your tool is always good advice when exploring the bush. :chuckle:

My kids have several pairs of these. You can literally hose them off and they are dry in no time.

Those don't look very breathable.

Not at all, they are good for playing in the mud though and then you just wash them anyway. Spray a little arm and hammer in them and your good.

I just don't see how they would run in my system, just looking at the big picture. Maybe if I stepped on a few tent spikes they'd get some better airflow. I only run things with good airflow.

Well, if you're going to chime in can we get a quick raise of hands of those that haven't attempted cutting their toes of while wearing crocs this year? :hello:

Big enough holes and they'll be good for draining any accumulated fluids or moisture out as well.

Aye!

I did step on a nail building my deck with my crocs on. Zero protection. Like, it didnít even slow the nail down at all. Just poked me though fortunately. Only a little blood. Hoses them out and they were good to go. If I had them in 4 lo, it may have been a different story.

People still wear those things?  I thought they died a humane death in the midwest a decade ago.
