Which is uglier…

Moe and I were having a heated discussion earlier today…

No actually it was about something else. Moe showed me a picture of some Vans that are butt ugly. He said they’re cool because they’re Vans and that they are rare to be found in SPD form. I said they are FUGLY and no matter if they were Vans, UGLY IS UGLY.

Then Moe takes a jab at me because I wear Crocs. He basically said that if a guy that wears Crocs can call Vans ugly…then he’s (me) got no crediblity since in his mind Crocs are super ugly.

Anyway, I think he’s wrong, for one, those Vans look like something old people would wear, secondly, Crocs are amazingly comfortable and people who wear them are all about winning!

So we need your help, leave a comment to let us know which is uglier, the Vans or Crocs. Don’t say both are ugly because that don’t count…we’re only interested in the opinion of what people think about the shoes mentioned.

Crocs Yukon Review

It has been over 5 1/2 months since I’ve received the Crocs Yukon To say that I’ve worn “tested” these is an understatement. I’ve practically worn the Crocs Yukon almost every day of those 5 1/2 months and I have to tell you, I still love them!

When I first got the Crocs, not everyone I showed them to loved them as much as I did. I had about 50% that thought they were fugly and the other 50% thought they were pretty cool.

Just in case you need them, here’s the specs:

• leather upper and neutral color combinations add rugged sophistication to this traditionally comfy clog
• ventilation ports increase breathability and filter water and debris away from the footbed
• loose fit allows foot to bend and expand naturally, reducing fatigue
• slip resistant and non-marking soles
• made with croslite™ material
MSRP $49.99

You’re probably wondering why are a pair of Crocs being reviewed on a mountain biking website. It’s simple, sometimes we don’t like to drive to the trail head in our riding shoes. So you put on a pair of Crocs before and after a ride.

But what I’ve done with the Crocs is beyond what I originally use for. I basically used the Crocs for just about anything I needed to do that involved shoes. I rode my bikes with them, worked on the car, went out to eat, go to the office, the beach, took them into the ocean…you name it I did it with the Crocs.

Due to all the wear and tear I’ve put on the Crocs, now the soles look like this.

They have been put to good use and still have plenty of life in them. But the most important question people ask me is, “are they comfortable?” I answer it by saying this, “Heck yah, best shoes I’ve ever worn, I think everyone should get Crocs!” I’m serious…

People may think I’m being sarcastic, but they ARE the best shoes I’ve ever worn. They slip on easily and thanks to the straps, they don’t slide off when you are wearing them. Another concern people have would be the quality of the shoes. They looks so “plasticy” is one said to me. I explained to her that I’ve never had problems with the Croslite material, straps, buckles, velcro, leather or any other part of the shoes to fail on me. These are built really well and should last you a long time.

So all in all, I’m very happy with the Crocs, I think more people should get them and you can even select which colors you want! Personally I think I’m going to get a pair of black Crocs soon!
