I'm not very fond of Crocs. I think they are ugly, and I would never want to see my kids wearing them. But, since my fashion sense is about as sharp as a marble, perhaps I need another reason.
It appears, there is one. Apparently, there have been many problems around the world with people wearing this decade's jelly shoes on escalators. It seems that they soft soles on Crocs and other similar types of footwear can get stuck in the escalators and injure the wearer's toes, as reportedly happened to Rory McDermott.
Now the news article reads pretty well, but this sounds like the type of report that lends itself to urban legend status, so I'm not completely sold, but it seems credible enough that I will resist any (heretofore unseen) urges to purchase these rubber pieces of crappy looking - well, crap - for the sake of my childrens' toes.
