Yes, they’re comfortable but yes they’re ugly.
Since 2002 Crocs have been teetering on the edge of fashion vs comfort but new research says they could be bad for your body in the long run.
“Unfortunately, Crocs are not suitable for all-day use,” says Dr. Megan Leahy a Chicago-based podiatrist.
“These shoes do not adequately secure the heel. When the heel is unstable, toes tend to grip which can lead to tendinitis, worsening of toe deformities, nail problems, corns and calluses. The same thing can happen with flip-flops or any backless shoes as the heel is not secured.”
Sorry Mario Batali. Looks like you’re gonna need some new kicks.
