Big fat "word" to the Globe and their article on Crocs.
Folks, if Mario Batali finds these shoes fashionable, you probably don't want to get involved. And, my personal hero and co-life-coach Stacy London says no. And if Stacy says no, you'd better listen.
London knocks Crocs for making wearers' legs look heavy and short and notes that there are other "comfort shoes" that are more flattering.
For real. I mean, you can wear lovely sneakers (hello, Saucony!) or Pasquinade-endorsed Reef flip-flops (I have this pair!) but for the love of the Sweet Baby Jesus, do NOT wear these abortions on your feet.
