The Croc has caused a massive debate since their release, but whether you love them or hate them, there’s a reason why you should probably change your footwear
They can be pretty comfortable and you can also wash them in the dishwasher. They’re a popular shoe for toddlers and are great for gardening in. They are however, hideous.
Fans of Crocs have always maintained that the shoe is comfortable, and as long as they do, then surely it doesn’t matter what they look like! Right?
The Huffington Post has reported that doctors have revealed the unsightly shoe is actually bad for your feet.

Dr. Megan Leahy, a podiatrist with the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute said: “Unfortunately Crocs are not suitable for all-day use.
She stated that they “offer nice arch support,” but that you shouldn’t wear them over a long period of time, because “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, calluses. The same thing can happen with flip flops or any backless shoes as the heel is not secured.”
Not very good news for those of us that love flip flops too!
