The amphibian footwear created by Crocs has always been controversial in the fashion world, but now the medical field is weighing in on the shoes as well. Although many styles by Crocs are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association and the U.S. Ergonomics Council, hospitals in the UK and Sweden have banned the shoes. Some British hospitals feel they pose health and safety risks (especially the styles featuring decorative holes on them), plus they don't meet the dress code (too colorful I presume). The Swedes found the shoes created static electricity that interfered with medical equipment causing malfunction.
On the heels of the controversy, came this new style of Crocs - The Mammoth ($39.99) and was curious what you all would think of it. It is essentially a fleece lined clog with holes in it. The design really confuses me, but I have never been a Crocs lover (unlike my daughters who LOVE them).
So as always, I am curious - are these cool?
