Although in my case it’s sliders rather than Crocs, but they’re in the same ballpark aren’t they?
My flatmate, Joe, is an absolute square and I have no qualms telling the world that. Often he’ll ridicule me for wandering around the flat in my socks and sandals, telling me that I look like a wannabe gangster, but trust me when I say he has no room to talk about fashion.
He looks like his mum still picks his outfits out for him.
Anyway, society mostly condemns the ol’ socks and sandals combo, despite what us fashionistas think.
Finally, though, the fashion gods have listened to us by fusing the best of both to create one uber garment.
It’s Crocs with socks already attached to them. Genius? Insane? The line is often blurred between the two.
Yep, it appears as though Crocs have teamed up with the streetwear company Alife to unleash an all-new collection of their multicoloured plastic shoes on the world.
They’re Crocs, with socks!
Sadly, they’re $140 a pair though, which is kind of outrageous when you could just stick a pair of socks onto normal Crocs yourself.
Failing that, you could always go for these crocs with ‘fanny packs’ on them as the Americans say.
They come courtesy of Crocs and Japanese company Beams and they’ll only set you back £40. So yeah, not a bad halfway house.
Is it weird that I think these are an absolute monstrosity yet I quite like the ones with the socks?
Shame I don’t have a spare $140 lying around.
F*ck it, the fanny pack ones it is.

Charismatic, witty, charming, engaging - four things Joshua Rogers will never be. Thankfully, he’s a semi-competent writer, who, after graduating university with two mostly pointless degrees, joined The Hook two years ago. Since then, he has honed his writing skills over the course of various sex related articles. Now, at the tender age of 26, he’s finally finished experimenting with (on) himself.
