The Croc Trend was lamented by lemare in this September 2007 post. I have good news for her, and bad news for many others.

Crocs, Inc. may be on its last legs.

    I saw a guy wearing them at the Farmer’s Market. He looked like he had taken leave of his hippy commune for the day.

    I thought the same thing until I tried them on.

    They are utterly fantastic. Catch the vision!

    I’ve been in North Georgia boating and walking in a river by where we are staying and the Fivefingers continue to exceed expectation.
