As if I need to make my case (again) against Crocs, here is another reason to avoid them. Apparently they are likely to get caught in escalators and other machinery. "During the past two years, so-called 'shoe entrapments' in the Washington subway have gone from being relatively rare to happening four or five times a week in the summer."
Oh, and to top off my indignance I saw a Crocs vendor on my last visit to Gothenburg, a scar on the face of the otherwise-quintessential farmer's market. I couldn't bear to post a picture; I think we've seen enough Crocs.
Thanks for the article, Liz in Delaware.
