Grown Man Crocs
It seems that things get more polarizing on Sart Inc with every single post so I figured I might as well go for broke sooner rather than later. So, obviously, Crocs suck. No one is going to deny that - solidarity, folks. Their practicality and comfort are no excuse for how flat out terrible they look. But what if someone was to take the idea behind Crocs and make something not absolutely terrible? Well, Shudy, an Italian based shoe company, has done just that. Shudy will tell you that their "First" (named that because it was literally their first product ever produced) is some supreme meeting of art and object that redefines our idea of shoes. I'd tell you that's nonsense and that Shudy's plastic driving mocs are simply another viable option for S/S footwear. If you find yourself running with the "we off that Americana" set, these are your L.L. Bean boot mocs. Shudy isn't necessarily hard to get your hands on (read: Google), but it isn't exactly easy either. Bluefly has navy and Yoox has black. I can't personally pay more than $60 for these in good conscience so I'd recommend checking Yoox periodically for their seasonal restocks. A friend of mine loves his and swears by them so there is at least one testimonial floating out there in the ether. However, I'm still trying to track down someone to vouch for the Shudy Timbs.
