I want crocs but my parents say they are ugly. How can I convince them to get me them for my birthday?

Asked by sketchy_art (4points) 2 weeks ago

I would be wearing them to school and I wouldn’t wear them covered in jibbitz like they think I would.

I hate to say this, but Crocs are ugly. Doesn’t matter what color – they just are nasty.

They are also pretty much 2015 – way out of fashion. Why do you want them?

Just get a nice pair of socks and sandals.

But she wants crocs!

How old are you? Instead of asking for them for your birthday, is there a way you could earn the money and buy them yourself? Maybe ask your parents if you could do chores that would let you earn the money to buy them.

Point out that Crocs are very versatile and are very comfortable. You see many different people wearing them including doctors, nurses, dentists, etc. Tell them you aren’t a fashionista…you aren’t looking for designer shoes. Tell them you are looking for comfort and versatility. Just don’t ask for the Camo design ones!

Find photos of people they respect wearing the ugly suckers, but the better strategy is to find a gig, acquire your own money and buy the things yourself. But hurry. There’s an excellent chance they will
still be new on your feet when they pass out of style.

Wait, maybe they will surprise you for your Birthday?

Yes, ask for chores that pay. Buy them. I love shoes, but crocs? Invest in sneaks or jimmy choo’s!

Crocs are very ugly but damn they are comfortable, I started developing a heal spur a few years back broke down bought a pair of crocs and in a few weeks my heal spur was gone.
