Are crocs shoes dangerous?

The answer is no. If you don’t buy yourself or your kids a pair of Croc shoes because ABC news told you that they were dangerous then you need to seriously look at never watching tv again. You have been punk’d.

One so one story in a foreign country emerges that a kid gets his foot stuck in a escalator due to wearing croc shoes and now you want to never wear croc shoes again. What if you were wearing jeans and they got caught, would you never wear jeans again, or always wear shorts. If so then you are an idiot.

It’s programs like 20/20 and more that practically scare people into doing the dumbest things I have ever heard of.  Be afraid of hotel rooms, be afraid of water parks, be afraid of Applebees.

The list goes on and on. And if you watched and believed everything you’ve seen on tv then you would live a very sheltered life. There are far more dangerous things then wearing croc shoes. Perhaps driving to the mall. Driving to the mall is far more dangerous then taking the escalator. And if you are so afraid of your croc shoes getting stuck in a escalator then take the stairs.

Dr. Megan Leahy, a Chicago-based podiatrist with the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, told Huffington Post, “Unfortunately Crocs are not suitable for all-day use”.

She added that though Crocs “offer nice arch support,” it should not be worn over longer periods because “these shoes do not adequately secure the heel. When the heel is unstable, toes tend to grip which can lead to tendinitis, worsening of toe deformities, nail problems, corns and calluses. The same thing can happen with flip flops or any backless shoes as the heel is not secured.”

Not just Leahy, others doctors to have spoken up and said people should not wear Crocs or any clogs for too many hours a day. 

In a 2007 article for Slate titled, “How Crocs conquered the world” Meghan O’Rourke wrote, “A Croc is not a shoe; it is a Tinkertoy on steroids.”

O’Rourke spoke to Arnold Ravick, a doctor of podiatric medicine in Washington, D.C., and a spokesman for the American Podiatric Medical Association, who told her, “I’ll get people with strained arches because they’ve been running around in Crocs for five days. When it comes to shoes, people mistake comfort for support. Comfort is fool’s gold—a soft gushy shoe that makes your arches collapse. Crocs are popular because they’re inexpensive and interchangeable. For people with certain problems, they can be a good shoe. Are they good for your foot, in general? No.”
