My love for these isn't a Croc!

Here's shameless pitch for Crocs. These shoes are not only comfortable, versatile and environmentally friendly, but they now come in many styles and colors.

The first pair of Crocs I ever saw was in the summer of 2004, when my sister and I were on a white-water rafting trip on the Nantahala River in North Carolina, and our guide was wearing a pair of the clunky original clogs. She raved about them, saying every one of her colleagues wore them, too. (They were all basically college kids on a fun summer fling -- er, job! -- so fashion wasn't exactly high on their list!)

I didn't care for the style, however, so I held off on buying a pair -- until the cuter Mary Jane style came along. I bought a pair in pink, and got much use out of them. They're still a staple in my wardrobe, especially during the cooler months here in South Florida.

Last spring, I came across a display of Crocs in store that featured the Cleo slide, and I fell in love! So, I bought a pair of the celery green ones and proceeded to live in them all last summer -- they REALLY come in handy if you spend any time on a boat. I loved them so much, I bought a second pair in turquoise.

And recently, a friend of mine was sporting the new Cypress high-heel sandal -- adorable!

So, if you're looking for a hardy, affordable new pair of summer sandals, or two: Check out these links!
