A Mercy Killing


I bought some new work shoes from Sainsbury’s today, they cost me 20£
When I got home I ceremoniously binned my crocs 
They had holes in the soles
I said a prayer over the Willie bin 
RIP

    2. Why? Keep them for around the house, going on dog walks, just for casual wear! You cannot beat them for comfort! My feet won't tolerate anything else!

  3. I loved my crocs, but the physical therapist said they had to go- too insecure, which they truly were... Still miss 'em.

  5. I can't imagine how many miles you walked in those to get holes in the soles!

  6. The holes in crocs - where your dignity seeps out lol
    I read that online somewhere. Not for me, but I can appreciate that folk wear them for comfort.

  7. Crocs - like Tik Tok - are made for the use of under 13s. Wearing size 10 Crocs outdoors is as unacceptable as an Italian man drinking coffee with milk after 10.00 am. (I am only going on what I have been shamed into learning).

  8. it's hard to imagine you without crocs.

  9. I have always tried to imagine you without crocs.

  10. You didn’t buy NEW Crocs? What is happening to the world?!?

    ReplyDelete
  11. But are the new ones as comfortable as your crocs?

    ReplyDelete
  12. How will people recognize you if you're not wearing Crocs?

    ReplyDelete
  13. A ceremony! Very good! My daughter made me spit on my clothing items that got tossed in the trash. She thought I wouldn't pull them out after that.

  14. Wear what you like and if the Crocs are your favorites, so be it. When you need to dress, you have the perfect outfit and it is outstanding.

  15. And what is a Willie bin!? hmmmmm..... Google thinks you meant wheelie bin? Or is Willie bin a real thing in the UK?

    ReplyDelete
  16. You'll be okay, just give it time and make sure any other shoes you buy are ones you really like. I keep hearing crocs are dangerous as you can fall more easily in them. You're becoming a regular fashion icon! (just hang on to the Walking Dead t-shirts!)

    I've never tried Crocs but my feet love Birkenstocks. Perhaps I should try Crocs as that price is way lower than the Birkenstocks.
    Are your new Crocs turquoise like in the photo? No doubt they're snazzy!

    Hugs!

  19. I love my crocs. I have a black pair and a bright green pair. I had a khaki colored pair that had the solid front (no holes) and I really liked those. Then I left them on the porch and a neighbors dog chewed them up.

    Maybe the dog was trying to tell me something.

    Sorry for your loss. :-)

  20. From now on I will call my Wheelie bin Willie

  21. Am sure your crocs had a good and busy life and it is time for you to let go :) Hope you get on well with the new shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Don't be sad. They served you well and it was time to let go. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I feel your pain. Time will heal. I hope your new shoes soon become as loved as the crocs. xx

  24. Shoes are one of the main products in the warehouse where I'm employed, and trying to stack tubs full crocs is just terrible. Much, much too bulky.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Holes in the top of crocs, yes...in the bottom definitely no!!!
    RIP crocs 😄

    2. I saw a programme on tv not so long ago where some men paid a lady to do that in a wall at her home-she had a workman in especially to drill 2 different sized holes specifically which was very thoughtful of her x

  29. Take your crocs out of bin and reuse them as wall or fence planters.Will look great.

  30. I bought my first pair of crocs over the summer. Oh my. I understand now.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I bought a pair of Xero shoes for walking. I liked them so much I bought a second leather pair for work. Now, I don't wear anything else 90% of the time.

  32. To everything there is a season. Or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I thought of that, too. You won't even have to make holes in them!

    ReplyDelete
  34. You will be back in Crocs before you know it. Once you have felt the comfort and experienced the long life and usefulness it's hard to accept anything else.

    RIP Crocs ... and for how long has your wheelie bin been named Willie?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Not sure I would wish to view the contents of a "Willie bin". Sounds like old crocs would be the least of the horrors in there

  36. New crocks incoming.

    Sainsburys shoes for work? They'll torture your feet! A lot of nursing staff wear Hotter shoes, brilliantly comfy from the first wearing. More expensive than Sainsburys but they last for years.
    I wore my work pair for over 10 years, I've retired now but they're still good for gardening or walking the dog.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Well yes, Crocs are meant to have holes in the top, not the bottom!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I binned my crocs when I wore them in the rain and ended up on my backside with badly grazed elbows and a egg on the back of my head. The only time in about 20 years that I have cried in pain! Not from ditching the crocs either!
