i could never really figure out why i like my crocs or i suppose more importantly why i even dare to wear them in public until i was on this silly adventure on wikipedia today. it started with me looking up the swedish countryside but ended up answering a much bigger question in my life: why exactly do i wear those silly crocs of mine?
prior to today i would have said, "well you see they are a boulder-based company and my unjustified loyalty to a geographical location where i spent 4 years of my life makes me wear them" but that in fact isn't the answer friends. im as surprised as you are. it's actually my dear and glorious friend peter forsberg as noted in wikipedia:
"Peter Forsberg also owns a company — Pforce AB — that imports and markets Crocs shoes in his native Sweden since 2005."
now when someone asks why im wearing the most ridiculous shoes in the world i can say "it's because have an unjustified loyalty to a hockey player i once stood 2 hours in line to meet for 30 seconds."
