Since when did crocs get cute?

Crocs, a feared word amongst the fashionable. When they first came out a few years back, the only reaction I could muster was, "are they serious??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!????!?!?!?!?!?!"-and yes, all those exclamation and question marks were necessary to convey my terror.
But something 
strange happened over the course of the last year or two--
crocs got cute.

Now I know that no matter how "cute" they get, they still won't be able to shake off their past identity as the horrific clunky boats-disguised-as-shoes...

But a few months ago I spotted some cute shoes at a mall and was shocked to find that they were crocs. That's right, crocs are (seemingly) molting out of their ugly old self and transforming to something people other than safari workers/gardeners can wear!

You've got to admit these shoes are uncharacteristically adorable, non?

They're suede, too! I can't believe it, but I think I have to reluctantly admit that crocs are getting cuter and cuter.

It's a weird world we live in, girls.

I honestly like the Spartan, mary-janelike ones. But my whole family suddenly went all Croc on me and I don't want to give in.

as much as I kind of think these are cute, I will NEVER wear crocs.
When they first came out I thought someone had taken too many crazy pills. I also thought they'd never catch but now EVERYONE wears them.. in the garden, at the beach - yeah, I can understand. but down town and out to lunch, seriously, ew.
never ever.
