Happy Crocs Day! Which of The PC Crocs Ad Photos is Worst?

It’s Crocs Day! According to whoever it is that decides these national day things. Anyway, Crocs! Which I basically lived in for my last year pre-foot surgery, but now that my foot is healed, I get to wear pretty shoes again. And as we all know, Priyanka Chopra became Crocs brand ambassador recently which is just SO WEIRD.

Crocs! The shoes recommended by podiatrists! Very popular with people with foot problems (I wore them for my toe thing, my Mom wears them for her Planters fiaciitis, etc.). Super wide at the toe, very supportive base. And they are all rubber, so you can just rinse them off in the sink if they get dirty. Therefore also very popular with healthcare professionals and similar messy-job on your feet a lot kind of people (food service, childcare, etc.). And glamorous movie star Priyanka Chopra Jonas is their model?

The best explanation I could come up with is that she is reaching out to the massive South Asian healthcare worker market. And I guess also the South Asian “mothers of small children who don’t have time to wear nice shoes” market. Anyway, the attempt to have “glamorous but not too glamorous because you are still wearing crocs” photoshoots has resulted in some quite awkward looks.

Here I am in my mountain chalet, wearing a coat indoors, but even though it is quite cold, I would rather wear my no insulation white crocs than anything else. Also, I am wearing thin nylon socks which would really look better with heels or something more formal, but no! I totally want to wear crocks with them! White crocs with black hose, TOTALLY NORMAL!!!!

Here I am, ready to power walk over to the red carpet in my comfy shoes, before dropping the windbreaker and switching to heels for the event. Absolutely a thing people do, just like you can wear crocs to your job and then change to heels, so can I!

Here I am in daytime business attire, and also rubber sandals. A regular thing to do, rubber sandals and expensive jackets go together perfectly. And I always stand just right balanced on one foot to show off my shoes.

Here I am lounging around the house in my crocs and my satin jacket that coordinates with them. I clearly have a matching jacket for every pair of crocs I own, it’s those little touches that pull an outfit together. Not that anyone will see it, because I am just here, lounging at home!

Here I am having my morning coffee in my all wood breakfast room where I have to wear crocs as slippers to avoid splinters as I do my leg lifts against my strange wooden stairs.

No shade on PC, it’s all on Crocs and their effort to rebrand themselves as “not the boring company of elderly people with foot problem and tired healthcare workers, we are young and exciting!” But boy, you end up with some really dumb photo concepts when you try to make practical rubber shoes exciting!

    • And is it just me, or is she weirdly hunched forward looking in that pose? I can’t tell if she is standing oddly to maintain balance, or if they photoshopped her face oddly, but something is wrong.

  1. The stupidest is the red carpet one. What is going on this photo? A silver sequin dress, blue windbreaker and pink crocs? The party was over and she went out with her dog before going to bed?

    The worst one: The rubber sandals one. I like the clothes (and sandals too!) but the pose is stupid. She looks like she is in a like to bathroom.

    • Agreed, the red carpet is the dumbest. The pose is so unnatural. It has all the awkwardness of the whole concept – glamorous! but not really! because she’s wearing Crocs! – at its silliest.

      • Yes! And maybe without the windbreaker it could work? Like, “once I get passed the red carpet, I change into my comfy crocs after events”. But with the windbreaker, it looks like she is going for a job in an evening gown for no reason.

    • Yes! She looks just like she is in line for the bathroom! Which, to be fair, is a moment when you want comfortable (and possibly washable) shoes.

    • Yeah, that seemed a beat of a reach to me too. But maybe it is part of the “crocs” thing? She is supposed to be a get up and go and do things person who needs comfortable shoes.

  2. I also wondered about the “activist” part. Maybe she tweeted something politically aware at one point?

    The dumbest is the first one, because everyone knows Crocs make you fall down and wearing them with hose would be insanity. I can’t look at that picture without imagining a broken ankle.

    • I hadn’t even thought about that! Yes, you are so right. I walk carefully in crocs even with barefeet, hose is insanity. She must have slipped her regular shoes off right before the photo shoot and put the crocs on and no one noticed.
