crocs

two years ago i bought one of my very favorite pair of shoes.  they are a khaki colored canvas "santa cruz" style shoe - versatile, cute and comfortable.  and they are crocs (please don't judge).  unfortunately the design of the shoe is defective, and after about a year of wear, a hole formed in the toe.  because of the common defect, crocs no longer makes these shoes in women's, so i've kept this pair around hoping people overlook my toes popping out and thinking that crocs will someday bring them back.

for easter, my sweet husband performed a miracle.  in my easter basket were a pair of these exact shoes in light green!  he quickly explained how he had been searching and tracked down the manufacturer in china.  after my excitement in seeing they were the exact same as my old pair and not knock-offs, he later confessed that he didn't just buy 1 pair.  he bought 5 in total.  all in different colors.  at this rate, they should last me about 10 years.  maybe if i'm careful the will last even longer.

what a gem this man is.  does anyone wear a size 7?

Honestly that is the nicest & most thoughtful thing. He checked vendors in CHINA for heavens sake! I love it. I'm a size 7 but I think you need all of those colors. :)

Looks like Jonathan could do a side business! And Jon does not do things in a small way. They are great shoes, now you need outfits for all those colors:). --Jane
