Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan broke the news yesterday that President Bush wore Crocs – with socks – on his way to the countryside for some biking, and gave the event the thorough analysis it deserves. She naturally took the staunch anti-sock position but saved most of her scorn for the rest of us, who "wear them as if they were perfectly acceptable shoes and not the equivalent of waterproof bedroom slippers, with a similarly imprecise fit". And we look like "overgrown children" wearing these "exceedingly unattractive" creations.
Yes, this winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism is a ranter, one that’s read religiously by even the fashion-averse, like myself.
And here’s the juiciest bit in Robin’s piece: Croc Chairman Rick Sharp hosted a fundraiser for the Virginia Republican Party, attended by Bush himself. Not to go political on you, of course. I’m just saying.
I think we’re more Slogger types, anyway.
