Walking on water, I like the Idea of that

But why go for 150's, there are much bigger engines on the market

Clogs on parade Now that I'd like to see!

Do you think they wear em whilst flying their Tornados around, might explain why so many of them crash

andy

get a nice orange pair....you wont lose them then

i must admit i thought crocs were a bit dodgy looking until i purchased a pair and found how amazingly comfy and practical they are.... and when around water i dont think there is anything handier.

they do of course do them in " stealth " colours !

Do you get the problem of sand and grit being carried into them through the slots and then cutting into your feet???

if walking along the beach then yes but you would get that with various shoes, you can get a bit of rubbing from the sand if you are not careful. but a quick rinse does the trick.

These Sharx look to be a cross between crocs and trainers. These don't look too bad. Clicky
like the look of those Sharx, do you know who sells them?
