The first time i saw a pair of these shoes on someone I remember thinking "ugh.. how horrendous." I hated on em' for a long while until I started working with my "employer" doing stone masonry. I remember wearing converse to work and my feet were sweating to high hell. Dirt and tiny pebbles kept finding their way into my shoes. Irritating enough to stop working and clean out your shoes! My "employer" and I had a long discussion about all the benefits and perks of wearing crocs. They were all true.
If you like the outdoors; crocs are definitely decent all around shoes for spring and summer.
