Crocs Invade Campus!

by Lauren Raziano, Staff Writer

With the summer season around the corner, students are ready to rock their warmer footwear, including Crocs. Crocs are considered one of the world’s 10 largest non-athletic footwear brands, but some students like to live life on the risky side and opt for the “sports” mode, with the back strap down. Crocs can be paired with any outfit and other students
go for a low key look with “chill” mode, with the back strap up for easy slide in and out activities. To make Crocs more personalized, some students choose to add Jibbitz, which are small charms of letters, images, characters, or pop culture references that can be popped into the air holes of the Crocs. As a college student, Crocs are a great way to have a ver- satile shoe which can add a pop of personality to any fashionable fit.

I got these at some point before last summer.

I have no fashion sense really, so I wear my crocs with anything and all the time. It doesn’t match most of the time. But my friends say sweats and a cardigan. NEVER WITH SOCKS, people who do that sicken me.

Sports mode all the way, it’s the only answer.
