Despite being internationally denounced, these rubber beauties found their way into the highest level of CB fashion.

Lately here at Christian Brothers High School, the wearing of the casual footwear Crocs has become widespread all around campus. What is it that makes these casual rubber clogs so desirable? The Talon wondered, who started this trend at CB?

Kyle Smith (’15) made it his New Year’s Resolution of 2014 to bring Crocs into style. He wears his olive colored Croc’s almost daily.

“Not too many people wear crocs, so I thought it would be funny to wear the world’s ugliest shoes and make them cool,” he says.

Kyle likes that Crocs can be worn as either sandals or slippers and have holes providing ventilation so his feet can breathe.

Antonia Eliopoulos (’15), a close friend of Kyle’s, thinks Crocs are flat-out ugly, but she still supports Kyle’s decision to wear Crocs at CB.

“I’m okay with Kyle wearing Crocs as long as he doesn’t wear them in public outside of school” she says.

How can Kyle rock the Crocs at CB if they are supposedly “out of dress code”? The Talon visited Mr. Levasseur, current co-Dean of Students, for more information.

He says the clogs are not a part of CB’s dress code, but he does own a pair of Oakland A’s Crocs he received as a gift years ago to wear occasionally outside of school.

“The great thing about Crocs is that they last forever and the rubber’s very durable,” he tells the Talon. “But because they fall under the sandal category, they aren’t considered a part of dress code.”

Christina Ramirez (’16), an avid supporter of Crocs, is outraged that these comfy clogs are not a part of authorized dress code. She has two pairs that she wears to school whenever possible

“They let my swag breathe”, she says.

Although the topic is controversial, Crocs are indeed evolving here at CB. Will they make it or break it in CB’s community? The future will uncover whether or not Crocs will continue on the road to greatness and popularity.
