Boy's Life Saved Thanks to Hideous Rubber Shoes
Despite what we have declared previously, there is, it seems, one -- and only one -- reason for wearing Crocs. If ever you're, say, in a bathtub and want to use the hair dryer (not a good idea) or find yourself at the top of a flagpole during a summer thunderstorm (not a good idea either), make sure you're wearing a pair of the otherwise inhuman sandal/shoes made famous by Mario Batali and numerous toddlers. Take it from the very lucky Harley Sutton-Dormer, who was in a swimming pool changing room with his mom when he picked up a hair dryer that sent a bolt of electricity down his body. He suffered burns but, according to doctors, his ugly-ass shoes saved his life. Crocs, we salute you. [JDoll]
