hideous, but perfect for the job

I will start by saying the design on these is revolting! I got the red/ patterned ones - not because I thought they looked nice, but because they were the cheaper option, and the beefy soles looked like they had great grip. On the thumbnail I thought they were "meh" looking but not rancid. In real life however - Satan wouldnt wear such a shoe. I don't know who thought it would look good on paper, but the result gives me a "paintbrush accidents while decorating in the 80s, but try to make it look deliberate" vibe. Rotten.
That being said, I bought these not for the look but the functionality; and in particular the sole treads, as mentioned, drew me to this swatch rather than the more subtle designs that had flatter soles. And design aside - they're perfect.
I use these for outside jobs; gardening, taking the bins out, standing on the lawn at 6:30am questioning my life choices - that sort of thing - where my worn out old crocs were causing me to slip on damp grass and wet pathways. These give plenty of grip on all surfaces around my garden, slip on easily, stay on the feet even when active, and are true fit (I'm a half size, so I often get a 10 for comfort - but I noticed some reviews mentioning these are wide fitting, so I thought they'd be ok as a 9 - they ARE ok, but a smidge on the snug side, so I would say yep - the size 9 is a true size 9!).
So yah - I hate the look - but as theyre significantly cheaper than crocs with exactly the same performance, perfect functionality, and what feels like a good quality build - I really dont mind that they look terrible!
