Croc lovers, rejoice: your favorite shoe isn’t just for gardening anymore.
18-year-old runner Benjamin Pachev completed a half-marathon in the rubber shoes last Saturday, vindicating Croc enthusiasts everywhere. His time wasn’t bad, either — 71:53 for a sixteenth place finish.
When interviewed by Fox 59 in Indianapolis, Pachev credited the shoes for his speed, asserting that wearing them is “like having a little fan that’s just streaming over your foot.”
He did not mention arch support, but, you know … details.
