Croc Adventures: Walk a Mile in My Shoes

2014-11-11 10.09.44

For those that do not know, I will working as a blog collaborator with Crocs. Basically what that means is I love the shoes so much, I kinda busted my way into this national treasure of a shoe company and they asked me to creatively collaborate with them. So every 2nd Thursday of the Month I will either write a review for Crocs, share a personal experience I have had with the shoes or feature a story for my play BODY/COURAGE where Crocs and body confidence can correlate. My tag line is: Do you have Courage for Crocs? Use #courage4crocs so I know y’all are reading : )


Let’s get to it. First before ANYTHING- visit the Crocs.com website. When I tell you all of these boots they have on this site have me going into a frenzy. Lots of sales are happening on the website too. I have my eyes on the AllCast Waterproof Duckboot (Coral/ Nightfall)!! If anyone tries to tell me Crocs are not cute…chile bye! Go on the website and get your life snatched! They are awesome and have a bunch of new products out that will make your weave slip off its tracks chile!!

Okay so anyway- I went to the UK from October 27- November 10. I stayed for a good two weeks and spent most of my time interviewing women who had been survivors of FGM for my play BODY/COURAGE.  You can find more about that experience by clicking here to find my blog entry Courage = Creating Your Own Story.  I took my Crocs with me every step of the way. You can see a photo collage at the bottom of this blog about my Croc Adventures in the UK.

I was able to stay with family which was awesome and visit my mother in law- who introduced me to Crocs- it was a wonderful trip. I also spent most of the time finishing the script for BODY/COURAGE and really spent a lot of my time trying to make the show special, unique and unforgettable.

When I arrived home to Chicago…I saw a beautiful brown box. that almost drove me to Croc tears…

I wear a size 8 and a half. The 9 fits perfectly! When I tell you I felt like I was walking on top of a heaven filled with poodles all day. I was walking like I was on the runway. No one could tell me anything!!

I stepped into work like:

  1. Loving the odd socks in the executive lounge, that takes #courage4crocs.

    I’m glad the boots are getting confidence but I already walk into every room like Thoroughly Modern Millie, sometimes I add a power lunge
