People Are Upcycling Crocs Into Planters For Their Garden

Crocs may be the most controversial piece of fashion to go down in history as just that: controversial. Contested. Divisive. Mysterious. Confusing. An unsettling phenomenon of sorts, if you will.

What began as a boating shoe in the early 2000s soon sailed right into the regular retail market. Some people were horrified, while others found them to be a rather comfortable slip-on.

Some people love 'em so much, they're even turning them into garden planters.

Yes, you read that correctly. People are turning Crocs into planters for their gardens.


You may already wear Crocs IN the garden, but did you ever look down at your feet and think that they needed to be part of your garden?
