Crocs – not for everybody

It is J.’s opinion that anybody who doesn’t have a decent reaction time or good balance should not wear Crocs, or there is a risk of falling.

Crocs, beginning as boat shoes, have very good friction and on his long night calls, J. has caught his feet on the floor at least once each call. Being an average young human male, he was easily able to compensate with no greater loss than a big of dignity.

Now if he were 70 years old with the decrease in proprioception and reaction time aging brings… would he have ended up with a hip fracture?

Crocs… not for everybody, medical Crocs or not.
