You know that you should wear your seat belt in a moving car. And we count on our air bags to save our lives in car accidents. But did your know that Crocs brand shoes can save your life too?
Do you ever sit and watch the elderly in your community? Do you see how slow they walk? A good number need to use walkers. Some are confined to wheelchairs. When you see these folks do you catch yourself counting your blessings? Are you grateful that you have two good feet and can go anywhere at anytime you wish? When you see people having trouble walking you probably think that this will never happen to you. A big step you can take to insure that it won’t is to start wearing Crocs on a regular basis.
I’m sure my Grandma Hudie felt the same way as you in her own youth. In her prime she stood 6 feet 1 inch tall. In old age she walked stooped over from a lifetime of hard work. Decades of hard work done wearing cheap, dime store shoes. Cheap shoes that rubbed and rubbed until she had corns and bunions on both feet. She hobbled in old age because her feet had been destroyed from wearing the wrong shoes all her life.
Grandma gave up on living when her feet gave out on her. When she lost her independence she lost her will to live. I can still remember the site of Grandma’s feet shortly before she had to stop walking all together. They were arthritic, swollen and she’d taken a razor blade and cut slits and holes in the only pair of shoes she could wear anymore. Holes where her corns were the worst. Slits so the shoe wouldn’t rub and make her bunions more painful than they already were.
Grandma’s feet taught me a big lesson. Save and protect your life by protecting your feet. Crocs brand shoes do exactly that.
