Yes, you read correctly – I have done a 180 on my previous hatred of Crocs and have come around to the idea that, really, they might not be that bad. How so?

Well, has anyone read Room? It’s the story of a mother and her son, kept in an 11 foot by 11 foot room by a man who kidnapped Ma seven years previously (I’m not ruining anything here, it’s on the dust jacket) – but the point is that, at one stage in the book, five-year-old Jack becomes the proud recipient of a pair of Crocs, which he describes as shoes with holes in them. Adorable, no? Adorable.

So, Crocs has just launched Crocs Littles, ergonomic shoes for your little baby to wear to protect his or her feet from, well, the outdoors. They cost €19.95 and are, TAKE NOTE, much cooler and more child-like than those baby Nike Air Maxes you have your eye on. The end.

It might be worth also taking note of the fact that, despite the headline, Crocs are not okay for the over-threes. Just not. Never. No.
