How long they'll stick around -- or whether they'll become just another forgotten footwear fad -- is yet to be determined. (For more on the Colorado-based Crocs, check out the cover story beginning on page 14.)

    What do you think of the Crocs fad? I'm sick of seeing them. I think they're kind of ugly and chunky.

    What's the weirdest shoe fad ever? Those platforms with the goldfish in them from the '70s.

    What's the best shoe ever? Any skate shoe, like Vans, is comfortable. After you've had them for a few years and they're worn in, they're so comfortable. They're like slippers.

    On a scale of 1 to 10, how smelly are your feet? That depends on what day it is. If I have clean socks, probably, like, a 3.
