Today in news that will undoubtedly crush your soul, The Huffington Post spoke with podiatrists who confirmed Crocs will give you some serious foot problems if you wear them long enough. "Unfortunately, Crocs are not suitable for all-day use," Chicago podiatrist Dr. Megan Leahy told The Huffington Post. Though she said they have decent arch support, they’re lacking in the heel-securing department: "When the heel is unstable, toes tend to grip which can lead to tendinitis, worsening of toe deformities, nail problems, corns and calluses."

President of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine Dr. Alex Kor said he most frequently gets complaints about arch and heel pain from patients who are primarily wearing Crocs. He, too, conceded there was some benefit to wearing them (they’re good for people with particularly high arches or excessive edema), but "under no circumstances can I suggest wearing Crocs eight to 10 hours per day," Kor said.
