Mum proudly handed out the fake "crocs" today for the grandchildren to wear in the summer.
The only problem is that they have the word DOGGERS emblazoned over the front grin
Mum didn't know why me and my sisters were laughing hysterically.
Ill have to explain wont I?

ClaraOswald Sun 14-Apr-13 19:02:55

I agree, pics or it didn't happen grin

That's brilliant grin

No, they really can't. Could you get charms or stickers or something to disguise or cover the words?

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Sun 14-Apr-13 19:04:55

Is there some way you could cover the 'O' and make it an 'I' ?

If it was me, I think this will be a barefoot summer grin

No way!

LagomOchLyckaSwede Sun 14-Apr-13 19:06:46

So, like this?

Remotecontrolduck Sun 14-Apr-13 19:15:24

Oh my actual god grin

UnChartered Sun 14-Apr-13 19:20:10

some of those look like croc footie boots, Lagom confused

LagomOchLyckaSwede Sun 14-Apr-13 19:23:47

I don't know UnChartered I just typed in 'doggers shoes' tbh.

You were lucky that's the image you got if you searched for "doggers shoes" Lagom grin

Unless they are much older teens they won't care. I can't imagine even my pretty clued up DD(15) would know about dogging.

I wouldn't connect dogger on DCs shoes with it either.

Could you buy them the book Dogger by Shirley Hughes and say that they are special Dogger shoes smile

Ledkr Sun 14-Apr-13 20:37:38

Ha ha I can't believe you found them online.
Not even very nice are they?
No they don't know what it means but I do!
Dd1 isn't keen on hers I suspect and my toddler currently lives in wellies and a tu tu so she will be ok.
I did think you'd like them though.

Get a Big marker pen and colour the name out!

LooseyMy Sun 14-Apr-13 23:25:08

Crocs (the real thing) are horrific anyway, I couldn't ever put ds in them!

Oh dear. I wouldnt let my DC where real crocs -- because they are revolting-- let alone those.

apostropheuse Mon 15-Apr-13 00:09:17

I had to look up doggers.

I had no idea such a term existed.

Of course I knew people did that ...just not that it had a name!

I'm honestly not that naive either!
