The trend started on video-sharing platform Tik-Tok (Picture: Twitter)If you haven’t been able to wear your Crocs outside for fear of someone saying ‘what are thooose?’ then don’t worry, there’s a new use for it.
The infamous shoes have been ridiculed for a long, long time but now folks on the internet have made them relevant again.
That’s because people are now filling up their Crocs with shaving foam and stepping on it.
You are probably asking why – but once you see the results and feel that tingly sensation rolling down your spine, you’ll see.
The concept is simple and yet so appealing: step into the shoe full of foam and send it squirting in all directions.
It doesn’t even have to be a Croc either, anything with holes works, the more holes the better.
It’s the viral trend that’s oddly satisfying and people are even calling it theraputic.
The exact origin of the trend is unknown but it seems to have gained popularity on video-sharing platform TikTok.
Oddly satisfying or gross?After one Twitter use from Haverhill, Suffolk, shared a video he found on TikTok, it caught the attention of Croc Shoes who also shared it.
Clearly pleased with all the free publicity, they wrote on: ‘Thank you internet, for giving us what we never knew we needed’.
People online were immediately drawn to it. ‘What a mood’ wrote one person while another said: ‘Omg that’s satisfying’.
Others drew comparisons to the feeling of popping a zit. ‘Me squeezing my nose to get all the whiteheads out,’ wrote one person.

But of course, it’s not for everyone. Some people did not enjoy it at all, they wrote: ‘Disgusting,’ ‘Sorry not sorry it’s awful, made me cringe so hard,’ and ‘I’m suffering’.
One forward-thinker asked: ‘Do I smell a new way to make spaghetti?’
If that’s exactly the kind of frothy mess you’re into, you might want to grab the iconic clog and get to work.
But it’ll probably make a bit of a mess so we recommend doing it in the bathroom. Croc responsibly, people.
