Searching for the perfect stocking-stuffer for a person you hate? Look no further than Campus Customs.

The store has added to its list of merchandise signature Yale Crocs in classic navy, perfect for gifts for students looking to display their pride from head to Bigfoot-sized toe this holiday season. Nothing conveys a furtive insult like a gift of these orthopedic shoes, endowed with generous “ventilation ports” for the sweaty-footed. They also boast “water-friendly” buoyancy, designed to give members of intramural inner tube water polo teams an extra edge.

But even though celeb style icons such as Brooke Shields have been known to sport these bright-colored clogs on the red carpet occasionally, Mariah Xu ’16 said they are about as cute as their carnivorous, reptilian namesake.

“The only way they could be uglier is if you crossbred them with Uggs and toe shoes,” Xu said.

Should you be in the market for a fashion faux pas, Yale Crocs are on sale now at Campus Customs, which can be found at 57 Broadway.
