This is very serious and important
Crocs have been a hot topic of debate basically since they were first introduced to the world, and the sides of the argument used to be Crocs Are Great VS. Cros Are The Worst Things On Earth What The Hell Are These, but now that we’ve all somehow just collectively decided to give Crocs a pass (which I still do not agree with, I will never wear Crocs and you can’t make me) we have been met with a new schism.
Sports Mode VS. 4WD
Apparently Crocs are a shoe of versatility, and have different modes for different purposes. When the sandal strap is flipped forward, that’s what the internet has dubbed “relaxed mode”, which I’m assuming is for things like gardening or regretting your life choices at a moderate speed, but where it gets complicated is when the strap is flipped backward, as pictured below.
This, of course, is for when shit gets serious, and you gotta do wind-sprints while making sure your Crocs don’t fall off. So if this isn’t “relaxed mode”, what is it?
Well, there are two options.
First, you have Sports Mode

Which a lot of people seem to agree with
my biggest fear is that one day I’ll have to run to save my life but my Crocs won’t be in sports mode

BUT WAIT – THERE’S ANOTHER OPTION
Tell me why my brother called it “two wheel drive” and “four wheel drive” https://t.co/uyLISDKF2G

Instead of “relaxed mode” and “sports mode”, there are those who go by “two wheel drive” and “four wheel drive”, because Crocs are obviously the Jeep Wrangler of shoes.
Out here in the Midwest we don’t say our crocs are in “sports mode” we call it “four wheel drive” pic.twitter.com/U1XCwAmDzJ

Good Morning to everyone except whoever thinks Crocs are put in “Sports Mode” and not 4WD

This has become such a heated debate that the company itself is even asking for a definitive answer
Calling all subject matter experts. What is the proper terminology? https://t.co/TqLw3DPAAo

And I think I have the answer.
Whether you call it sports mode or four wheel drive, there is only one Crocs setting that matters.
