Lithuanian Rabbi Elyashiv has ruled Crocs should not be worn on Yom Kippur because "they are too comfortable -- so they don't provide the level of suffering one should feel on the holiday," according to a story on ynetnews.com, the English-language sister-site to Israel's largest news and content site.
The ruling from the influential rabbi could pose a challenge for many Jews, who have favored wearing the shoes at synagogue services in recent years, Ynet says.
We can't help but pose this question: Isn't wearing unsightly Crocs in public suffering enough?

It's not those attending religious services who opt for Crocs -- lots of of celebrities love them, too.
