I am undecided which ones to get. Are the athens just as good as the crocs?

I wore my athens crocs almost everyday of our trip. I love them! No problems at all.

It will depend on your foot. My mom wore her Croc Athens flip flops the whole time we were at WDW this past May and loved them. I wore mine 1/2 day and had to change into my Teva Mush flip flops I had brought along (just in case my Athens were uncomfortable). For the rest of the week I switched out between my Teva Mush flip flops, Reef flip flops, and Croc Beach. When I go back in Sept my Croc Athens flip flops are staying home. After 1/2 day they were causing a hot spot just beneath the big toes on both feet.

I also can't wear my Croc Niles at WDW. They cause a blister in the exact same spots the Athens do. Both the Niles and the Athens have a little ridge on the foot bed that runs just below my toes that is uncomfortable after more than a few hours. I do love both the Croc Niles and Athens to wear around here though.
