ok, is it just me or are these shoes everywhere !! !!
went to the Zoo this week and I think we saw them on 40% of feet, men, women & Kids... My DD has a pair and we had people coming up to us asking us where we got them.
CRAZY ... I'm looking at getting a pair, but for some reason they never have pink in my size. :confused3

well that's the Problem ... I think I'm a 6 but might need a 7 ... i'm not sure because all they have is large sizes... today at the Bay the actually had size 5, but that was way to small.


mousy-in-canada... I DH thinks they are cool but would NOT wear them... even tough his brother in law has a pair and we've sene various men with them on... I actually like them... ANYWAY I think I would got with the light blue ... I would be worried the white would get worne out dirty white or turn yellow !?!?!?

Are they really, really, really that comfortable?

Are the "real" Croc knock-offs okay? I've tried on the "harder" sole ones, and just didn't find them comfortable..saw the spongier ones, are they more like the "real" crocs?

So for now, I'm still Crocless and Proud of it!!...unless you guys can really really convince me!! LOL!

I know more people that don't like them than do. I don't see many of them around the London area I guess they just aren't that popular here or people here just don't care about that trend. One guy at work wears them only because he paid for them he says they are very hot and make his feet sweat like crazy.

They are not as great as everyone says they are, I also wear mine ONLY because I paid for them and could not get a refund.

They are not good when they get wet because they make your foot slip and slide.... they are ugly, huge and ...... well I will just stop there.

If you want to try Croc's but don't like the look of the Regular Croc's try the Flip Flop type. Both of us didn't like the look of them, but bought the flip flops and LOVE them. This way you get the comfort, but also a bit more stylish!
We bought ours in Buffalo, but the did have the flip flops at National Sports.

Quote from Money Mag

Crocs started selling its trademark comfortable, colourful shoes -- they come in everything from chocolate to turquoise -- in 2002, when it reported a meagre $24,000 (U.S.) in revenue with 1,500 pairs sold. First-quarter revenue this year was $44.8-million, up more than fourfold from the same period last year. Profit was $6.4-million or 17 cents a share.The company now projects second-quarter profit of between $62-million and $65-million, up from $53-million to $55-million. Share profit is now estimated to be between 23 and 25 cents

Why would you wear your Crocs just because you paid for them if you think they are so ugly?

I don't think you should continue to wear them and suffer through such a fashion faux pas! :rolleyes:

Maybe you should donate them to your local clothing drive. I'm sure someone will appreciate them.

And every time I see someone with them on, I think:
"Those things have GOT to be comfortable, 'cause they ain't hittin' it in the good looks department!!"

(Would I wear really pretty shoes if they were really uncomfortable??
Yep.::yes::
I can always sit down, and still look good!! :teeth: :teeth: )

I was bit by the croc bug and I still think they are ugly. I have to say they are growing on me tho. I just bought a pair in the sky blue colour and I got my kids a pair, ds navy and dd pink. They LOVE their crocs and so do I. They are VERY comfie and I just went and ordered some jibbitz for them to pretty them up a bit. At first I thought they were a fashion faux pas but now that everyone is wearing them, I don't stick out like a sore thumb. I am now looking to get a pink pair as well. Their website has many other styles and in fact the Nile is much prettier but I think it isn't sold in Canada yet but shipping is pretty cheap.

Rock your Crocs!! :cool1:

Well I already take a larger shoe size and they look huge on my feet! Plus my foot is on the medium to narrow side and they are way too wide to me. I can't imagine walking around with something so loose on my feet!

I also tried on a thong-style and they are way too wide, as well!

What's with the really wide width with them all?

Best shoes I ever bought. THere are nine ladies where I work (waitresses )and we all have crocs. Don't buy knock offs they are definately not the same. I have the open toed sandal with a back strap and I wear them eveywhere. Cost $24 in southern Bruce county.

Bought a pair and returned it the next day - couldn' t do it - they were not only UGLY they didn' t fit my foot properly and looked HUGE on me - I have big enough feet already and don't need a shoe to make them look bigger :rolleyes: Plus when I wore them around the house they made my foot feel 'slimy' :lmao:

Ugly shoes = $40.00

I agree they are ugly but once I tried them on, I was hooked!! :teeth: They are absolutely the most comfortable things I have ever worn. We all have them (DH, DS and DD) and we are now all croc lovers! I am off in the summer so I haven't worn them to work but for walking, shopping, etc. I love them. Mine are beige (quite neutral) so they don't stand out so much. I did try on a few imitations and they are not the same--I would avoid them.

connorsmom911
07-16-2006, 01:00 PM
LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!

I own 3 pairs and wear nothing else (well, except my work shoes because I have to, but at night on break I switch to my crocs). Don't settle for the knock-offs, they are not the same and you definitely get what you pay for. I wore mine to Disney in April, and while I did get blisters, it was more due to the amount of walking I did (I was the fast-pass volunteer for the family), but I will say my crocs are the only thing that let me keep walking! I couldn't even get from bed to bathroom in the morning until I put them on. They are very cushy and after a while, form to your foot.

A great advantage to them is they are washable!! At AK I spilled 2 large drinks (hate the no lid thing) all over me and my crocs. Quick trip to the bathroom, washed them off in the sink, dried for a few seconds under the dryer and voila! no sticky shoe syndrome for the rest of the day.

I also wore them on the beach, in the water, and if I needed to get a stone or shell off my foot, took them off and they float!!

I totally used to be a birkenstock girl, but if they got wet or if my feet were really sweaty, they stayed wet and slimy and gross. In crocs, they dry quickly and even though I still sweat, they don't stay slimy and they don't smell!! Also love the easy clean-up compared to other shoes.

Now I'm just trying to justify more!! I have navy, khaki and fushia, but would love orange and lime green too!! My father even got a pair!!! And he's ultra conservative!!! But he's diabetic and could not resist how comfortable they are. I want to get some for my ds, but he keeps outgrowing shoes at such a pace now, I don't know.

For fit questions, go to their web-site, www.crocs.com They are supposed to fit a little loose and big, that way there is no friction. They do ship in Canada, my co-worker ordered online and had them shipped, very reasonable too and no customs or duty so I'm thinking they shipped from within Canada as they do manufacture in Canada too.

Also, love the jibbitz jewellry for them. My mom just bought me a pink ribbon and gave it to me last night to wear on my fushia ones while doing my fundraising today for the big Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk. It is so cute, but I can see the jewellry will be just as addictive as the crocs!!!

There is a company in BC now making a Canadian version called holey soles www.holeysoles.com they say they are the exact same as crocs just much cheaper they had them at the priceclub in London south for 19.99. No matter how comfortable people say they are I will stick with my running shoes and fashion awareness before I would ever put my feet in those atrocities.

You know... sweat + plastic = sticky????

And, what is this jewelry that you are talking about??? :wizard:

As I posted on teh first page the one guy here at work hates them for that he says his feet sweat like crazy in them as they are just made of foam rubber material and get pretty darn warm. He does say they get kinda slimy inside but atleast he said you could wash them out LOL.

CdnMom2
07-17-2006, 06:06 PM
They're supposed to not get slimey. They are made of a special foam so that doesn't happen. I did wear mine at WDW last July & no sweat issues. Even more to the point I wore mine yesterday & today around here baking in the plus 30 heat & humidity (& WDW in July was supposed to be hot -- hah! at least the air-conditioning was close there) & again, just fine. I love them for the yard, gardening, easy slip-on slip-off, get wet, no probs at beach/waterpark. Again, great for WDW especially if any rainstorms. We were at MGM for Hurricane Dennis which was a giant thunderstorm in Orlando & just kept on going. Yay Crocs!

BUT, they ARE UGLY! BUT I still love them. Nothing better for WDW. Especially with the little strap (needed for Soarin') or no strap for the rest of the time. No sore feet or knee issues.

There's lots of talk on the Budget Boards about these. Of course, YMMV as it did for f4disneyfan's colleague.

My kids have the cayman style and they said that as hot as they are in this heat wave their feet are not hot.
So I don't think they get slimy, at least not the ones I got them. I have the athens so being a flip flop they do not get hot either.

Mine don't get slimy either. And when my mom and I were on a cruise my feet were killing me in St. Thomas while I was wearing flip flops so we stopped by a store that had crocs and got me my first pair. I have to say, my feet were in heaven for the rest of that trip whenever I wore my crocs and still are when I wear them :) I now own 3 pairs, light blue caymans, and niles and professionals in pink :) I think they're actually kind of cute lol! They grow on you :rotfl:

Yes they are crocks with a little difference here and there for patent purposes. Plus hopleysoles are cheaper than crocs 19.99 vs 34.99 for the crocs. This is what I was told by a rep from holeysoles I spoke with over the weekend at Costco (priceclub).

The 8's my 2 little toes next to the baby seem to be peeking through the holes..with the 9's there is a lot of extra room all over the shoe

What do you suggest, because I am really tempted to order the Reliefs on-line because I also have a heal spur?

I ordered size nine and two turbo straps so if they are too big I can adjust.

I always make sure that I have the same colour that they put on or I purchase it at the time for touch ups. Sometimes I bring my own polish for just that reason. I have thick nails on my big toes and they rub so I make sure that I get the most out of the pedicure by being able to do a fix up. I've been to a couple of places that give you a nice little sample bottle...but those were the really expensive places like Evelyn Charles

I don't have crocs yet but if I recall the top of the toe bed is quite raised up so there may not be any rubbing. In the meantime, you have to break them in so you might just want to take a little or long walk back to the salon and get the touch up paint.

I have to agree with the Dr. on this one. I've been wearing them for about 2 yrs now and I have a heal spur. It is very sore all the time. I've got orthodics and wear my running shoes more now. All I ever wore was the crocs though and I'm paying for it now.

I have two pair of crocs. One is too big and the other is too small. They rub against the inside of my foot causing blisters. Does everyone wear socks with theirs. They look ugly enough without wearing white ankle socks with them :teeth: I bought a pair of matching colour socklets but they kept slipping down when I walked.

I finally bought a pair on Friday, the flip flop style and I love them! I just cannot bring myself to buy the "ugly" ones. From what other people say it is wise to not wear them all the time but they are great for weekends. I was on the boat yesterday and they were great for jumping up on dock, into the boat etc.

So if I get this right I can get a pair of holeys for Can$20 rather than buy a pair of Crocs here for 30? I think I'd give them a go for that - is there a stockist in Vancouver? If not can someone please open one by the middle of august ;)

Forgive me if this has already been posted, or is old news, but I just got this in an email from my TA:

Crocs to Debut Disney Footwear in Fall

NIWOT, Colo. (Business Wire) – Crocs, Inc. announced that it will introduce a limited edition line of footwear featuring some of Disney's most popular characters. The new line, which will be called "Disney by CROCS," will be available at select US retail locations prior to the 2006 Holiday season with an expanded product line launch occurring in Spring 2007. The Disney by CROCS line, which is targeted towards both children and adults, will debut with special-edition Mickey Mouse die-cut Adult Beach and Kid's Cayman models. These styles will be available in a broad range of two-toned color pallets including Mickey's signature black and red. Other models include an array of unique designs emphasizing the distinctive personalities of Disney's characters including Mickey and Friends, Winnie the Pooh and Friends, Disney Princess, Disney Fairies, as well as Pirates of the Caribbean and Disney*Pixar's Toy Story and Cars.


I think Disney-fying them is the only way I would wear them! :rotfl:

I wouldn't wear them even if Mickey himself made them and hand delivered them to me.

After returning home last sunday from our holiday to Canada and America, in the last few days of the holiday i bought a pair of crocs. When we went to Marineland and fed the Beluga whales the majority of staff were wearing them. What did make me laugh was seeing small children with a bright green croc and an orange one.
