I see tons of people wearing these everday this summer (here in Canada)

are they that comfortable?

For me I just dont like the look of them, and I dont want "keepsake" pics of me in big clunky pink (that is the colour I would get I assume) shoes

THOUGHTS please

Thanks :thumbsup2

am the wrong one to ask if you are looking for someone to stop you from buying one... me and my Dsis have every single color with the "Beach" model... am not sure about the new style "maryjane" but I trully trully love them.. I have 3-4 heel spur on both heels... and this one doesnt bother and alleviates my pain

Personally I returned mine. They come in sizes like medium (8-9) and large (10-11). My husband who is a size 9 mens had no problems with the large size and kept his. I am a size 9 womens (size 8 mens) and the mediums were too tiny and the large ones way too big. my feet hurt wearing the mediums.

The point here is buy a pair, keep the receipt and return em if they hurt you.

Really, PINK????


I'm gonna have to turn you in to DISUNC about this one, I'm afraid! :hyper2: Yep, this is all going in my report.. :rotfl:



I really don't like the way they look that much either...except the little ones I got for DS6-they are so cute.. :p But they are soooo light-they weigh nothing. And they are comfy. I gave in and got some look-a-likes at Goodies-on sale for $7.50. I would NOT pay $30 for them..heck, I haven't even had the nerve to wear them, and I've had them for 3 weeks... :crazy:
I also had trouble with sizing when I tried on the real thing..I wear a 7, can't wear a 5-6, or 7-8 or whatever "double" sizing they use...

I got mine in LIMEGREEN, of course. :cool1:

Just go try some on. If they are as comfortable on your feet as they are on mine, I won't have to sell you on them - they will sell themselves.

(And if you get them in yellow you could look like you have Mickey Mouse feet)

If your into wearing bubblegum colored, rubber shoes that collect rivers of foot sweat...Crocs are for you!

I've been thinking about buying my first pair - however I have very wide feet, would anyone know if they are made "Wide"??

They are comfortable, and come in many styles. The best thing is to find some to try on first. Our local Hallmark stores carry them. You don't need the clunky ones, Crocs makes flip-flops and slide sandals, too. If you like them and they are a tad too tight, use a hair dryer to mold them to better fit.

Each style has different sizing: some are just small-medium, etc, others come in number sizes, The official web site www.crocs.com shows all the styles, sizes and where to buy them in your local area. We have the clog type for the cooler weather and flip-flops for the summer. Between DD and I, there are 6 pairs of various styles in the house.

As far as the price, I have foot problems so I pay $30-$40 for any shoes I buy, I have to have good support, so the price isn't an issue.

WE love Crocs :thumbsup2 No problem with sweaty feet here. They are the best thing I have ever worn. Last year people laughed at me over my shoes and not the all have a pair. They are not plastic :love:

I think Crocs look like clown shoes. Seriously.

My mother loves them. I have tried a pair of hers on, and I admit they are comfortable. They feel like nothing is on your foot. But honestly, couldn't they have designed them to at least be attractive.

Everyone in my family has at least one pair and we all love them.

We are planning on wearing them on our upcomming trip to WDW. They are so light and comfortable.

The sizing is very flexible. My first pair I bought was felt a little small, but I wear them with the strap up and they are great. The next time I got a pair, I bought the larger size, and they are a little large. So, I wear them with the heel strap down.

Crocs are as comfortable as they are ugly! :rotfl:
They feel like you are not wearing anything on your feet. I have them, so do my DD and my DS. My DH just laughs at them and wont try them. I wish he would because I know he also would think they are so comfortable.

Mine are NOT:
rubber
sweaty
pink

Mine ARE:
black
tan
extremely comfy

I started wearing crocs a year ago. I have wacky knees and feet. At this point in my life I don't give a r---- a-- about how the shoes LOOK......I care about how my feet and legs feel. I would wear, seriously, anything that would make it possible to walk or stand like a regular person. For me, these shoes are the best I have found for my particular foot and leg problems. I did try the Airwalks and they do not have the same 'ahhhh' factor that the original crocs do. But, they may be good for you. Only you can tell.




Try, otherwise you will never know.

Good Luck with them!

I too got sucked in by these shoes... the knockoffs that walmart does aren't really comfy to me... but the Airwalk ones I got at Payless for 14.99 are like walking on pillows... yes... they aren't the prettiest shoe... but when it comes to walking for hours and hours for days and days at WDW I'd rather comfort than style if you are worried about the look, put a pair of flip flops in your bag for wearing in special pic's or something

My mom is a nurse & first bought a pair of Crocs about 2 years ago. I thought they would be extremely hot & nasty, until I got a pair. I got hot pink (it's my favorite color) and I wear them so much! They are wonderful pool/water shoes, and I even wear them in the rain during the summer. In response to the wideness of them, I have a wide foot and I am fine in the normal Crocs.

I would say to get a pair and try them out for a day. I think you'll like them, but if you don't take them back. :)

They are so comfortable. I too thought they were ugly but we were at a cheer competition in Indianapolis in March and we were there all day long. A friend of mine had two pairs and let me borrow a pair. I wore them both days to the compeitions and they were the best. I will make sure I have mine every time we go to competitions this year because I don't think I could get through the weekend without having them.

I've been thinking about buying my first pair - however I have very wide feet, would anyone know if they are made "Wide"??

I have wide feet and I have a few pairs of Airwalks including the flip flop type and they fit just fine. I tell anyone if they are considering getting a pair but don't want to spend the money for Crocs go to Payless and get the Airwalks. They are half the cost and feel the same on your feet as real ones. I got mine there after reading about them here on the boards.

Bought two pairs at once! I got the light blue and the "putty" colored ones! I have not had the blue ones off but to go into the pool! :rotfl: They are very litght and confortable. I have not had a problem with perspiring at all. DGD got stung by a bee and could not get any type of shoe on. She wore the crocs until the swelling went down~! It took four days for me to get them back!!! :rotfl: She wouldn't wear them either, because she thought they were ugly. The other day, she asked if I was taking them to WDW. Think that she is going to be borrowing them!! :rotfl: Saturday, I went on-line and bought the Nile style. Cannot wait!!!! :cool1: pixiedust:

My DD5 had to have a pair, so I gave in a bought her a pair of the light pick ones at our local health food store. She loved them and swore they were more comfortable than any other shoes, so I tried them. I tried both the Beach and Caymen, but the sizing was wrong for me, either way too big or way too small. I'm a 7 1/2 to 8. Our local mall had a stand selling a brand called Holeys, so I tried them. It took about three wearings before they were really comfortable, maybe it takes that long for it to really mold to your foot, but now I wear them all the time - shopping, Disneyland etc. I now have two pairs, dark blue and green, and DD has the pink and purple.

I have heard that each style fits differently, so try them out.

Good luck.

I haven't actually seen real crocs, only offbrands. So I tried on the ones at Walmart & Target. Then I tried on the ones from Payless, wow those were nice. Personally, if the real crocs are comfy like the ones fom Payless, then I'd spend the $15 more and get the crocs. I can see why people like them.

maybe you need to try the "cayman" model for it comes with narrow and wide and they come in the single digits sizes... the "beach comes in as s.m.l.

also now I found the "cloud" but only in four colors .. no lime :( but it has a elevated heel .. it was designed as diabetic shoes but it also works even better with my heel spur... so "cloud" get to be used at work and "beach is for play at the World :).. They even have boots for winter! To match my scrubs uniform! :rotfl:

I love my crocs.
I had 3 pair and I recently bought one of the clouds for my DH and the Relief for myself from the Crocs RX line.
My DH loves his clouds and wears them all the time.
It has helped his back and can stay on his feet much longer than he ever could before.

:woohoo: CROCS ROCK!!!! :thumbsup2

I'm a nurse who used to have very sore feet at the end of each day. Not since I've gotten my Crocs. They are SOOOOOO comfy.

For me, the sizing of the Cayman style is much better than the Beach. I didn't like the S-M-L thing, either. Also, I think the Cayman is better for wide feet. My feet are very wide. In the Beach style, the medium fit in length, but felt too narrow. The large fit in width, but were way too long. The Cayman is just right in width and length. I'll have to check out their website again to see the new styles.

My DD said they were the most ugly things she'd ever seen in her life.....UNTIL she tried them on! Now, she has purple ones and adores them. My younger DS says he'd never want a pair because they're so ugly, yet I catch him wearing mine around the house all the time. Older DS and DH think they're hideous and just laugh. We'll see who's laughing in comfort and who's feet are sore at Disney World! :rotfl: :rotfl2:

LOVE 'EM! My DH bought a pair last year and I thought they were the ugliest shoe I've ever seen. Of course he first heard about them here on the disboard. So this summer I saw the thong sandal style at Dick's and gave them a try. After wearing them for a week or two I decided that one pair was not enough! Of course I needed different colors. Just happened to have MIL with us when we stopped at Dick's and she ended up buying a pair. They may not be much to look at, but they feel GREAT! I now have two pairs of sandals and (ugh!) a pair of the clog w/holes style. Sneakers have always been my shoe of choice when at WDW, but this past June I wore my Crocs and never took my sneakers out of the suitcase. I probably won't even pack them for my visit to WDW next week!

I think they would just look as silly as the pink so either way, I am going to look like a "dork" :rotfl: I guess - no offense to anyone.

OH YES they come in LIMEGREEN!!! Go back to your LGMHPC thread and see the discussion about them...They are part of the official uniform for attracting other Dissers! ( I was just kidding-I won't really report you to DISUNC if you really want to get the PINK .) :rotfl:

I LOVE the comment about them looking like clown feet..And the yellow ones looking like Mickey feet...

I am afraid to drive in them, they are so clunky. I guess I could kick them off in the car, anyon have difficulty driving and more importantly, stopping?? :drive:

I proudly own orange, off white and black
thinking of getting a new pair with no holes in the top
for fall!
a woman in a grocery store a couple of weeks ago walked by me in an aisle when i was looking at an item on a shelf
and loudly proclaimed "boy-you can see those shoes everywhere!" i was wearing my orange ones.....
I just looked at her....said nothing/////

I live in the middle of nowhere...and not many people have these shoes. The generics are easy to find at walmart but the real crocs were hard to find. Anyway, I found a pair and I love them! I do notice that people are looking at my feet in an odd way but too bad! I LOVE MY CROCS! You have to just get a pair and try them!

DD and I love our crocs, we have had them since Feb, and they are pretty much her shoe of choice.... I wear mine most visits to Disney (we visit a park 3 or more times a month for day trips), they are red, so I dont' wear them every day.... They are also great for around the pool when I am hosing down the lanai.... I have even worn them in the pool and they feel cool when walking and treading water!

My sister bought a pair in May before she even left MCO when I took her into the store - she has added another pair to her wardrobe. Same trip we bought my great nephew a couple days into the trip since the rest of us had them he wanted them... he loved the cushiony feel and said they made hime jump high (he is six), Yesterday my mother and other great nephew arrived from PA, and much to my surprise they BOTH had Crocs. DGN is 11 and I did not think he would ever wear them (very tough boy) and he thinks they are the BEST thing......

I know folks say they have no support, but I have high arches and my feet don't ache after a day at Disney. I love the fact that DD can wear them without socks and her feet don't smell like with sneakers.

I am going to get myself a more subdued color navy probably in the near future in the Cayman style - the one without the holes all over the top for something different than I have now!

CMs are always asking us about them, as they see so many. One of the operaters on Mark Twain said she was going to get herself a pair.....

We love seeing what colors we see in the parks, and think it's great when we see WHOLE families with them!!! Little girl feet, boy feet, mommy and daddy feet all in CROCS!

Here are DDs happy feet with Piglet's feet.... they had fun comparing PINK Feet!
