Cleo Crocs

Ok so i ordered some Capri style and they are on back order sooooo I was wondering if anyone had any problems with blisters with the Cleo style? They are a few bucks cheaper so i;m thinking of picking them up as well but i'm leery of the strap across giving me blisters! Thanks all!

I got the Cleo Crocs about a month ago, and they are great so far. I did need to stretch the straps just a bit- I have really high arches- and since doing that, they are super comfy! Haven't worn them at WDW yet, but did wear them for a day walking around the mall, and they did great. No issues with rubbing or blisters. Looking forward to trying them out at WDW this fall. I will give them a test run at our local theme park this summer.

Thanks...I think I may get them! I have a bad back and I know they will help me with walking around all day out and about. How is the back strap? Its adjustable right? I think i'd wear it on my heel to keep the shoe secured, am i wrong in thinking this will make them comphy?

Cleo's don't have a backstrap. There is a strap that goes around the toes, then a second one that goes around the instep. They do stay on very well, though- better than flip flops, IMO.

OOOOHH I thought the back strap was like the reg crocs and was adjustable to be either front or back... i dont usually do well with shoes that have only slip ons...i may have to change my mind now! Thanks!

just got back from a week at WDW with my croc cleos and LOVE THEM!! I, too, am not a flip-flop lover, but the shoes NEVER felt like they were gong to fall off. Closest thing to walking in bare feet and my bad back didn't bother me at all.

I need to get some but they are out of my size in the only three colors I like on the website. Ugh I only have a month till my trip lol. I'm glad everyone thinks they are good though since they are my favorites according to looks only.

I also have the Cleos and I just L O V E them! Feels like there's nothing on your feet! I don't think they feel anything like flip-flops. They stay on very well. Going back to get another pair!

Are these shoes good for people with back problems? I've seen them at the mall and always hurry by- for the most part, I think they are hideous. HOWEVER, there are a couple cute ones on the site posted
