    I love that they have an assorment of Disney Crocs - not that I would wear them, but I love the Disney pirates pair!

    Found this on the Croc website:

    For the Chef: The cook will get lots of kisses in these. Crocs are ergonomic, with an orthotic foot bed sure to stand hours in the kitchen. They mold to your feet, resist bacteria and odor, and won't slip when you race to save the flaming soufflé. Consider the Metro for it's superior fit, side ventilation and closed-top protection.

    So it looks like they are good for bad backs after all!

    I bought a pair of Cleo Crocs before our most recent trip to Disney. They are really comfy around home and when i'm out and about, but man...my feet were killing me at Disney after the first day. I don't recommend the Cleos for any of the ladies out there!!

    However, I have finally broken down and bought a pair of the beach Crocs, in pink, of course! And I have to say that so far, they are like walking on marshmallows!! I think they are insanely ugly shoes, but they are very comfy! I've gotten used to the ugliness...so used to it in fact that I am actually considering buying more! Eek!! I'm looking forward to trying them out the next time I go to Disney! (or Universal...hehehe)

    I wore the Athens last September in WDW and for our last trip in May I mostly wore the Patra. Both were very comfortable, and of course so is the beach, but the others are a bit more stylish.

    Although my DH hates Crocs, he did take the hint and buy me a lime green pair of Cayman's for Easter. They are fabulous! Although I have yet to wear them at WDW (we go again in Dec) they made it through 12 hours in Washington DC and I had absolutely NO leg/foot fatigue or pain. And I have flat feet! I figured if they can take 12 hours in 90 degree heat in our nation's capital surely they can conquor the World!!

    I've worn my Cleos to the parks before and did fine. I love how light they are and how my feet don't get hot in them.

    i am only worried about getting blisters if i buy them.. i mean how comfy are they. I use to think that they were ugly and why would i wear plastic shoes but they looking better and better

    some one help me what kind to get. i think two pair would be good that way i can brake them in befor my trip and switch each day..i was just told by my doc that i wasnt wearing the right shoes and should get better ones..

    so what ever i buy will be for my trip just want to make sure i get right kind.

    I thought they were ridiculously ugly but after reading about them on these boards, I tried them. I really loved them but I was still skeptical when I got to Disney. I wore them my first day because it was a half day and they were awesome. I decided to try my sneakers for my first Full day because I didn't want to be stuck in the event the crocs got uncomfortable.... well by noon on the first full day, I was dragging my mom back to the hotel to get my crocs! I didn't take them off the whole rest of the time I was there!

    I love my crocs too. I have beach and athens and I switch them up throughout the trip. They are the first shoes I have worn in Disney that didn't cause blisters and I was actually able to walk normally after a full day at the park. They have made my trip to Disney so much better. My whole family wears them now!

    On our recent trip I rotated between my Disney and Capri Crocs. One day I wore my Keds and that was the ONLY day I got blisters. I love my crocs!

    For those that think regular Crocs are ugly, try Crocs Capri sandals. (I thought reg crocs were ugly at first, but they have grown on my as well as my mom & sister)

    It took me awhile to hunt these down since crocs website has been sold out for a long time. But I think they are so cute. And almost as comfy as my disney crocs!
