    Hi

    Has anyone ever worn Crocs when walking the parks?? I hate the thought of those big clunky sneakers for the duration, but sometimes have trouble with my heel. :confused3

    They are all I have worn for my past 3 trips. I don't even pack any other shoes anymore..

    I'm going to be buying a pair of Crocs for this trip coming up. My wife already has hers, but she wants the Mickey Crocs, so we'll be buying her another set too! She said they were extremely comfortable last time. I wore sandals and sneakers last time and on the days I wore the sneakers, my feet were in agony.

    Wouldn't wear anything else, and I think they look quite nice. Plenty of folk wear them.

    My daughter started day one at Disney with a brand new pair...no blisters...and no "breaking in" period.

    My son and I will be sporting them this year!!!

    I don't care for the look of regular crocs, but wanted something comfortable, so I bought Croc Cleos thinking they could be my extra shoes for when I got tired of tennis shoes. I wore the Cleos almost the entire time! My tennis shoes became my extra shoes, and I only used them at night when it was cold! They are the first thing going in my bag for our next trip :thumbsup2

    But, even if you want regualr crocs you won't look silly. BF wore his some, but the strap attachment rubbed him. There are so many people wearing them that no one would look twice!

    I wore my crocs everyday without socks and my feet felt great. Another extra bonus is that when it rains your feet and shoes dry off quicker. Just be sure to break them in before you go.

    I think it would be easier to ask who doesn't wear Crocs at Disney. Mostly the only people who don't wear Crocs are the folks who really hate the way they look :scared1:. Personally, I gave up looks for comfort years ago when I developed plantar fasciitis. For 20 years I wore Birkenstocks, but I really like Crocs better as they have a cushier sole. I wore my crocs non-stop, even after I had to quit walking and go to an ECV after several days (I now have a connective tissue disease, and simply couldn't walk for the whole vacation). :moped:

    DD wore her crocs the whole time, and I wore my mary jane crocs 5 out of 7 days! the other shoes I wore were clarks walking sandals, which are as comfortable, but more stylish.

    i wore them last year, and so did my kids (4 y/o). i had my kids in them every day, and i switched back and forth between my sneakers and the crocs every other day. my feet definitely felt better when i wore the crocs -- so much better. btw -- we throw ours in the dishwahser at night if they are dirty -- just not put them through the drying cycle!

    Another Croc user here. I started wearing them before they were popular, back when they were just ugly! ;) Alternated between my pink Mickey ones, and purple beach Crocs President's week. Definitely better for me than my New Balance walking sneakers.

    Love, Love, Love my crocs!!! I wear the Disney crocs and never have a blister or hot spot like I used to. I would be limping by the 3rd day of my vacation but since I wear Crocs I am skipping thru the parks on day 12!!!!!Don't care what I look like, I even wear them with socks!!! Just enjoying Disney without any pain!!!!:cheer2:

    QUESTION:

    Do the black Mickey Crocs get hot in the Florida sun? (I'm thinking June...)

    Thanks!
