    I have a pair of Niles that I wore thru last summer and about 3 weeks at WDW. I just bought a pair of the Athens flip flops while vacationing in Maui (I saw Crocs on tons of people over there) and was shocked at how much more confortable they were than my Niles. I remembered thinking how confortable my Niles were when I first bought them too. Made me start to think if others have found a point where they are just plain ol' sorta comfortable shoes and if I should spring for another pair of Niles.

    DH and I were just in Maui at the end of April. We found Crocs there for $22 - a lot cheaper than they are here. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. I'm thinking of getting some more and taking them to DW in July.

    I think at some point the plastic "gives" and sinks in. Therefore After awhile they dont feel so cushy. I'v only had mine for 2months but wear them every day and at work too! I dont think there as cushy as when i first got them!

    I agree. I have two pairs of Aspens, two pairs of Niles, one pair of Beach, and two pair of the Athens flip flops. When I first got them I would have said the Aspens were the most comfortable, however I wear them almost every day to work and they do not feel near as cushy as they did and they have started making a clicking noise. My Beach and Niles I seldom wear and they are as comfortable as they ever were. I guess like most shoes Crocs wear out. I know the treds on the bottoms of my Aspens are much thinner than on the other pairs. They look almost slick (and they're less than a year old).

    I have four pairs of Niles. My Metros (no holes on top) are more than a year old and still very comfy. The people at Taylor Shoes told me the Metro has more support than the Beach. I have one pair of Niles that are almost as old but are getting a little worn on the bottom. I have slipped in them a couple of time, so I don't wear them often at all.

    I got mine at Walmart and love them, they are still as comfortable as the day I bought them and I wear mine everyday! :love: Now my husband tried mine on yesterday, I didn't think he'd like them but he did. He said, "WOW THESE ARE REALLY COMFORTABLE" except his toes were on the ends. So now I have to try to find him a pair. :goodvibes Each of the kids have a pair too! As much as I love them I can't see paying a higher price. We got ours for $8.88 :cool1: I will get us each another pair at the end of summer to put back for Disney just in case we wear our out before December :wizard:
