    I am reading that some of you wear socks with crocs (while at Disney) and some don't. For those of you that do, what kind of socks do you wear with them? I have the Caymen style crocs but should I get a different one to wear with socks?

    I just wear short white atheletic socks. I think it looks better to wear them without socks, but my crocs rub my foot and the socks make them more comfy. I have to admit, I got my first pair of crocs (mickey mouse) for Christmas and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they were to wear in the parks.

    I usually wear "no show" women's socks in fun colors and patterns. "No show" socks are the "low cut" ones - they often have them in Coolmax fabric.

    Some have a flower pattern, some are striped - I think they're kind of cute! I find that Crocs are more comfortable with socks - my feet sweat less.

    Socks with Crocs - no! Just no!

    In fact, Crocs - no!

    :scared1:

    I bought some Crocs and found them horribly ugly. The rubbed, slipped and looked even worse with socks.

    Instead, I got some Timberland sandals and they are great - soooo confortable!

    Crocs are the work of the devil! :mad:

    Sorry winkster but I love my Crocs, ugly or not! :lovestruc They are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. However, I have never tried them with socks but thought it might be a good idea in Disney...

    I know most people cring at the thought of someone wearing socks with crocs. But I do, because the crocs rub the bottoms of my feet. I wear the no show socks which are cut lower than ankle socks. I have found the converse makes no shoe socks in many colors. I have no show socks in the colors of my crocs. DO NOT WEAR WHITE SOCKS WITH DARK CROCS.

    I wear mine with the no show socks as well and always in a similar color (or something fun and patterned!) It helps keep my feet dry and blister free! If I wear them without socks after awhile my shoes start to "squeak" from the moisture making my foot slip in the croc material. Hope this helps!

    Don't apologise Disneylvr - as long as your comfortable! My opinion counts for nothing!

    To be honest, I never think Crocs look ugly on other people - I just thought they looked ugly when I had them on. I hardly ever notice what shoes other people are wearing.

    Crocs are ugly. I own 3 pairs of ugly crocs! I love them! However, not for Disney. My feet get too tired. I wear my birks! In fact on our trip in 03 I went and bought birks and wore them the next day to Disney. Not problem, not a blister! I *adore* my birks!

    Whatever you choose I hope you have happy tootsies!

    I proudly wear socks with my crocs, even at work. Sometimes even plain white socks with my black crocs . . .:banana:

    At WDW though, I tend to go sockless, and we use this stuff called Body Glide. I rub it all over my feet and I'm in slip sliding heaven all day. :cloud9:

    It really does make a huge difference. My daughter also used it where her upper arms/body and thighs were rubbing together. It's a lifesaver!

    I tend to agree with winkster....curiously, if these shoes that are so "comfortable" they require non-asthetically pleasant socks to be worn with them so they don't rub your feet, aren't they in fact, not comfortable? I don't get it, wouldn't a comfy pair of walking shoes be better?

    I wear socks with mine sometimes. It's not about comfort but I wear mine in the winter too so the socks just keep my feet warm!

    I know what you are saying - if the Crocs are so comfy then why do you have to wear socks? I don't know how to explain it, but after a few hours at WDW in regular walking shoes my feet just kill me. I have worn Crocs without socks and can just keep going and going. They do tend to rub in some spots - but it isn't that bad - and my feet feel so much more comfortable than regular shoes that even with the rubbing the Crocs are so much better. However, one year I decided to try wearing socks and it made a great shoe even greater - now I get the comfort and no rubbing.

    I have the beach crocs and usually go barefoot at WDW with no problems. In October though it rained and I only had crocs (oops) so I wore black socks (red crocs) but the ones that hardly come up past your heel so you couldn't really see them. I had to - my feet were cold!

    I tried them without socks and they do make your feet hot and rub in spots so since I have worn socks my feet feel fantastic. Sorry if they are ugly to look at but I can still walk after a 12 day vacation so it is well worth it. :cheer2:
