Crocs are a big fad and I live in a warm area so I thought I
would like them. People say they wear them as their primary
shoes, even to work, formal occasions, etc. They claim they
are the most comfortable shoes they have ever worn. They are
pretty comfortable as long as you are not running or hiking,
but when I do intensive activity I find they are too loose
to be practical and that the bumps in the sole can cause
blisters, especially if worn without socks. All that being
said, they are very comfortable for relaxed activities like
hanging around the house or walking around the block. They
are most comfortable when worn with athletic socks in my
opinion. They are extremely light and more shoe-like than a
slipper or flip-flop, so they are good for going on errands,
etc. If you work in a casual office you might be able to
wear them there too. I especially like them for traveling.
They are fantastic for long driving or plane trips because
they are so soft and light and you can slip them on and off
while driving. You can get by wearing them to a restaurant,
museum or the beach or most tourist activities. This can
free you from having to bring along lots of shoes. Bottom
line, if you don't expect them to replace all your other
shoes you will find they are very good for many situations.

I love the color, style and antimicrobial feature in these
shoes. They are a bit cumbersome, "grippy," and wide, but
once you get the hang of that you will fall in love. Much
like Birks, you have to get used to them. They have more
cushion than you might think and very practical for wet
applications like gardening, boating, and frolicking in the
rain. Buy a size down if you are in between and deal with
the width; It is worth it!

These are the most comfortable shoes that I own! Having a
larger foot (13) I could not find my size locally and had to
order online. I had heard that these shoes felt good; I had
also heard that before about other shoes (Birkenstocks,
Eccos). I'm flat footed and my feet almost always hurt at
the end of the day but not when I'm wearing my Crocs.
Shoebuy had the shoe I wanted at the right price and size.
