When I was pregnant literally the only shoes I could wear were flip flops which was ok during the summer but when it started to get colder I needed some footwear that would fit on my swollen, water filled feet and ankles, or cankles as I called them!!
I decided to buy a pair of Crocs as I had seen them in all the shoe stores I looked in and I thought they would really fit the bill as they are quite wide fitting and are also slip on shoes so I didn't have to worry about them being too Tight around the back. As it was getting nearer winter and that I'm the type of person who does not like cold feet I decided to buy a pair of the winter variety Crocs as these have a gorgeously warm fleece innard and are not open like the regular Croc shoes.
According to an article I read the Croc was originally designed as a spa shoe by three friends back in 2002. The shoe is shaped like a clog and is quite large and round in the front, perfect for accommodating my large, fat feet. It is also slip on as well which is handy. Ok, so it's not the most good looking shoe but it's very versatile in terms of comfort and also the things you can do in it. What I love about these shoes because they are made of plastic they are wipe clean and look as good as new after you have done this even if you have been in mud.
According to the Crocs website this shoe is "The perfect cold weather shoe for any occasion. It's warm fleece lining and comfortable Croslite material footbed will make this Crocs a favourite. Features of this shoe include fully moulded Croslite material, three iconic ventilation holes and a removable and washable fleece lining. "
I purchased mine from the website in the end because I couldn't find the colour I liked in the shops. They recommended that because of the fleece lining the shoes may fit a little snug so you may want to go up a size from your regular size. I decided to stick with my shoe size of 6 and I'm glad I did because yes, they were a little snug but now I've had my baby my feet have gone down and these shoes fit really nicely.
The shoes come in a variety of different colours that you can choose from which I think is a really cool aspect of them. I go a pair of baby pink shoes with a white fleece lining as I wanted something a bit different than a normal shoe but they do come in other colours and of course black if you want to be a bit more discrete. These have to be THE and I say the in capitals, most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. The plastic base had a bit of bounce to it so you feel like you are literally being cushioned with every step. They give you a spring in your step, that's for sure. The rest of the shoe sort of moulds to your foot making it very comfortable inside too. The shoes do not rub or give you tired feet after you have been walking in them everyday, they are just amazing. The fleece lining keeps your feet nice and warm and comes as far as just over the back of your heel. You don't have to wear socks with these but in the cold cold weather I do as I prefer a bit more cold coverage up my legs. I haven't actually removed the lining or ever washed it so I can't comment on this aspect but I have heard its a bit tricky to remove but I don't really think you need to as they shouldn't get that dirty.
I paid £26.99 for mine and would recommend them to anybody for an amazingly comfortable, fun shoe.
The first time I saw the Croc Mammoths I thought the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. Having had them for three months, and wearing them several times a week, I still think they are probably the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. But.....as the saying goes.....looks aren't everything and beauty is only skin deep. Whether these shoes are ugly or not, I love them....let me say it again, I LOVE them. They are are, by far, the most comfortable and gorgeous shoes I have ever EVER worn.
The Mammoth Shoes cost me £26.99 from Amazon, which included postage and packaging. I didn't think this price was bad really because I know how long Crocs last. I've had my original Crocs for about five years and they still look like new despite wearing them for work five times a week!
These shoes are like the traditional Crocs, only they have a sheepskin fur lining and so they can be worn throughout the winter to keep my feet nice and warm. I have a purple pair with a white sheepskin lining, like the ones in the picture above. They do have a closed heel - which again is advantageous for winter - although there are still the holes in the top of the shoe which may be best to do without because clearly they are not completely waterproof because of that.
They are, as I've said, the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The fleece is soft, seamless and so silky and my feet just literally melt into the sheepskin and it feels like I'm wearing the world's most comfortable slippers. Because the shoes are wide and chunky, they are also so comfortable because they don't restrict the feet in any way - and so they are comfortable to wear for long periods. I was worried that the fur lining would make my feet too hot and sweaty, but in a similar way to Uggs, somehow this is prevented and my feet remain warm but not hot and sweaty.
I love these shoes!
About two years ago i spotted this crazy fashion trend called crocs, i though they were horrid and that people were mad wearing them. My sister was addicted to crocs and owned a few pairs and i asked her why she liked them so much and she told me i would find out why on my birthday! Yes she bought me a pink pair for my birthday and i quickly changed my opinion on them.
Since owning them through out summer and loving them i bought the crocs mammoth shoes for winter. They are like the classic crocs but have a fleese/fur lining and no strap for around the heels.
They have a higher heel and mine have only 3 breath holes per shoe, the fur lining is made from a synthetic material and can be removed for washing if needed on a low temperature in the washing machine
They are made of croslite material, which is a lightweight resin which is odour resistant and easy to clean. I find a damp soapy cloth brings them up like new.
I find them so versitile to wear, they slip on quickly and im out the door doing the school run and off to the shops. I find them very comfortable to wear and prefer to wear them rather than slippers.
The fur lining is comfortable and cosy in winter months and as my pair have a few breather holes my feet do not sweat with them on. I have owned my mammoths for over a year now and they are still in very good condition considering i live in them but i am hoping for a new pair from santa this year.
I paid £29.00 for mine from www.crocs.co.uk and another good website is www.footart.co.uk and it offers free postage.
I give the crocs mammoth 5 dooyoo stars
I caught onto the Crocs phase at the end of last summer when the whole world seemed to be wearing them. I was quite disappointed that the summer seemed to be over and my feet really feel the cold, so I couldn't really buy a pair. However some internet browsing made my day when I found these, Mammoth Crocs. They are the warmer winter version of Crocs. I paid £39.99 for mine, but have since seen you can get them for around £10 on amazon.
The Crocs are a plastic / rubber combination which is incredibly light weight. The real benefit of wearing them in the summer is that you can run in and out of the water as they do not soak up the water, but that is obviously not necessary in the winter. The big addition for these crocs is a faux fur lining which fits the whole inside and some of the outer edge of the shoe. The lining is incredibly soft and so lovely to put your feet into, it is like wearing slippers but you can wear them outside too.
These shoes are incredibly comfy and easy to walk in. They have grip on the bottom so you won't slip over. Comfort wise they deserve five stars, but in the aim of writing a fair review I have to also point out their downsides.
The shoes are backless, so even though they keep the front of your feet toasty and warm on those really cold days the back of you foot will not feel quite so warm when a draft gets up your trouser leg!
The other downside is that they are not fully waterproof and if you step in a puddle it would catch the lovely soft lining and damage it. It is washable, but this is a downside to shoes that you don't normally get in the winter.
I am one of those people who don't really like the look of Crocs, they aren't exactly flattering or dainty to women, but they do have a funky edge to them and are very much in trend at the moment (depending on your opinion). They come in a very wide range of colours, so there is something to suit everyones taste. I opted for safe black!
When the Crocs phenomenon hit the UK a few years ago I, like many other people laughed at their atrociousness and vowed to never be seen dead in a pair. I saw people wearing them out and about and thought they were the ugliest looking footwear ever and completely dismissed them as an overpriced fashion gimmick which would inevitably fizzle out once people came to their senses and realised just how unattractive they actually were.
My wife jumped on the Crocs bandwagon at the earliest possible opportunity like a lot of other people and loved her Crocs Caymans with such a passion that it was virtually impossible to get her to wear anything else (on her feet that is!) and despite numerous statements questioning her fashion sense she extolled their virtues to me and anyone else who questioned the monstrosities that were so clearly obvious to see. After a constant barrage of brainwashing and having been accused of knocking something without even attempting to try them out I found myself being coerced into a Crocs shop one day last October and faced with the sight of row upon row of rubber shoes each as ugly as the next.
My first tentative step into the world of Crocs saw me try on a pair of Caymans and I begrudgingly conceded that yes, they were comfortable, yes they were supportive and yes it was walking on air. However they were hideous to look at and I didn't like the holes at the sides of the shoes and as it was coming to the colder months I explained that I wouldn't get much wear out of them (in other words I made up excuses on the spot) Then my wife spotted the subject of this review, the Crocs Mammoth.
If I thought the Caymans were bad then the Mammoths took it to a new level, not just a rubber pair of shoes with holes in them these had a synthetic fur lining in them as well. *Nice* (not). Still, I tried a pair on and every negative thought I had about them vanished in an instant as my feet were enveloped by the warm, soft lining and my feet were in sensory heaven. £25.00 later a pair of Crocs Mammoths left the shop with me and now a year later they are still going strong and are going to see me through the next few months once the weather turns cold.
My pair of Mammoths are black in colour with a black fur lining, they have a crocs button on the side and there are hexagonal holes on the top of the shoe itself. The side holes which are a feature of the caymans are filled in on the Mammoths so they are a closed in shoe on the sides and the lining fixes into position overlapping the heel. The are, of course, still hideous to look at and feel very large and bulky when they are worn but are feather light in weight and extraordinarily comfortable to wear. it is like walking around in a pair of slippers with these Mammoths as they keep your feet and toes toasty warm but have the added benefit of being lightweight and incredibly durable and non-slip. I wore mine throughout the winter period last year and whilst they weren't suitable for the snow I found them to be a god-send when the temperatures plummeted.
The fur lining is soft to the touch but not so thick that they make my feet overly hot or sweaty, I presume the holes at the top of the shoe act as some kind of temperature control so that your feet have chance to breath but are not affected by being completely encased in a furry sock. The lining is machine washable and is easy to replace back into position into the shoe itself and although there is no denying that I do feel self concious when I wear them the benefits of having warm feet and a comfortable shoe to walk in means that I soon forget I am wearing them. They are ideal for walking the dog on an evening when the cold, dark nights have set in and whilst I wouldn't wear them to go on a night out they are an ideal shoe for casual wear when you just want to throw something on.
I wear a size 10 shoe and bought my pair of Mammoths in my usual size, this I found to be a bit of a mistake as until the shoe is panned in they do feel a little on the tight side when they are brand new. The lining needs time to relax a little so do bear in mind that you may need to go up a half-size, mine are fine now and fit my feet perfectly but it did take a good few wears to fully benefit from the comfort they offer. Similarly the lining itself can easily be dragged out of the shoe when you attempt to take them off so there are times when you will need to position it back in place, this isn't too much of a hassle but is a bit of a pain when all you want to do is slip your shoes on and off. All things considered though the benefits of wearing these shoes far outweigh any minor niggles I have and I can definitely understand why so many people swear by their Crocs.
As with all Crocs shoes they are easy to maintain only requiring a wipe over with a damp cloth if they get dirty and my black ones look as 'good' this year as they did last even though they have been well worn.
Visually I still think they are ugly and as little as 5 or 10 years ago I would never have considered wearing them preferring style over comfort however as I have got older I can appreciate that there comes a time when all you want is to feel comfortable when you are out walking the dog or are just out and about in town. These shoes may not be the best looking in my collection of dress shoes, boots and trainers but they are, by far, the most comfortable I own and its on that basis that I do recommend them.
As with all Crocs these Mammoths come in a range of colours and are available in child through to adult sizes. For men they seem to have a limited choice of colours available, mainly black, navy blue and a combat green colour but ladies will have far more choices available as illustrated in the supplied dooyoo picture. I paid £25.00 in store for my Mammoths and that seems to be the price that they are available for now although it will depend on where you shop, out of season these are usually on sale and can be picked up for half price and it is worth buying them then to put away for this time of the year.
If you can get over how they look then they are an affordable pair of footwear whose comfort needs to be experienced to fully appreciate. I'm a huge fan of my Mammoths and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone - try them once and you wont want to take them off.
Five stars from me, thanks for reading my review.
When Crocs first came out I was one of the people that thought they were ugly plastic shoes and swore I would never own a pair. As an avid Sheepskin boot wearer in the winter months I wished I had an extra pair that I could use as slippers. Unfortunately there was no way I could justify the expense and big boots around the house probably wouldn't be that comfy anyway.
One day whilst buying crocs for my children I saw the Mammoth Style - plastic outer with a lovely warm lining and had to try them on to see if they'd give me the warmth of my UGGS. I have to say I was amazed - really comfy, light on feet and so warm. So I purchased and they are regularly seen on my feet both in winter and summer - in fact I'm thinking of getting another pair in a different colour. And for someone who swore they'd never be seen dead in them I actually said to my husband that I wish they weren't meant as slippers as I'd wear them out otherwise!
The lining can be hand washed and replacements can be purchased if needed. I found them on sale for £10 which is a bargain but they are worth more. You won't be disappointed!
When Crocs were first introduced to the market I took one look at them and vowed that I would never be seen dead wearing the ugly old things but things have moved on since then. My friend bought a pair, she thought they were the latest thing since sliced bread, she customised her Crocs with some novelty Croc buttons. I soon started to look at the lightweight shoes in a different light and before I knew it I was the proud owner of a pair of crocs.
But I bought my pair of Crocs towards the end of the better weather and I am now limited to wearing them indoors because my feet get chilly.
But at Art class a few weeks ago a fellow dauber had an awesome looking pair of Crocs on her feet, I thought that she had just stuck some boot socks inside of her normal Crocs to keep her feet warm - until I carried out a full examination during coffee break !
Joan filled me in with the details, the Crocs were called Mammoth Crocs, the same odour resistant, lightweight Croc constructed from Croslite but they come with a removable fleece liner.
I know Crocs are not the most elegant of footwear but Joan was wearing her jeans and sweatshirt and they looked the ideal footwear to match her outfit.
The Croc clogs have no strap at the heel, I like this because it means that the clog is easy to pull on. But you do have to get used to having no strap, it is essential to take care when you are walking downstairs.
The Crocs Mammoth have a slightly higher heel than the normal unlined version and because you are buying them with a foot warming fleece that fits inside you may need to move a size up from your normal foot size. I take a size 5 and I ended up with a size 6.
The Croc mammoth clogs are available in a few colours, navy/oatmeal, khaki/oatmeal, cotton candy/oatmeal, grape /oatmeal, chocolate/oatmeal, chocolate/chocolate and black.
I have a black pair, call me boring but black is not a colour that stands out in a crowd and it will mix with most other colours.
The Croc clogs are superbly warm and comfortable and the only drawback is that once you slip your feet into them you are reluctant to wear anything else.
The fleecy liners are washable but when you try to remove the liners for the very first time it can seem a little bit daunting. As you start to remove the liner it actually feels that it is going to split but the whole art is to `unhook` the liner from the side rivet/button and then you can remove the liner with ease. When you put the liner back into the Croc clog you need to remember to tuck the liner over the back of the heel to secure it into place.
I just hand washed my Croc liners and dried them on top of the radiator, they washed well.
The holes at the sides of the Croc clogs have been filled in, this allows you to wear the clogs in wet weather without fear of getting soaking wet feet. But if you love the pretty charms and buttons that you can attach to your Crocs then you can still fit them into the ventilation holes on the top of the clog.
Because the Crocs let your feet breathe I find that my feet stay comfy, any foot odour can soon be sorted out by washing that fleecy liner.
The Croc clogs are light and very pliable and your feet can bend freely which is a lovely feeling.
I chose the black clog with the black fleecy liner and they cost me £24.50 from E bay. Maybe that seems a lot to pay for what is in actual fact a pair of plastic clogs but they are very comfortable and convenient.
I agree they are not fashionable or shoes that you would wear for an evening out but for everyday wear the Croc Mammoth clogs are the bees knees.
I was so excited when I ordered these shoes. The mammoth croc is like the Caymen but with a wooly, removable lining. This makes it ideal just to pop in the washer if they get a bit sweaty or damp. Unlike the Caymen the around of the shoe is filled so no holes for the puddle water to get in, however there are holes on top, so if its raining the water does get in - they're not really a wet day shoes.
Sizing: As the shoe sizing with Crocs is bit of a dilema with them being US sizes I went for the size of my previous Caymen's but I think I should have gone a size bigger to allow for the wooly lining, but as they didn't have the that size from where I ordered them I kept them and I think I've managed to stretch them a bit, or maybe I've just got used to them.
A tip for mammoths in summer: Whilst trawling throught the interent I came across Crocs Turbo strap which if you remove the lining from the Croc you can fasten the strap on to the Croc rivets at the side and volia another pair of Crocs - so they don't have to be redundant during the summer.
The Crocs Mammoth are strapless slip-onS, this makes them very easy slip on to use as a slipper in the home as well as on outdoor shoe. Although when going outside they don't give thebest protection against those winter days and I have had a few wet feet moments, but they are ok if your just popping out for a couple of minutes.
What's great about these shoes is that the lining is removable and can be washed, so no more smelly feet for me then. I'm still to come across another winter shoe that is so easy to clean, pop in the washing machine and its done.
The soles are slightly higher the the regular cayman shoes so that they offer a bit more protection from the wet weather, but to be honest I dont think this makes much of a difference especially if your splashing through puddles, which where i live, is inevitable. The shoes are really comfy and have other shoe in the croc range which are equally as comfy.
The cost is relatively good for a winter shoe but over priced for a slipper. I would say buy them if where you live gets dry cold winters but not for the wetter winters as they just don't do the job.
Not being a big slipper wearer and wanting a pair of comfortable shoes to wear indoors and out in the garden, I came across the Mammoth Crocs.
Mammoth Crocs are basically Cayman Crocs but with a fleecy lining, making them very comfortable! Sure, they're not the best of looking shoes, but then I don't intend on wearing them to work or down the high street, so who cares?!
Crocs are made out of what Crocs call croslite(tm) material, which is basically a durable resin material. It makes the Crocs comfortable, odor resistant, lightwieght and easy to clean. According to Crocs, they're also recyclable, so they're even good for the environment!
The fleece lining in the Mammoth Crocs makes them extra comfortable. I've got awkward feet which makes it difficult to find shoes that fit, are comfortable and which don't slip off. These fit me perfectly. The fleece lining is removable and so it can be washed if needed. Beware, the Mammoth Crocs without the lining will be a size or two bigger than with the lining.
One thing I will say though, is make sure you try on a pair before buying a pair of Mammoth Crocs. Due to the fleece lining, it makes the Mammoth Crocs smaller than the regular sizes. I normally take a size 7 in womens shoes, but the size of the Mammoth Crocs that fit me are a Mens 8 / Womens 10!
I chose the black Mammoth Crocs (both the lining and the shoe itself are black), but they come in many different colours including: Army (Green) shoe/Oatmeal (a greyish white) liner, Berry (deep pink)/Oatmeal, Chocolate (brown - both shoe & liner), Cotton Candy (baby pink)/Oatmeal, Grape (Bluey/purple)/Oatmeal (as shown), Red/Oatmeal, and other colours too. So there's plenty of colours to choose from.
I tried a pair of Mammoth Crocs on at a local shop, but didn't like the £30+ price tag. However, I bought my pair from Amazon for £23.30, but with an Amazon voucher earned from Dooyoo it meant I only had to pay £13.30!
So all in all, Mammoth Crocs keep your feet comfortable and toasty warm, no matter how they look!
This strapless slip-on is a cozy twist on Crocs' original designs keeping feet warm! With super soft synthetic fur lining which is removable and washable. You don't need to worry about your feet getting wet, as the holes on sides are false, a nod to crocs' original designs
