A few years ago my friend returned from America with some Crocs and I was really intrigued about them as she was the first person I had seen wearing them. I asked her could I try them on and when I did I was sold immediately as they were so comfortable and it felt a little bit like I was walking on air! I made the decision to look online and order some from the US as the exchange rate was good at the time.
The shoes that I decided to purchase were the Cayman variety which was the same ones that my friend had. The Cayman variety, like all other Crocs, is a rubbery shoe which is very flexible. They have a closed off toe but they have holes around the front and the top of the main part of the shoe to allow air to circulate around your feet. They have a movable strap which you can wear at the back of your heel to hold the shoe on or you can move it to the middle of the shoe where it blends in with the rest of the shoe making it easy to slip the shoe on and off.
The Crocs are full of little bumps inside where you put the sole of your feet. I think this is meant to enhance your comfort and perhaps work on the pressure points on your feet. I do find that the little bumps seem to relax my feet and make them comfortable in my Crocs.
The Crocs are made from a flexible rubber material which is incredibly lightweight-in fact a great thing about Crocs is that you barely feel like you have anything on your feet as they just don't weigh you down at all. As they are made from a rubbery material they are very easily cleaned if they get dirty and I simply wash mine under a trip with hot water and then allow them to dry off. It really is that simple and it is so convenient as you can have them looking like new in no time at all!
Crocs are probably more suited to summery, dry weather as in the rain you will find that you soon get soggy feet as the rain will leak through the air holes in the Crocs which doesn't feel nice at all. Crocs are a great shoe to wear if you are paddling in the sea on a beach holiday though, and want some protection for your feet but don't want to ruin your shoes as they will soon dry.
Now Crocs, in my opinion, are an ugly shoe! There is no getting away from the fact that they are basically a rubbery holy shoe! They ARE very comfortable though and so it was this factor which made me overlook the appearance. I used to wear my Crocs for work each day when I worked in a school as I was constantly on my feet and they were really comfortable. They also have a brilliant grip on them which was wonderful for slippery situations. I haven't worn my Crocs in a long time now as I am much more partial to heeled boots these days but I still have them in my wardrobe should I ever need to wear them again.
From memory I think it cost me around £25.00 to get the Crocs from America which I feel was good value to be honest as they have lasted well. You can buy imitation Crocs very cheaply from all kinds of stores but I doubt that they would have the same longevity so it depends what you are personally looking for to be honest!
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: I prefer other shoes these days
