I can honestly say there is not another pair of shoes that comes close to these for comfort, hygiene and wearability!! I brought these 2 years ago and have worn them constantly. I'm a health care professional so I am on the go for long periods of time. I usually have issues with blisters and comfort however I can do an intire 14 hour shift and still be ble to walk comfortably!! they are also washable, they always end up in the shower with me, which in turn makes them a lot more hygienic than most other shoes. I cannot praise them enough - in fact a lot of my colleugues now wear them. Thanks Crocs!!!
