Crocs Unisex-Adult Crocs Retro Clog Black/Light Gr&hellip Crocs
My normal size is 42 or 43 (8½ or 9) according to brand. I had purchased several pairs of Crocs over a number of years and they each normally survive about 2years of daily wear indoors or around the front yard.

This is a stick blender which comes in two parts, the motor unit which is quite heavy and substantial and the blending tool which bayonets into position; the two parts each have a 'key' which need to be aligned. It is straighforward and uncomplicated.
