Review and tips.
on 2 May 2016
There were a few rubber casting marks and strips that had been over molded in the molds. This isn't obvious though and doesn't detract from them. You would never notice it when they were on someone's feet. They weren't packaged at all, they just had a hanger on the top. No box or protective bag but still these shoes would survive the end of the world and of course they got here perfectly intact.
They are so incredibly comfy. They are so padded on the sole that you feel as if you are wearing decent walking boots instead of rubber shoes. They are so comfy that I can't wear normal slippers anymore as they have no cushioning in them compared to these. That says it all. They grip very well on wet floors, gravel, grass, and even some types of carpet. It's odd because some of the carpets in the house are fine but others are not. Just beware of that when wearing them for the first time till you try them out in your house.
They are great for going swimming in or to the beach I'm told as they float and they are easy to rinse off before you get in or out of the pool room, or if you get them sandy.
As much as I dislike the appearance of these shoes, they really have grown on me to the point where I found some slightly nice looking summer style flip flops so they don't look as much like 'crocs' but they retain the comfort and durability.
After much initial hatred for the look of crocs, I decided to get a pair for comfort and practicality. Having a foot problem and waiting for an operation, these were the best option to enable me to stay comfortable.
Once I got them I realised how comfortable they are and I was immediately won over to the odd things. Nothing beats comfort for me around the house, even if I'm in 10 inch heels to go out in! With a nasty foot problem as well they were a welcome relief from tight shoes.
They are so comfy that I wouldn't wear any other slippers about the house now. I have moved on to the flip-flops as they look nicer but are still just as comfy and durable.
1. For dirty crocs, a quick low heat spin in the washing machine will get off 99% of dirt and stains. For grass stains, I use washing up liquid and a scrubbing brush.

2. If your crocs are too big or too small, stick them in the tumble dryer on a high heat for a few minutes and then put them on straight away. If they are too big they will shrink a little, if they are too small, put a couple of pairs of thick socks on and wear them as soon as they come out of the dyer, they will stretch and get a little breathing room in them. Take it from me, wearing the wrong size ones creates some nasty friction patches and can lead to blisters.
3. To prevent blisters or sore areas, apply Vaseline on the areas that they rub on and it will help prevent any further soreness, just watch out if you are walking in mud or grit because it will stick to your feet!
4.You can remove the back strap by pulling out the pins that keep them in. You can re-attach them later if you need to.
