    How interesting! I'm not a big croc fan, but those are kinda cute. Hmm.

    I am not a fan of them either, but my two year old loves them! (and they are easy to get on her). I have the ones you linked, and I love them...the most comfortable shoes ever! Love, love, love them!

    Those look kinda cute! I'd have to try them on and see how they looked on my feet though! Interesting.

    Sorry, still ugly.

    Those little beads under my feet have always hurt. I remember the soccer slip-on sandals that were the craze in middle school with those-ouch!!

    I have such huge boat feet that most of these do not work for me :(

    I want to try on the high heel ones, and another pair of slip on ones. Sometimes different types fit differently. I had to give my dh the ones I bought because they kept hitting my toes.

    I really don't like crocs, but the original set posted about are actually really cute. I did have some of those soccer sandals with the beads on the bottom - freshman year of college maybe? Everyone wore them with socks :confused: but they still hurt my feet.

    I also think the crocs in the original post are cute but I also wouldn't wear them because of those darn bumps. They hurt my feet! Makes me feel a little like the princess and the pea.

    If those stupid bumps hurt everyone's feet, why do they put them on the shoes???

    You silly Rabbit!! I have the exact crocs (well; mine are cheapies & totally green/not Packers from Target) and yep, they are ugly! I keep mine by the front door to step out into the yard. You really made me laugh because of the way you started out your reply! :lol:

    They don't hurt my feet at all; in fact, they make my feet feel great. I only wear them around the house or for a quick run in my truck if I'm not getting out anywhere.

    "They" say crocs are terrible for your feet, especially children's. I remember when we were kids we wore the leather lace-ups until we were almost 3. I've had lots of kids w/running accidents at school too. I had a pair and they made my feet sweat too badly. The ones you're looking at are fashionable but for me they'd be dangerous, or I'd be dangerous wearing them. I'd have to see how stable they were before I'd buy them.

    Be sure to step off elevators and not drag your feet. You might end up with some broken toes. ;) I have not joined the Crocs bandwagon. Not until I need river shoes, anyway.

    15 years of teaching fitness have ruined my feet (Morton's Neuroma, heel spurs)- Crocs are one of the few shoes I can wear comfortably. Fashion doesn't mean a thing to me- I need my feet to feel good.:p
    I even wear the Jibbetz on them-which my kids love seeing.

    Finally bought a pair of flip flop Crocs from Zappos so that I could return them if I didn't like the bumps....but I love them! They aren't at all like the big bumps on those older style shoes. And the heel bed is so soft. I'm sold on Crocs...surprisingly.

    I'm sorry, but 50 bucks is too much for me to play for rubber shoes. However, they do look good! I do wear the regular crocks around the house. Crocs with a pair of socks are the only thing that keeps my feet warm when I'm at home during the winter. We have linoleum over concrete floors, and they will freeze your feet! I don't like the look of crocs but they are so comfy!!!

    We have a crocs store downtown now.

    I got off on the wrong subway stop- looked up and thought "hmm. we have a crocs store."

    It SMELLED LIKE PLASTIC!

    Apparently it opened last week. They had all kinds of crocs I'd never seen before- but I just got a replacement pair for my black Mary Janes.

    A K teacher turned me on to the more "fashionable" Crocs. I've tried on the heals, and they felt sturdy. I don't own them, though. I do own their flip flops, which look like any other flop (not the cloggy original Croc design). I love my flops. I wore them all summer, but they are waaaaaay too casual for work. Maybe I'll buy some of the "pretty" sandals.

    Those other styles are better than those God-awful "holey" clogs, but they're still PLASTIC SHOES.

    Love my "unholey" clogs for gardening, though!

    Since we're talking about shoes, (a subject I LOVE,) do any of you like clogs? What kind? I am looking at a pair for Fall.
