I Wonder...




I got new Crocs today. Any day when I can say that is a good day. I have the worst feet in the world, probably because I grew up in earth shoes and wooden clogs, and Crocs are the only shoes that never hurt. The fact that they come in a rainbow of colors is an added benefit. If that's not good enough you can also get charms to personalize them. Yep, I have a "B" on each left shoe plus something that holds a special memory on each right one. Didn't know so much thought went into this sort of thing, did you?

Have you ever tried a pair? The insides have little ridges that give you a foot massage while you walk. And they're springy/spongy so each step is cushioned. Not to mention that they weigh absolutely nothing so it's like being barefoot without worrying about stepping on something sharp. Then there are the furry ones. Mm, toasty and comfy.

I already had beach (grape, chartruese), baya (sea blue), mammoth (pink), islander (cream/sky) and mary jane (lavendar, lime) Crocs. Today I added relief in practical black and white. Relief are made specifically for arthritic feet and yes, there really is a difference. The ultimate comfort just got maximized.

So here's what I'm wondering. I wear my Crocs every day so no one even reacts to the colors anymore. Do you think anyone would comment if I mixed and matched them? Or would they just assume I wasn't paying attention when I put my shoes on in the morning? Perhaps they'd think I finally lost what little was left of my mind? Would anyone even notice as long as I stuck to mixing colors and didn't swap styles too?

Yes, I know. I'm rambling terribly. Forgive me. It was one of those days and now that I'm home my mind doesn't feel like it. Who knows what I'd be babbling about if my new Crocs hadn't come today!

I have black (clog-type and recently got red ones (more of a sandal). The black ones double as my 'shower shoes', as I hate going barefoot in my basement!

Never seen 'em...they look plastic or rubber...do they make your feet sweat? They remind of shoes called 'jelly babies' which were late 1980's

Does it matter if they notice? They're comfy right? Give it a go one day and see what happens.

My kids have crocs. I haven't tried them yet as they don't look durable but you may have talked me into trying them at least.

With the way they're made there's plenty of ventilation so your feet stay comfy.

Everyone should try at least one pair. I think they're addictive.

How is the sizing? It sounds like you ordered them over the internet so how well to they fit?

They only have whole sizes. I wear a 6 1/2 usually but in Crocs 7's work just fine.
