I don't think even my closest friends know this about me. I have become obsessed with wearing Croc's the past year and wear them almost everyday now. I started out with a brown pair
I love them because they are so comfortable and light on your feet. I think they are cuter than most tennis shoes out there and I like that I can match them to my clothes. I was born pigeon toed and my feet turn in pretty noticeably and most shoes are so heavy on my feet. When I was younger I wore bars to sleep and my parent's bought me fitted mary jane's to wear but nothing helped. I often trip over my feet because I throw them in and am known to fall a lot. I even spent several years in special ed. P.E. to help my coordination skills. Anyways, these shoes work perfect for my feet because of the weight and since I have "Potato feet"( wide) as Marty calls them the shape works great.
I have taken these camping and used them as water socks in a river one time. They are so versatile and functional albiet they are kinda ugly. When they came out with a Mary Jane pair last year I flipped out and bought a black pair because they were so cute. I wore them to the mountains and encountered snow and they had great traction. Here is a pic of my cute Mary Jane's in the snow
Well, a few months back when we took our annual train trip to San Francisco I wore my cute Mary Janes. They worked great on the whole trip and my feet never hurt once. On the way home crossing the train tracks to get back to the car my foot got caught. I managed to untangle the foot and salvage the shoe but a piece broke off in the process. It was the little gator snap on the side and so I decided to call Croc and see if I could get a replacement part. I called them and they sent out a whole envelope of snaps for FREE and told me if I needed anything else to call back. I thought I had the strap assembly and when the snaps came I realized that I lost them. So I finally remembered to call last week and the straps came in the mail today( once again replaced free of charge) and I am in Croc heaven once again. I know this is inane prattle but I just wanted to share my good experience and highly recommend you all go buy a pair. Fashion is great but comfort is everything!
