To be honest, I wasn’t surprised to hear that Crocs has sold more than 300 million pairs of footwear during the past decade because. No wonder, these fun shoes are easy to slip on and off and are extremely comfortable. However, there are many different models of Crocs on the market, and the one that I describe in the article is the most popular of all time!  In this Crocs classic review, you will find out why people love them so much after putting them on!

Classic Crocs

 

Comfort

Crocs are very comfortable and flexible. These shoes are made of Crostile material. The great thing about this material is that it is compressing as well as soft and lightweight. This material absorbs shocks incredibly well and is super waterproof. I honestly didn’t find any downside about the comfort. With the Crocs, you can walk comfortably without feeling any pain while walking or standing for long hours.


Versatility

These Crocs are easy to slip on and off and are also 100% waterproof. Therefore, you can use them to go sailing, go to the beach, the swimming pool, to stroll around the town or even to do gardening. The only thing I wouldn’t suggest you do is to wear them on wet floors because they become quite slippery once the outsoles are worn out. Other than that, the material is lightweight and durable, making them fantastic shoes for everyday use!


Style

Many people find the Crocs quite ugly. Yep! But the funny thing about this is that when they read reviews on Amazon, they jump on the opportunity to buy them!

And once they wear them, they forget the fact that they are ugly. Why? Because these are not only extremely comfortable and easy to wear but also super versatile!

I personally think they are fashionable and cute. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from, and the fact that I can wear them with any jeans and shorts is a big plus! If you feel good in sporty outfits, then you will definitely love Crocs’s look!


Durability

The Crocs are amazingly durable. You can expect them to last a long time. What I mean by this is that they will serve you for years to come! Believe me, these are unbreakable! I am not exaggerating, even if a truck drives over these shoes, they will remain intact. Oh yes, of course, they will get dirty, but that’s all! The only thing I’ve noticed is that the outsole wears out quite rapidly if you wear them often on though surfaces, but that can happen with any shoes.


Straps

What I really like about The classic Crocs is that it features heel straps that you can fix on the top of the shoes so you can slip them on and off easily. Or if you prefer, you can either leave the straps behind your heel to hold your feet in place while walking. If you don’t plan to use these straps, you have the option to take them off. It is a bit difficult to remove the straps at first, but once you play with them a few times, the hole stretches out, and it becomes much easier to detach them!

Where to Wear Crocs?

Since the classic Crocs are made of stiff material and are also 100% waterproof, you are free to wear them where ever you feel comfortable. Meaning, you can wear them on the beach, in the street, around the house, swimming pools and even in the yard. The only downside of walking with Crocs is that debris gets inside the sole easily since they are open on the sides and have holes on the upper. The good news is that they are easy to clean, you just need to shake them a bit, and you are good to go!

When to Wear Crocs?

It may be hard to believe, but you can wear the Crocs throughout the year! Of course, in the winter it’s better to wear them around the house because obviously, it is way too cold outside unless you wear them with socks!. In the summer, you are free to wear them where ever you want. Whether on boats, on beaches or in swimming pools, they tick all the box!


Things Not to Do With Crocs

As long as you don’t participate in a marathon with your Crocs, you can do whatever you want with them. If you walk on pebbles or small rocks in the water, just make sure to place the straps on your heels to hold your feet. Otherwise, you may lose them! As I have mentioned it above, I highly recommend you to avoid walking on wet surfaces especially on tiled floors as the outsole tend to get slippery when they are worn out. If you have cats or dogs, do not leave them within their reach. Dogs chew them, and cats scratch them, well at least mine!


Who Are The Crocs For?

If you like shoes that are, comfortable, lightweight as well as easy to wash and that you can wear everywhere, then the classic Crocs are perfect for you. These are the type of shoes you can walk in without feeling you have shoes on your feet! Also, you can wear them for any purpose, whether to do watersport activity, walking on the beach, strolling in the town or just to go quickly to the supermarket.


Should You Buy Crocs?

    • Well, Yes, because these are super comfortable and lightweight, you can wear them all day long!
    • They are waterproof, which is awesome! You can use them as water shoes or as flip flops to take a shower if you don’t want to go barefoot on the floor. For example in public pools or camping showers.
    • They are extremely durable. They will serve you a long, long time!

  1. I have many times thinks about the crocs shoes but must admit that the view has had an effect on me. But like you say, comfortable shoes are important to own. And if you go to a festival you just change shoes.
    But thank you for the great information about the shoes, there was a lot of things I didn´t know like they were waterproof. So I have changed my mind and will get par or two.
    Just one question. Because of too many times, I´m in a rush, are the shoes solid, with balance in mind, if you need to run?

    • Hi, Johann,

      Don’t worry you are not the only one who finds them ugly:) Crocs have many other great qualities apart from being comfortable shoes. They are easy to slip on and off. They are easy to wash and dry. You can wear them everywhere, plus they are 100% waterproof! Oh, I almost forgot, they are super lightweight, which is extremely important! 
      To answer your question, it is impossible to compare Crocs to Balance shoes because they are totally different. But yes, Crocs are made of sturdy material and are durable. You can run in them if you have to catch a bus for example, but that’s all.To be honest, these shoes are only designed for walking and standing long hours!

      I hope it helped and if you need to know more info, don’t hesitate to drop leave a comment. I am always happy to help!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a lovely day!

  2. I am working on a shopping mall, one of the tenants is selling Crocs shoes, it is good because I have 2 of them which I wear on my casual days.

    But I am not buying for my children those under 12 years old. This is because at my working environment I saw most of the incident, kids Crocs shoes were stuck on the escalator, few months sure have 1 or 2 cases. I am afraid and avoid any worse incident happen on my kids so I denied their request. Just share my experience and view. Thanks

    • Hi, Jimmy,

      Thank you for sharing your experience, I really appreciate!
      Yes, Crocs are great to wear with casual outfits like jeans, shorts, etc.. 
      Well, to tell you the truth, my children wear Crocs since they were toddlers and nothing never happened, thank god! This kind of incident can happen with any open shoes like flip-flops or sandals for example. I always accompanied my children on elevators for safety reasons. However,  you will always find pluses and minuses in any product! 
      Thank you again for the comment and wish you a fantastic day!

  3. good article detailing how great Crocs are. It’s funny, growing up Crocs were always made fun of, so I had never purchased a pair because there was this huge stigma around them. I’m surprised to hear they are so widely received otherwise. They had always looked comfortable, but due to the stigma around them, I had never purchased a pair. May have to rethink that now!

    • Hi, Matt,

      Yes, most of the people find Crocs funny and ugly, but as I’ve mentioned it in the article, people tend to forget these details once they wear them because they are so comfortable! Most of my friends wear them, including my family and I. And we love them! There are specific places where I avoid wearing Crocs like at formal parties or weddings:) Obviously, it wouldn’t be appropriate! Otherwise,  these are great shoes to wear everywhere!

      Thank you for the comment and wish you a wonderful day!

  4. Hello Daniella
    Thanks for sharing, I do see many people especially those in the medical field and beauty therapists( people on their feet all day) mostly have crocs on.
    To me it was, how can anyone want to put on such unstylish shoes? but reading your review, I can well see why anyone will want to put on Crocs.Im mostly on my feet too all day and I do put on sports shoes but at the end of each day, my feet are smelly and swollen a bit.
    Another thing I have always been mistaken about is the weight, looking at them, one has a feeling they are heavy.After reading your review, I`m really convinced to get myself a pair,who would not want easy to clean and comfy shoes that are roomy?
    Really appreciate, thanks so much for explaining crocs, will definitely give them a go.

    • Hi Roamy,

      You are very welcome; it’s a pleasure to have you as a reader!
      Yes, indeed, many people in the medical and gastronomy field wear them because they are incredibly comfortable and lightweight. You don’t feel you have shoes when you wear Crocs. As you said, they are roomy and easy to clean, so who wouldn’t want a pair like this:) There is a reason why the Classic Crocs are so popular!

      Thank you very much for the kind comment and wish you a wonderful day!

  5. Definitely not the style of shoe I like …. but I have to admit that not only you say positive things, many friends of mine who use them, do not want to stop using them and buy different colors. What I like least is to think of the material that makes my feet sweat, but the softness makes me think about buying a pair of these shoes and having the personal experience

    • Hi Olga,

      Thank you for your honesty:) Yes, many friends of mine wear Crocs, too, and they love it! Once you wear them, you get hooked because they are ultralight and super comfortable.  As for the sweating problem, I wear them with socks, and my feet don’t sweat at all!
      Thank you for the comment and wish you lovely day!
