Crocs -- my footwear of choice [for now, anyhow!]





You may [or may not] remember that I have had 2 foot surgeries in the fairly recent past -- one in October and one in late December of last year. Time has passed, and while there has been some improvement, it's becoming obvious that feet are probably always going to be an issue for me. I don't think running will be something I ever get into again, [so thank goodness for the love affair I have cultivated with my elliptical machine!] and I do believe I will have to carefully consider the footwear that I choose, at least for some time to come.

That being said, thank goodness for Crocs and their wide array of choices, both for summer and winter. At least now I have lots of options, and have exercised that option in a big way.

The above are my current summer favorites. I am almost embarrassed to admit how many pairs and colors I own. The one I like best? The top pair, the "Patra", which I own in the color shown. I actually do own at least one pair of each of the others pictured, in a variety of colors.

They make my feet feel good - and I think they look pretty cute too.

I had no idea there were so many different styles! The "Capri" picture really caught my eye... I'm such a flip flop girl! Thank goodness you've been able to find shoes that are comfy (and cute!) after all the foot surgery!

I love my Crocs. I have the rubber flip fops and the clogs and I wear them all the time! We just got Reed the bright yellow clogs and Zoey got the hot pink ones... at least we can find them in a crowd.

sorry about your feet. what a cute option crocs are for you! i've never owned a pair, but maybe now i'll have to!

I'm still not a convert to crocs, but with your sad little feet, they are truly a blessing! Those feet may always give you trouble, but my what beautiful feet they are! I always envy how cute your feet look in all your shoes...which you have a lot of ;)

I'm not a croc lover, but these are very cute! Plus I think comfort is what's important.

Stina said...

I love these. Crocs are my favorite shoes. I only have the 'original' ones and, sure, they are silly looking...but OH so comfy. I should check out the other styles. They are cute!

I'm a crock virgin but the Cleo pair is screaming my name! I've got to get something better than the $.99 flip flops I've been sporting. . .my feet are not happy!

Marilee said...

I have to admit that crocs have not been a fav of mine, but then I had no idea there were so many looks now. But then maybe if I saw them on my feet I would love them. I guess I just love my flip flops way too much.

Shelley said...

I like them. Some of 'em are even cute enough to wear to church (in my Hawaii-raised opinion!) Like the black mary-janes maybe. :) If it feels good and makes you happy, how could a croc be bad?

Nat Lud said...

I am all about the Crocs! They are really coming out with some great styles! I love that they have all sizes for the whole fam.

Emily J. said...

At least the styles are getting cuter. I still haven't boughten any though. I think I just might.

Sarah said...

I thought Crocs only came in one style! I LOVE the ones you posted. Thanks :) I need somethin' comfy for all the standing at school. Maybe I can even convince Rachel to take a look at them...maybe. She has awful foot pain, but is an anti-Croc.

Now those are some CUTE crocs!

Mel said...

I love my crocs. I have the top pair, Patra, as well. Love them!!

It's nice to see that they have some good-lookin models! I've always hated the original crocs...but these are very nice and look very comfy!! Hope your feet feel better!
