Crocs! - page 3

I just got a pair not long ago-a gamble though I must say. How they heck are they so good!? I have Plantar Faciitis-I had Berkies which were so much better than my tennis shoes but man, my heels... Read More

    Hi: Crocs last about 8 hours for me (I usually work 13 to 14 hours shifts) and then BAM! bi-feet blowout! Got some good advice and bought a pair of Merrill's...they are the best and most foot-friendly that I have found. They are comfortable all shift and are not too terribly expensive. My next choice would be Dansko, then Birks (these are a little hard, where as the Merrill's are nice and cushy). Happy walking everybody!

    Have any of you seen the crocs buttons you can put in the holes of the shoes on top? A few stores here at the beach sell them and they are just adorable. Hearts and butterflies, stuff like that. A lot of nurses have bought them and they look great. Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen them.

    I have ladybugs.

    I have seen them, but my crocs don't have holes. But they are cute

    i just got my knock of crocs (allheart brand) they were a deal i am hoping they help me out. i burnt out my walmart dr. scholls. has anyone tried the allheart version and liked them?
    they are ok, not as comfy as crocs though. i found that the bumps on the inside that are supposed to let your feet grip are more bumpy than crocs, and they actually hurt my feet, especially if i wear them without socks (i do not use them for nursing clinicals, just for bumming around).

    my school does not allow crocs for clinicals, but i was curious, for those of you that wear them for work and love them, do you wear socks? i would think you'd have to but i was not sure.

    The facility I work at just banned them - the corporation says that they are a greater fall risk of sliding in urine, etc.
    I think that's bogus, personally - I've tried to slide with mine on a wet floor, and they aren't any worse than other shoes.
    My facility did as well. But not until after someone actually did fall. She tripped over her own two feet. Now we all must pay. Some people wear them anyway, I just chose not to make waves. I have been sticking to birks while at work. Unfortuanely I somehow got my crocs into the wash. Now they are too small. :uhoh21: So at some point I need to go buy some more.

    I wear my "Professionals" to work most of the time and my New Balance running shoes the rest of the time. The Crocs are the best for longer shifts and I do wear them with socks...the padded ankle type. I have had zero foot-fatigue or pain while wearing the Crocs. I've also found that I wear the same size as my regular shoes.

    Keep On Truckin!

    Crocs relieved my hip pain. I bought Merrell and Dansko -- never helped (Dansko made the pain worse, actually). I bought 2 pairs of Metro and a pair of Highland. Both are discontinued models, and I searched for "ages" online to get hold of these models. Metro I believe is now the Relief, which can only be purchased through Crocs website. I just bought another pair... can't wait to see/tried them.

    These are also available through podiatrists - I'm seeing one for PF and their in-office shoe store has them.

    I've never worn Crocs without socks.

    I always wear socks for them at work. My feet would sweat too much in a plastic-type shoe and my foot would slide around. Plus the heel strap would rub my heel raw without socks at work.

    My home pair is the kind that has the holes, and i don't wear socks with those.

    Did someone mention on here that crocs are antimicrobial?

    Theree's a pair of Crocs ("Silver Cloud") that supposedly had silver particles mixed in the material that combats odor, fungus, and microbes.

    The other models are labeled as "bacterial and odor resistant".
