Crocs! - page 4

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

    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.
    she probably fell in the fake crocs. shall we call them 'frocs'?
    crocs were first marketed as boat shoes, specifically non-slip.

    did i mention i got the new mary-jane style crocs in gold!! love 'em!

    These are also available through podiatrists - I'm seeing one for PF and their in-office shoe store has them.
    Thanks for letting me know! Ordering online is quite expensive -- with added shipping cost.

    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 LOOOOOOVE my Crocs. Used to wear Dansko's, but they killed my knees - they're like walking on wooden blocks - no shock absorbance.

    I have really high arches, so I stick arch supports in my Croc's, and there you have the world's perfect shoe! And the fact that they're $30 - $40 each - how can you beat that?

    Thank God my hospital doesn't ban them. I'd be in pain all day without them.

    I was so happy to get the Crocs! My feet are much happier now!

    Are the vents on the side really necessary? I know that fluid will not run into the vents, but does it really help keep your feet cooler?

    Necessary, not really (they make a model that has no holes or vents also) but they keep my feet drier.

    Big time! I have a pair with no holes, and they get pretty hot...

    Thanks for the responses. I think I'll get a pair (I wear Danskos now) when I graduate (in December) to wait and see what colors my unit wears

    YES!

    I have a black pair with no holes that I wear with regular clothes. I have to say, my feet are kind of stinky and my socks are a little damp when I take them off later in the day. My work Crocs have the side vents but no holes on top, and they do keep my feet much drier ad odor-free. Think of how long nursing shifts are - can you imagine what shoes smell like after being on your feet for over 12 hours at a time?
