Crocs Brand Shoes - page 4

I did a search on Crocs to see if this has already been discussed and I merely received a message saying I'd need to wait 20 seconds to try again, so I assume not. I just bought my first pair of... Read More

    I just wore my first pair the other day for 8hrs. During that 8 hrs I sat down for about 20 min. No pain in my feet, or back from the hard hospital floors. Love them! (i wore the Metro style) I also love that you can dump them in a bucket of water and bleach to clean them.

    Curious, let's say you are working in those cute crocs with the holes in the top and you drop a needle bam and (my luck) it would end up right in my foot. I am thinking I would be liable for my own injury by not wearing shoes that protect my feet. I would like to get some but just thinking about needle sticks in my feet freak me out.
    At the hospital I do PRN work at we aren't allowed to wear the one's with holes in them due to infection control. Is that happening anywhere else?

    We're not wupposed to wear anything but white shoes, although some people manage to get away with wearing some that are more color than they are white. Myself, I figure I have to wear something that I can work in!!! Either they want me there with feet or at home with the poor old things propped up!!<G> fortunately my new Birks are white!

    Crocs come in an off white color. They seem to pass for most hospitals that require white.

    I'm really disappointed in them myself. Day #1 is great, the days following are awful. After a couple of days off we are back to Day #1 again.

    I purchased a pair of Asics Gel shoes and they bite too. So, I ordered a pair of Birkenstocks and we'll see what they do.

    I don't know if there is something wrong with my feet or if at the ripe old age of 43 I'm too old to do this job anymore. I have never experienced this level of discomfort before. Just driving home is agony. After sitting long enough to drive home I find myself limping when I walk in my front door. It is as though once I sit down for more than 15 minutes my feet go on strike.

    I have two friends that are podiatrists. If the Birks don't work I'm going to call one of them and beg for help.

    I bought a pr of Birks too and didn't like them. Another $125 wasted. Also have a pr of Dansko Sport Clogs. They're ok. I do like my crocs tho. But since we have to wear all white shoes now, I had to put my hot pink pr away.
