They're also easy to clean.

I have 8 pairs which range from the functional Pearl to my favorite Pirates of the Caribbean ones... I don't wear regular shoes anymore and my feet stopped hurting after the first night I wore them.
- 0Oh lordie-not in my opinion! Crocs are Waaaaaaaaaaaay better than frocs!
Have you seen all the new crocs on their website?! There's like, a hundred! I just put a few on my christmas list (even though I have 8 pairs already) But hey-a true croc lover needs to have the ones that are fuzzy inside!

It actually works well but my Crocs are Pearl colored and the tape quickly turns a nasty black which looks cruddy if you look at the bottom of your shoe. I usually only notice it when I'm on the phone waiting to give report but it still bothers me seeing it. :uhoh21: I just change the tape frequently between washings but I'm curious to try the new Crocs for Professionals since another poster remarked that they don't give you the dreaded sudden stop. I noticed the even newest version of Crocs for nurses have closed heels in addition to the closed toes and they conform to your foot similar to how Danskos do. I also notice they have extra tread gripping toward the toe. I would think that would make Croc Stop even worse. Has anyone tried any of the new designs listed on this website below? I don't remember the Professional Crocs having the toe tread. They aren't listed in this link:
Croc Stop. ROFL. That is too funny.
One time I was walking down a hallway by myself and had the dreaded "croc stop" which immediately propelled me face first to the floor. The problem was by the time I landed on the floor I was laughing so hard I couldn't get up. I was thinking, "I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Strollin' along, feeling all confident that I have this walking thing down after 54 years, then WHAM! Croc stop!
