Crocs Rx models

  1. Has anyone tried the new crocs Rx models - specifically the Relief model, which is almost identical to the Professional model but is supposed to have a softer footbed and a more flexible upper.

    I bought my first pair of crocs recently (Endeavour model, with NO vents) and they were more comfortable than I could have imagined, but they were TOO HOT and my feet sweat because of no ventilation. So I went to Crocs to order the Professional, but saw the Relief ones and ordered them instead. They are also supposed to run a tad wider in the toe box, and my wider guy feet may fit better in these.

    Just wondering if anyone had first-hand experience comparing the newest models to the originals.

    Thanks!

    No, but keep us posted. I love the Mary-Janes because they're cute, but really, they're too narrow for me.

    I only have the beach model. They are wonderful. I walked and walked in Disney World until I thought my legs would fall off but my feet felt great!

    I happen to have these, bought the silver cloud RX model and LOVE LOVE LOVE them! The toe box is roomier and the higher back is a bonus protection too. I have been plagued with heel spurs and these shoes were a welcome relief. I have spent big money on shoes in the past and this was the best 40.00 I have EVER spent!

    I have the Crocs RX relief model and am a huge fan! After spending many hours on my feet, I don't have any pain. Usually my feet start to hurt after a few hours standing on hard surfaces as my arches collapse. Not anymore though!

    I got them shipped free and less than the normal $40 with discounts from a site called the Orthotic Shop.

    Like a previous poster said, best $40 you can spend for your feet!

    I have a pair of Rx Crocs (from the podiatrist) and I live in them around the house. They are the first thing my feet touch when I get out of bed. They have holes so I can't wear them to work, and they're not for working out, but for everything else they ROCK!

    I would like to purchase crocs but do not know where you find all the different styles mentioned? Online or in stores? I have spent so much money on everything from Dansko to Merrill's - are crocs any better?

    Thanks.

    I ordered mine from Crocs.com, not sure if you can buy the RX models in the stores? Check the store locator on the website, I am sure you can find someplace near you that you can shop.

    A word of caution, I only get the Crocs, not the lookalike ones.

    :bowingpur Thanks Lori. I spend long, long hours on the unit and will try the Crocs. I just gave away a new pair of Dansko's (worth $125.00). Pretty expensive lesson!

    My future husband was injured in Iraq...land mine. He's had extensive foot surgery, and went through many ortho shoes. He tried Crocs and now is able to walk without a cane! He showed them to his Surgeon and was told they were an excellent choice. He now walks 2 miles a day without so much as a limp! He tried on an old pair of his ortho shoes and started limping within an hour.He's in Crocs all the time now.
