Like Crocs? Try these!

  1. Love my new Crocs-I got the specialist model with the vents. They have better arch support than the other models, and are closed on top, so if you work in a wet environment you're OK. I give them a big thumbs up. Oh, and I haven't experienced a "Croc stop" yet in this model(although now that I've made that claim, I'll be tripping all over the place!).

    Same here. Love those specialist vents. Only drawback is when it rains and the inside gets wet, making that loud squishy sound with every step. I have had them for a couple of months now and have only had a few minor croc stops, nothing severe.

    I have the ventless model - we cannot have any holes - and they are working very well. I have noticed that I haven't been tripping as much as normal, too. They have a higher back and come in true white (not the pearl greyish color).

    I have seen up to M15 on there. They have different stock in different colors. If you select a size/color combination that is not in stock, they will email you when it is in.

    I do think that crocs are about 1 size bigger than traditional sizing at least for women.
    And the specialist rocks cant wear the vent cause we cant have any holes, but i have also noticed a lot less of the croc stops.

    I just got the 'specialist' too, and found I had to reorder a size larger. The old ones (relief? I think...) were almost too big, and yet these were far too tight. I have a very high arch, and that is where the problem was; the bigger size is perfect tho'

    I have a pair of these in blue with no vents and LOVE them. I had to return and re-order in a larger size, too, but I refuse to wear sneakers now - nothing compares to how comfortable my Crocs are. I know a lot of people hate them and I'll be the first to admit that they're really pretty ugly, but I have 3 pairs (1 pair of the holey clogs, 1 pair of sandals, and the specialist ones) and I want a couple more eventually so I can wear them in even more situations! Love them.

    I'm going to try the size women 10, men's 8 to start. I wear a 9.5 woman's shoe. Think these will be large enough? I hear they do stretch out with wear.

    I wear a 9.5 wide shoe and the size 10 woman's croc is very roomy when new (but not enough to be called too big for my foot). I think you will do fine with that size. Really can't tell if they stretch out with wear since they seem to conform to the foot better with time and usage.

    Okay, thanks. I ordered the white ones (black was OOS ugh) so I'll see how they fit. thanks again

    I'm a die-hard croc fan, and I recently got my first pair of the "specialist" model with air vents. And yes, I'm buying a few more of those, absolutely love the tighter fit. And like a previous poster said: I have yet to do a "croc-stop" in them...
