Boo Hiss on Croc for cutting corners on a great product
April 6, 2017
I agree with other reviewers that croc has changed the fit of the shoe. I have worn crocs for years. I wear them with socks and without socks, depending on the weather. I get a new pair when I wear a hole in the ball of the foot area in the old pair. I wear them to take a walk every day (I hate tennis shoes). I got these and the weather was warm and I wore them without socks and the edge at the top of my arch rubbed a blister on both of my feet, because croc has made the whole shoe box smaller and lower in the arch area. That has NEVER happened before. The back strap is also shorter, which will push your foot further into the shoe. I don't use the strap, but it I checked it out after reading other people's reviews about it and it is definitely shorter than the strap on my old crocs. Boo hiss on croc for now cutting corners on a good product. Makes me wonder if the sole is going to wear out faster now too....
For fit, I wear a size 8 women's shoe and I always buy crocs in size= 7 mens/9 womens. I don't know if sizing up will help with issues of how they changed the fit or if it would just be a more clown like shoe flopping on the foot (you gotta admit, they feel great, but have a clown shoe quality about them). : )
