    I feel silly asking but people tell me that crocs are the best shoes to wear. I havent seen them and wouldnt know where to get them.

    What are they and why are they so good??

    I have the Disney ones in pink :D They are the most comfortable shoe I have ever ever worn in my whole life and considering that I'm no spring chicken that is saying alot :lol:

    Here's a link to where you can find them on sale here in the states occasionally http://www.shoebuy.com/crocs-womens-shoes.htm

    I could do Disney all day in these, oh wait I have done Disney all day in my pink ones :lol:

    There are several different styles and I too, love them. :yes: I have three/four versions. of them. http://www.crocs.com

    You can see a wide variety in the Orlando Airport. There is a Crocs store there. Shoebuy.com will be much cheaper though. :yes:

    I LOVE my Crocs! My new favorite is the Cleo. It is pretty open and is just as comfortable as the beach version but my feet are more free.

    Shoebuy is the best place to get them cheap in the states.

    Many places now have knock off versions of Crocs. The only place that is as good as the Croc brand is the AirWalk version from Payless shoes. The others are rubbish.

    If you google "shoebuy codes", you should be able to find a discount code too.

    The Cleos are awesome. I wasn't sure they would offer much support but they did great when we went to Universal and IOA last weekend.

    The Airwalks are ok, but they wear out fast. I had a pair, early on and the soles were smooth in a short time. Smooth soles are not fun on Crocs when it's wet outside! :eek:

    Stick with the name brand ones.

    'Catz, more and more docs are recommending Crocs to diabetics. :yes: There is even a style made just for diabetics. Part of the reason is because they are so clean. You can wash and disinfect them with no effort at all.

    I've not tried the Cleo, Johnie. Are they wide?

    They are brilliant, I only wish I'd bought some when I went to florida! I wear mine ALL the time now. I have khaki green beach/cayman ones, and some Athens sandals in blue and champagne. They are brilliant and SO SO comfortable! My mum and dad have some too, my dad has black caymans and my mum has candyfloss pink ones :yes:
    They do new Diabetic rx crocs, especially made for diabetic people, you know?
    My dads friend has them and said they're brilliant, even better than normal crocs:

    The Cleo seems to be wide. I have wide feet and I have plenty of room. I've heard that the Adara is even wider. Some people have noted they have a hard time keeping them on their feet.
