I'm Wearing Crocs and Hell Has Frozen Over

We Tried It 7

CrocsFirst, let it be known that I have nothing against Crocs.

How can I? My husband and children LIVE in Crocs in the summertime.

But I've always been pretty clear that it would be a cold day in hell before I'd be caught dead in them.

Well, that day has come -- but let's get one thing straight. CROCS TRICKED ME. 

I mean, do these boots look like Crocs to you?

I didn't think so!

(Also, does it look like I need to clean my mirror to you? Wait. Don't answer that.)

Here are the Croc boots I'm wearing. There is NO WAY you'd know they were Crocs, except that when you put them on, the soles are obviously Croc soles.

This kind of riding boot can be very useful for a number of reasons. For one thing, it's far more lightweight than your average boot, yet you still have that chunky riding boot look. For another, Crocs soles are truly all-weather and they're incredibly easy to clean off, no matter what you've stepped in. This is why I love them for my kids. And now, I'm really happy to have a pair of boots that I can basically wear anywhere and not worry about ruining the soles.

These boots aren't cheap. They're $104.99, to be exact. But that's a good hundred to two hundred dollars less than most of the riding boots I've seen in department stores.

Crocs Cobbler Hiking BootsMeanwhile, my husband, a huge Crocs fan, is currently sporting these Crocs Cobbler Hiking Boots -- they're another Crocs creation that you'd never know were Crocs until you put them on and realize that that heavy-looking sole is actually a lightweight Crocs sole. I'm a big fan of these boots. Men's boots are SO heavy -- these are light as air.

CrocsBut these kids' Crocs are my absolute favorite. As I've told you, my children LIVE in Crocs all summer long, and I'm always a little dejected when cold weather comes and I spend countless precious minutes each day helping them find matching socks and then having to zip and velcro and lace up their winter shoes.

Now, both kids have fleece-lined Crocs. The fleece is wonderfully soft and warm, so they have easy-on, easy-off play shoes for winter that require no socks, no lacing, no zipping, no buckling ...


Ladies, we've had a longstanding Crocs debate here on The Stir and now I have to ask the Crocs opposition: Do these "sneaky" Crocs change your mind? And if you're a Crocs fan already, do these new Crocs make you love them even more?

Note: Crocs sent our family these shoes to try out for ourselves. Clearly, my opinions are my own!

My two love Crocs, and everytime we go to the Croc store I see something cute that I absolutely love (like those boots), but for the pricetag I absolutely cannot justify spending that kind of money. Insane.

I probably wouldn't wear them.  When I went to the store looking for riding boots, I fully expected to spend over $100 at the store I was looking at.  However, to my surprise, I found a pair & the brand was Big Buddah (never heard of it before) but they were $89.99!!!!  Look on amazon if you don't have them in a local store.

I have a pair of Croc black, strappy wedges that I wear in the summer. Very cute and comfortable. Got 'em NWT on Ebay for $20 ;-)

I love my crocs.  I have some of the traditional ones, a pair of cute flats, and some furry clog-type crocs.  I'm on my feet all day, and they are lightweight and comfy.  I'm not trying to impress anyone with my shoes, except for my feet!

I have a pair of bright pink and red.  I wear the pink every morning to go to my workout and then when I walk the dog and usually they're the shoes I slip my feet into at the end of the day.  Usually my feet say Ahhhhhhh, thank you.  THAT'S why I wear crocs!
