    I love my pair. I just got them a month ago. They're kind of ungly but comfortable. They are airy -- so bacteria doesn't breed as easily as in conventional shoes.

    My pair, which I bought here in South Korea cost 44,000 won. But they were made in China.

    Insertions of comfortable footpads increase the bouncy sensation when walking. I have big feet. I have always had a problem getting shoes to accommodate the width of my feet. So my pair are 13's.

    Does anyone else have a pair of crocs? What do you think? Don't tell me it's justa' crock though.

    I realize they are not appropriate for all occasions. But I am wearing them more than my other pairs of shoes -- ugly or not.

    They are great for kids shoes. My three year old has a Scooby-Doo pair (he picked it out), and my youngest just has a normal pair.

    It is great in the summer because they can get wet without being ruined.

    Is that because its cheap (Like Budweiser) or is it good? Maybe thats not fair to ask you since you dont imbibe. Im just trying to establish if these people have lives or are they mindless machines like the Chinese.

    They're one of the ugliest things made by man but my hubby loves them and I've heard so many people rave how nice they are that I'm tempted to get some myself. He said they're extremely comfy.

    "Ungly."

    Yes...it's simply a typo...but there might be a new word in there somewhere...

    Any shoes can be "ugly"--but only rubber shoes full of holes can be "ungly."

    :D :D

    I always feared them, especially when I saw one on the edge of a river!

    Never heard of the shoes!

    Cheers,

    I have not actually tried on a pair of real crocks.....

    Being as I have the wide foot problem, I have turned to wearing Birkenstocks on 99.99 percent of my occasions. Because I love my Birks so, I have a hard time considering Crocs because they appear to make my feet sweat, nor do they appear to give support like birks do.

    Granted, Birks can be expensive, but I have ebayed most of mine so that I bid my max, which is usually no more than $30 for any pair. They last me at least three seasons.
