So, I was recently in the market for a new pair of sandals and many people recommended that I get a pair of Crocs sandals. They are very comfortable, are made of strong rubber that holds up, are well made and will last a long time, they said.
So, I dished out $35 a pair for not one, but two, pair of Crocs Athens sandals. They are described on Crocs website as:
“Crocs™ Athens, the trendsetter. The first Crocs™ sandal to feature the double cushioned footbed for additional comfort and support and with a croslite™ material toe post your feet will be thanking you. This shoe is classic Crocs™ style in an amazing flip-flop.
- Offers a double-cushioned, extra soft footbed and the standard Crocs™ circulation nubs.
- Slip-resistant and non-marking soles.
- Ergonomic Italian styling; wide, roomy foot bed; made with croslite™ material.”
I have never in my life actually heard of a pair of foot wear shrinking, but these Crocs have done it!
So, while Crocs is “the brand” everyone seems to love, these just did not impress me. Hopefully, if Crocs reads this blog, they may add a comment on how they might correct this problem. Otherwise, I am giving them to Danielle who is now 11, because they are way too small for my feet but fit hers just fine.
