Many folks who’ve tried cheap knockoffs of Crocs but never the real thing may not know what they’re missing.
This review covers the Hello Kitty glitter clog for toddlers and preschoolers and two types of adult shoes – Neria Work and Specialist.
The pink Hello Kitty glitter clogs, tried on a 5-year-old girl in a size 12/13, are simply gorgeous. Crocs.com appears to be out of stock in the pink color but still has them available in silver for $34.99, minus whatever discount might be available. They’re so pretty and comfortable that she wants to wear them everywhere. She and her older sister have tried both real Crocs and imitations, and the fake ones invariably look cheap and sometimes hurt their feet by rubbing them uncomfortably in certain spots.
Crocs.com has an amazing selection of licensed products, including some nifty “Star Wars” shoes for kids in designs such as Storm Trooper, R2D2, Yoda, Darth Vader and Jedi. Crocs also offers other Hello Kitty designs and an array of additional characters, including Minnie Mouse, Spiderman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Lightning McQueen, Disney Frozen and Dora the Explorer.
In addition, Crocs come in a variety of patterns, designs and colors, including classic clogs as well as fuzzy lined ones for wearing in cooler weather. Crocs come in dual sizes (6/7, 8/9 and so forth) for toddlers and preschoolers. Single number sizes start at 1, which most kids probably hit around age 7 or 8.
Neria work shoe
For adults, Crocs are widely appreciated for their comfort, especially for people who spend many hours a day on their feet or who have painful foot conditions like plantar fasciitis.
The Neria Work shoe comes in black, white and espresso (brown) in women’s whole sizes 4 through 11 for $47.99. Crocs advises ordering to the next smallest size down for half sizes and provides an online chart for guidance on the type of fit each shoe design has. The Neria Work shoe has a relaxed fit, making it a more loose-fitting shoe for standard feet but not restrictive for wider ones. The heel has a very loose fit, which some with heel pain might find refreshing but others may not like.
The Specialist shoe comes in women’s whole sizes 4 through 12 and men’s whole sizes 4 through 13, in black, white, khaki and navy colors. It features a roomy fit that people with wide feet should find exceptionally comfortable.
Excellent selection of shoes
As with the kids’ shoes, grown-up Crocs come in a wide variety of styles, colors and designs besides the standard clogs, including lined shoes to help feet feel cozy and warm during winter. Items purchased from Crocs.com can be returned, unworn, for a refund, or if worn, for an exchange, by mail or to an official Crocs-owned retail store.
