Have you been considering buying a pair of Crocs? If so, you might not know where to start.
When they first arrived on the scene, Crocs were widely considered to be a boating shoe. In fact, the very first model produced by the brand was called The Beach. When it debuted at the 2001 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, all 200 pairs sold out almost immediately.
Now, 20 years later, the brand continues to reign supreme. Once you wear Crocs, you’ll know that there isn’t a more comfortable or practical outdoor shoe. Even celebrities are jumping on the trend, making this the style to try this year.
Still on the fence? Today, we’re sharing 10 great reasons why it’s cool to rock Crocs!
1. They’re Insanely Versatile
Want to wear a sundress to an outdoor concert? Crocs look great dressed up, all while keeping your outfit comfortably casual. If you’re going for a more elevated look, simply find some that have a little bling, like these Crocs Sandals.
The shiny gold chain on this pair takes it from day to night with ease, making it your go-to summer shoe.
2. They Come in a Range of Colors
From tie-dye rainbow to solid black and every design you can think of in between, there’s a Croc for every personal style preference! When you want to stand out from the crowd, go for a rich red or a bright, robin’s egg blue. These bright yellow Crocs x Lost General BAE Sandals are also a fun option!
For days when you want something a little more neutral, stick with a classic pair of tan Crocs, or reach for a light gray model.
3. You Can Add Personality With Charms
Want to add even more pizzaz to your Crocs? The brand offers a huge collection of charms, called Jibbitz. You can use these to personalize the tops and soles of your shoes.
From school mascots and cartoon characters to fruits and florals, you can find a charm to meet just about any style. This is a great, inexpensive way to add personality to an otherwise solid pair.
Of course, you can also use this blank slate to pay homage to some of your favorite things. For instance, these quirky Crocs x KFC Sandals are just right for someone who appreciates a family-sized basket of Original Recipe tenders!
4. They’re Ridiculously Cmfortable
The first time you slip your foot into a pair of Crocs, you’ll know. Not only are these shoes fashionable and functional, but they’re also some of the cushiest, most supportive lines on the market.
Many people compare the sensation to walking on memory foam, thanks to the brand’s luxurious foam resin material, known as Croslite.
5. They’re Supportive
Do you spend a lot of time on your feet? Maybe you’re a busy college student, a hairstylist, or a healthcare professional. Or, perhaps you just want a great pair of shoes that will cushion your feet and keep your arches supported wherever you go.
You can walk around all day in Crocs without feeling pained or uncomfortable. For the most part, this is due to the ample amount of toe room that these shoes provide. This gives the front part of your foot lots of room to wiggle, which is especially beneficial if you suffer from bunions, blisters, or hammertoes.
6. They Can Be Antibacterial
Rarely can you sweat in a shoe and not be left with the disgusting aftermath. If you’re tired of holding your nose as you take your sneakers to the garage, then consider swapping them for Crocs instead.
The brand has one specific model, Rx Crocs, that’s actually lined with special antibacterial material. Not only does this material keep fungal and bacterial infections at bay, but it also keeps your shoes smelling fresher for longer.
7. They’re Water-Friendly
From the beginning, Crocs were made to be worn in and around water! This makes them excellent boating, fishing, or beaching shoes. They’re also great to wear in wet conditions, such as trekking to the garden in the early morning.
This way, you don’t have to worry about taking your shoes off, getting sandy, or accidently stepping on something sharp (like a shell!). You can walk around in confidence and keep your feet safe, too.
8. They’re Great All Year Round
Forget stashing your Crocs in the back of the closet when summer gives way to winter. These are the ideal all-year shoe and they look just as great with socks as they do with bare feet.
In addition to the original syle, you can find a range of other looks that are great for hot, cool, and even cold weather.
For instance, Crocs makes beautiful sandals and flip-flops for summer, which are perfect for walking on the beach or lounging by the pool. The Crocs LiteRide Sandals are some of our favorite. Featuring a cool slope heel, open toes, and a peppermint green shade, they’re a refreshing spin on a neutral slide.
When it’s slightly cooler (think fall or spring), you can transition into thicker wedges, which offer a little more coverage but still give you that breezy look.
In the winter, you can rock your Croc boots and fleece-lined clogs with confidence! They’re gorgeous, practical, and more economical compared to similar brands.
9. They’re Available in Kid’s Sizes
Want to rock matching footwear with your mini-me? If so, you’ll be glad to know that Crocs has a kid’s line! Many parents turn to the brand for a comfortable, slip-resistant first pair of shoes for their little one.
Featuring fun colors, characters, and lights, these pint-sized shoes are everything your toddler needs, and more. They’ll be the coolest kid on the playground, and you’ll be the equally fashionable parent at the bottom of the slide.
10. The Brand Gives Back
Crocs Cares is the brand’s philanthropic division. Its mission centers on giving back in three main sectors:
- The environment
From building trails to supplying meals through Feeding America, Crocs Cares gives back on a continuous basis, seeking out and filling needs around the world. In May 2021, the brand donated free pairs of Crocs to healthcare workers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
When you shop this line, you can rest assured that you’re doing your part to look great and give back.
