    Crocs solve leg problems?

    I bougth a pair of crocs and they helped on our first trip to WDW
    I was just wondering what is the difference between the croc caymans and beach and if anyone has some Mary Janes, how do they feel?

    i love crocs - these are the only shoes i have every worn to disney that have protected my feet from aching!!! i am slowly but surely 'converting' people to croc-lovers! it's true - we go to disney once to twice every year, always for 8 days for one trip - and feet hurting is finally a thing of the past!!! the caymans are slightly wider than the beach and mary jane models - caymans are the way to go if you have ever had a wide foot or had problems finding shoes that fit. crocs do not make your feet sweaty or stinky (they are not hard plastic, but some kind of foam or resin), and they are not slippery! they truly are heaven sent for me! give them a try!

    i couldn't believe how often i saw those shoes at disney! the giftshop at pop century was selling them with little mickey head holes and then you could add charms and whatnot but it was really expensive to do. i think the shoes in themselves were like 37 bucks. i had just gotten new sneakers and they were just fine but i wouldn't have minded the croc's too!

    and i have to say, when i first read the title of this post, i thought you meant the animal "crocs" and i couldn't figure out how they'd help your legs! lol

    CROCS - my daughter wore them for 1 day to school and got a blister where the black part on the insice is. Is there any way to prevent this? Do you guys that love them use any kind of deodorant spray or anything before wearing them?

    She could probably put on a bandaid or moleskin. I usually wear them with shorty socks.

    I have to wear socks with "new" Crocs. Once you break them in they are okay. But then, I have to wear socks with new sandals usually until I get a callous where they come into contact with my feet. (I have very dainty feet.)

    According to the Crocs website....your foot shouldn't even touch the back or sides of the shoe. It says to size them so they are not snug or even a perfect fit, but rather a bit sloppy.

    They come into contact with the top of your foot when you walk. I usually have to rub a callous across the top of my instep every spring.

    Okay, callous doesn't sound exactly right, but toughen up the skin there. You know what I mean.

    I just ordered a pair of the Disney croc's http://www.shoebuy.com/sb/s.jsp/r_pr...2/sbstl_406024

    I used the 10.00 promo and got them for 25.00!!!!

    Things I have learned living in ARKANSAS
    1. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
    2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in ARKANSAS.
    3. We have four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer and Christmas.
    4. A carbonated soft drink is not a soda, cola or pop...It's a 'coke' regardless of brand or flavor. Ex...What kind of 'Coke' do you want?
    5. People actually grow and EAT okra!!
    6. Sweet Iced Tea is appropriate for all meals.
    7. You have to switch from 'heat' to A/C in the same day.
    8. All the festivals across the state are named for an animal, insect, grain, vegetable or fruit.
    9. You work until you are done or it's too dark to see.
    10. Everyone can't be an Arkansan: You have to be BRAVE to live here!

    I went to the site Stac and didn't see the promo. My Mom ordered me the black ones while at WDW and I was thinking about getting the red ones as well.

    Do they sell the Crocs with the Mickey heads in them anywhere online???

    I knew I should have bought them when I was in WDW.
    I saw them at Hallmark but the lady at the store told me they only come in kids sizes with Mickeys in them.

    EDIT - If I could read I would find the link like three posts above mine. Sorry folks!

    2FLING07 is the code, it is 10.00 off 1 item or 20.00 off 2.
