I saw these shoes in a mall kiosk and just had to buy them. I own about 12 different pairs of Crocs and can honestly say these are some of the best i've had in a while. I stand all day at work and Crocs are really the most comfortable shoes i've owned. The only problem with the shine of these shoes is you can see the cracks where the foot naturally bends, I bought them in black and not sure if you can see them more due to them being black or not. I also ordered the Gray non shiny ones and love those a bit more the matte on them didn't show the cracks as much.
