Croc is still running narrow
I bought Adaras a year ago and planned to wear them the rest of my life, but CROCS discontinued them and even on places like Ebay they disappeared quickly. I have been in the outlet stores and bought on line numerous times, only to have to take the shoes back. I do have wide feet, but they fit the old CROCS beautifully with no problem. It seems that Crocs has decided to target the more narrow-fitted foot and I wish they would open a "Wide" line with the shoes that they built their fame on. I am so willing to spend money on these shoes, and it is so frustrating to have to keep returning them. The Patricia II is a great style, and I think the band across the top was added to give the sandal stability (a plus). But the bands are tight, and the instep is too low - it doesn't reach over the top of the foot either. I was very disappointed to have to take these back. I give this shoe a FAIL for not fitting, but three stars because I think it is made well for narrower feet. Not just "narrow" but also "shallow" on the instep.
