They look better on than I thought
I needed a pair of flats to take on a trip; and I love Crocs because you can slop through almost anything, give them a quick wash, and you're as good as new. It also helps that Crocs can look really cute. I must admit I didn't love this style and didn't consider buying this shoe for a long time. What changed my mind was the relaxed fit. I'm a fairly standard size 8.5 medium. In Crocs, size 8 fits me the best and I have always found size 9 to be too big. In closed toe shoes, Crocs size 8 are just a little short for me. My big toe touches the end of the shoe, not real comfortable, and in some styles, I get blisters on my little toes until the shoe stretches out a bit - I really wish Crocs would make half sizes. Anyway, if I can't have an 8.5, a size 8 relaxed fit closed toe Croc is much more comfortable than their standard size 8. I'm not sure that I could keep this shoe on though if it didn't have the elastic around the top. I share the same concerns expressed by other reviewers about the durability of the elastic, because if the elastic breaks, the shoe will be unwearable and they're not that cheap. I ordered the navy with the yellow elastic and I'm pleased with the way they look on my feet. Now, only time will tell how durable the elastic will be.
