Bought these to wear after foot surgery. I never had a pair of crocs because I thought they were ugly. These were on a Steals and Deals sale. I thought they looked like a normal shoe, and they do. I have only been able to wear them once, since my foot is swollen. The one time I wore them, I was VERY impressed with their comfort. They are so very comfortable, and I look forward to wearing them. My daughter-in-law didn't believe they were crocs! She didn't know they had "normal" looking shoes either. I think they will be my new favorite brand of shoe!
