I have a very wide and long foot (12W in womens) and I bought these when I was teaching swim lessons one summer a couple of years ago. They are Very comfortable, even in the arch. I have higher arches and cannot wear most flip flops, but I loved these. As with other reviews, I have 2 different sizes in the 2 different colors I own. Ended up giving the black ones to my husband because they were too big, but the chocolate/blue ones fit great. My biggest complaint is that the bottoms wear out much much faster than the rest of the crocs shoe and no longer have any grip so they become VERY slippery if near water.

The very first pair of Crocs I owned was the original Athens flip flop over 10 years ago. The Athens is my go to style: I wear them daily as house shoes, change to a different pair or color to wear to work or run errands --- they are the standard. As a lady with wide, long feet, I could always depend on the Athens to fit. Sadly, that has now changed. I just received my first 2 pairs of the redesigned Athens in the mail, and wow, what a difference. They are almost 1.5" shorter, almost 1" narrower, and much thinner from top to bottom than a brand new pair of Athens I got at the end of last summer and was saving when it appeared Crocs was getting rid of the Athens all together. There does seem to be an increase in heel padding (always a good thing!), but instead of the comfortable fit I'm used to, I now have the same "foot almost hanging off the back and sides" battle I have constantly fought with other brands of shoes. I have read the other "these shoes are too wide" reviews from the last month and I don't agree. Over the past 2 years, it has seemed that Crocs is abandoning those of us who helped bring them to the party: customers with wide feet who have trouble finding shoes to fit. PLEASE don't forget about us wide foot ladies!

Black and blue??

By 

from Clearwater, fl

Comments about Crocs Athens:

Wow Crocs, you're determined to make me seek out another make of flops aren't you? Here we are at the beginning of summer and all you can offer are 2 colors - and one of them is black! In 3 small sizes! I've been wearing Athens for over 10 years now, but I'm tired of visiting your website only to find the same meager offerings over and over. I'm sitting here looking at the last pair I bought in desperation- brown! Time to move on.

Great Cushy Heel, Not Much Arch Support

Comments about Crocs Athens:

These shoes are great in so many ways. I wore them on long walks right away, and I had no rubbing or blister issues. I loved the cushy feeling in the heel. That was a really nice surprise.
However, I did have that "fatigued arch" feeling after the walk, because they just don't have enough arch support for me. I have high arches, but I don't think there's much support at all.

    Comments about Crocs Athens:

    Athens flip flops are a life saver! They are comfortable, fit me well (I need the extra width and support they provide), and even recommended by my podiatrist! The supportive arch and cupped heel make them extremely comfortable and perfect for wearing all day long whether I am walking significant distances or just at home. I wear these sandals year round with jeans, shorts, casual skirts and sundresses. They are my # 1 go to foot wear in my closet. I wear Athens flip flops daily. Please bring back more colors in this style. I especially liked the brown/khaki combination. I have worn out at least 10 pairs of these flip flops over the years and have exhausted the secondary market for all colors but black. Please, help me and my health by bringing back more colors to your Athens lline. P. S. I have several friends who also wear the Athens flip flops and desire more colors.

        I love my athens - but these feel slightly different from previous versions - not as much arch support or heel cradling as others, but will keep them and wear them.

            My pair of Athens initially felt comfortable until I started trying them on and wondered why it felt off balanced and my Right big/2nd toe felt pressure from the tip front [black] of the slipper. I noted that my right heel was further into the slipper than the left leaving about an inch difference. It was in all estimate a very defective product in my case anyways.

                A:

                The green is a color that is not currently in production. From our site the only colors we will have available will be listed. You can also search third party websites for this item, but there are no guarantees that anyone will carry them.

                A:

                The Athens is a very popular shoe, much more so then the Duet wave flip. They should both offer the same support. The Duet Wave has dual-density construction: softer uppers, more durable outsole while the Athens has double-cushioned, extra soft footbed.

                I am so sorry that the Athens is not offered in the size you need. At this time we are not expecting to go down sizes in this style, but your comments have been forwarded to our production team. Currently any Men's size 2 will only be available in Juniors shoes as a Men's 2 = A Juniors 2

                A:

                This style is offered in our roomy fit option, which is designed to provide a little extra room around the entire foot for comfort. I suggest going with the same size you currently wear in other styles. In this case, I would go with the size 7. The Athens style is offered in both men's and women's sizes.
