Awhile ago we had alot of info. concerning crocs. I live in New York and was unable to find them near me. I did see a picture of them online and wanted a pair. Recently I found them in Sears under another name. They only had womens sizes and they were not wide enough for me to get my swollen feet into. That was a disappointment. I am going to be on the look out for crocs for men. Maybe I will have some luck with them.

Hi, I'm new here, but while browsing the forums I saw your post re Crocs. I just bought a pair from, the "beach" style which is a little wider than their original. They are extremely comfortable. Crocs are not their web site will tell you, you just have to get the right size. Check them out, I was happy with selection, color fit, etc.

Hi Joanne,

I ordered my Crocs from the web; and actually you can call them with any questions that you have. I called, and they were very helpful.

It has been a while since I looked at the Crocs web site. Boy, do they ever have some new styles! There are two new ones specifically that look like they would be good for our feet! :D Think it's time to order another pair! :lol: Hope you find something that works for you.

Hi Everyone

This weekend I went to The Lowry its a stunning art museum
along side there is a factory outlet designer etc at low prices

We went to wonder round the shops see if there were any bargains
and i got the most wonderful suprise

SHOES THAT FIT Yes I could not believe it not only fit but 2 sizes smaller because they were broad enough. The young lady was so helpful
she gave me the web site and i found out they are in the USA to

they are called Fly Flot italian made now these i bout are mules
as shoes dig into my creases around the ankle but its like walking on air

The young lady in the shop did reccommend that finding a retail outlet would be best the first time as they are generous fits

as i did find out when i needed 2 sizes smaller It is worth a look
they are soft leather uppers and some actually have a clip out cushion inner sole that gives even more depth to the shoe if you swell

Since i have been able to get shoes on i have bough shoes much to large to get my swollen feet in them Well i bought 2 pairs and hopefully i will be back for more in the next couple of months

the web site is ... one-_-none

Silks xxxx

Hi Silkie,
I am so happy for you that you were able to find comfortable shoes. As I read your post I could see how happy you were. It truly is a special occassion! We all know what a thrill it is to find shoes that actually fit. What a bonus- 2 sizes smaller! You must be feeling very petite!

I never heard of that brand but I will certainly check it out. Thanks so much.

I could not live without my Crocs. Being up on my feet all day kills me in a lot of shoes, but not Crocs, they feel perfect. I really feel like I'm barefoot when I wear them. :D
