I Love My New Shoes!

Bought a pair of "CROCS" today for work...OMG!!! They are the most comfortable shoes EVER!!! As a Birkenstock clog wearer...these blow them away!!!
If you work in a kitchen, or anywhere that you are always on your feet, I suggest you get a pair!!!
They are very inexpensive, and way comfortable!!!

Cewl - I had seen these, just didn't register the name! My only concern if you're working in a pro kitchen, is the open back and the ventilation holes - not going to protect your feet much if something hot gets spilled on them.

I always wore the whole-heel Danskos, and loved those; did 18 hour stints in them comfortably.

I love my Crocs knockoffs, from Payless. Feels like wearing pillows on my feet.

Great for the garden, too-- hose the mud off and keep right on going.

what color did you pick? Where did you buy yours? Aren't there different brands but same style? We wanted to get them but always in hurry. Do they run true to size?

I've just broken in a pair of Swedish clogs that I ordered at the Restaurant Show. They took some getting used to, because they are wood, but now they are great, and give me much more support and sure-footedness than my Danskos.

Besides, they are purple, and go beautifully with my new chef pants!

I bought black, to go with most of my chef pants...

I bought them at a bike store, and they have many kinds...they don't run true to size...
I wear a 13 wide, and their size 12 fit me wonderfully!!!

Check out the crocs site www.crocs.com

These look incredibly comfy. D'ya think I could get away with wearing them for every occasion?

There are Crocs professional that have no ventilation holes on the top, just around the sides, and they have a full, but low back.

I really want a pair, I'm torn between pink and butter!
