Crocs for children. Just a big fat yes.
I know. I do.
Can you actually think of any item of footwear more suitable for a child than one made of rubber?
Now, more importantly – why spend £25 on ‘real’ crocs when there are so many ‘mocks’ available for under £4?
Well… actually, having been sent some genuine Crocs for review, I have to say I’m converted.
Genuine Crocs are moulded to provide really good foot support – when your child will be spending most of their summer waking hours outside in these, don’t you want them to be as well-made as the winter shoes you buy so carefully? These aren’t flimsy enough to allow thorns to pierce them, straps to break off, or for toes to peer through the holes after an ambitious jump-and-landing. Oh no. These are sturdy shoes – well up to skate parking, field yomping, mountain stream dam building, and rocky beach clambering.
They don’t mark my children’s feet, despite wearing them all day long in extremely hot weather; in fact they are SO comfortable they are unfailingly the shoe of choice when small people head to the shoe box.
On top of all THAT, they come in such a huge selection of styles and colourways there is bound to be one to please everyone. You’re not restricted to the clog styling – oh no. There’s ones to look like hiking sandals, mules, traditional sandals, flip flops, ballet pumps, Spongebob ones, Hello Kitty ones… And if you head to the Crocs website you are sure to find something fab.
