FASHION, Uncategorized CROCS ‘SANTA CRUZ’ FLATS 22 December 2008

I just had to blog these because they are AMAZING. Another Hong Kong purchase. They’re Crocs ‘santa cruz’ flats and they actually shock me by how fantastic they are. I’ve gone a bit ‘off’ ballet flats, because they’re just too, well, flat. They don’t really support my feet and my heels get sore since there’s no cushioning. Plus, they make my feel look a bit lumpy.

I really liked these Crocs flats because they have a really bouncy cushioned sole, that’s really really comfortable on the inside because it has those little nubby things that massage your foot. The canvas upper looks really flattering on my foot and helps my feet breathe. Most incredibly, THEY ARE SO LIGHT!!!!! These shoes are so ridiculously light it’s like you’re walking barefoot. I walked all around Hong Kong with these for hours and don’t get all the typical isssues I normally get – blisters, or shoes that bite at the heel, or sore toes, or sore heels, etc, etc… One of the very BEST shoes I’ve bought in a long, long time.

Totally, absolutely impressed with them. I want to get them in a different design now 🙂


Very normal-looking Crocs

They’re ULTRA comfy and so so so so light!

      Fully with you.. my heels hurt if they’re too flat. You should check these out when you’re near the store – I find them far comfier than our black sketchers for extended use now!

    Hey they actually look normal haha. I hate the look of those other Crocs everyone has. I’m looking for some new flats coz the Diana Ferrari ones I bought a couple of months ago aren’t anywhere near as comfortable as they used to be, maybe I’ll check these out….:)

      Hahah I know, the traditional Crocs are a bit.. um.. strange.

      Def check these out, I’m astounded by how comfy they are, yet they look nice too! So pretty with jeans

    Thanks for the recommandation! I’ve been looking for a pair of comfortable flats for work because we have to be on our feet all day and these are perfect. I’m always in sneakers or Hush Puppies (which are kinda unstylish) at least these are cute! Now i have to decide on a color! 🙂

    This does look v. comfy.. I actually had the other rubbery maryjane Croc.. The issue with that was that i pespire & it bites my feet.. I don’t know why.. But the one that you had looks good.. 🙂

      Ahh yeah I can imagine those rubbery crocs would do that.. I can’t wear ’em anyway ‘cos they make my feet look really strange and big 😛

    Those canvas uppers make the shoes look like espadrilles – cool. I love Crocs Primas because they are so comfy and aren’t too clumpy.

      Yeah the chunky Crocs are just too strange looking for me.. i like these streamline ones 🙂

    I love your rec’s cos’ I totally trust your judgement! I wouldn’t have otherwise ever gone near a pair of crocs but these are actually very nice and sound like the comfy shoes I’ve been looking for (after I tried keds and found them very uncomfy)

    Reply
    • beverly posted on December 24, 2008 at 3:45 am

      Yeah I don’t like the regular ones either.. they’re so unflattering IMHO 😛

      I have Keds too! Theyr’e comfy but only for abt 2-3 hrs of walking.. after that my arches and heels get sore and it rubs a ‘lil. But with these crocs, they feel the same as the Keds, but much lighter and NO soreness at all for the entire day!

    Ooh, another Crocs fan.. I’m totally addicted too. But my poison is the Sassaris ‘cos they give me lift 🙂 I’ve also got Cleo, Patra, Celeste and Athens for ultra rough wear. The Santa Cruzs are cuuuuute!

    • beverly posted on December 28, 2008 at 12:14 am

      Ohhhh those look good, cos I like the extra height 😉 Are they comfy though? I’m always scared the rubber style crocs give me blisters!

        Oh they are AMAZINGLY comfy…. that’s why I can wear them practically throughout the whole day, carrying my 10kg daughter up and down 3 flights of steps, doing the kindy runs etc.. 🙂 Never had any blisters with any of my Crocs since day 1 and I’m really prone to blisters! Heck to what everyone says about Crocs being ugly… as long as you don’t wear the ones that look like Barney’s feet… hehe 🙂

    Wow – crocs that don’t look like crocs! 😛

    I’m not a fan of crocs but those shoes actually look quite nice. I just wanted to drop around and say happy new year – hope you had some good food and looking forward to hearing about it (and seeing pictures of course!) 😀
