Crocs Classic Clog Review: a 12-month Experience

Published July 11, 2020 | by

If you try an ordinary sandal and quickly shift to wearing a Crocs Classic Clog, you will long for this light shoe to be always on your feet each time you walk or play your favorite water sport. This classic clog is as supportive as it is comfortable, even in wet conditions and oily decks.

With its boating shoe pedigree, the Crocs Classic is highly durable, repels water, and provides a sure grip on a wet surface. Aside from giving you a stable ride, its clog design will protect your toes from sharp objects on the ground.

The manufacturer of Crocs footwear believes that comfort is the key to happiness. It is committed to discovering new comfort technologies and developing revolutionary materials that will make its shoes lighter, softer, and more flexible, making them the most delightfully comfortable shoes in the world. So far, Crocs have already produced Level 3 comfort in their shoes.

This company uses an EVA Injection Molded Foam (called Croslite) as its main material for all its shoes. The Croslite is 100% waterproof, safe, soft, and easy to clean. And it forms itself to your feet and offers true medical benefits.

Key features

  • Weight: 7 oz
  • Crocs Comfort Level 1 features an original Croslite foam cushion that feels soft with all-day comfort.
  • Thermoplastic (EVA) upper
  • Removable back strap
  • Built-in arch support and a back strap for added stability
  • Ventilation system that allows air and water to pass through multiple ports inside the shoe.

The Crocs Classic works with the following foot conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Bunions
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Hammertoes
  • Diabetic Foot

Note: If you want to have this clog, make sure the contours of the footbed correspond to your heel and arch. And the shoe should fit very loosely.

A 12-month Experience with Crocs Classic Clog

We spent many hours using the Crocs Classic in shopping malls, around town, in water sports, hiking, and walking around the gym and house as post-workout footwear. This shoe is comfortable right out of the box. And after 12 months of using it, we are ready to give feedback on what to expect with Crocs Classic.

We have noticed that even if the heel and arch aren’t perfectly placed on the contours of the footbed, the soft EVA foam will still give a comfortable cushion and support. It will give you confidence during any active outdoor activity, knowing that even if your foot moves inside the shoe, you will still have an assured step.

This clog is lightweight, easy to clean, very durable, gives comfort and long-lasting support, and protects your toes from protruding objects on the ground. It even keeps your foot cool and dry during hot weather. Although when the outsole starts to wear, the shoe loses some of its no-skid features. So you have to be extra careful on slippery surfaces once the outsole starts to wear.

Who Should Wear Crocs Classic Clog?

The Crocs Classic will be perfect for those with mild overpronation, neutral pronation, and supination (and high arches) support types. It is lightweight and flexible enough to support your foot completely. But the Crocs Classic is only comfort Level 1, and Crocs has up to Level 3 in terms of comfort.

Most helpful consumer review:

I love these shoes. They are just wonderful. I have arthritis. I have diabetic neuropathy, and they help so much.

These shoes are so comfortable; I can’t believe how happy my feet feel when I wear them. They even accommodated my bunion, and I can wear them barefoot or with heavy socks.

I suffer from plantar fasciitis and also have wide feet. The crocs are the most comfortable shoe that I have been able to find.

Great shoes, great for diabetic feet. I wear them all the time—plenty of toe room.

Who Should Not Buy the Crocs Classic Clog?

If you have foot issues because of overpronation and flat feet, you won’t find this shoe very supportive in the arch. The Crocs Clog has moderate arch support, which is not ideal for overpronation and those with fallen arches. If you wear it and you have this postural deformity, you will struggle with stability and balance. However, most overpronators don’t have foot issues. So if you are one of those who get along well with overpronation, you might find this clog comfortable and supportive.

Final Thoughts

The Crocs Clog is not only ideal for water-sport enthusiasts and hikers, but it is also a go-to shoe for medical professionals, workers, and even those who are fashion consumers. Some podiatrists recognize this clog as having true medical benefits. So if you are looking for a soft, lightweight, flexible, and supportive light shoe, you can never go wrong with this one.
