Crocs have become incredibly popular since the spring of 2019. They appeared in the designer collections of Balenciaga, Maison Margiela, Christopher Kane, Dior and others. And apparently this trend will not leave the podium for several more seasons. Today, some celebrity personalities (Whoopi Goldberg, Helen Mirren, Shia LaBeouf) and even royalty (Kate Middleton) are already flaunting in such clogs.
What are these shoes and what is the secret of their popularity?
Crocs are light, durable and non-slip rubber shoes with round holes, shaped like clogs. For the manufacture of clogs, a material such as cross light is used – a natural foamed resin. This model got its name from the name of the manufacturer. Crocs was founded in 2002 as a manufacturer of a new kind of lightweight, durable and non-slip footwear made from polymeric materials.
Initially, the brand positioned itself as the creator of unique sailing shoes that do not slip on wet decks and leave no marks. At that time, the creators did not yet suspect that their invention would be worn not only by yachtsmen, but by all people at home, in the country, on the street, at work. Due to the fact that designers and couturiers picked up this idea, began to style crocs in their own way and bring them to world catwalks, today fashionistas in all corners of the planet dream of buying them. The brand name Crocs was given in honor of the first shoe model that resembles a crocodile in appearance.
Why are they good?
Original Crocs have the following advantages:
- Light and soft
- Non-slip sole
- Made of durable polymer
- Feet do not sweat in them, as they have through holes
- Do not rub, as they take the shape of the foot
- Crosslight has an antibacterial effect
- Thanks to the elasticity of the material, the legs do not get tired in them
- Thanks to the back strap, they securely fix the foot.
To find your size, it is recommended to be guided by the manufacturer’s size chart posted on the official website.
Also note that the manufacturer has provided 3 shoe standards for different types of foot fullness:
- Standard (fitting)
- Spacious (there is a margin in the area of \u200b\u200bthe fingers)
When choosing rubber clogs, consider your style and environment.
Most organically, crocs fit into the images of the following stylistic trends:

What to wear?
Since Crocs clogs look rather bulky, it is important to learn how to combine them correctly with other wardrobe items so that the silhouette looks balanced and proportional. Next, we will consider the most successful sets in which crocs in women’s outfit look quite harmonious and appropriate.
With shorts: Prefer denim and simple everyday models with an elastic band or a yoke.
With a denim miniskirt: This option is best for girls with slender legs.
With jeans: Combined with jeans, a denim jacket and a white shirt, you get a comfortable casual look. Clogs of a neutral color look quite appropriate and do not draw attention to themselves.
With a dress: Crocs look best with loose-fitting midi dresses. Against this background, the clogs do not look too massive. Choose shoes in basic colors or neutral nude. From mini-dresses, give preference to sports models: knitted, hoodie, sweatshirt.
With a midi skirt: Choose simple straight cuts or slightly flared cuts.
With sports pants: Crocs fit perfectly into a relaxed sporty look.
