DANGEROUS SLIP HAZARD avoid avoid avoid. JUNK
on May 23, 2013
I have never purchase a piece of footwear in my entire life that disappointed and injured me as much as the offroad croc. The croc company should be class action sued for presenting this ridiculous piece of chinese plastic garbage as something that you should wear in an offroad condition. They are SLIPPERY and offer NO arch support NO ankle support NO protection for your foot and worse, cause dangerous situations where being barefoot would have been safer.
Face it people, if you are safer barefoot that is your CLUE that Offroad Crocs are another marketing scam brought to you by an irresponsible corporation and supported by an ignorant public. I have shed my ignorance through experience and here is your opportunity to profit from my injuries: Day one you will first be fooled by how cush the sole of the croc is, this will not last the sole cushioning is CHEAP JUNK and soon becomes worthless and worn thin. Notice that the bottom of the croc is lined with little studs of rubber in an attempt to create traction on the foot inside the "shoe" using a rubber that is as slippery as an eel. The net result is increased wear and tear on the sole of your foot as the rubber abrades against the sole of the foot in normal use. The other part of the design that wears on your foot is the side of the croc (pronounced crap) where the plastic button holds the failure of an ankle strap to the rest of the "shoe". This button will rub a nice wound into the side of your foot right in line with the front of your ankle, near the top of the instep. If you survive the sanding of the bottom of your foot with the sandpaper sole and the abrasion of the side of your foot with the buttons you will have successfully broken in these crocs. I was rubbed raw until I finally put antibiotic on the button itself to create a sterile lubricant and reduce the abrasion from the rubbing.
After a week or two of use you will notice the sole on the bottom of the crocs is nearly worn off because it is such cheap garbage rubber. It as at this point that the crocs become incredibly dangerous because they are now much more dangerous than walking barefoot, the ultimate failure of any footwear.. becoming a device of injury instead of protection.
CROCS cheap garbage slippery rubber that will break your neck, your foot or both in wet conditions. AVOID AVOID AVOID.
Pay 2 to 3 times what you pay for junky crocs and get something GOOD that protects you instead of rips you off and injures you. I would pay money to be able to sit down with whoever designed the offroad croc and punch them as hard as I can in the mouth. Unlike crocs, it would be a good use of money.
I am replacing these faiures with something more deserving of an offroad use
