I know this is a man's sandal but I am a woman with wide, flat feet and bunions. Traditional women's sandal sizes in B with ( including Crocs) are just too narrow. I tried a pair of these in men's size 7 ( I normally wear a woman's size 8) and they fit beautifully. Footbed is nice and wide , soles are cushiony and they look quite fashionable with pants. I can walk much longer distances in comfort with these shoes than almost any other. Liked them so much I bought another pair in black. I wish they made them in Navy as well as that is a good color for both men and women.

My first pair of Crocs. I had envisioned them as being cheap looking, a bit girly, and hard plastic uncomfortable. Nope, these are very nice looking, cushiony, like walking on dense, but very light memory foam. Extremely comfortable as everyone else says. Durability, I can't comment yet. Seems very true to size, using either barefoot or with socks, and about equally comfortable with or without socks. When lounging with feet kicked up, my heels are postioned at the very back of the heel cups, especially with socks, but still within the cups, and there is 3/4 to 1 inch space left forward at the toes. When standing/walking, they seem to self adjust (feet naturally slide forward somewhat, because of the cushioning, so that feet stay pretty much centered within the sole cups) for comfortable snugness across the top of foot/band at all times. I bought these to wear to work in the garden where they would often be hosed off, and in the river, lake, ramping boats etc., but now I cannot/will not use for that purpose, at least until they are well aged. They are too good for that. Very comfortable to stand in for long periods, but i still wouldn't want to use to walk very long distances, walk around alot, or run in, because these ARE slides, and there isn't much to hold them really snugly to your heel. Still MUCH better for walking than any other slides/flip flops that I have experienced. I think I might even get brave (clogs even sound girly) and try the yukon sport clog (with the heel strap) next, for extended walking excursions. When wearing shoes, after wearing several hours, I just can't wait to sit down and kick the shoes off. With these, my feet are actually even more comfortable with them left on.
If there are any cons, it would be
1)They could use more arch support for those of us with high arches. But then i'm never satisfied with that aspect of any shoes that aren't custom made. i think most of the population must be near flat footed. These do have some arch support, more than most, just not enough for me.
2) The Khaki/coffee color. The color of the Khaki body of shoe, is MANY shades darker than what is pictured online. I would call it MUCH closer to sage or even olive green, than khaki. Not really a con for me, as I still find very attractive and they should stay cleaner in appearance. Originally I was hesitant to purchase this color because of the very light color pictured online anyway.
3) Seems a bit on the expensive side for mostly manmade (in China) material, but if these last a cuupla years, they will def be worth it.
I can't take a star off when there are only 5 of them, but if there were 10 of them, I would rate a 9 out of 10, and if they actually hold well up to punishment, i would rate 9.5.

I ordered according to the reviews , which stated they ran about a size or more large. When I got them ,I found that they were small, so I found they run true to your shoe size. Hope this helps someone on their sizing to order.

This is my first pair of Crocs, having heard rave reviews from other owners. I was looking for a high level of comfort without the hideous appearance of many of Crocs' other products.
I generally wear a size 12-13, and reading other reviews about sizing, decided to go with the 12. I should have tried 11. These sandals are extremely wide and also have a little extra length. While walking, it is an effort to keep them on my feet. I understand that a slide-style sandal is not meant to be snug by any measure, but I should not have to worry about them flying off when I take a step forward, which I literally have to compensate for. Yes, I should have returned them in exchange for 11s, but I was too lazy given the $30 price when I purchased.
They are fairly comfortable (by no means outstanding) and the appearance is acceptable enough, so I give them an average rating, and advise anyone reading to go small on the sizing.

I am one who likes comfortable things and would rather wear sandals or slippers than tennis shoes.
I bought these for $45 at the mall and thought, "ok, crocs have a decent reputation, I'm going to give them a try."
I am a size 9.5 and these sandals only come in 9 or 10. I tried the 10s and they were too big. I tried the 9 and they were snug to say the least. I initially liked how light they were and I walked around a couple times and then purchased them.
Well, I wore them around the house (short distances) and no issues, again, 9 is tight and 10 is too big but I guess I settled.
The reason for 2 stars is that I went for a walk (approx 1 mile) and after half a mile or so, I could NOT stand them! The inside of my left foot by the bridge where the sandal covers the top of the foot started to rub, and rub and rub...
Surely enough, I was half a mile from my house and barefoot was not an option. I walked back home and I ended up rubbing part of my skin off and getting a blister. Maybe I should have gotten the bigger ones? NO. For $45 dollars you should be able to pick up something that fits your feet perfectly! I do not like these sandals and I will now only wear them at home since I already spent the money on them.
I don't recommend them unless they fit you well and they have your size. That's my personal experience.

I am someone who wears sandals all the time. In any weather.
I always struggled with finding a sandal that I could wear for an extended period of time without my ankles and knees getting sore.
I don't have that problem any more.
My mother has been preaching the Crocs gospel to me for a few years now. I finally broke down and bought these Yukon Slide sandals. I hate sandals with the piece between the toes and I always have trouble finding sandals that don't have that. So I was pretty excited when I found that Crocs made these.
From the beginning, I could tell that these were the most comfortable sandals that I had ever owned. I wore them everywhere I went. However, after about a week, I started to get sore from some places that the sandals rubbed on my feet. After about a week of that, they broke in and I have had nothing but comfort ever since. No more pain and no more putting on regular shoes for long walks.
I have had these Sandals for just about 2 months now and they are very well built. There is no sign of cracking on the plastic and the tread on the bottom seems to be staying on well. I am going to have to get another pair of these.
