First, let me offer the following personal research before I rave about the cros cayman/classic. In my opinion Amazon.com is the best place to shop and to read reviews prior to purchasing, particularly when looking for the 'cons' in a particular product. I have found that my negative feedback about a particular style croc did not get published on the croc website, and I think that is grossly unfair to the consumer. That implies to me that they are more interested in selling their product than listening to consumer complaints and thus modifying or correcting/improving their product. What you may or may not know is that crocs are manufactured in several different countries including Italy, Mexico, Canada, and here in the US, and that sizes and material used between styles vary greatly.I have done a great deal of research about children's footwear, and unanimously pediatricians say "barefoot is best" because the bones in children's feet are soft and growing until they are 13, if I remember correctly. However,footwear is necessary to protect feet from the elements or from injury. When shopping for crocs or any other shoe for our granddaughter, the very first thing I do is to pick up the shoe and try to flex the sole. If it is 'stiff as a board' it will impact the way your child walks. I have personally tested this with our granddaughter, and this is what I found: With a soft, flexible sole she can walk normally in a striding motion, exercising the foot and leg, which is critical to muscle development in the foot and leg. With a hard, inflexible sole, she didn't walk normally--rather she picked up her feet and set them down in a 'clomping' gait. Not good. You won't go wrong with the crocs Cayman/Classic, imo. I purchased these crocs classics in pearl white for our 2 year old granddaughter, and she has worn these for everyday almost exclusively this summer--they are that good. What I love about the Crocs Cayman Classic is the soft, flexible material used, thus making it a soft, flexible shoe--particularly the sole--perfect for growing feet. Equally important are all the vents around the perimiter of the shoe, allowing adequate ventilation which is important in a shoe made of manmade materials. This shoe is easy to clean and still looks almost brand new. This particular croc 'runs large'. Our granddaughter wears an 8/9 in this style, but an 8/9 in a couple of the other styles was smaller. There are two other styles in crocs that you couldn't give me because of the material used, the inflexibility, and the lack of ventilation. I won't mention those here because I am critiquing the cayman classic. I contacted crocs to express my concern about the differences in material used and was told that the best solution was to visit a store that sells crocs and to personally examine them. That is my advice to you. If you aren't in proximity to anyone who sells crocs, I would order the crocs Cayman/Classic. I'm even ordering this style for winter wear. For any other croc style, I would order from a vendor who accepts returns.
UPDATE: JANUARY 31, 2013: Still buying these crocs, and our granddaughter is approaching the 12/13 size. I still give this croc rave reviews.

I've purchased many pairs of Crocs over the years but the quality has severely diminished over the past few years. I'm not sure exactly what has changed in the manufacturing but a pair of crocs used to last my daughter a couple of years. At the end of May, the back strap broke on a pair so I bought a new pair through Amazon. She wore them TWICE when one of the straps broke off the back. We decided to do "surgery" and took a back strap off an old pair to replace the broken one. I wish we had simply returned them at the time but she liked them so we didn't. Now, the other strap has broken off the back. Please note that the strap off of the older pair is still intact and going strong. You can actually FEEL the difference in thickness between the old and new. It's really sad because my daughter and most of her friends love them but I will not spend $32 on a pair of shoes that breaks immediately. And of course, I can't return to Amazon. Hopefully, I'm not the only one that's complained (I also complained directly to Crocs) and the quality will improve again but for now, we've purchased our last pair of crocs. And our last pair of shoes from Amazon, PERIOD, due to the return policy.

I recently bought two pairs of Croc through Amazon -- one for my teenage son (Adult Classic Clog -- made in Mexico) and another for my daughter (Kids Classic Clog, this product -- made in China). Both were manufactured by Crocs.

I'm not sure if Crocs has two separate facilities -- one in Mexico and one in China -- but the Croc manufactured in China reeks of a horrible chemical smell (a cross between formaldehyde and petroleum). The smell is horrible -- the kind of stench that causes headaches. Clearly, something is amiss in Croc's Chinese manufacturing facility.

Unfortunately, since Amazon doesn't note the country of origin on these products, the consumer is unable to tell until the product arrives. My daughter's previous pair of Kids Crocs (manufactured in Mexico) didn't smell.

This is at least the third set of Crocs purchased for my each of my sons. These are the first to cause blisters. The button on the inside of each foot has caused blisters on both feet of both of my sons. Upon examining the older Crocs (being replaced because they are worn out, not outgrown), the strap attachment button definitely sticks out farther on both new pairs versus the older pairs. This feature on the old pairs appears to be recessed, probably due to a tighter clamping force during manufacturing. This change in manufacturing appears to be the root cause of the blisters. This change appears on both the size C10/11 and C8/9 pairs that I purchased.

As long as the attachment button protrudes from the inside of the shoe, I cannot recommend purchasing this product.

Not sure what happened to the Crocs brand, however, the quality definitely is NOT the same as it has been. My 2 year old son wore this pair only a few times before the back strap broke off and it cannot be repaired.

Basically it was a waste of money and I will have to look for an alternative brand that hasn't allowed their quality of product to drop.

I bought these for my granddaughter, and she absolutely loves them. She wears them every day. They feel good on her feet, and have never left blisters on her feet.

As a (former) Birkenstock regular, I can honestly say Crocs are the easiest way to protect your feet and still be able to venture around almost anywhere. Unlike Birkenstocks, the crocs hand all terrain without worrying about any leather or cork breakdown. Not quite as supportive as Birks, they still provide comfort during long walks. While I wouldn't rock climb in them, they've been on my son's feet in the mud and rocks around the house and he's never had an issue. They clean up easily and I always buy them a little big as those darn feet grow too fast and they do feel a little smaller when they've been in the sun on a hot day (100 degrees+). Can't go wrong with crocs and I think everyone should own a pair.

When compared to other pairs of Crocs they seem to be a lower quality. They are soft almost flimsy. The edges are not clean, where the mold was cut out.

We purchased the Toddler/Little Kid Cayman as a replacement for my son's first pair, which he wore EVERY day for TWO years, winter and summer until his toes were beginning to poke holes out the front. The shoes are durable and versatile. They don't stink, can trek through puddles, and actually come off the playground without a load of sand(somehow the sand slips out and doesn't get trapped). They are also easy for a 3-year-old to put on all by himself. The only problem I've had with Crocs is that the tread is shallow and wears off over time, giving the shoes less traction than a sneaker.
