First, the size. I read all the reviews, and knew that they ran small; I'm a 9.5 wide and so I ordered an 11 (largest available). The problem comes from the basic croc shape. With classic crocs, you can slide your foot in horizontally, but with boots, you need to point your foot and wedge it forward while you place your heel. The croc upper doesn't allow any stretch for that maneuver. Once my foot is properly in the shoe, they fit ok--but man they are hard to get on and off. The soft lining tends to roll under the seam as your slide you foot in, making the opening even tighter, and if you manage to get your foot in while this is happening, and take a few steps, it's going to be painful.
Now, once you have them on properly, you go out in the snow. Only a few inches? Great, these are warm and have good traction, you won't have a problem. Is the snow deep enough to cover your foot? You might find after a few minutes that the softer area near the heel is not actually water proof. Actually, it won't even take a few minutes, the second I had snow touching any of the non-rubbery parts of these boots, my feet were instantly cold and wet. Another reviewer commented on this, but she used the word "leak", so I assumed there had been a hole or similar defect. I examined my boots closely, there is no hole, no tear, no gap in the seaming. The cloth just soaked up the moisture and transfered it directly to my socks.
My last complaint is a small one, and in light of the other two I hesitate to even mention it. The top part of the boot only goes about 6 inches up my leg, maybe a third of the way to my knee. From the picture I imagined it would go at least half way, but given that it isn't water resistant, I suppose that wouldn't help anyway.
So, even though I should have known better because other reviewers said the same things I'm saying now, I'm giving two stars only because my socks are wet and that makes me grumpy.
After my last pair of leather boots 'died' on me one rainy wintery night, leaving me with soaked, cold feet, I shopped around and decided on a pair of Crocs boots for the following reasons: Croc seems completely water-proof.
I have used this pair for 3 years now, and I did not have to take particular care of them in between vacations or business trips (unlike leather). They are indeed 100% water-proof, and the top part of the boots actually provide enough warmth for me. I have walked on snow, and in rain. I am just eternally grateful for this pair of boots that is not excessively expensive, and yet serves all the purposes that I need. Of course, they are not the prettiest, but with the round spacious boot-fronts, my toes are not squashed together (unlike boots with tapered fronts) and I have plenty of room to wriggle around, even with thick socks.
The inside sole is already coming apart and it's actually pretty painful. It's really disappointing because I had been raving about them recently because I was surprised how warm they keep my feet, it's unbeatable!
But I'm already going to have to replace them after such little wear since I didn't wear them the 10 times in the 30 day window.
