You don't wear Crocs for a fashion statement. Well, maybe in some places, but not most places. They're the flip-flops of the regular shoe community. So easy to slip on. So easy to wash off. When my kids were little, they were "big kid" shoes they could put on themselves. Now all of my big kids have a pair right outside the backdoor. Slip them on to do everything year round (we live in Arizona.) So far nobody has ever accidentally stepped in dog poo, but it could happen and if it did - easily washable. They wore these shoes at at sleepaway camp for everything from showers to fishing to hiking. They're durable. Over the last 6+ years we've owned MANY pairs of Crocs brand originals and think they're all fantastic.
