Crocs. Bear with us, they're in fashion again - honest! These comfortable rubber slip-on shoes may divide opinion, but the odour-resistant, lightweight footwear is having a(nother) moment, not just with older wearers who love the foot-friendly, ventilated clogs, but also with youngsters enjoying platform Crocs, fur lined versions, flip flops and slides!

Selecting a good pair of Crocs may seem simple, but there are a few options you may not even know about yet. Fear not, this section is all about the different variations on the classic Croc, and the benefits of each. Before you know it, you'll have a collection to rival Imelda Marcos!
Most Crocs are unisex, and many reviews say they tend to be larger than the size advertised. But, of course, you'd expect nothing less from a shoe that's designed to be loose-fitting, breathable and easy on the feet.
You will find Crocs available in men's and women's styles and sizes. So if you favour a particularly masculine or traditionally feminine shoe shape, you'll find plenty of pairs you'll want to add to basket ASAP.
What we love most about Crocs, however, is the laid-back, ever so slightly hippie vibe that comes along with these comfy clogs. So choose a unisex version if you're tired of gender rules when it comes to shoe-shopping.
It's not just adults who can enjoy the comfort of a Crocs clog, children also benefit from these ventilated, sea-worthy shoes that are as appropriate for the paddling pool as they are for the park. They're light and cool, and sometimes sport fun and colourful designs such as cartoon characters or movie favourites.
While Crocs are billed as the ultimate in comfort, it's important to note that the spacious toe area only provides so much support. This part of the shoe is quite large, so it's natural to grip the soles with our toes to stop the clog falling off.
This means while Crocs are comfy for young'uns, they should be worn alongside more supportive shoes, to stop bad habits developing and avoid damage to growing spines.
While the famous clog shaped Croc is an excellent shoe for pebbled beaches, rock-pooling, sunny day gardening or a gentle dog walk, other designs are available for a variety of occasions. What's that? You didn't know Crocs had a whole host of other shapes? You've been missing out!
Sliders or slides - those simple, single-strap, slip-on sandals everyone is wearing lately - are wonderful for a lazy Sunday wander to the corner shop when only trackie bottoms and a giant bag of Wotsits will do. Crocs have their own stylish version, with ventilation holes you can plug with your favourite Jibbitz charms.
Crocs can also be bought in more structured designs, such as chunky wedge sandals, slimline slip-ons (not unlike a flip flop), hefty platform clogs and fur-lined versions ideal for chillier climes. Already envisaging a year-round Crocs collection for your wardrobe? You won't be the first.
If you are going for a less popular, more exciting style of Croc, take a moment to consider the practicality of the heel height. A chunky wedge or a retro-style platform heel may not be as risky to walk in as a stiletto heel, but if you do like to march along at a decent pace, a flat heel will be kinder to ankles and safer on an incline.
Of course, higher heeled or platformed Crocs are great for making a fashion statement or adding a little height. In fact, the more elegant shapes could even be worn to classy occasions, such as birthdays and even weddings, as a super comfortable alternative to more typical heels.
One of the most appealing aspects of the humble Croc is that many pairs have those convenient holes. Although originally added for ventilation, they can now be jazzed up with cute Jibbitz charms, designed by the Crocs brand to take their shoes to new levels of fun and self-expression.
Choose a pair of Crocs in a colourway that will work best with the shapes and styles of charm you like best, or simply find one which matches your personal style and favourite wardrobe staples. We love the fact that Crocs come in a rainbow of colours, including bold brights as well as neutrals like black, white, navy and grey.

These are the ultimate in comfort and temperature control, making them perfect for hot summer days when a breeze is key to preventing sweaty feet. Choose from more than twenty colours and designs and team with casual shorts or a cute floral dress, depending on the day.
These unisex sandals are ideal for both men and women, plus there's an identical option in a broad range of children's sizes, so the whole household can enjoy a pair in their favourite shade. The minimal flat sole makes them easy to walk in, while the generous toe space helps you avoid that crushed-in feeling and allows enough room to chuck on some socks come autumn and winter!
Flower Power never goes out of style. It's not so much the print that gives these clogs their fashion forward status, but rather the chunky platform heel. They're also available in soft yellow, dusky pink, black, white and psychedelic marble swirls!
The platform shape just about edges these Crocs away from their (undeserved) frumpy image, and into more modish territory, reminiscent of highly fashionable Swedish clogs or the designer slip-ons that are bang on trend these days. They're officially aimed at women, although the wide fit means men can enjoy the whimsy of these cool kicks in larger sizes too.
We think these are the best kids' crocs as they're lightning quick to put on, even when the wearer is reluctant. Add to that the fact they're super secure on fast-running feet, boast a feather-light weight and you can add socks whilst still keeping little feet fresh when the temperature drops... what more could a parent ask for?
The sole of these shoes is chunky enough to protect precious growing feet from sharp stones at the beach, while the Velcro fastening ensures your child's foot is held in tightly - no more missing shoes after the chair-o-planes. Plus, the colour range is brilliant!
Ahhhh! That's the stuff. If you thought classic Crocs were comfy, get ready to plunge your tired trotters into these sumptuous fur-lined slip-ons! We love the fact they're unisex and sized accordingly, though the extra layer of fur provides good support for toes compared to other pairs.
There's a veritable kaleidoscope of colours to choose from in this soft, cosy range to carry you from scorching summer into the milder days of autumn. Reviewers describe them as the ideal warm, snuggly slippers you can also wear outside, and who doesn't love having two-shoes-in-one?
If you're looking for a new (or your very first) pair of sliders, this lemon yellow pair with a slice of white around the sole might just be the holy grail. The three perfectly placed ventilation holes are just crying out to be decorated with whimsical Jibbitz charms, such as a flower or your spirit emoji.
The wide strap holds tightly onto feet while letting them breathe, so you can slip these on as you walk from changing room to pool, or down from your towel to the edge of the waves. If yellow's not your thing, you can choose from a decent range of shades, whether you're matching them with sportswear or a bright block colour bikini.
Here is another gorgeous shoe, proving that Crocs are so much more than just clogs! Even though the wedge is high, it's curved to fit the arch of your foot, making them super comfy even if you've got a fair distance to walk or plans to dance.
These pretty wedge-heel sandals are available in classic black, tan and chirpy tomato red, among other fun shades and patterns. The sling back straps are adjustable to four different lengths, and, while leather sandals and cheaper versions of this same shape can rub and blister skin, the trademark silicone used in Crocs is kind to skin and convenient to wear in hot sun or pesky rain.
Profess your love of Crocs to the world with these logo-emblazoned clogs with the famous adjustable heel strap. While the standard Croc has that shiny crocodile pin, these ones also have the brand name carved out of the body of the shoe, ensuring no one is mistaken about your loyalties!
The other benefit of these cut-out sandals, is the fact they are more cooling and have better ventilated than standard Crocs, allowing a gentle breeze to pass through the shoe as well as down through the top. The Baya Crocs are all the rage right now, so don't hesitate!
Your kids are going to love these classic clogs. Not only are they spacious and comfy enough for growing toes, but come covered in cool artwork celebrating their favourite animated stars. With choices ranging from Lightning McQueen to Buzz Lightyear and the gang from Paw Patrol, they'll be the talk of the playground!
As with all Crocs clogs, these feature a heel strap that can be adjusted to hold the foot in place, or moved to convert the shoe to a slip-on. The extra-grip waterproof rubber soles are just right for running, jumping, kicking and splashing, so pack these for holidays and beach days to keep young feet protected.
If you had any doubt that Crocs could be edgy, these rave-ready space age platform clogs will surely put that thought to an end. No 90s look is complete without a chunky platform heel, but these grungy clogs are way more comfy than most similar options, trust us!
The chic white pair, or the statement black, would look just as amazing with impossibly baggy combat trousers as they would with a low-cut midi skirt straight out of 1998. Just note that these aren't advisable for those who favour a high-speed power-walk from A to B, or who may be prone to a mild ankle-twist risk on the dance floor, so take care!
If you're not well versed in the world of Crocs, you'd be forgiven for thinking they only exist in the classic clog shape, but these gorgeous streamlined sandals are one of a multitude of variations available. The water-resistant, rubberised tread provides comfort, while the stylish criss-cross straps offer simple elegance.
These shoes are aimed at women and are only available in sizes 2 to 9, so don't boast the same universality of some of Crocs' unisex options. They are also perhaps the least Croc-ish of our choices, so may not appeal to those seeking the classic clog.
Treating your feet kindly is one of the best things you can do for your body - not just your feet either, but your posture, spine and neck too! Have a look at the links below for more ways to keep your trotters comfortable and secure, whether hard at work or lazing round the house.
Wasn't it Coco Chanel who once said: 'Before you leave the house, look in the mirror, then put on a pair of crocs'...? Maybe we're getting that wrong, but now you've read this article, you're well equipped to invest in a comfy shoe that is kind to feet and just right for gardening, pottering or chilling at home!
