Since then, Crocs styles have become more numerous and stylish. My family received 5 pairs of Crocs (value $175) from the very generous @GeorgeGSmithJr to take for test drives. So here's the scoop.
Tessa tried the Gabby ($25). She loves the pink-ness (although they come in other colors) and the decorative butterfly. She finds them comfortable to wear and durable enough for riding her bike or scooter.
Reed gave the Electro ($30) and Trailbreak ($40) a whirl. He liked them both equally. I liked the rugged look of the Trailbreak. Both were terrific at keeping the boy-feet smell at bay (not that I sniffed too closely).
As for me, I am SWOONing over my new favorite shoes, the Malindi ($30) in a leopard print. They are as easy to slip on as flip-flops are, they can be both casual and dressy, and they are sooooo comfortable. I love the way they look, with peekaboo toe-cleavage.
The only non-rave in the bunch is for the Cabana ($46 -- currently BOGO). It's stylish, this black flip-flop wedge with a 3 inch heel and magenta detailing. But the thong that goes from the toe to the sides of the foot has the seam on the underside. This means chafing. Which meant, for me, blisters. I can wear these only if I'm not going to be walking around much.
Overall, a great haul.
Check out other styles for yourself. My friend, JoAnn, wore the 3-inch Cyprus ($50) to Cirque du Soleil, and was the envy of the other Mile High Mamas.
And I'm drooling over the Crema ($100), which would put me over the 6-foot mark.
