kyleaz, I had quite forgotten about the dangers of wearing them, I found if the heel strap was not worn they were prone to slipping forward leading to the inevitable and painful stubbing your big toes, particularly on the right foot.

I have a pair of Croc flip flops--best dang flip flops I ever bought. They're comfy, soft and durable, they dry fast, don't get nicked or fall apart, and they weigh nothing so they pack great. The big Croc store here even carries high heels now--and a few women at work swear by them. The original ugly Crocs are evolving!

Crocs second generation has "mary-jane" style, in black and brown. Still comfortable, but decent enough to be worn to a restaurant.

I saw them advertised at one of our local sportswear shops but I keep forgetting to go check them out, so thanks for the reminder.

In the USA and Canada maybe, but not in Europe. (Unless by restaurant you mean the local soup kitchen.)

Following my first response...My mum bought me some, not proper crocs, but similar things, for use as shower shoes...I am ashamed.... lol!

Well, I bought the Mary Jane style ones in black. They don't come in half sizes here, so I went half a size up and the straps were too loose and they flopped around when walking. The lady in the shop said they're meant to be a big fit, but they weren't right so I've order half a size down. They're going to be only a just right fit but I'm hoping they'll stretch a little.

Now I'm not particularly fashionable, but this style do look as thought they'd be okay to eat out in - not anywhere fancy, but in more casual eating places I think they'd be okay.

They've actually got some nice styles out now.

When I read the last post that included the words nice styles and croc I had to check out the website, they Do!

The look nothing like the but ugly plastic croc that are lurking at the back of my wardrobe.

To keep going in the more positive vein 'tway' has shifted us to: they are cute on kids.
