I just love Crocs shoes! I learned the value of comfortable shoes from my last job in a hospital which had me standing on my feet for hours at a time. Ever since then my criteria for buying shoes has always been about comfort first and style came in a close 2nd. Fortunately with Crocs I don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort.
The shoe brand has come a long way in recent years. Once known only for their clunky yet comfortable style they now offer a variety of stylish and attractive shoes to chose from.
I now own four pairs of Crocs (as seen above) and I can honestly say I rotate and wear them on a daily basis. I can walk for hours in any of the pair I own. I love their versatile style and my feet are truly grateful for the rubber cushioned comfort they provide.
Also as an added bonus I can throw them into the washing machine when ever they get dirty. Today however I’m going to talk about how to stretch or shrink Crocs for a better fit.
Above is the first pair of Crocs I bought over 2 years ago at TJ Maxx for $9.99. The retail price for the Kadee style is around $30. I usually wear between a size 5 to a 6 depending on the shoe brand and the pair above were a bit snug on me at a size 4 but I couldn’t resist the bargain. They ended up rubbing and scraping my ankles so I winded up not wearing them for awhile.
I looked online for a solution and was surprised to to learn that I could actually stretch or shrink Crocs by putting them in the dryer.
So this is what worked for me: I put them in the dryer with towels to help diffuse the heat evenly. I recommend leaving them in for about 3 minutes at a time and to keep checking.
If they are still tight after taking off your socks then put them back in the dryer for another 3 minutes and repeat stretching them out. Also if they get too loose throw them back and they will shrink back to size.
This process really worked out for me and I was very happy with the results. I was able to stretch out the shoes for a more comfortable fit. If anyone out there has done this before please comment and let me know your results.
