CROCS!

Recommended Posts

Rost

No doubt they are the ugliest shoe ever to hit the market! However, I just bought a pair...and can honestly say they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned!

They seem like the perfect fishing shoe to me. Easy on, easy off and they won't get "musty" like my old leather sandles after jumping in the water. At first, I wondered about this idea, but then I noticed In-Fisherman Editor Doug Stange wearing them while on the water. So, if he can pull it off, so can I.

Anyone else a Croc fan? (Don't be afraid!!! Stand up and admit it!!)

I've never heard of Crocs until I read your post. I went to crocs.com and they have several different types. My old leather sandals have run their course and I was going to buy a new pair this year, so I'm interested in hearing the opinion of what everyone thinks of their crocs and what type of croc they have.

Humm. It's going on the list. I wear a lot of sandles, but sometimes they slip on and off too easily. Crocks it is...

I always hated to wear my leather sandles in the lake. They'd always come out soggy, water logged, and slipped off to easily. However, last year I finally learned my lesson. Due to very low water levels on the lake I was fishing, my truck got stuck in the sand while I was trying to pull my boat out. So (without thinking confused.gif)I jumped into the water (barefoot) to push my boat off the trailer. Well, next thing I knew my foot was gashed wide open and I was bleeding like a stuck hog. So, there I was, standing on the dock bleeding with my truck, boat, and trailer stuck in the sand... Fortunately, there was a few other people there willing to help me out.

I'll only make that stupid mistake once.

I have yet to purchase a pair but I will soon......My brother in law and his friends in the neiborhood all wear them and they all just love'em and talk them up!! The reason why I want them is for the fact of getting wet and they are very comfortable!!

If anyone is looking for a more "manly" tongue.gif sandal, look at Keen's Newport model. These shoes really excel when wading in rocky rivers, since they have a protected toe. granted, the Crocs are about a third of the price.

My wife is looking for a white pair to wear for Nursing/work.

Yeah, I love my Keens! They rock. They are unbelievably comfortable. Spendy, though.

I like mine, good for the mud, good on a boat, good when standing up all day barbequing. The only color to get though is bright orange, just like Mario Batali.

For those experienced Croc users, do they breathe at all? The plastic-style material seems like it would cause pools of sweat to form.

The other issue is ugly tan lines to go with ugly shoes laugh.gif

Obviously you guys have never owned a pair of Chaco's. They are by far my favorite sandals. Originally they were made for River fishing in Colorado. Now they still carry the ones with a river sole to grip wet rocks. They make them with all kinds of soles now.

I would highly recommend them if your an active person outdoors. smile.gif

I bought a pair of Crocs when they first surfaced in CO about 5 years ago. They are very comfortable and they do breathe supprisingly well (lots of holes in them). The only drawback I found was that they fell off when I was kayaking (i tend to swim a lot in class-3 and they were always popping off). To solve this I went for Tevas. They do NOT come off in mud, water, rocks anything and they are very comfortable.

I have both crocs and keens and I wear my crocs excessively more than the keens. The keens are great boundary waters shoes.

I showed my wife a picture of crocs in a Cabella's ad yesterday. She quickly informed me that I'm never going to buy one of those ugly things....

Shotgun shells, bait, and beverages. That's pretty much all I buy.

Shoes do not fit into any of those catagories. grin.gif

I don't own a Croc but I work in a hospital, and I can say 85% of the people that work on the floor wear crocs. Everyone says there's nothing better. Beats me. I'm stuck w/ the leather dress shoes.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
