Brand FAQs 

#1 Are Crocs true to size? 

Yes, Crocs are generally true to size. The brand recommends ordering your regular shoe size for the best fit. However, some users report that they may run slightly large, so you may want to consider ordering a half-size down if you prefer a snugger fit. 

#2 How to clean Crocs? 

To clean your Crocs, there is a simple process. Here’s the step-by-step process below: 

  1. Wipe down the shoes with a damp cloth or sponge using mild soap and water. 
  2. Avoid putting them in the washing machine, as this can damage the material. 
  3. For a deeper clean, you can use a soft-bristled brush and a solution of warm water and mild detergent. 
  4. Rinse them thoroughly and allow them to air dry completely before wearing. 

#3 Are Crocs comfortable? 

Yes, Crocs are renowned for their exceptional comfort. The brand's proprietary Croslite foam material provides a soft, cushioned footbed that moulds to the shape of your feet, offering all-day support and relief. Many users report that they are among the most comfortable shoes they've ever worn. 

#4 Are Crocs good for your feet? 

Crocs can be a good choice for foot health, as they provide several benefits: 

  • The roomy toe box allows for natural foot movement and prevents cramping. 
  • The lightweight and flexible design reduces strain on the feet, ankles, and legs. 
  • The non-slip soles offer good traction, reducing the risk of falls and injuries. 
  • The ventilated design helps keep feet cool and dry, preventing moisture buildup. 


#5 Can you drive in Crocs? 

While Crocs are generally comfortable and easy to wear, it's not recommended to drive while wearing them. The open-toe design and lack of a secure fit can make it difficult to operate the pedals safely. For driving, it's best to choose a more secure and stable shoe option. 

#6 Do Crocs stretch? 

Crocs are made from a flexible, lightweight material that can slightly stretch and conform to the shape of your feet over time. However, they are not designed to stretch significantly. If you find they're feeling too tight, it's best to size up rather than relying on the material to stretch. 


#7 How to put Jibbitz on Crocs? 

Attaching Jibbitz charms to your Crocs is a simple process: 

  1. Locate the holes on the top of your shoes where the Jibbitz will be placed. 
  2. Gently push the Jibbitz charm into the hole until it clicks into place. 
  3. Ensure the Jibbitz is securely attached and won't easily fall out. 
  4. Repeat the process to add as many Jibbitz as desired to personalise them. 

#8 Are Crocs vegan? 

Yes, Crocs are considered a vegan-friendly brand. The company's signature Croslite material, which is used in the construction of their shoes, is a synthetic, non-animal-derived material. Additionally, the brand do not use any leather or other animal-based components in their products, making them a suitable choice for vegans and those seeking cruelty-free footwear options.
