Perhaps this topic is more NAF than cookware, but "c'est la viande".
Since there's always a dearth of choice in shoes in my size, and my Crocs (style: "relief") are over a decade old, I ordered several pairs direct from the Crocs website. I intend to keep only the ones that are the most comfortable.
Crocs has branched out into boots, sandals, and other styles but I am talking about those in the original design, or close to it: the slip-in clog type with a strap that can be either on top of the vamp, or behind the heel. I noticed that they now have several versions of this style that are supposedly designed for cooks. The one named for Mario Batali comes, fortunately, in black as well as the notorious orange. It's currently on sale so the black is one of the pairs I ordered.
At least one of these kitchen Crocs apparently has a firmer toe box and different ventilation. Reviews on just about every style tend to be mixed. I am merely a home cook, and wear Crocs as my default shoe, since they are so comfortable and easy to get on and off. I need a wider shoe and Crocs are wide, though they don't come in a choice of widths.
Croco-philes, do you have preferred styles and do you think the ones made for kitchen use are better than standard style?
