My entire adult life, I have vowed NEVER to wear a pair of Crocs.
The crayon-box palette of colours and the shapeless ‘design’ of the infamous clog style was enough to put me off. Not even claims of how incredibly comfy they are was enough to convince me.
Until I discovered a love of camping and the Crocs beach line boat shoe!
As newcomers to the camping scene, I’ve learned there are a few essentials needed when packing. One being good footwear. Whilst I’m all in favour of packing an entire wardrobe with multiple shoe choices, this is not practical – nor is there space in our car for another darn thing!
When it comes to camping footwear, you will need:
- shoes you can slip on and off quickly when going in/out of your tent. You don’t want to be making the inside all wet and dirty.
- shoes that are lightweight and comfy when putting up / taking down the tent, exploring the campsite or making that 2am dash to the bathroom!
- shoes that are waterproof against damp early-morning grass
It’s so much more convenient if you can find one pair that does it all. And look good. Just because I am camping, it doesn’t mean I want to look like I live in a field
I know, they don’t even look like Crocs, right?!
Unlike regular Crocs, these are far more of a fitted style. And yes, they are super-comfy just as everyone always says!
The pair I chose are in the espresso / stucco colourway, but if you truly are a devoted Crocs fan, you’ll be pleased to know that they are also available in a rainbow of other colours.
Whilst I don’t think I will be wearing these outside of my camping trips, I am very pleased with them. And at £39.99, they didn’t break the bank either.
What do you think of them?
