I have always found salt water wrecks leather no matter what you try and proof it with.

I'd never heard of these Crocs before today and they sound superb!

I have been reading about crocs and it says that they must be worn loose, the heel strap looks a bit dodgy, however everyone that seems to have tried them think they're great.

Thanks Ian, we don't have a Trago around here I don't think. I'm a size 12, can just about live with an 11 though.

Andy,

I swear by crocs as well however get the original ones and not the cheap knock offs, they last a lot longer. They cost about 30 quid.

They are also antibacterial and you can stick them in the dishwasher, which is why nurses like em.

Just found and purchased 2 pairs of really comfy shoes. Velcro strap, front half made of wet suit material, heavy duty, no mark soles. They also look quite "dressy". If I get my feet wet they stay warm. Not cheap tho. about $70.00.
