Did you know?

Okay, so I have to say that I LOVE my Crocs flip flops. I wear them all of the time and they are super comfortable. Well, one afternoon while playing outside with the kiddos and working in my garden I got my favorite shoes muddy. Well, of course the kids were some muddy too so I just kicked my shoes off at the back door so that I could deal with the rest of the mud. My plan was to let the mud dry so that I could knock it all off and go back to wearing them non-stop. So much for that idea.... Crocs SHRINK! Just look! My brown pair is the exact same size (or was) as the black pair! I was so mad! Guess Crocs should add a warning that they shrink when muddy and then heated by the Texas sun!

no kidding? wow. I didn't know that.

I have the mary jane style crocs and I adore them. Usually if they are muddy though, I rinse them with the hose and that is that. Luckily mine have never shrank, but I will be sure to not let them sit out...I love them too much!

I don't think it was the mud that did it. I left mine outside in the blazing Texas sun and they flipped inside out making them unwearable. They might be a size smaller too. I didn't check, just threw them away.

That just sucks! Can't say I'm a big fan of crocs though.

Wow - and they are not cheap either. They should come pre-shrunk! LOL. Sorry about that though.

I can't believe that! I would take them back and ask them to replace them, if it was me... :-p

So they're made from the same material as Shrinky Dinks! The Crocs secret is out. . . .

I washed my crocs in the dishwasher ('cause they say you can do that). The heated drying cycle made mine shrink too!!! Grrr.

Who knew? I am a fervent lover of Crocs and had no idea they would shrink. I love my mary janes and cleos. I haven't gotten any flip flops yet, but probably will next summer.
