Hi everyone! This will be my first time going to Bonnaroo and I'm extremely excited! Does anyone know of a store/ online site that sells those imitation crocs? I saw someone wearing them the other day, and I assume they're cheaper...I just don't want to spend thirty bucks on something I don't find all that nice, but from what i've read here, they're the choice Bonnaroo shoe for a bunch of reasons. I'm usually a flip-flop girl, but I don't want to get stuck in the mud and fall on my butt! So if anyone has these fake crocs and can tell me where they found them, it would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance, and if people are half as nice actually at Bonnaroo as they are here on the message boards, it looks like i'm in for a really good time!
I think the reasoning behind getting the real thing has to do with the plastic that is used to make the shoes - in "real" crocs - your feet will not slip from accumulated sweat - the fake ones do not absorb the damp and wet the same way

I also think those imitation Crocs would be useless in mud. Most of the ones I've seen don't have the movable strap. They make it look like there's a strap, but it's actually connected to the shoe. So, when the mud comes, there is no way to move the strap to the back of your ankle which I think would prevent the shoes from staying on your feet in the mud.

real crocs dont fit me (feet are too narrow, though I've discovered the mary jane ones work) but sketcher makes a pretty decent virsion, made of the same plasticy foamy stuff with a strap that comes across the top of the foot, so I'll be rocking those as well as my mary jane crocs
I actually bought a pair of birkenstock made crock ripoffs. I have always loved my birks, and i found these clogs at the local gabriel bros. (i.e. cheap).
While they're comfortable, there's ZERO ventilation. So the shoes make suction noises, and if you wear socks, you get sweaty feet. So even a reputable brand can not simply make something "like" crocs. then you just get plastic shoes that make farty noises.
the crocs website has all the styles and colors you could possibly need... I just hope they don't feel awfully sweatty in that heat! and sometimes little grains of dirt inside my Crocs drive me nutty.. especially when my senses are peaked!!!
The only issue I have had with crocs (and the reason I don't own a pair) is that I have big feet and I really neet a 1/2 size - if I go to a 10, I feel cramped but if I get an 11, I feel like I am gonna walk out of them. Any ideas? Or are they supposed to run a little big so that you have room?
ok - my teenage daughter says these are stupid but I thought they were cute for crocs - maybe not for adults - but I can see my 2 year old or my 9 year old - hell - I can even see me using some of them on a pair of crocs

all of you talking about crocs makes me want a pair now... the regular kind cause i've already got the mary jane ones but i've been having trouble with it rubbing on the side of my foot cause of my ungodly narrow feet, I'm wondering if the regular crocs wouldn't do this cause it doesn't have the arch strap, or for that matter it wouldnt do it at the roo cause my feet will undoubtedly swell... either way I dont have a pay pal but I dont want to pay 30 bucks for another pair... any suggestions
