Are Crocs healthy for your feet? Or Is It Croc?

Fashion aside, the world has become obsessed with the comfort found in a pair of Crocs. With an assortment of colors from bright patterns to calming pastels, you can be sure to find a pair of Crocs to go with every outfit. However, the true question with Crocs does not lie with fashion, but the most important aspect of this comfy form of footwear is health. Are Crocs healthy for your feet?  Or, do they simply create a cloud of cushion for your walk?

Crocs are extremely light on your feet as heavy shoes weigh your feet down, which make each step a bigger effort. The toe box is wide so your toes can wiggle and tall so the shoe is not pressing down on your toes. They have several holes on the top giving your feet proper ventilation. The Rx Crocs have an antibacterial lining in order to reduce your risk for developing fungal or bacterial infections. Also, crocs give your feet arch support and cushion your feet with every step.

Crocs are a healthy alternative to summer sandals like flip-flops. The classic Crocs are similar in design to that of a clog making them easy to slip on and off of your feet. Crocs are just as easy to slip on, keep your feet cool and maintain your health. They offer your feet greater protection than most other summer sandals while maintaining comfort.

So there you have it, Crocs aren’t just about comfort, but they are all about maintaining the health of your feet. Crocs have the official seal of approval by the APMA, letting you know that Crocs are not only the comfy choice, but the healthy choice. Crocs are perfect for walking and every day use but are not for serious physical activity.
