    from what i understand, the crocs are not meant to fit nicely but loosely.

    That means you should get size M (8-9) then. At first it will feel a little strange wearing sandals that are loose like that. But after a day or two, you will get used to it. Although Crocs sandals look kind of ugly, I must say that they are really really comfortable.

    Yeah, that's what I thought when I first saw people wearing them.
    My wife tried one pair on and she said they are very comfortable and keeps egging me to buy one pair for myself.
    After much nagging, I finally decided to try and I'm a convert now
    Now I never go out without my crocs on (except to work).
    As for the size, I don't use the strap so I have about 1 cm gap, just nice. If I put on the strap, then it will be a bit too tight, will need to go the next bigger size.

    i think they're so ugly...i've never tried them, but i don't see how they could be more comfortable than a good sneaker?

    Just for those who wanna try..

    There're many wearing the 'pirate' $6 version who claims on comparision that they're just as good! Probably because they're made from same material?
    But has been noted that there're different 'pirate' quality version just like DVDs..distinguished by the black 'nut' at the sides.
    A good version has the 'nut' without printing but has a hexagontal imprint.

    Because the material is so soft and comfortable.

    Escalators seem to like chewing on them.

    I have both the original & the clone. They are both about the same weight but resistence is quite different. The clone one seems to be very slippery on wet grounds. While comfy wise, it's about the same as you have to get a bigger size, so that should not be a problem. But at that price, it's really crazy. $50+ for a pair of slippers, is it necessary? Will it spoil? Does it worth that kind of $ I have a pair of slippers which my friend brought from Bangkok too sell last time and it cost me only $10 & i feel pretty comfy in it and it's made of similiar material of the croc. Anyway, crocs are not exceptionally comfy or nice and afterall it's just a pair of slippers. With that price, I could get another pair of nice shoes.

    Anyway, just my 2 cents worth.

    I saw such an incident happen before me... Man, it's feel like a meat mincer... A yellow CROC (the real thing) got caught on the "in-going" gap before going off the escalator. The shoes got stuck there, the front was literally chewed by the teeth of the escalator. Someone tried to pull it from the "jaws" of the ever-running teeth, but the strap behind came off and was damaged. Final shoes? Front was chewed and damaged, strap came off, shoes is a goner.... Guess what? Next day every escalator got a photo teaching you how to stand on the escalator, instructional photos included! Don't believe? Check out Causeway Point shopping centre
