First Pair of Crocs and Sandals

I love Crocs!  I bought my first pair a few years ago, and I would wear them all the time if I could.  They are so comfortable.  They were the only pair of shoes I could wear towards the end of my pregnancy with Cole, when my feet started to swell. 

I have wanted to get Ryan a pair since last year, but his feet were too small, and at that time the smallest size kid Crocs that was made was size 8/9.  Now they the smallest size is 4/5, but I knew Ryan would be able to wear a pair this spring.  He likes trying mine on, and in the summer, when Joe has his pair out, he likes to wear Dad’s Crocs.

Last week Ryan had gone about 4 days, of not having any potty accidents, and was doing so well, with stopping what he was doing, to go potty.  I told him for a special treat, we would go pick out his first pair of Crocs.

He was really excited, and the store we went to, didn’t have the color I wanted for him- sea blue.  We tried on a navy pair, and Ryan said he didn’t like that color.  I asked him what color he liked, and after looking around, he took a fuchsia pink pair off the rack.

As much as we try to not do the boy and girl stereotypes, I was not going to let him run around in a pair of hot pink shoes all summer.  So I told him that color was more for girls, and asked him if he liked a different color.  He then picked out lime green ones, and that was that.  Here are a couple of pictures of him showing off his new shoes.

He really likes them, and can put them on, and take them off himself.  He likes wearing them around the house too. 

Not to be left out, we tried a pair of the 4/5 size on Cole, but they just fell off his foot.  He is too little for them yet, but next year, he will have his first pair of Crocs too.  I did order him these soft-soled sandals from Shoo Shoos, since he is probably just weeks away from walking, and will need something to protect his little feet this summer.  He wore them for the first time out yesterday, and did really well with them.  He even got a compliment on how cute they looked.  (I forgot to take a picture of Cole in his sandals, but I am sure I’ll have lots of pictures of him in the near future with them on.)  So now my little boys are all set for their summer shoes.  🙂

  1. Isn’t Ryan cute in those crocs!? What a great color! I always wondered…do crocs make your feet sweat? I’ve never tried a pair. 🙂

  2. They don’t make my feet sweat, but my mom tried a pair and said they made her feet sweat, so I think it just depends. Most places that sell them will take them back if you just wear them inside, so if your feet do sweat you should be able to return them, as long as the soles aren’t marked up. 🙂

  3. cute! i like the green ones a lot.
    i was so happy to find out that ava’s crocs from last summer still fit this year – at least for now. 🙂
