I was never tempted to buy the original Crocs in the past because they looked like they belonged on cartoon characters. Then Crocs came out with reasonable-looking footwear and I bought a pair of tie-up mocassins. I was so impressed with them that I bought the Hover Work shoes I'm reviewing now. I wear hard-to-find size 13.5 shoes, but the size 13 mocassins were larger than marked and a pleasure to wear. When my size 13 Hover Work shoes arrived I slipped my feet into them and they fit nicely. However, after walking around in them a while I find that the seams stitched together above my small toe on the outside edge of the shoes are very uncomfortable. I can only hope that in time these shoes with conform to my feet (and not vice versa). Until then, wearing them is a pain in the pinky. My advice to potential customers is to order the correct half-size or even the next size larger, as these Hover Work shoes are NOT larger than marked. They look good on me, the soles are a pleasure to walk in, but the uppers are painful when the size is wrong. I like these shoes because they can be worn for formal events and for walks in the park. They are good for prolonged standing, too. But I dislike the pain in the pinky that the seams are causing me.
