WHAT A CROC!! LITERALLY!!

Who'd a thunk it!???!!

I bought these while back in the states and brought them for John when I returned the end of May.
He wore them almost daily until one day he left them in the back of van.

A couple of days later I noticed them and took them out and put in the house.
That afternoon John went to put them on and his foot would not fit in the left one! HUH??
He picked them both up and held them together and thought somehow he'd picked up someone else's left shoe the last time he wore them... this had been to a basketball game and in Japan at most gyms you have to change from your outdoor to indoor shoes. Crocs are quite popular here as well and so it wouldn't be a total impossibility to have mistakenly picked up the wrong shoe... EXCEPT that if he had he surely would have noticed when he tried to put it on to go to the car!!

So, he turned them over and !!???! they're both size 12!!

But the left one looks more like a 10!!


All I could think of was that he'd left them in the van. Mind you we've had an extremely mild summer... not o mention the oddity that it was on;y 1 shoe!! So John decided he'd write the company. Lo and behold... on the site while he's looking for the contact info, he runs across this, "To keep your Crocs in good condition, you will want to avoid leaving them where they will be exposed to heat or sun, such as a dish washer, washing machine, or hot car, as this can cause the shoes to shrink or warp." !!!!!! WHAT?! So much for writing them.

So for all you Croc wearers out there, consider yourselves warned - DON'T LEAVE THOSE CROCS IN THE CAR!!!! unless of course one foot is considerably smaller than the other!

And then you better hope the correct one shrinks!

Live and learn :-}
