Crocs Shrink in the Sun!

I have worn Crocs for several years, in fact, I am just getting ready to replace my first pair. The pair I have been wearing are about 4 years old. It amazes me how well they have held up, because I am quite rough on shoes.

I had been wearing my Crocs outside to do yard work. When I went into the house, I left them on the outside step so as not to track in grass and dirt. The steps are pretty much in full sun throughout the day. I had left them out there for a few days, when my daughter looked outside at them and said they had shrunk!

Sure enough, they had shrunk, and that was a good thing; at least for me. From wearing them so much, they had gotten too big and loose on my foot. Now it is like I have a new pair of Crocs!

I noticed too the more you wear them, they seem to get bigger. (07/07/2009)

Another thing to do is to wash them in the washing machine. Mine got pretty dirty and I thought that the washing machine would be the perfect to get them clean. Clean - no, but yes they did shrink. (07/10/2009)

I forgot to mention, when you do place your Crocs out in the sun to shrink, keep checking on their "progress" day by day. It seems the longer they are out there, the smaller they get. You want to make sure to get the right size! :o) (07/14/2009)
