Not Martha

look! summer shoes with no between the toe action!

Check out the new styles of Crocs. I think I might get a pair. Does anybody know if these newer ones are available at Nordstrom, or someplace where I could try them on?


Cleo


Patra


Sassari, these look like summer heels I could actually wear.


Prima, these aren’t new but I’ve been wanting a pair ever since I saw them over at Super Eggplant. Cute.

    You have no IDEA how happy these make me! I have black Mary Janes and I wear them every. single. day. They are some of the most perfect shoes I’ve ever owned.

    I like my Mary Janes because they’re a bit more stylish than the typical clogs, so I’m grateful they’re introducing even more cute styles.

    I can definitely see myself in those cute summer heels, even to work since the office allows open toe shoes :) YAY!

    Thanks for sharing these new styles.

    I want a pair of each of those styles. I haven’t seen any of the strappy ones in the wild yet, including the crocs kiosk in the Washington Square Mall [Tigard, Oregon]. They were just made available March 1st though, so I hold out hope that they’ll show up places soon.

    I saw the ballet flats at Macy’s last week!

  • 5 daria // Mar 7, 2007 at 10:32 pm

    I just tried on a pair of the flats over at Sole Food, super cute but not for the high-arched among us (I was so sad!).

    Bummer, I’m an arch support needer myself.

    I have 9 pair of Crocs and I wear them every single day. I’m dying for some of the Sassari wedges. You won’t be sorry- Crocs are the most comfortable shoes you’ll ever wear!

  • 8 girlrobot // Mar 8, 2007 at 5:24 pm

    wow i had no idea crocs made cute shoes…i would actually wear those primas!

  • 9 mw // Mar 8, 2007 at 6:58 pm

    I have the primas in black, I wear them all the time, I love them.

    I saw them during my last trip to Nordstrom. But I didn’t see the strappy looking sandals yet.

    If you are wanting to find a place to try them on, there is a place on the Crocs website to enter in your state and city, and it will tell you which stores in your area carry them.

    The Sassari ones look really nice – - they look comfy, but dressy enough for the office this summer!

    i love my ballet flat crocs! they’re great for when it rains and for walking the pooch. who knew plastic shoes could be so cute?

  • 12 mel // Mar 9, 2007 at 2:05 pm

    i’ll be different and say that i’m not a fan of the shoes. actually, following any trend seems dangerous, because we all know that whenever the fashion police deem these outdated next year, these shoes will be tossed! :(

  • 13 megan // Mar 9, 2007 at 2:11 pm

    mel – Heard and understood, but I’m a fan of comfort over fashion. That said, these are shoes I would only wear at home or in very casual situations.

  • 14 reese // Mar 9, 2007 at 4:00 pm

    i saw them at the nordstrom downtown (i work by there so i’m there at least a couple times a week).

  • 15 megan // Mar 9, 2007 at 4:18 pm

    Thanks Reese!

    Wow! Someone else not keen on toe cleavage?

  • 17 Kristyn // Mar 10, 2007 at 8:34 am

    I bought the ballet flat crocs from the croc website and when they arrived they were a size to small. I was bummed because they didn’t fit and I didn’t want to spend the shipping on returning them and waiting another month to recieve them ect…so I gave them to my neice and moved on. Until I saw a equally cute pair from Airwalk at Payless shoe source. I don’t see them on their website but its worth taking a trip to your local store and seeking them out.

    [...] Other summer shoes are under consideration by Megan over at Not Martha. Like me, Megan cannot wear flip-flops. But unlike Megan, I can’t wear slides, either.  Hmm, now that I think about it, I’m not even sure if I could wear those Merrie clogs – but I intend to try! [...]

  • 19 marielle // Mar 10, 2007 at 8:48 am

    I’ve got summer shoes on my mind too. I do believe that I am the only person in all of Southern California who can’t just pick up a $3 pair of flip-flops and be done with it!

  • 20 megan // Mar 10, 2007 at 9:00 am

    McAuliflower – I cannot wear things between my toes, I don’t know why. I used to have a page here listing types of non-toe-thong flip flop type shoes but it was buried in the move to WordPress.

    Kristyn – I’ll keep an eye out, there is a Payless near the Target I visit pretty regularily.

    Marielle – I feel your pain.

    Daria – Thanks for the info about the lack of arches. Sadly, I need the arch support. I’ll stop in Sole Food next time I’m up there though.

  • 21 Seattlejo // Mar 13, 2007 at 9:43 am

    Have you seen the crock knockoffs at Payless? I wanted a pair of the pimas but they just didnt seem sturdy enough.

  • 22 Michelle // Mar 14, 2007 at 3:50 pm

    Oh that pink pair is adorable!

  • 23 Brandy // Mar 23, 2007 at 9:37 am

    I want the sassari so bad! I called the crocs company and apparently they aren’t out yet, though they were expected to have been released on 3/1.

    Mel, like others on here I have spent more money then I care to admit on ‘comfortable’ shoes that were in style, and every pair has failed me in comfort, except my $30 crocs. So for 30 bucks I will enjoy my comfort and when/if I choose to be a follower of the fashion police it wont be a big deal because it was only 30 bucks.

  • 24 ladyjane // Apr 2, 2007 at 10:27 am

    Try the $11.99 moc-crocs at Target. They call them Water Ballet Flats. They’re pretty awesome for the price!

  • 25 Christina // Apr 17, 2007 at 1:59 pm

    I have a pair of Crocs Cleo in the chocolate and pink color in Size 5. They fit true to size, even maybe a little too snug (the back of my heel ends where the shoe ends), but I can honestly say that these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They are a MUST try even if you think you need arch support and you’ve heard (but not tried on and walked in yourself) that Crocs have no arch support. I think if you try on a pair of Crocs, you’ll get an idea of what “walking on air” feels like.
