We got the crocodile ones, my son loved them. Is the first time I can get him out of his Crocs. He wore them in snow, rainy days, windy, or just plain warm cool days happily. His feet stayed dry even when playing in the rain. I just cleaned them onces because they got muddy but afterwards just with a soft cleaning brush. I didn't regret buying him some more expensive shoes. It has been almost a year his feet has grown one whole size and he can still comfortably wear them, there is a minor tear on the sole bending part...but not even his Crocs, adidas, or Toms managed to last that long. He goes fast on his shoes as he goes frequently sowing and harvesting on our home produce, and its jumping, falling, and playing on the floor... I'm trying to find a new pair hopefully with a good discount. He can also easily put them in and out. Also everyone from older, to college students, and kids and mommys complimented him on his super cool boots.
