If you know me and hang out with me, or see me around my community, then chances are you’ll see me wearing my Cleo Crocs. I have relied on my Crocs for summer for a few years now. So I was THRILLED when Crocs finally wanted to partner with me! They probably got tired of me bugging them on Twitter. Seriously, I think I’m their No.1 fan! I was given a choice out of a few styles and even though I usually don’t wear anything between my toes, I couldn’t stop admiring the A-leigh Brushed Metallic Flip. It comes in silver or gold. When they first arrived, I may have squealed! I quickly took them out of the box and slipped them on my feet. I still wasn’t sure about the toe thingy between my toes, but I decided to be a big girl and wear them around the house for a bit to see if I would get use to them, because they were so dang cute! I had to make them work! They were also instantly very comfortable everywhere else. I am happy to report, that I have actually worn them out of the house and they felt fine! And I didn’t get a blister! Dare I say I’m getting over my toe issue? I have the most tender feet in the whole wide world. Really. I carry band aids everywhere I go. If you look at my feet the wrong way, I’ll get a blister. They just don’t callus. They really don’t. Every time I get a pedicure, they comment that I have no calluses and probably feel excited that they don’t have to work so hard. You may think that would be blissful to have no calluses, but in reality, it makes for wimpy feet. It means that when I was a “dancer” back in college (yes, I have my minor in dance!) my feet were always torn up. It also means that whenever we go on vacation, I blister easily if I wear anything other than my runners, or my Crocs. True story. Back in 2006, I started my long love affair with Crocs by trying out their Red Mary Janes. I loved them!
Then I saw the Cleo Crocs and gave them a try. That was all it took. Each spring, I order two pair of the Cleo Crocs style. I can’t bear to throw any out, so I’ve accumulated quite the collection and I’m embarrassed to say these are only half of my stash. I have hiked Moab, the Grand Canyon and Zion all in my Crocs! I wear them ALL THE TIME from May until October. (My toes are usually always red too.)
So I’m happy (and I’m sure my husband is too) to have these new Flips to add to my Crocs stash. It’s a good reminder to branch out and try new Crocs styles.
Which style of Crocs would you wear to find your fun this summer?

I don’t ever wear sandals that go between my toes – I think they’re so uncomfy. I LOVE the turquoise and navy sandals pictured in the line up. I’d totally wear those!
I think I’d have to try the gold ones! Those are super cute and I’ve never seen them before. I just might have to go try on a pair. 🙂 It was fun to meet you at Indulge PDX this past weekend!
Bonnie, so great to meet you too!

I just bought myself a pair of capri sequin flip flops but the cleo style looks intriguing too!

I have been *seriously* impressed by the designs available for the past few years. I pretty much live in crocs, especially on vacation, when we walk miles and miles every day. I most recently picked up these adorable rainbow woven sandals that totally make me feel better about the fact that my mom would never let me have jellies as a kid. 😉

I’m loving the silver ones like yoU!
How did you ever decide which ones to pick?!?! I also liked the green ones and the brown ones…comfy shoes rock!!
It was hard, but I’m pretty casual and even though I loved all of them, I figured I’d get the most use out of these!
I love my Cleo crocs, I have them in several colors! The metallic ones…now those are pretty! I need them in my life and on my feet! I love the comfort of Crocs and now I love the style!
I know! I can’t give up my Cleo’s completely, but now I have another fav!
I love that Crocs are getting into other styles!! They just keep getting better and better!! Super cute!
I seriously want the gold ones! So stinkin cute!
Cute crocs! I had no idea they made flip flop style sandals. Thanks for sharing.

These are so cute. It amazing how stylish Crocs are getting.
They have so many styles that people are unaware of. People are always asking me what brand my Cleo Crocs are and I’ve had many compliments on these too!
The brushed metallic flips… In silver.
HOW are they Crocs?!
you need both!
Wow those are so nice! I’m shocked at how much more stylish these are than the first generation crocs way back when! Thanks for sharing!
Seriously….. people are so surprised!
I’ve been buying the same style of Crocs flip flops for a good 4 years! I buy 2 pair in January (gotta love warm weather living!) and 2 in June and wear them out. 🙂 But I love the metallic style you chose. I may have to try those out!
I also suffer from plantar fasciitis, and I am so careful about the shoes I wear. I’m really excited to hear that I can now wear flip flops without pain! I am definitely going to look for the Capri flip flops. Thank you!

I LOVE Crocs! I have been wearing some tired old men flips though. I need to pick up a pair of the Rio flips or the Ella Comfortpath. They are so cute and look so comfy!
I can’t believe these are crocs! I must have a pair of these! I would rock these this summer on the boardwalk.

I totally get this! I am obsessed with my Crocs and have literally not put another brand of shoe on my feet in years! I was crushed when the Juneau style was discontinued and I have been searching for a replacement. (I even haunt Ebay looking for someone selling their recently found Juneau’s) I did just purchase my first pair of Cleo’s and am enjoying them very much!
Robin…. RIGHT? I love my cleo’s! But you already knew that! I don’t think I know what the Juneau is. It’s probably best. 🙂
Hi Kim. I am also a Crocs fanatic. I started wearing the Capri flip flops about 6 years ago after suffering with plantar fasciitis from wearing , too flat flip flops. I bought my first pair of Crocs and was hooked. I just ordered 3 more pairs. I even wear my old ones as slippers, year round. I understand your love of them.
Crocs have been GREAT for plantar fasciitis!
