recently got some cheap croc copies off the market to wear as slippers. i am loving them, light, comfy and i don't care what i look like. I dont intend to leave the house wearing them!
So do i get some 'proper' ones. are they comfier?
i have a chronic muscle strain in 1 leg which can get quite painful at times, so i like to wear something supportive round the house. I usually wear my birkenstocks, but fancied a change and wanted something that covers my toes.
If not crocs then anyone got any suggestions?
(and i love the birkenstock clogs, but theyre a bit out of my price range at present)

I got real ones for £10 and love them, I have lower back problems and a problem with my foot, and since wearing them (yes I d wear them out!) the pains have gone.

Mine are a plain dark colour so if I wear them with long jeans no one can see.

Brilliant invention. And cheaper than an osteopath grin

I bought some from sports direct for 2 pounds when pregnant and never wore them so they live outside my patio doors for hanging out the washing.

They are very very comfy as I found out when I was in a bit of a rush to get dd from preschool and looked down at my feet and realised I had forgotten to take them off blush very comfy 2.5 mile walk but the shame!!!!
