The One Thing You Should Never Do When Wearing Crocs

June 7, 2016 by Sara Alderman
shefinds | Shop

Don’t be fooled by the “walking on air” feeling of Crocs. Sure, the rubber clogs might be your go-to when you need to slip something on quickly, however, podiatrists (aka, foot doctors, aka experts) are not fans.

“Unfortunately Crocs are not suitable for all-day use,” Chicago podiatrist Dr. Megan Leahy told the Huffington Post. She said, the shoes do have good arch support, but you really shouldn’t wear them for a long period of time. “These shoes do not adequately secure the heel. When the heel is unstable, toes tend to grip which can lead to tendinitis, worsening of toe deformities, nail problems, corns and calluses. The same thing can happen with flip flops or any backless shoes as the heel is not secured.”

Dr. Alex Kor, President of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine, said his patients who wear Crocs often complain of arch or heel pain. He admitted that people with “a very high arch” or “suffer from excessive edema of their legs and ankle” may benefit from wearing Crocs. But, Kor still warned, “under no circumstances can I suggest wearing Crocs 8 to 10 hours per day.”

So, there you have it, Croc-wearers. Feel free to wear the shoes for a quick dog walk or going out to get the mail, but you should not wear them for long periods of time.
