Are Crocs Really Good For Your Feet?
They are called Crocs and these clog-like shoes are eye-catching. But do these trendy shoes have a place in good foot care?
They come in bright colors and it seems that more and more Americans are making their feet do the talking...or rather walk the talk with their Crocs.
The shoe might not match everyone's idea of fashion, but fans swear by its comfort. Croc lovers say they bring health benefits to the two extremities that carry us all the places we go.
Are Crocs really good for our feet? Or is this footwear phenom just a passing fad?
Crocs have the official seal of approval from the APMA, meaning the shoes have been found to be beneficial in promoting good foot and ankle care. But not all doctors have signed on to the medical value of the shoes.
