Crocs, the waterproof, brightly colored clogs covered with distinctive holes, were originally designed to eliminate plantar pain and aching feet, and they are recommended for patients with diabetes and aching bunions. As many find these shoes incredibly comfortable and easy to put on, Crocs have found their way into the mainstream. Crocs footwear has expanded to include more conservative styles, such as ballet flats and wedges, which are made from the same material. Unfortunately, all of these styles have something else in common: an embarrassing squeaking noise made when the shoes get wet, don’t fit well or are worn too often.
Wear your Crocs sparingly. Crocs were not designed to be worn as an everyday shoe, and overuse can wear down and soften the material, making it more vulnerable to squeaking.
Purchase shoes that fit snugly on your feet. As most Crocs have holes in them, air can flow in and get trapped inside the shoe, causing squeaking noises when you step down. This is less of a problem with shoes that fit well.
Keep your feet dry. Sweaty feet and moisture in general can cause the shoes to squeak. Wear tights or socks with your shoes, or sprinkle baby powder on your feet to absorb moisture.
