Made Of Foam Resin
Crocs Are Non-Slip And Waterproof

Diabetes Complications - Anti-bacterial Crocs May Help To Alleviate Some Problems
Diabetes takes a particular toll on the feet of sufferers. Because of impaired circulation in the extremities, diabetics are especially susceptible to the development of painful ulcers of the foot and toes, often leading to infection and sometimes to the need for amputation. Crocs' anti-bacterial properties and comfortable fit may help to combat this problem.

A Favorite Among Nurses and Doctors, Too! - Crocs Are Lightweight And Comfortable

Perhaps it is this connection to the nursing profession that first brought Crocs to the attention of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services which has approved the Custom Cloud model with molded insoles for its diabetic footwear program.
Of course, nurses aren't the only professionals whose feet would welcome a change from ordinary shoes. The lightweight, breathable Professional line of Crocs would benefit the feet of anyone whose job involves walking. Experience the difference!
