Crocs

Unfortunately, many of my shoes suffer a premature death. Especially my ballet flats that I sometimes wear with no socks.

This is because of my Hyperhidrosis.

HH will ruin the insoles of a shoe pretty quick. I had 2 pairs of Steve Madden flats that ruined within one summer. The metallic inside rubbed completely off.

HH will also make your shoes smell. I try odor-eater insoles but it doesn’t help much. Usually those insoles ruin even quicker than the shoes.

Having HH and wearing no socks will also probably impact your walking pattern.
I know that I walk differently when I’m slipping and sliding in my shoes. This altered step can ruin the whole make of the shoe, inside and out.

So, I’m in Disney World on vacation a few weeks ago and I saw a woman wearing some shoes that looked cute, comfortable and….plastic?

Okay, so they’re Crocs. And after researching them, I learned that their Croslite material doesn’t absorb water! Check this Youtube video below!

How perfect for me! I bought a pair of “Kadee” Crocs and I’m giving them a try. They are really comfortable and so far doing great with my HH.

I know that the Crocs name has gotten some laughs, but I think the new styles are really nice. If you have HH especially, I think it’s worth a try.

Here are the ones that I got: Kadee Croc. 

Happy New Year!

  1. I just came across your blog when I searched “crocs and hyperhidrosis.” I have hyperhidrosis and I am trying to find a cute pair of ballet type flats that I can wear without them getting sweat-stained or killing my feet when my feet swell up from sweating. I’ve read a lot of comments from people saying crocs actually make their feet sweat, because they don’t breathe. So after having your crocs for this long, do you still like them? If they don’t absorb sweat do you leave puddles because the sweat runs out the shoe?? 🙂 I know my feet sweat enough that this is a concern!

    • Hi Heather, thanks for your comment! I’m really glad you asked this question. I still love my Crocs because they are the first and only pair of shoes I own that I don’t feel bad wearing because I know I’m not ruining them! However, I don’t wear them often because the sweat stays in the shoes making them squeak with every step and that is very embarrassing. So here’s what I’m doing to compromise: I’ll wear them around the house with out socks because I don’t care if they squeak when I’m by myself and they’re also really comfy! If I wear them in public, I’ll wear them with ped-like socks. This helps avoid the squeaking and I also know that any moisture that is seeping through the socks won’t break the shoe. So overall, it’s up to you if you think they will work for you. I recommend them because I know they will last for a long time, but I also want you to be aware of the squeaking.

      • Thanks for the info! I think I will try to use summer soles with them to avoid the squeak. But it would be so nice to have a pair of shoes that I can’t ruin the fabric on. Sounds like we have similar problem areas. My hands and feet are the worst. I saw on another of your posts that you used Certain Dri and stopped your underarm sweat, and funny enough I did the same thing many years ago. To this day I don’t sweat in my underarms, it’s almost as if my body trained itself to sweat elsewhere. I also had my hands botoxed right before I got married, back then my insurance actually covered most of it. It has been the only thing that has worked for my hands.
