At the Frequent Traveler University earlier this year, a reader told me about the Crocs Sexi Sandal, a supposedly attractive, comfortable sandal that looks nothing like your typical Crocs. I looked it up, and I agreed!
The question was whether they were comfortable. I took them on my recent Asia vacation to try them out. My friend couldn’t believe they were made by Crocs.
I put them on for the half mile walk uphill from our hotel to the Hong Kong Peak Tram. The sole was incredibly comfortable and I really appreciated the super soft, gel-like straps which didn’t hurt the massive bruise I had on the top of my foot from falling down the stairs a week before. But no sooner had we reached the tram then one of Hong Kong’s signature rainstorms happened. We headed back to the hotel in nearly horizontal rain, getting completely soaked.
Shortly after this picture was taken, I discovered the flaw of the Crocs Sexi Sandal. As I was crossing an intersection, my foot suddenly slipped inside the shoe and went sliding all the way out the front, nearly making me fall in the road and leaving the shoe awkwardly stuck on my heel/ankle. Once it dried, I had no problems.
So I definitely recommend the shoe for a casual, comfortable sandal to wear site-seeing, just don’t add water!
Where to buy? I stalked them on Amazon for a few weeks and the price ranges from $21-$35, so if you’re not in a hurry, add it to your cart and wait for it to drop in price. 6pm.com currently has them on sale for $24.50!
