Crocs Have Many Uses, But They are Not for Hiking: MD Podiatrist

According to podiatrist Dan Michaels, DPM, Crocs are great to wear after any kind of foot surgery or for diabetes sufferers in hot climates. This is down to their wide fit with a large toe box and ventilation that helps your feet breathe. Another benefit is that Crocs are lined with an antibacterial layer that prevents bacterial and fungal infections.
As well as their benefits for foot injuries, Crocs are also comfortable, lightweight, and have adequate arch support for everyday wearing. You can wear them barefoot without socks and not suffer from blisters. Overall, Crocs are kind and forgiving to your feet around the house and garden or even down to the shops but for any serious hiking, you really want some proper hiking footwear.
