The last year I began to take a liking to Crocs. So many cute styles are available and they are really comfortable. I even got a pair of ‘dressy’ Genna CrocBling for my daughter which she loves. Last week, I cleaned all our Crocs and put them outside to dry. Unfortunately I forgot about them and they shrunk in the sun. She needed to wear them for an event on the weekend and now they were way too small for her feet! Now what?
After doing some research there were two options: put them in the dryer or use a hair dryer.
As I did not want to break the dryer or for the glitter on the shoes to come off, I opted to use a hair dryer. I put the hair dryer on the hottest setting and at full blast as I slowly moved it around the sides of the shoe. After the material became soft and pliable (only takes a minute or so) I had my daughter put it on while wearing socks. Not only would this ensure the correct fit since she usually likes to wear socks with these shoes but it also protected her feet while the Crocs were still warm. If the they will be worn barefoot, try some thin socks instead. She then wore the shoes until they cooled. It worked! The shoes fit perfectly again and she was able to show them off to friends and family.
So if your pair of Crocs are a tad too big, too small, or just rub you wrong in one area, grab your hair dryer and do a little tweaking before you toss them out!
