On the fence about these. I bought these 2 months ago in neon purple, it's a really cool, deep purple color, much nicer than the pic. These are my first Crocs and I wanted to love them (I had a super comfy pair of knockoffs in the past). My pair was made in Vietnam and from what I've read, I understand the fit and comfort is different, based on where they're made. The little nubs on the inner sole are so irritating. I tried to wear them a few times, hoping the nubs would squish down a little, but they didn't. All of my shoes are 8.5M or 9M, so I bought the 9. The fit is fine when I don't use the heel strap. With the strap, my foot gets pushed forward, and my toes touch the front making them more uncomfortable. I brought them with me when I went away for July 4th and I forced myself to wear them 1 day. I hoped the inner sole nubs would soften a bit, and that the strap would stretch. By the late afternoon, the soles of my feet were so irritated that I ran into a Walmart and bought a pair of their cheap knockoff Crocs for 1/5 the price. What a difference! The nubs on the inner sole are more subtle and don't bother my feet at all, and the fit it much better. They are sooo comfortable, and I wore them for the rest of my trip. I've read that the Crocs made in China are the most comfortable, and the ones made in Mexico and Vietnam, not so much. It's a crapshoot because you don't know which ones you'll get. I'm not yet ready to give up on my purple Crocs, because they were expensive and I can no longer return them. For this price point, the quality should be consistent, regardless of the country that manufactured them. The 3 stars is for the color and style.
