I definitely do that . . . when I wore SAS, I would customarily buy two pair at a time, in order to alternate days of wearing them. It gave them longer to get aired out & dried out, and they seemed to last longer too.

When I was younger, I tried to make it a rule to buy three or four pairs of shoes that I rotated on a daily basis. And it worked - they did last longer, not just because they were only being worn twice a week rather than seven times. Latterly I got lazy and usually trashed a pair and only bought a new pair when they were almost dead. Bad habit!

@vrbalthezr - my BH found the same thing. Tried the "new" version but took them back off within minutes as they forced her toes into an uncomfortable position. Had returning them not been more bother and cost than they were worth, they would have gone back to the supplier. And she's still hunting for a winter shoe as well as a new pair of VFFs for the summer (when it finally gets back)

Crocs are now marketing a little flat jelly shoe they call Adrina, which I've tried and found acceptable as a 'dressier' version, if it's even possible to make such a statement about crocs! Since I wear long dresses/skirts all the time, the shoe isn't so visible that I hope it can't be identified as a jelly! The open toe eliminates my issues with toe crowding.

Oooh, how I would love to be able to have that!!!

Jasper the cat EATS crocs. He has eaten 5 pairs! And flip flops. And most recently a pair of Birkenstocks that I thought were firmer and less appealing to chew.

Thankfully, Jasper is a very, VERY affectionate and endearing little thing, otherwise. We think he is a Japanese Bobtail, but he could be anything. He acts most like an Abyssinian. If I had the money, I'd have his breed genetics run. He drools enough, it would be easy to get a sample!

He does maintain a svelte look on that diet. He is nutsy! He also trashes my yarn! Drags it all over the house, but does not actuallyspoil it for use.

But, I have digressed.

I wonder if jasper's drooling and shoe chewing are related? We had a cat once that licked the carpet all the time - never did figure out why...

I've worn my new Crocs for 24 hours so far and am impressed. They aren't as warm as I had hoped - definitely not winter walking shoes but are fine for the house, car and going shopping. They have lots of toe room and wide enough for my feet and the tops are very soft and compliant. It's a good thing I got the model that converts to a lace-up boot, as that is the only way I can keep my foot from sliding up out of the back (I ordered 13 as usual and in these, a size 12 would have been better). My slippers do that, too - it is the lack of that built up cushion at the top of the heel. They do not have a cushy ride. The soles are pretty hard but my feet feel great today! The arch support is good, too.

I got my new sneakers a couple of weeks ago. They are very nice but I have a problem with them. on my left foot my ring toe slips under or feels like it lays under my middle toe making it painful to walk. I've noticed this in my Crocs too. I didn't before but now I definitely do. Even when I go barefoot I'm walking with my ring toe under the middle toe. I have to see my Podiatrist on the 6th of January so I'm going to see if there is something I can do to fix this problem. The right shoe feels fantastic. I love them.
