All the mom Facebook groups are going wild for Crocs platforms. I bought them, and they are 100% worth it.

  • Earlier this month I noticed trend in my mom groups: the same Crocs sandals were being talked about everywhere.

  • I decided to buy a pair of the Mega Crush Sandal since I'm already a fan of the brand.

  • They are incredibly comfortable and have a retro 90s vibe that I love.

I've always said that Crocs are the perfect mom shoe. I was very anti-Crocs clogs until I became pregnant with my first, and literally could not fit my feet into any of my regular shoes. My husband suggested I buy a pair of fleece-lined Crocs while visiting Maine and I was deeply offended.  I just thought they were so unstylish.

But after trying them just for fun, I got it. My feet were so comfortable that I bought them and wore them non-stop until they fell apart.

Since 2017, I've been purchasing Crocs in several colors. I also bought a winter pair as well as the strawberry print shoe that was popular early in the pandemic. Needless to say, my children also have several pairs of their own. The shoes are easy to put on and take off, they can get wet, they're easy to clean, and they're overall very comfortable.

Recently I noticed all the Facebook mom groups I'm in talking about the brand's new Crush collection, which features clogs, sandals, and boots with a 90s retro-looking platform. At first, I ignored all the posts since I knew I didn't need yet another pair of Crocs. But the more I ignored them, the more they seemed to keep coming up in conversation.

With summer around the corner, I decided to give them a try. To my surprise, they were mostly sold out. I was only able to get them in "elephant," a gray color.

It wouldn't have been my first choice. I really wanted white or bright pink, but all the posts I read complained about how these two colors were getting restocked and sold out almost immediately. The gray color is really easy to wear because it goes well with most every color.

The package arrived a couple of days later, and the second I put my feet in them, I got why there's so much hype around these $70 sandals. They are comfortable, yes, but they're also so cute. They feel less like Crocs than the brand's regular clogs and can be easily dressed down (to go to the beach, for example) or even dressed up.

I also bought a pack of charms to decorate mine and make them look a bit fancier since I plan to wear these around the city more than anything else.

So, here's my advice. Get the Crocs Mega Crush Sandal. It's everything your Spice Girl-loving teenage heart ever wanted.
