does anyone know if they run big or small or true to size? thanks!

They run pretty true to size, IMO. DD and I both have them. In the kid's sizes, they go in groups of 2 sizes, so DD wears the 8-9.

yup pretty true to size for me too.
kdmama33's Avatar kdmama33 03:49 PM 01-20-2008
I think they run a bit big, personally. I haven't tried them for me, but DD has a pair and she kinda swims in them. As a PP said, though, they come in combo sizes, so DD is in a 10/11, even though she wears a 10. I'm hoping they fit by summer.

True to size here, too, although they're a touch floppy on my AAA feet.

I think they run a bit big, long, but more narrow than original crocs. My feet are narrow and I wear a size 9, I bought a size 8 in the croc mary janes and they fit perfectly! My dd has a chubby foot and much prefers her reg crocs.

I think they run pretty true to size. I love my MJ Crocs although last summer, my feet were in such terrible shape. I think it was from the shoes- I had more callouses than ever before.

I wear an 8.5. Since they don't come in half-sizes, I bought a 9 and shrunk them in the dryer (having learned that I could on the internet).

I think they run a little big. I have a pair.

I wear a 6.5 or 7, and the 7s are a bit big on me . . . but in a comfy way. I love them . . . so much cuter than regular crocs.

Mine are the perfect length, but they're wide on me.
sojourn's Avatar sojourn 12:27 AM 01-21-2008
I think mine are longer on me. They are a funky fit, but all crocs are a funky fit on me.

I am thinking about getting a pair of the MJ's. Do your feet sweat in them though? (I have a pair of regular chocolate croc clogs I live in with none of the air holes and I can't not wear socks with them-one of the rivets broke though so I am waiting for replacements!)
sojourn's Avatar sojourn 12:36 AM 01-21-2008
Well, they are largely meant to be water shoes. We made them a weird fashion statement, so yes, air holes are key, imo.

My feet sweat in anything, and they keep me warm in winter......

In kids because they run in combo sizes they are a little on the big side. Dd has some and they are really cute but big on her feet.
ErikaLeigh's Avatar ErikaLeigh 02:46 AM 01-21-2008
someone link me to where you bought them...?
rainbowmoon's Avatar rainbowmoon 05:52 PM 01-21-2008
I'm looking on ebay (I got my brown ones from ebay NWT) but zappos is great!
rainbowmoon's Avatar rainbowmoon 05:54 PM 01-21-2008
btw what color do you all have? (I am probably getting black) but just wondering.
Arduinna's Avatar Arduinna 07:00 PM 01-21-2008
I have black ones of course.
clane's Avatar clane 08:04 PM 01-21-2008
: I have black, brown, gold and red. A wee bit of a croc problem here. In my defense, I live in FL and can wear them almost year round.

Oh, to the poster commenting about them being hard on her feet: get a pink pumice block from the beauty supply store. They are super cheap ($1.50 at most) and I use mine faithfully every morning. The last pedi I had I felt cheated because they didn't even scrape my heels.

My mary jane size 6 are much smaller than my regular style 6's.
