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.

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 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.

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!)

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.

: 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.
