The Best Closed Toe Crocs Without Holes [My Favorite Options]


If you are searching for Crocs without holes, you have several options. These closed toe Crocs help meet certain workplace standards, but the design features of these Crocs do vary. I like the Crocs Bistro Pro closed toe Crocs because they use the comfortable LiteRide insoles and also have an adjustable heel strap for a more secure fit.

These are the different types of closed Crocs without holes:

Yes, all of these clogs are closed toe Crocs, but it is important to note that the Crocs On-the-Clock clogs and the Crocs Neria clogs are also closed-heel, meaning they don’t have a heel strap. For example, here are my closed toe On-the-Clock Crocs:

crocs-on-the-clock-side

The other three options will be open-heel design (but with a catch). Because these types of Crocs without holes are designed mainly for the workplace, even the open-heel options are a bit different than Crocs Classics. The Crocs Bistro, Crocs Bistro Pro, and Crocs Specialist II clogs listed above all have an open heel, but with a taller heel cup than Crocs Classics.

For example, here is the heel of my Crocs Classics (left) compared to my Crocs Bistro (right):

crocs-bistro-vs-classic-heel

The main takeaway is that because these closed toe Crocs are designed mainly for workwear, they have extra design features to help them meet certain workplace standards. Of course, every employer is unique, so always double-check to make sure the type of Crocs you choose meets the safety requirements of your job.

In this article I want to take a closer look at my experience with closed toe Crocs, and discuss the main design differences. Let’s also discuss several things to consider when buying Crocs without holes.

My Favorite Closed Toe Crocs Without Holes

Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide Clogs

Weight0.83 pounds
ToeClosed
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy
Slip-ResistantYes

These are my favorite closed toe Crocs for two main reasons: 1) they have an adjustable heel strap that provides a secure fit and 2) they are made using the LiteRide insoles.

If you aren’t familiar with the LiteRide insoles, they are insoles that provide extra foam cushioning under the foot, and are very comfortable to wear, especially if you spend long days on your feet. In the videow below I tried to capture how comfortable these LiteRide insoles are:

These Bistro Pro clogs have a closed-toe design with no ventilation holes, but they do have the open heel. Now, it is important to note that these Bistro Pro blogs have a taller heel cup than standard Crocs. For example, below is the heel of my Bistro Pro clogs (left) compared to my Classic clogs (right):

crocs-bistro-pro-vs-classic-heel

This taller heel cup helps meet certain workplace standards, but always verify if open-heel is okay for your job. These Crocs Bistro Pro clogs do have the slip-resistant outsole for extra grip on the job.

Crocs Bistro Clogs

Weight0.73 pounds
ToeClosed
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy
Slip-ResistantYes

The Crocs Bistro Clog is very similar to the Bistro Pro we just discussed, only this Bistro clog doesn’t have the LiteRide insole or the adjustable heel strap. It does, however, weigh a bit less than the Bistro Pro clogs from above.

Yes, this is a closed toe Crocs shoe with an open heel. It has the pivoting heel strap and not the adjustable strap that the Bistro Pro clogs have. Although adjustable straps provide a secure fit, if you enjoy being able to kick your shoes off and on, this pivoting heel strap will be the better option.

This Crocs Bistro clog does have a taller heel cup that the Crocs Classic clogs:

crocs-bistro-vs-classic-heel

These Crocs Bistro clogs do have slip-resistant outsoles. Just like the Crocs Classic, the Crocs Bistro has a roomy toe box. I actually found these Crocs Bistro clogs to fit bigger than Crocs Classics.

This is the current price of these Crocs Bistro Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this style of Crocs without holes and see sizing photos, visit my review of Crocs Bistro Clogs.

Crocs Specialist II Clogs

Weight0.60 pounds
ToeClosed*
HeelOpen*
Fit Roomy
Slip-ResistantNo

These Crocs Specialist II Clogs are very similar to the Crocs Bistro clogs, only these Crocs Specialist II clogs don’t have the special slip-resistant outsoles that the Bistro clogs have, and because of that, these Crocs Specialist II clogs weigh less than the other options on this list.

crocs-specialist-heel

Although these Specialist Clogs have an open heel, the heel is taller than normal Crocs (comparison pictured above) which might help meet certain workplace standards. There is also extra arch support which can be beneficial on the job. Just like the Crocs Classics, they have a roomy toe box area.

It is important to note that although my Crocs Specialist II clogs are closed toe shoes, Crocs does offer these Specialist II clogs in a ventilated version also, so be sure you are buying the right version.

This is the current price of these Crocs Specialist II Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of closed toe Crocs without holes and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Specialist II Review.

Crocs On-the-Clock Work Clogs

Weight0.84 pounds
ToeClosed
HeelClosed
Fit Relaxed
Slip-ResistantYes

This is the current price of these Crocs On-the-Clock Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). My Crocs On-the-Clock clogs don’t have LiteRide insoles, but it is important to note that Crocs does offer these On-the-Clock Crocs in a LiteRide version (which is linked at the top of the page).

The Crocs On-the-Clock shoes are very different than other types of Crocs Clogs. This Crocs On-the-Clock shoe has both a closed toe and a close heel. Although all Crocs are lightweight compared to other types of shoes, because these Crocs On-the-Clock shoes have a closed heel and toe, they weigh a bit more than other Crocs without holes.

And it is important to understand that because this Crocs On-the-Clock shoe is meant to be used primarily as a work shoe, and has a slip on design without a heel strap, it has a snugger fit than Crocs Classics. No, don’t expect a tight fit, but the fit (which Crocs calls “Relaxed”) doesn’t have quite as wide of a toe box as the Crocs Classics.

The On-the-Clock closed toe Crocs are made with slip-resistant outsoles and have small ventilation holes on the side of the foot to increase air flow. If you want to read more about this type of Crocs without holes and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs On-the-Clock Shoe Review.


What to Consider When Buying Closed Toe Crocs Without Holes

Do You Need Adjustable Crocs?

Most types of Crocs clogs come with a pivoting heel strap that is not adjustable. But it is also important to note that the pivoting heel strap is quite flexible, which does help the overall fit of the clog. In the video below, I tried to capture how flexible the pivoting heel strap really is:

If you are searching for a style of Crocs clog that has an adjustable heel strap, yes, there are options. As we discussed earlier in the article, the Crocs Bistro Pro clogs are the only type of closed toe Crocs that have an adjustable heel strap. Here is a look at mine:

crocs-bistro-pro-strap

Which Crocs Have the Most Cushion?

If you are standing all day on the job, comfort is essentials. Yes, all Crocs without holes are comfortable – they are made using what Crocs calls a “CrosLite” foam material which creates cushioning and comfort under the foot.

That said, if you want to maximize comfort, I would recommend buying a pair of closed toe Crocs that use the LiteRide insoles. Basically, these LiteRide insoles are just extra foam cushioning, but they make the insole area very soft and comfortable to wear (LiteRide compared to Classics).

In the video below, I tried to capture just how soft my Crocs LiteRide insoles are.

These LiteRide insoles are offered in several different types of Crocs clogs, including a couple versions of closed toe Crocs.

Slip Resistant Crocs Without Holes

Do you need slip-resistant shoes for work? Most (but not all) closed toe Crocs are also made with the special slip resistant outsoles which make them more work appropriate.

For example, here is the slip-resistant outsole on my Crocs Bistro clog:

crocs-bistro-outsole
slip-resistant-crocs

That said, these special slip-resistant outsoles do add a little bit of weight. If you don’t like this outsole, the Crocs Specialist II clogs have a closed toe, and don’t have these special outsoles and, instead, have the more traditional type of Crocs outsole.

Are Crocs Closed Toe Shoes?

If you are wondering whether or not Crocs qualify as closed toe shoes, that will likely just come down to the interpretation of your specific employer. In most cases, ventilated Crocs styles are not considered to be closed toe because they don’t offer the spill protection that non-vented shoes do.

crocs-specialist-side

But the Crocs we have discussed in this article that do not have ventilation will likely qualify as a closed toe work shoe (but, again, always verify with your employer first). Just make sure to consider whether or not you also need a closed-heel shoe.

Closed Heel Crocs

Most styles of Crocs have an open-heel design with a pivoting or adjustable heel strap. Those types of Crocs are not considered to be closed heel shoes.

As we have discussed throughout, certain styles of Crocs are made with a taller heel cup which meets certain workplace standards. Here is a look at how the taller heel cup of my Crocs Specialist II clogs (right) compares to the Crocs Classics heel (left):

crocs-specialist-heel

But if you need a true closed-heel work clog, then the Crocs On-the-Clock slip-on clog will likely be your best option. It has a slip-on design without an open heel or heel strap. Here is a look at mine:

crocs-on-the-clock-side

How Much Do Closed Toe Crocs Weigh?

One of the main drawbacks to wearing Crocs without holes is they do weigh a bit more than other types of ventilated Crocs. Overall, the difference is minimal, and all types of Crocs are reasonably lightweight and easy to wear.

But, if you want to see how these closed toe Crocs compare to other types of Crocs regarding weight, you can see the comparison table below (I bolded the closed-toe options), or visit my article that discusses the weight of Crocs.

Do They Make Safety Toe Crocs?

If you are searching for safety toe Crocs clogs, these types of Crocs currently do not exist. Yes, Crocs does make several types of work clogs, but they do not currently make a steel toe or a composite toe option.

Crocs Without Holes: Sizing Help

Let me just say this: when I recently tried nine different types of Crocs, I was a bit surprised how much difference there was in sizing. Although the large majority of Crocs fit true to size, I did find exceptions.

The two main types of Crocs fits you need to know are relaxed fit and roomy fit. The roomy fit will be the widest toe box, but it is important to note that both of these fits are wider than most types of shoes. Crocs clogs are known for a comfortable, wider fit.

One thing I would encourage your to do is to visit my Crocs sizing guide where I discuss at length my experiences with Crocs sizing, and offer comparison sizing photos like the ones posted below:

Ultimately, depending on the type of Crocs without holes you choose, the fit will vary. In my experience, Crocs clogs have a wide fit, but the overall length of Crocs is what I would describe as average (meaning you can find brands that fit longer, and brands that fit shorter).

When browsing through the different types of Crocs, be sure to note the fit. Again, the roomy fit is Crocs widest fit, and the relaxed fit will be less roomy (but still expect the relaxed fit to be wider than most types of shoes). If you will be wearing your closed toe Crocs on the job, making sure you have a secure fit will be crucial.
