Although there are similarities, it is impossible to deny that there are significant differences when you compare the Crocs All Terrain vs Classic Clogs on things such as weight, sizing, and design. Quickly, this is what jumps out the most to me:

  • Crocs All Terrain, as the name would suggest, have a design better built to handle an outdoor environment. This includes an enhanced tread pattern and an adjustable heel strap.
  • Both styles have what Crocs calls a “roomy” fit (which is the widest fit they offer). In my experience, these styles have a similar fit, but the Crocs All Terrain has that adjustable heel strap, which means you can customize the fit as needed. At the bottom of the article I use real comparison photos to compare the sizing of these Crocs to the sizing of other popular shoes.
  • There is a difference in weight. My Crocs Classics weigh 0.43 pounds per shoe and my Crocs All Terrain weigh 0.56 pounds per shoe (based off size 12 men’s).
  • Both shoes have the same type of ventilation holes both on the top of the shoe, and on the sides.

I recently tried ten different types of Crocs. Just to give you an idea where Crocs Classics and Crocs All Terrain clogs compare to other styles regarding weight, I listed all of the weights below (weights based off one size 12 men’s shoe). You might take note that the Crocs Yukon Vista II (which is another popular outdoor-style clog) has the same weight as the All Terrain:

Crocs Classic vs All Terrain Clogs

Crocs Classic Clogs

Weight0.43 pounds

Fit Roomy

The Crocs Classic Clog is the traditional Crocs style, with a ventilated toe and an open heel with heel strap. It has a roomy toe box, but I found my normal sizing to fit true to size (just don’t expect a narrow fit).

This Crocs Classic shoe is very comfortable and lightweight. Out of the ten different types of Crocs clogs that I tried, the Crocs Classic tied for the most lightweight Crocs (my size 12 weighs 0.43 pounds per shoe).

The Crocs All-Terrain Clogs are a variation of the Crocs Classic Clogs, but with a couple small tweaks that make them more appropriate for outdoor recreation. These All-Terrain Crocs have enhanced tread for better grip in outdoor terrain.

These Crocs also have an adjustable heel strap that allows you to tighten the shoes better, which provides more secure support. These Crocs have a roomy fit just like the classic Crocs, and although they weigh a bit more due to the extra tread, they still have a very lightweight design.

Crocs All Terrain vs Classic Sizing

In my experience, all types of Crocs clogs have a wide fit design. But, it is important to note that Crocs are offered in two main types of fits: Roomy Fit and Relaxed Fit. Don’t expect either of these fits to be narrow, but the Roomy Fit is the widest option.

Both the Crocs Classics and the Crocs All Terrain have a “Roomy Fit”, which means they both have the widest fit available. I found the fit of these two clogs to have a very similar fit. The one thing you will want to consider is the Crocs All Terrain has the adjustable strap, so the fit is customizable.

Crocs Classic vs All Terrain Design

Ventilation

Despite other design differences, the ventilation holes on the Crocs Classics and Crocs All Terrain are the same. Both styles have top and side ventilation holes:

Tread

The Crocs All Terrain clogs have enhanced tread for better grip in outdoor terrain. Not only is the tread patter on the All Terrain a little bit deeper, there are also individual lugs around the edge of the outsole that the Crocs Classic does not have.

Below is the tread of my Crocs Classics (white, top) compared to my All Terrain (navy, bottom):

Heel Strap

The enhanced tread is not the only design detail that makes the Crocs All Terrain more outdoor friendly. These Crocs All Terrain clogs also have an adjustable heel strap, which means you can tighten the fit to provide a more secure fit across all types of terrain.

My Crocs Classic vs All Terrain Conclusion

The Crocs All Terrain will be the better choice if you plan to wear your Crocs outside, and on something other than a predictable, smooth surface. The Crocs All Terrain might make for a nice summer camping/fishing clog.

The adjustable strap allows you to secure the fit, and the enhanced tread provides grip.

The Crocs Classic is lighter in weight, and has the pivoting heel strap, which means you don’t have to strap and un-strap it. It would be the better choice who want something simple and easy to kick off to wear around the house and for errands.
