I own nine different types of Crocs clogs so I can give you a nice perspective on what makes the Crocs Baya unique, and how Crocs Baya sizing compares to other Crocs clogs, and other popular shoes.

Crocs Baya Information
My Thoughts on Crocs Baya Clogs
Crocs Baya Weight
My size 12 men’s Crocs Baya clogs weigh 0.43 pounds per shoe. This makes these Crocs Baya clogs tied for the most lightweight Crocs that I have tried (tied with Crocs Classics). Here I am weighing my Crocs Baya clogs size 12:
Below is a table comparing how the Crocs Baya weight compares to the other Crocs clogs that I have tried. All the Crocs weights listed below are based off of one size 12 men’s shoe. I also provided links to those clogs in case you want more information on them:

Crocs Baya Design
- Extra Venting – These Crocs Baya clogs have a little bit extra venting when compared to the Crocs Classic Clogs. Now, to be clear, the difference is minimal, but these Crocs Baya clogs have “Crocs” spelled along the outside of the shoe, which creates a small bit of extra venting. This “Crocs” spelling is only on the outside of the shoe:
- Spine Detail – Another small design difference in the Crocs Baya vs Crocs Classics is these Crocs Baya clogs have almost a spine-like appearance across the top of the shoe. This is a bit different than the Classics which have a smooth top. Here is a look at the top of my Crocs Baya clogs:
- Design – The Crocs Baya clogs have the standard pivoting heel strap. As I mentioned earlier, they are very similar to the Crocs Classics except they have extra venting and the spine-like detail on the top of the clog. They use the same type of Crocs “Croslite” foam for a comfortable, lightweight design.
Potential Drawbacks to Consider
- Debris – These Crocs Baya clogs have ventilation holes that allow water and small debris to drain, and keep the shoe very breathable in hot weather. But, it is fair to point out that these ventilation holes also create opportunities for debris like small rocks to enter the shoe. Something to consider if you will be using these for outdoor recreation.
- No LiteRide – I personally love the Crocs LiteRide insoles, and although these Crocs Baya clogs have the same comfortable “CrosLite” foam cushioning common to Crocs Classics, they don’t have the LiteRide insole. If you are unfamiliar with the LiteRide insole, it provides extra foam cushioning under the foot. The LiteRide insole is offered in several Crocs clogs.

In the video below, I tried to capture how soft these LiteRide insoles are (again, the Baya does not have LiteRide insoles):
Crocs Baya Sizing
In my experience, the Crocs Baya fits true to size. It has what Crocs calls a “roomy” fit, which is their roomiest, widest toe box. Don’t expect Crocs Baya clogs (or really any Crocs clogs) to fit narrow.
Crocs Baya clogs have a wide design, but I found the length of the Crocs Baya clogs to be true to size and pretty consistent when compared to other popular shoes. I’d describe the overall length of these clogs as average (meaning some shoes run smaller, some shoes run bigger).
Below are comparison photos I took for Crocs Baya sizing. As you can see, the toe box area is wider than most other types of shoes.

Where to Buy Crocs Baya Clogs
The Crocs Baya Clogs are very similar to the Crocs Classic Clogs, but they have extra ventilation holes for more breathability and more water release. The ventilation ports down the side spell the word “Crocs”. Just like the Crocs Classic Clogs, these Baya Clogs have an open heel with pivoting heel strap.
These Crocs Baya Clogs tied the Crocs Classic Clogs as the most lightweight Crocs that I tried. My size 12 men’s Crocs Baya Clogs weigh 0.43 pounds per shoe, delivering you an ultra-lightweight, breathable clog. The Crocs Baya has a roomy toe box just like the Crocs Classics.
This is the current price of these Crocs Baya Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). In my experience, these Crocs Baya clogs fit true to size.
