In this Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide Review I want to highlight the design features that separate the Crocs Bistro Pro Clog from the Crocs Classic Clog. I own nine different types of Crocs clogs so I can give you a nice perspective on what makes the Crocs Bistro Pro unique, and how Crocs Bistro Pro sizing compares to other Crocs clogs, and other popular shoes.

Crocs Bistro Pro Information
My Thoughts on Crocs Bistro Pro Clogs
Crocs Bistro Pro Weight
My size 12 men’s Crocs Bistro Pro clogs weigh 0.83 pounds per shoe. This makes these Crocs Bistro Pro clogs one of the heaviest Crocs that I have tried. Here I am weighing my Crocs Bistro Pro clogs size 12:
Below is a table comparing how the Crocs Bistro Pro weight compares to the other Crocs clogs that I have tried. All the 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 Bistro Design
- No Venting – My Crocs Bistro clogs have no ventilation which makes them more appropriate for work environments than other types of ventilated clogs. They also have a thicker metatarsal area to help protect from things like spills. Here is a look at the closed-toe design on my Crocs Bistro Clogs:
- Slip Resistant – The Crocs Bistro clogs have a slip-resistant outsole tread pattern which makes them better for work environments. This is something that Crocs Classic clogs do not have. Here is a look at the outsole slip-resistant tread on mine:
- Adjustable Strap – The Crocs Bistro Pro clogs have an adjustable heel strap, which makes them unique compared to the normal Crocs Bistro clogs, and the Crocs Classic Clogs. The adjustable heel strap allows you to customize the strap for a more secure fit. Here is a look at the adjustable strap on my clogs:
Raised Heel – These Crocs Bistro Pro clogs have a higher heel when compared to Crocs Classic Clogs. This higher heel helps meet certain workplace standards (think of it like a heel cup). Here is a comparison of my (left) Crocs Bistro Pro vs Crocs Classic heel (right):
- LiteRide Insole – I personally love the Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide insoles, and this is a great option if you are looking to add extra comfort to your Crocs. The LiteRide insole is made of foam, but has a spongier feel to it than the normal foam material in Crocs Classics. In the video below, I tried to capture how soft the LiteRide insoles are:
Potential Drawbacks to Consider
- Breathability – Because these Crocs Bistro Pro clogs don’t have the standard Crocs ventilation holes, they won’t provide as much breathability as other types of Crocs. Obviously, some work environments demand a closed work shoe. But if you prefer breathability, there will be better options.
Crocs Bistro Pro Sizing
In my experience, the Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide fits true to size. It has what Crocs calls a “roomy” fit, which is their roomiest, widest toe box. Don’t expect Crocs Bistro Pro clogs (or really any Crocs clogs) to fit narrow.
Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide clogs have a wide design, but I found the length of these 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 Bistro Pro sizing. As you can see, the toe box area is wider than most other types of shoes. It is important to remember, the heel strap is adjustable in these clogs, which can make the fit customizable. All the shoes photo’d below are size 12 men’s shoes.
It’s important to note that, in my experience, the Crocs Bistro Pro clogs fit a bit longer than the Crocs Classic Clogs. I tried to capture that in the photo below.

Where to Buy Crocs Bistro Pro Clogs
This Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide Clog is a spin on the Crocs Bistro Clog we discussed above, but there are some significant differences here. This Bistro Pro features the LiteRide foam insoles which provide extra cushioning under the foot.
These Bistro Pro Clogs also have an adjustable heel strap so you can customize the fit for extra support when needed. These Clogs also have unique slip-resistant outsoles for extra grip. They do have the same roomy fit as the regular Crocs Bistro clogs, and are not ventilated.
This is the current price of these Crocs Bistro Pro Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs, visit my Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide Review.
