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

Crocs Classic Information
My Thoughts on Crocs Classic Clogs
Crocs Classic Weight
My size 12 men’s Crocs Classic clogs weigh 0.43 pounds per shoe. This makes these Crocs Classic clogs tied for the most lightweight Crocs that I have tried (tied with Crocs Baya). Here I am weighing my Crocs Classic clogs size 12:
Below is a table comparing how the Crocs Classic weight compares to the other Crocs clogs that I have tried (Crocs weight). 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 Classic Design
- Venting – These Crocs Classic clogs have a ventilation holes on both the top and the side of the toe box area. This ventilation not only helps air flow, it also allows debris and water to exit the shoe. Here is a look at the ventilation on my Crocs Classics:
- Heel Design – The Crocs Classic clogs have the standard open-heel design with pivoting heel strap. This pivoting heel strap is flexible, but not adjustable. Crocs does offer several types of adjustable heel strap clogs. If you prefer a customizable fit, the adjustable clogs may be the better option.
Potential Drawbacks to Consider
- Debris – These Crocs Classic 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 Classic clogs have the comfortable “CrosLite” foam cushioning common to Crocs, 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 the LiteRide insoles are (again, these are not included with the Classics):
Crocs Classic Sizing
In my experience, the Crocs Classic fits true to size. It has what Crocs calls a “roomy” fit, which is their roomiest, widest toe box. Don’t expect Crocs Classic clogs (or really any Crocs clogs) to fit narrow.
Crocs Classic clogs have a wide design, but I found the length of the Crocs Classic 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 Classic sizing. As you can see, the toe box area is wider than most other types of shoes. It is important to note, the heel strap is obviously where the heel will begin, so take that into account when using these comparison photos. All the shoes photo’d below are size 12 men’s shoes.
It’s important to note that the heel strap is made with a flexible material that does have some give to it. This makes the strap more forgiving and easier to fit with your unique foot size. In this video I tried to capture how flexible the heel strap is:
