Recently when I set out to buy a pair of Crocs, I realized how difficult it was to find a simple list of the different types of Crocs available. So I decided to buy as many types of Crocs clogs as I could so that I could compare the different Crocs styles.

In this article, I will include pictures and details of the Crocs I own. Quickly, here’s what you need to know about these 11 types of Crocs clogs:

  • Crocs Classic – Traditional Crocs clog with ventilation, open heel, and heel strap. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Bistro – Similar to Crocs classic, but with closed toe and slip-resistant sole. (click here to view)
  • Crocs LiteRide – An athletic clog with a sleeker design and extra cushioning. (click here to view)
  • Crocs All-Terrain – Similar to Crocs Classic, but w/ extra tread & adjustable strap. (click here to view)
  • Crocs On-the-Clock – Enclosed toe, enclosed heel, slip-on clog for work. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Crocband – Similar to Crocs Classic, but with colorful, sportier design. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Specialist – Closed-toe work clog with taller heel cup and extra support. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Bistro Pro – Closed toe with adjustable strap and extra insole cushioning. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Baya – Made similar to Crocs Classic, but with different ventilation holes. (click here to view)
  • Crocs Yukon Vista – A vented clog with adjustable strap & faux leather detailing (click here to view)
  • Crocs Neria Pro – Women’s slip-resistant enclosed toe, enclosed heel work clog. (click here to view)

Although most types of Crocs clogs share similarities, there are distinct differences. For example, the ventilation will vary dramatically from clog to clog. Also, the type of heel and heel strap will also vary.

And, of course, you will want to consider the fit of different Crocs styles. Although most Crocs styles have a wide fit, there are some that are made to fit a bit slimmer (but don’t expect a narrow design).

Obviously, this list of Crocs styles may vary over time. I will do my best to keep this list updated, but browsing through the Crocs website prior to your purchase is never a bad idea.

In this article I want to briefly discuss all the Crocs styles that I have tried, and link out to my other resources regarding these Crocs. Also, at the end of the article we will discuss several things to consider when buying Crocs.

Different Types of Crocs

Crocs Classic Clogs

Weight0.43 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
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 types of Crocs that I tried, the Crocs Classic tied for the most lightweight (my size 12 weighs 0.43 pounds per shoe).

This is the current price of these Crocs Classic Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this style of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Classic Review.


Crocs Bistro Clogs

Weight0.73 pounds
ToeNot Vented
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy

The Crocs Bistro Clog is designed similar to the Crocs Classic, but has a few extra details that make it more work-appropriate. For example, it doesn’t have ventilation holes, and it has the slip-resistant outsole and a taller heel cup. All of these things make this clog a better work option than the Crocs Classic.

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. Because it lacks the ventilation holes, the Crocs Bistro shoe weighs a little bit more than the Crocs Classic (my size 12 weighs 0.73 pounds per shoe).

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 and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Bistro Review.

Crocs On-the-Clock Work Clogs

Weight0.84 pounds
ToeNot Vented
HeelClosed
Fit Relaxed

The Crocs On-the-Clock shoes are very different than other types of Crocs Clogs. This Crocs On-the-Clock shoe is designed for work, and because of that, it 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.

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.

This is the current price of these Crocs On-the-Clock Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs On-the-Clock Review.

Crocs Classic All-Terrain Clogs

Weight0.56 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy

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 (All Terrain vs Classic Crocs).

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.

This is the current price of these Crocs All-Terrain Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs All-Terrain Review.

Crocs Crocband Clogs

Weight0.60 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
Fit Relaxed

The Crocs Crocband Clogs are very similar to the Crocs Classic Clogs, but they have a sportier, more colorful design that gives this type of Crocs a different appearance. Yes, just like the Crocs Classic Clogs, these Crocband Clogs have ventilation around the toe box, and have an open heel with heel strap.

But it is important to note that the ventilation is a bit different with these Crocband clogs, and doesn’t feature the side vents that the Crocs Classics have. Also, because these Crocband clogs have a “relaxed” fit, they aren’t quite as wide as the Crocs Classics that have a “roomy” fit.

This is the current price of these Crocs Crocband Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Crocband Review.

Crocs Specialist II Clogs

Weight0.60 pounds
ToeNot Vented*
HeelOpen*
Fit Roomy

The Crocs Specialist II Clogs are another type of Crocs work clog, and these clogs have a very similar design to the Crocs Classic Clogs (only they fit a bit looser). The version that I own are not ventilated, but they are also sold in a ventilated option.

Although these Specialist Clogs have an open heel, the heel is taller than normal Crocs (think of it like a heel cup) 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.

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 Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Specialist Review.

Crocs Baya Clogs

Weight0.43 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy

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). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs Baya Review.

Crocs Bistro Pro LiteRide Clogs

Weight0.83 pounds
ToeNot Vented
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy

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 the slip-resistant outsoles for extra grip. They do have the same roomy fit as the regular Crocs Bistro clogs, and are not ventilated.

Crocs LiteRide Clogs

Weight0.66 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
Fit Relaxed

The Crocs LiteRide Clogs are designed different than other Crocs styles. These LiteRide Clogs are ventilated, but the ventilation holes are much smaller than normal Crocs, which just gives these clogs a different appearance.

Overall, these LiteRide Clogs have a sleeker, more athletic design, and feature the LiteRide foam insoles for extra cushioning under the foot. Because these Crocs LiteRide Clogs have a “relaxed” fit, they aren’t quite as wide as the Crocs Classics that have a “roomy” fit.

This is the current price of these Crocs LiteRide Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about this type of Crocs and see sizing photos, visit my Crocs LiteRide Review.

Crocs Yukon Vista II Clogs

Weight0.56 pounds
ToeVented
HeelOpen
Fit Roomy

The Crocs Yukon Vista Clog is shaped much like the traditional Crocs Classics, but has several design differences. The faux leather detailing across the top gives it a unique, rugged design, and the adjustable heel strap allows you to customize the fit.

It lacks ventilation holes across the top, but does have the side ventilation holes, which helps increase air flow. It has a roomy toe box, but I found my normal sizing to fit true to size (just don’t expect a narrow fit).

My size 12 men’s Crocs Yukon Vista II clogs weigh 0.56 pounds per shoe. This makes these Crocs Yukon Vista II clogs tied for third lightest-in-weight out of the Crocs clogs that I tried.

This is the current price of these Crocs Yukon Vista Clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). In my experience, the Crocs Yukon Vista Clogs fit true to size.

How to Choose the Right Type of Crocs

Are Crocs Adjustable?

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, both the Crocs Bistro Pro clogs and the Crocs All Terrain clogs that I own use an adjustable heel strap which allows the fit to be customized.

Above is a photo of the adjustable heel strap on my Crocs All Terrain clogs. To read more about this issue, visit my article about adjustable Crocs.

Crocs Weight

Below is a table ranking the weights of the ten types of Crocs that I own. If you want to read more about weight, visit my article that discusses the weight of Crocs. Below, I also provided links to each clog in case you want more information on them:

Which Crocs Have the Most Cushion?

All Crocs clogs 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 styles of 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.

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. Click here to view LiteRide options available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com). If you want to read more about these insoles, visit my article about which Crocs have extra cushion.

Which Crocs are Best for Work?

Obviously, this can depend on the requirement of your job. Because I don’t know those requirements, it is impossible to give specific recommendations.

That said, Crocs does offer several types of clogs design for work environments. These types of Crocs are usually not vented which creates a closed toe for spill protection (there are also vented work options too).

Most styles of Crocs built for the workplace are made with slip-resistant outsoles that you don’t see on the Crocs Classic Clogs. For example, here is the slip-resistant outsole on my Crocs Bistro clog:

crocs-bistro-outsole
slip-resistant-crocs

Some types of clogs will also have a taller heel cup which can help meet certain work place standards. We discuss this more below, but if you want closed heel clog, the Crocs On-the-Clock clog will be your best option. To read more about work Crocs styles, visit my article about work Crocs.

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 there are several types of Crocs styles that are non-vented and will likely qualify as a closed toe work shoe (but, again, always verify with your employer first). For example, the Crocs Bistro clogs, Specialist Clogs, and On-the-Clock clogs we discussed earlier are all non-vented toes.

To read more about this issue, visit my article about closed toe Crocs.

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.

Some styles of Crocs (for example, the Crocs Specialist II Clogs we discussed earlier in the article) are made with a taller heel cup which meets certain workplace standards. Here is a look at how the taller heel cup compares to the Crocs Classics heel on the 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

To read more about this issue, visit my article about closed heel Crocs.

Types of Crocs Ventilation

The type of ventilation will vary in styles of Crocs clogs. The Crocs Classic Clogs have the ventilation holes on both the tops and the sides of the clog. Here is my Crocs Classic:

crocs-classic-side-2

Other types of Crocs will offer the ventilation on just the top of the clog. For example, the Crocs Crocband clogs are styled this way. Here are mine:

crocs-crocband-side-2

And then you can also find the Crocs LiteRide Clogs, that have a sleeker design than other types of Crocs, and feature smaller ventilation holes. Here are my Crocs LiteRide clogs:

crocs-literide-side

Crocs with Leather

We didn’t discuss it at length in this article, but if you are shopping for Crocs with leather material, you do have one option to consider. The Crocs Yukon Vista clogs use a faux leather material on the clog. Click here to view these Crocs Yukon Vista clogs available at Crocs.com (paid affiliate link takes you to Crocs.com).

Do They Make Safety Toe Crocs?

If you are searching for safety toe Crocs, 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.

Do Crocs Shrink in the Sun?

Although Crocs are obviously made for hot weather, if you leave them exposed to extreme heat and sun for long periods of time (think days and weeks), there can be a small bit of shrinking. I wouldn’t be too concerned about this, just try to store them inside, or in the shade.

Even exposing them to long periods of extreme heat in the backseat or trunk of a car may lead to a small amount of shrinking over time.

Crocs Sizing Help

If you search through the different types of Crocs, you will notice that many of them have a different fit. It used to be that Crocs offered three different types of fits: standard, relaxed, and roomy. But, in recent years, it has become harder to find styles of Crocs that use the standard fit, and I am not entirely sure Crocs offers it anymore.

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 types of Crocs 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). Buying Crocs styles that use the adjustable heel straps can also help you find a better fit.
