Do you have supremely slender and narrow feet? This may come as a surprise, but Crocs have options for narrow feet. In this article, you’ll find out which are the best Crocs for narrow feet.
Are Crocs good for narrow feet?
Crocs are not the best for narrow feet. Although they have “standard fit” styles that are designed for narrow feet, most Crocs styles are better suited for people with wide feet.
In my experience, Crocs simply don’t work for narrow feet. I tried the classic clogs a few years ago and they were massive on me. It convinced me that they were only suitable for wider feet.
You probably already noticed the round wide toe-box. This will allow for too much foot movement inside of the shoes which can lead to blisters, calluses, and corns.
If you plan to wear Crocs without socks, size them down one size so they won’t be loose on your foot. But, if you wear them with thick winter socks, it will be okay to order your usual size.
If you have narrow feet and would like to purchase regular-style clogs, consider sizing down. In my experience, as the size goes up, the width goes up as well.
Fortunately, there are some Crocs suitable for narrow feet.
Best Crocs for narrow feet
In terms of fit, Crocs have three styles: roomy, relaxed, and standard fit styles. The “standard” fit offers a more snug (but not tight) fit than the “roomy” or “relaxed” styles.
You can expect the sides, top, and arch area of the shoe to comfortably hug your feet, and your heel should rest securely without the shoe riding up or down.
Crocs with standard fit styles should conform to fit your foot securely with minimal or no slipping as you walk. Here are the best Crocs for narrow feet, designed for men, women, and kids:
1. Crocs Literide 360 Clog (Unisex)
Whether you are a man or woman, the best Crocs for narrow feet is the Literide 360 Clog. It adopts a similar look to the regular style Crocs but has a slimmer and narrower fit.
Here’s what a customer had to say about these Crocs:
“These fit as expected. I do think they are slightly narrow, which is something I have never experienced in shoes before but they are very comfortable. I can wear them for 10+ hours and run around the pharmacy without a problem.”– Jaz
For someone with narrow feet, I love the Literide clogs. They are comfortable and feel a little confined around the toe area, but I’d rather that than feel like they’re going to fall off.
That said, all types of Crocs are designed to feel “roomy” to begin with, so you shouldn’t expect these Crocs to hug your feet, especially if you have super narrow feet.
But if you are looking for clog-style Crocs to accommodate skinny feet, the Literide 360 Clog is by far the best option available. The toe box area is not as big as regular Crocs.
If you have the means, please consider trying these clogs in-store. You’ll have a better feel of how each pair feels on your foot. Then, you can consider sizing down for a tighter fit.
2. Crocs Santa Cruz Loafers (Men)
Another option for narrow feet is the Santa Cruz Loafers. They’re not necessarily waterproof like most Crocs (because of the fabric), but they do provide the same lightweight feel and comfort.
The Santa Cruz Loafers are men’s slip-on shoes that offer a sleek and modern silhouette but still offer easy on and off. Each pair is topped off with a nice layer of canvas fabric.
While these loafers do not provide the narrowest fit, they are sleeker than regular-style Crocs. Just one look and you’ll see how streamlined and narrow the shape of the shoes is.
At one point, I was tired of my house moccasins falling apart, so I took a chance on these Crocs loafers (as they were cheaper at the time), and I am so glad I did.
Chances are, I would never go back to wearing moccasins again. Now I wear these every day around the house and have found myself wearing them to the store or to run errands.
Because I have narrow feet, I find them comfortable with or without socks. The textured footbed feels odd at first but does a great job of promoting circulation in my feet and feels great.
Moreover, the fabric breathes, unlike the rubber material on regular Crocs. Mine got dirty, especially since I wear them daily, but I have no regrets. I love these narrow Crocs loafers.
3. Crocs Freesail Clog (Women)
The best Crocs for women with narrow feet is, without a doubt, the Freesail Clog. Unlike the regular Crocs style, these clogs offer a standard fit (which is very narrow).
Due to the narrow fit, the Freesail Clog does not rely on the strap to secure your foot. Instead, it relies on its narrow shape to hug your foot and prevent itself from slipping off.
My friend who has super narrow feet said that the Freesail Crocs fit her best.
“I have very narrow feet, so these are the only Crocs that fit me. I hate that I can’t find them anymore except very rarely. I assume they are discontinued.”– Dee K.
However, like what the customer said, it’s hard to find them in stores now. It’s very sad to know that the Freesail style is being discontinued. So buy them when you find them asap!
4. Crocs Swiftwater Sandal (Women)
Another alternative if you are a woman with narrow feet is the Swiftwater Sandal. This pair of Crocs is the perfect footwear especially if you love the open-toe design.
These sandals for women with narrow feet are incredibly lightweight and fun to wear. The flexible material of Crocs is perfect for when you’re on the go or just hanging out.
Unlike the regular Crocs, these sandals offer a standard fit (which is very narrow). In fact, Crocs recommends ordering a size up to the next largest whole size for people with normal feet.
A friend of mine who has narrow feet said she loves these sandals. They are light, comfortable, and effortless to take care of because everything just washes off (since they’re waterproof).
However, my friend also said that there are rumors these Swiftwater Sandals will be discontinued. Let’s just hope that you can snatch them before they are gone forever.
If you do decide to buy these Crocs, go to Amazon. The Crocs official store provides 21 different color options for these Swiftwater Sandals. They are narrow and go well with anything.
5. Crocs Kids’ Bump It Clog (Kids)
After long hours of research, I’ve finally found the perfect Crocs for kids with narrow feet. Introducing the Bump It Clog, which is much narrower than the conventional classic clog design.
My daughter is a 4.5 US size and these clogs fit perfectly with room for growth. She is really pleased to be able to wear Crocs again after missing out for the last two summers.
Other reviewers said that the opening is too narrow; that is by design so that the shoe does not slip off easily. I love the fact that these clogs have a tighter fit to ensure they stay on her feet.
I think the shoe version is a great alternative to the Crocs clog look. They serve the purpose of staying through run and play, yet they can also get wet and would easily dry without smelling.
