Once upon a time, Crocs were the punchline of many a joke. Some even called them 'the ugliest shoes to have ever been invented'. Then, pop stars like Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande wore them. Soon followed by half of Hollywood, they became the height of comfortable fashion. If you have tried them, you will know. Crocs are unbelievably comfortable and very easy to slip on - making them the perfect shoe for kids. Crocs can be worn all year round because of their wide range of styles. Here's our list of the best crocs for kids.

Crocs are versatile shoes and can be worn as slip-on shoes without the straps. Alternatively, use them with the strap behind the foot for extra support. It gives children the independence of putting their shoes on by themselves. By the time your child is ready for school they are expected to be able to dress themselves. Crocs are a fantastic shoe to start learning those all-important life skills. As a parent, you may want to opt for more supportive shoes if your child is headed to the park or on a day out for long periods.

Types of crocs

Clogs - Crocs first gained popularity with their clog-style shoes. They are made from a lightweight durable material. You can opt for the original Croc, which will keep your feet feeling nice and cool with its air holes or a fur-lined Croc for a more toasty feel. These can now be customised with Jibbitz brand charms (more about those later because we love them).

Sandals - Crocs have a selection of adjustable, easy to wear sandals designed with little hands in mind, so they are easy to pop on by secure to wear.

Rain Boots - The Croc rain boot is like the traditional wellington boot, but they have handles. We absolutely love this feature - getting wellies on and off little feet can be very challenging.
