    Good this is my favourite footwear.

    BTW I search for made in Vietnam, Crocs and then only buy. My 2 cents contribution to address the trade imbalance.

    You may just contributed more, since those garment factory or shoe factories in vietnam are usually run by Chinese owners. They got more profit to hire lower paid vietnam workers.

    Ah, but then the shipment comes from Vietnam and the payment also goes there from India. Better for Vietnam.

    I have a genuine croc and I use it as a slipper at home as a replacement for the flip flops that are constantly requiring their straps to be changed.

    Crocs seem to last a lifetime.

    However, it is too ungainly to be seen in public with it.

    I think the crocs sold on the footpath are the Chinese ones since they are dirt cheap and the genuine ones are way too expensive.

    @Ray Sir, considering the life that you get from Crocs, it is more economical to go for the genuine stuff. Also now they have many new designs which are closer to our regular Bata Sandals.

    My younger daughter was so disturbed by my wearing crocs in public that she and her mother bought me a new pair of shoes.:truestory:
