I read the article about clogs and wondered what your opinion of Croc type shoes is. Many have the features you encourage, and I realize with their growing style selection not all fit the natural footwear concept. For a basic roc though, could you share your opinion?

Also, any word on children’s correct toes? My daughter (11) needs them very much. She currently wear size 4 still from the children’s sizes (not yet women’s size yet).

Thank you!

Hi, Dana,

Thank you for your message. We were early adopters of Crocs back when they were the only foot-healthy shoe option available, and we still like certain models of Crocs, especially the Rx Relief model, though many models no longer support natural foot health (as you noted in your comment).

Children’s Correct Toes ( are now available on the Natural Footgear site! They are the “Small” size.

Kind regards,
Marty Hughes, DC
