Detailed Review of How Each Clog Fits
Since most clogs made by Crocs fit true to size in terms of length, the shoe’s width will be the focus of the review. Nevertheless, we still flagged the models that are longer than the measurement stated on the brand’s size charts.
|All Terrain||Roomy but true to size|
|Baya||Roomy but true to size|
|Bistro Pro||Runs big|
|Classic||Roomy but true to size|
|Crocband||Roomy but true to size|
|Crush||True to size|
|Hiker||Roomy but true to size|
|Lite Ride||True to size|
|Neria Pro II||Runs big|
|Offroad||True to size|
|On-the-Clock||Roomy but true to size|
|Specialist II||Runs big|
|Yukon Vista||Roomy but true to size|
While the All-Terrain clogs are designed with a roomy fit, their back straps are adjustable. This allows the wearer to tighten the fitting on the back and prevent the shoes from jiggling when walking.
Classic and Baya clogs feature the same roomy fit. The only difference is that the latter has vein-like patterns on the uppers and the side vents spell the word “Crocs”.
Length-wise, the Baya is true to size. While its width is slightly bigger than most other Crocs product lines, there’s no need to up or downsize the Baya.
3. Bistro & Bistro Pro
Both the Bistro and Bistro Pro are unisex, catering to professionals in the healthcare, food, and hospitality industries.
That said, these models run big in terms of length and width. However, the Pro features adjustable heel straps that allow you to loosen or tighten the fit.
As Crocs’ first product, the Classic clogs did not just define the brand’s style—they also became known for their roomy fit. As we said earlier, if you own one of these, you can use them as a good baseline for comparison when ordering other Crocs clogs, as they are true to size.
Unlike the Classic and Baya, the Crocband clogs are not as roomy. If you have wide feet, these may feel a bit snug, but the length remains true to size.
Don’t let the Crush’s chunky looks fool you. They don’t run bigger than the Classic. Except for the elevated soles, they fit the same as most Crocs clogs so you don’t need to order a different size.
Based on consumer reviews on Reddit and e-Commerce sites, the Echo clogs run big, so it’d be wise to order a size down. However, since there is no option for Crocs half sizes, some say wearing one size smaller can feel a tad too snug.
Similar to the Classic, the Hiker clogs are roomy but you can readjust the tightness using the back and instep straps. This way, you can trek in them securely.
Considering their silhouette, the LiteRide clogs are visibly slimmer than the other models featured here. Nevertheless, you don’t need to go a size up or down, since they are designed with a relaxed fit.
10. Neria Pro II
The Neria Pro II may look like a pair of flats but this model is shelved under the clog section. Since many of the brand’s shoes are unisex, shoppers often ask, “Do women’s Crocs run big or small?”
In short, the Neria Pro II runs big, so I’d suggest ordering one size down, regardless of whether you’re buying the shoes for males or females.
Even though they offer ample wiggle room for your toes, the Offroad clogs are equipped with adjustable heel straps. Still, many users find them big, so you may want to opt for one size down if you want a snug fit.
According to the product description, On-the-Clock clogs are constructed with a relaxed fit. Unlike the others, these may feel snug and secure to wear. This design is intentional because they are enclosed from front to back.
13. Specialist II
Most users find the Specialist II clogs running bigger than the other models. Some even say that they are more spacious than the Bistro and Bistro Pro. At any rate, you’ll have to get a size smaller than your usual.
14. Yukon Vista
Judging by their wide uppers and toe caps, the Yukon Vista men’s clogs are roomy but their length reflects the exact measurement on the brand’s size guide. Therefore, you don’t need to order one size down.

1. Roomy fit
The Classic clog is the perfect example of how the Crocs’ roomy fit should feel like. This is consistent with the Crocs sizing reviews—as many users use the Classic clog as a baseline to determine their clog sizes.
You know that the size suits you when the sides of your feet and your toes barely hit the uppers. Indeed, these are spacious but they will not fall off your feet thanks to pivoting back straps.
2. Relaxed fit
As with any Crocs footwear, your toes will not come into contact with the front side of the uppers with relaxed-fitting shoes. But depending on whether you have wide or narrow feet, the sides may touch the shoe material.
Another feature that sets relaxed-fitting shoes apart is that some may come with adjustable straps or laces.
3. Standard fit
If you prefer something snugger, the standard-fitting shoes may just be for you. Though spacious around the toe area, the design of the footwear hugs the arch, sides, and top part of your feet.
