I ordered a pair of blue Sanuk's awhile back thanks to this thread. I ****ing love these shoes. They're so comfortable. It's a shoe, it's a sandal, it's the best of both worlds. I'm always getting compliments on them. I might buy a different pair sometime in the future.
So today my boyfriend and I went to Dick's to look at shoes and camping gear and I stumbled apon a huge section of crocs in many different styles and colors. I was so overwhelmed by not seeing a sea of ugly crocs. There were flip flops, sandals, and some other shoes that looked like they were trying to imitate flats. I was impressed and now finally I'll give crocs a chance and see if they really are as comfortable as everyone says.
^^^I don't know - after I looked at a close up of them - seems like the straps may detach from the sole. one of the major advantages of the ugly crocs is that they are basically all one piece of foam/plastic - except for the strap - so they take alot of wear and tear
LOL and I don't even own a pair of crocs and I am talking about how perfect they are for 'roo
Well, I got my beer cozy flip flops today. Pretty nice. Good arch support, and I like how they don't come off easily. Oh, the times I've lost a flip flop walking up the steps to class, all the people who laughed and ridiculed and pointed at me...never again.
LOL. Everyone seems to forget that it can rain at Bonnaroo. 2004 was monsoon season and 2005 had some fun storms. If the big storms hit, expect a lot of mud. 6" mud may suck the flip-flops, tivas, or crocs right off of your feet. If you have boots, bring 'em.
i was at walmart a few days ago and i saw a pair of tiva style sandles on clearance for $6 so i picked up 3 pair. they are very foot friendly. not the nicest things to look at but when they are going to be covered in dirt or mud most of the time who cares.
I'm sure we'll all be watching the weather when it gets closer to Bonnaroo so we'll have an idea then if it's going to be hot or rainy. Last year there was a thread posted a few weeks in advance to Bonnaroo with everyone updating it daily.

The missus and I do Tevas for the most part. My Birks gave me blisters last year. My main thing is to bring a super comfy pair of shoes for the ride home. For some reason my swollen, beat up dogs really feel good in a pair of loose sneakers on the 3+ hour drive to Frankfort.
Oh, and flops, while comfy, kick shit off the roads onto the backs of your legs and anything sharp and pointy will go right through them.
I wore these cheap flip flops that I've had for years last year. I couldn't wear any slip on shoe because when my feet get dirty I can't stand the feeling of the dirt being rubbed into my foot/shoe. Eeee-yuck. I don't know how people can wear socks when it is that hot out . . . my little feetsies need to breathe! I'd definitely go with just flip-flops again before crocs or anything else, but I'd make sure they had a more comfortable strap.
I love my Chacos. They are about the only thing I wear in the summer and fall. Even if it rains they will be great since they strap to your feet and if it is gets that muddy then I am just planning on rock'in the bare feet.

I just ordered a pair of Sanuks...thanks CARPEDM01...they look awesome and if they are as comfortable as you say then they will definately rock my world!!! I look forward to trying them out and I will post to let everyone know how they feel!
sanuks are easy to hose off. you can totally get them dirty and wash them. they are fairly thin and dry fairly quickly too.
if you cannot return the sanuks that are too small try this. take a straight razor or sharp knife and put some tiny cuts in the elastic part that makes the shoe fit. then put a couple of tiny cuts on each side of the ankle area. the shoes are already distressed and it doesnt make them look bad - actually its sorta cute. they wont rip out more as long as you make small cuts with a very sharp knife. if you are concerned about them ripping out just take a few stitches around the area to seal it. i did this to mine and now they fit PERFECTLY. if you cant fix them then you might try selling them on ebay.
