If customers wore the crocs everyday doing normal day to day activities, the shoes will typically last between 3 and 5 years due to the feet growing people are okay with this happening especially for children as they are still growing. With less frequent wear (around in the garden and small walks) and having proper care of the shoes allows the shoe to last up to 10 years. In some cases if just worn round the house the shoes could last for even longer.
