If you want to bring an old pair of your kid's Crocs back to life (or if you want to hand-down an older pair to a younger sibling) wipe them down with some Armor All after you wash them. They'll go from that dried-out dull to an almost-new finish. Crocs makes something called "CrocsButter" (which comes with a sponge applicator that in my experience dries out rather quickly) but chances are you've already got some Armor All hanging around in the garage. And if you don't, at least you can spend your money on something that might come in handy for other stuff.
A few weeks ago I was sent a pair of these new canvas shoes from Lugz for review. I've never reviewed clothing before, let alone footwear, but they looked pretty cool so I decided to try them out.
The pair I got were in the "Sparks" style, which basically is a casual canvas sneaker. Lugz calls it a "Moc toe design" but to me they look like a low-cut summertime version of Clarks' Desert Boots. You can get them in eight different color combinations, but I got dark tan/white which looks good with jeans (and I'm hoping shorts when the weather gets better).
After wearing them for a while, the only issue I had with them really is that they are about a half-size too big. It wasn't that big of a deal for me, but there was a little more room in the toe than I normally would have wanted. (Actually, the Lugz website now suggests ordering a 1/2 size smaller than normal, so I guess my pair wasn't an aberration). Being decidedly casual, there isn't a lot of support in the insole so I probably wouldn't wear them if I was planning on walking any long distances or being on my feet for a long time. But for shoes to kick around during the summertime in, they seem great.
