Crocs have been synonymous with fun because of their versatility — they can be worn on the beach, while running around, even in the office. If you’re an avid Crocs wearer, I think you might know that nothing beats the comfort of Crocs. Their versatility has also raised some serious questions: are crocs edible?
Yes, Crocs clogs are edible. Although Crocs are not advertised as edible, still you can eat them. Many people think that they’re made of rubber due to their easy to clean and durable properties. But that’s not true. Crocs are made of the brand’s proprietary material called “Croslite”. Croslite is 100% organic and doesn’t contain any toxic substances or chemicals that plastic or rubber would have.

What is Croslite Material of Crocs Made Of?
Croslite is closed-cell resin foam with a lightweight, soft density and provides the buoyancy that we all know and love. Croslite material keeps its shape and can maintain its softness.
Croslite is made out of a polymer that is extracted from crude oil. Being a closed-cell foam, Croslite doesn’t absorb water. In this way, the Croslite material inhibits bacterial growth, makes them hygienic and free from any kind of odor.
I’ve found this great video for you to learn more about this unique Croslite material.
In this way, this property of Croslite justifies that it is safe to eat Crocs as there aren’t any bacteria that could embed in the shoes and make them stinky due to moisture. However, there might be some germs on the footbed surface or upper of your Crocs that could be transferred from your feet. So, it would be a safe step to sterilize your Crocs by heating them to a specific temperature.
How to Cook and Eat Crocs Shoes?
Crocs, the clog-like foam shoes, are hard to digest when you eat them directly. It’s hard to digest every time you eat Crocs shoes. The shoes might be squeezed into your mouths, and you may have the feeling of being bloated at the end of eating them.
So, if you cook your crocs like a regular chicken or fish dish, i.e. cut them into chunks, they will be less likely to cause digestive problems. Furthermore, I’d advise you to boil your Crocs in water before eating them. In this way, the heat will kill the germs and wipe out any sort of odor in Crocs. Also, heating will help to soften the Crocs so that you can easily chew them. But, make sure that the heating temperature should be less than 50 degrees celsius as it can burn and damage its chemical structure.
Can Crocs be Cut Easily?
Yes, you can cut your Crocs clogs easily with a sharp knife. Crocs are elastic and compressible, just like raw meat. There is no metal shank or any other structural system inside the Crocs clogs. So, you can easily cut them into small chunks for cooking.

Are Crocs shoes made from Crocodile’s Skin?
No, Crocs are only made of Croslite foam. There was a time when Crocs have become a victim of criticism for being non-vegetarian. Both the shoes and slippers were made from Croslite, which was rumored to be made from the skin of crocodile’s. The shoes did not have any tag saying if it is veg or not, but they later came and clarified that it is not, as it was the only polymer made from resin.
Crocs name was selected for the brand because they hold characteristics to perform both on land and water like a multi-environmental nature of crocodiles.
Do Crocs Produce Bad Smell?
Crocs are made of an ordor-resistant Croslite material that does not quickly get wet and cause a smell right out of the box. However, Crocs material is not breathable. That’s why they have big ventilation holes to allow airflow.
So, if you wear Crocs for a long time, they’re likely to get smelly due to the sweat of your feet. As a result, your Crocs start smelling stinky. That’s why whenever you put off your Crocs, wash them with soap and water and placed them in the sunlight for some time. Due to their material, it’s easier to clean them with a damp cloth as they get dried right away.
