It was lovely until the shoe disintegrated. Just me and hundreds of washed up jellyfish. Quite funny actually, a few sunbed operators came running down the beach to try to entice me on to their sunbeds. I would guess beach vendors outnumbered beach users by 20 to 1. I will complete the trip (test driving the repaired Crocs :shock: ) tomorrow or Sunday, so maybe a few extra people using the beach on those days.

Oh no, Mrs BB must be a closet Ford Mechanic. The repaired shoe lasted until Sailom. Crazy thing is, my other indestructible Croc suffered a similar fate as I passed Chiva Som. :laugh:

Today's other problem was despite using berlinmichael's tide tables, the tide forgot to go out today, and climbing walls in skeleton Crocs was not easy - a couple of times, I thought I was going for a swim. :shock:

Or if no other solution take your Zippo and heat both surfaces to almost melting, and then sandwich them together. :mrgreen: Nothing to lose before you throw them away if no other method works.

The skeleton version are actually very comfortable without the soles. Absolutely useless for walking on slanted walls though.

There's a buy one get one free offer in crocs in the sportsmall at Bluport (by the lifts at the back of the store). I thought of you when I saw it earlier. Chances are they have the same at MV as well?

Problem is, they rarely have shipyard size. That aside, the medics say I shouldn't wear them. I'll wear the ones I have occasionally because they're so damned comfortable, but I won't buy more. Thanks anyway.

You cannot use super glue on something that flexes. A good contact adhesive, or I have used clear silicon on material like that. For sure the shoe man should be able the fix them.

Yes, the first shoe went about 400 yards before becoming 2. The shock was the 2nd one going the same way. Not like Crocs at all.

Thread getting away from the beach, but do not blame the Crocs. I have had expensive leather riggers boots come unglued sitting in a cupboard before even being used! A pair of "trainers" did the same thing recently, although they were in use!
