    "crocs", a type of flip flop?

    Hi,
    Is "crocs" a type of flip flops, or just a brand name? (It comes from crocodile, I guess.)
    What is the name for a type of flip flop which is covered in front?


    Many thanks.

    As Birdeen mentioned, "Crocs" are a brand name of shoe/sandal. Not quite flip-flops, although they do tend to make that flip-floppy "slap" noise on your heel when you walk. As for a flip-flop with a covered front, there are many different names, depending upon the specific design of the shoe....sometimes even bedroom slippers fit that description.

    Thanks a lot. What if they're used for outdoor purposes? (still covered at the front!)
