Crocs have become more and more popular since their humble beginnings. Crocs come in so many different styles and colors, and people want to make their Crocs unique and different that people around them. Many healthcare workers use Crocs for work because of their comfort and support.
So, when you go to work and everyone around you is wearing Crocs, you might want to stand out. How can you make Custom Crocs?
The primary method to customize your Crocs is with Jibbitz. These small charms can be attached to your Crocs using the holes. If your Crocs don’t have holes, then you could customize your Crocs by hydro-dipping them.
Generally speaking, Crocs have been customized with Jibbitz. There are many different types of Jibbitz that you can purchase to show off your personality while wearing your Crocs.
When I started searching for different ways to customize my Crocs, I was really surprised and how creative people are and the different ways other people have customized their Crocs.
Jibbitz is just the beginnings. Let's explore some of these options.

DIY Procedures to Customizing Your Crocs Shoes
Why do you need to spend a big amount of money on designer Crocs if you can just do the customization of Crocs by yourself?
Making your own designs or styles and customizing your own Crocs based on your preference is more fun than relying on the finished product designs in the market.
Before you jump into making changes to your Crocs, let’s review the options. Because although these options might sound good, however, because of the closed-cell resin (Croslite) that Crocs are made from, many dyes, markers and acrylic paint just doesn’t still to your shoes for very long!
Let’s review some options first. Below are some of the tips and suggestions that you can consider when making your own custom Crocs designs:
Paint Your Crocs
If you decide to paint some pairs of Crocs shoes, then you might think that acrylic paint would do the trick. Nope!
Here is a video showing someone who used acrylic paint. His Crocs looked pretty good initially, but the paint just didn’t last!

Another option could be to use some permanent markers to create some artistic Crocs..
Here is another example of someone using permanent marker to create some cool looking Crocs. They don't show wear and tear, but I thought his finished Crocs looked really good... Watch this YouTube video:
Get Inspired by Etsy
I really love Etsy. There are many local artisans who create wonderful pieces including jewelry, shirts, art, Jibbitz and even custom Crocs. Here are a couple of examples:
Red Starlight Crocs (this Nurse loves her Crocs!)
Fuzzy Pirate Crocs (very creative use of Jibbitz here)
Goth Crocs (there are several different versions of these Crocs, very cool!)
Wedding Crocs (there's over 20,000 reviews for these Crocs - Wow!)
As you can see, you can be as creative as you want to be. The sky is the limit when it comes to customizing your Crocs.
Now, if you want to paint your Crocs, then I believe this could the best option!
Hydro-Dipping Your Crocs
Hydro-Dipping seems to be an effective way to “paint” your Crocs and this seems to provide a longer lasting solution.
You can buy Hydro-Dipping stencils, or you can spray different colors on water and dip your Crocs.
Here are a couple of videos that show people doing this.
This YouTube video shows a few different shoes being hydro-dipped.
