Do ya figger yer heel-strap-loose crocs are fit only for scrap?
I like wearing my aged crocs in the garden and a while ago the pin that secures one end of the heel strap pulled out of the body of the shoe.
It seems that there'd been a small crack develop by the hole, so it was easy for the pin to slip out.
I have a short piece of telephone cable that contained about 3 - 4 dozen fine, insulated copper wires, in the basement.
I cut off about a foot of one of those wires, ran it around the pin that holds the heel-strap to the shoe, in the space between the heel-strap and the body of the croc, then ran it forward and through a couple of holes at the front of the instep, then twisted the wires together.
I found that it didn't hold well, so twisted the wire once around the pin, and it stayed much better.
However, as the hole in the body of the shoe got slightly bigger, the pin slipped out more frequently, and when I was pushing my way through some tall weeds while weeding, the wire got lost.
So I go another wire and wrapped it around the pin on the inside of the shoe, then up through a couple of holes in front of the instep, and it seems to hold much better.
Maybe it'll see me through the rest of the gardening season.
Should have bought a new pair of crocs last year at the end-of-season sale, looks like.
They had some on sale last month .... but they were kids sizes ...
... and I haven't achieved second childhood yet ...
... or so I claim.
