    White crocs or "sport" sandals?

    I want to find some white crocs or "sport" type sandals for the girls for this summer. I don't care if they are the real crocs brand or not.
    I want them to be white so that they will look good no matter the outfit they wear. They have a pair of bright fuschia and bright purple sport type sandals right now and they look awful most of the time. We only have them because we got them for free with some store credit when they were clearanced out last fall.
    I've done some searching but I can't find what I want.

    I do find the real crocs brand in white in several styles but they are too pricy for me. I want to spend no more than $15 per pair, preferrably less.
    Like I said, I don't care if I have the real crocs brand as long as it's that kind of shoe, or a sport sandal similar to this.

    I tried searching for "white kids clogs" to hopefully find a croc type shoe just in an off brand or something, I know I wouldn't find an off brand by searching croc/crocs. I didn't find anything. Is there any other term to describe that kind of shoe that I can use in a search?

    Have you seen what I'm looking for anywhere?

    ETA, a little bit of color on them would be ok as long as it's not a huge distracting pattern. All white or mostly white is what I want. The white sandal in this listing would be fine, for example.

    We have light colored (although not white) crocs and ugh they look horrible after one wear! The dirt seems to stain the shoes and there is no getting it off! Thats just my two cents on white croc type shoes but I have a boy who seeks out mud, dirt, puddles and general grossness!

    Yeah, they do get dingy after a while, but they always match.
    We had an off brand the last two years but they are too small now and I can't find any others like them.

    I heard someone uses a magic eraser on their crocs then throws them in the dishwasher, haha. I assume it works but would not brave enough to try it myself if I had a pair.

    I'm bad at this type of stuff, but I would have thought any of the stores (Target, Walmart, Payless) would have knockoffs. I looked on the WM site and didn't find much though, so maybe not.

    We have a pair of plain light blue Dawgs for DS that someone found at a garage sale. We use them for around the house and in the backyard, but it's not like he really puts much wear and tear on them so I have no idea how they would actually hold up longterm.

    Walmart had a knockoff a few years ago, but not in white.
    Target has some that are called jibbitz by the crocs brand but they don't come in white. They do have black though, which is a good neutral, but I'd still prefer white. I wish they had them in white, they are really cute and seem like really good quality.

    Those are good ideas, but I want something they don't have to wear socks with that can also be worn to play in water and will dry fast.

    Re: White crocs or "sport" sandals?

    My favorite summer shoes for my girls are the Breezer Mary Janes from The Children's Place. The are made out of the same material as crocs and are so light and easy to clean. Plus they are cheap! They only have the blue and purple ones on their website now but we have them in white like these. I'm hoping they still have them in the store because I want to pick up a few more pairs before they sell out. I'm going to check this week.

    ETA I also found these on ebay. They have a lot of different sizes in other listings too.

    Yeah, I saw them. The pattern seems a little busy, not really a fan.
    I'm sorta thinking about these. I may just end up getting some of the black jibbits by crocs from Target though. They are nice and neutral even if they aren't white, but best of all they are affordable.

    Gilt.com has crocs for sale for around $15 and $17. I think today's the last day though. There's some white, and tan ones left.

    Re: White crocs or "sport" sandals?

    I'g get them some Lands End action sandals. They go on sale for $12 a lot. I'd just get the pastel ones. They might not match everything, but they'll coordinate whereas black crocs will clash with most everything. At least it would for my daughter. I think she owns 1 or 2 shirts with a smidge of black/gray and that's pushing it.

    Re: White crocs or "sport" sandals?

    I'm going to get either the REI sandals I linked or the tan crocs from gilt. I just have to make up my mind before the crocs sale is over.
    Thanks for the tip about gilt! I got a pm from another member about the sale too, so thanks!
