Crocs are clog-style shoe that are enjoyed because of their comfort, water resistance and ease to clean. Crocs are available in a variety of colours and styles. Still, Crocs are not indestructible as the case with many shoes. They show wear and tear and may need repairing after a long period of use. Contacting Crocs Retail Inc. and ordering replacement parts can usually fix the issues that may arise when repairs are needed.

  1. 1

    Remove the broken rivets from the holes of the Crocs, if damaged, and place the replacement rivets into position. The rivets come in two parts. The first part houses the Crocs logo, while the second part has a plain, black head.

  2. 2

    Push the inside rivet through the outside of the hole to remove the logo piece. The logo part will snap away from the rest of the rivet. Attach the new rivet into place by inserting the plain head from the inside of the shoe though the hole and secure it in place with the logo part.

  3. 3

    Remove the broken strap by detaching the rivets from each side of the Crocs. Remove the top part of the rivet from the outside of the shoe, which will then release the inside part of the rivet. Lay the rivets to the side and remove the broken strap.

  4. 4

    Affix the new strap to the Croc. Place the strap over the holes for the rivets. Place the rivets back in the hole to secure the strap by inserting the plain black part of the rivet inside the Croc, and fasten it with the top of the rivet.

  5. 5

    Inspect the rivets to make sure the strap is secure. The rivets should be fastened tightly and the strap should not move when tugged. Put on the Crocs to make sure they are still comfortable and adjust the straps as needed for your comfort.

Tips and warnings

  • If the straps or rivets are missing or broken, new ones may be ordered from the Crocs website. Create an account at or log in with your credentials. Enter your shipping information and shoe colour as well as shoe size. The exact colour name can be found on the tag or box accompanied with the Crocs upon purchase.
  • If the rivet or strap is not in need of repair, you may need to purchase a new pair of Crocs. Small holes in the bottom of your Crocs can be fixed by filling them with a dab of silicone gel, but that may only be a short fix. New Crocs can be found on the company's website or at many speciality stores.
