There was a time, not long ago, that you wouldn’t be caught dead in a pair of Crocs (unless you were a child, and most often they were used as water shoes). They were considered to be a fashion nightmare and were ridiculed as mercilessly as a mullet.
Somewhere in the last decade, however, Crocs leveled-up, and became a well-loved everyday shoe. Marketing changed focus, and leaned into the jokes that had been made about them. The product offering evolved as well, with more applications and individualization. And, it seemed overnight, the popularity of Crocs rose.
And with every passing year, Crocs unveils a new clog that takes the internet by storm, whether it’s the Margaritaville Crocs (with a working bottle opener jibit), or the Balenciaga platform Croc that was sold for over $1000.
This summer, Crocs is at it again with their new All-Terrain Crocs.

Made to offer maximum traction, these clogs have the same outsole as the Crocs MTN, with a tread pattern inspired by the Rocky Mountains. These All-Terrain shoes are made with the classic comfort of a traditional pair of Crocs, while also being lightweight shoes for casual adventuring. As a slip-on, they allow you to put the shoes on and you’re ready to go, without worrying about them coming undone during your hike or as you wade through the water.
Many reviewers left positive reviews (though there were some who said they were not as comfortable as the original clogs) and are excellent for exploration. The main concern most people had was that the clogs tend to run smaller than the traditional ones. As a stiffer clog style, they’ll be durable wherever you may travel. Overall the reviews are glowing- including one from a consumer that said “It is like having Hulk hands on my feet, so awesome.”
Are “All-Terrain” Crocs the next viral sensation?
While time will tell if these enjoy the same mainstream success as some of their more outlandish shoes, these all-terrain Crocs will probably gain a strong cult-following and dedicated customer base as they continue to perfect these shoes. Customers are fans of the comfortable fit and the way they can handle the rugged terrain under them. And the design features smaller holes than on their traditional clogs, so your toes don’t slip out.
With plenty of positive reviews so far, they seem like a great shoe for those who are interested in getting outdoors more but aren’t ready to commit to a hiking shoe, or as an alternative to water shoes. For the canoe and kayak crowd, these Crocs could be a good option for adventures out on the water. The only part of the Atlas Crocs that aren’t rubber are the adjustable strap to keep them from falling off of your feet, meaning they’ll dry fast from the water to the trail.
