Work shoes are shoes designed to stand heavy wear, protect the feet, and provide high traction. Work shoes are generally made from sturdy leather uppers and non-leather outsoles with protective features such as steel toes or ankle guards. Work shoes are commonly used for protection in industrial settings, construction, mining, and other workplaces.
Crocs Specialist Shoe made a little bit different now....

I love wearing my Crocs Classics but I wanted something for those days that might be a tad colder - and might be a bit wet. You just can't have holes surrounding your feet on those days. So I opted for the Specialist to wear with jeans and sweats when I walk the dog in the wintertime. I ordered a size larger than what I would normally wear in the "hole-y" Crocs so that I could wear some thick socks. And these work just fine.My only complaint (and that of other reviews) is that the back strap is more cheaply made than Crocs from a couple of years ago. The back strap is a bit more flimsy and, therefore, harder to put around your heel. The older ones were more rigid and your heel just slid in. With these, you might actually be standing on part of the back strap as you try to maneuver the entire thing around the base of your foot. That's my only complaint.
