how to fix a croc strap

Fixing a broken or damaged Croc strap can be a practical way to extend the life of your Crocs shoes. Crocs are made of a flexible material called Croslite, which is relatively easy to work with. Here’s how you can fix a Croc strap:

Materials You’ll Need:

  1. Replacement Strap (Optional): You can purchase replacement Croc straps online or from Crocs retailers.
  2. Zip Ties (Cable Ties): Strong, durable zip ties that can fit through the holes in the strap.
  3. Scissors: To cut the excess zip tie length.


  1. Inspect the Damage:
    • Examine the broken or damaged Croc strap to assess the type and extent of the damage. Determine if the strap can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.
  2. If Using a Replacement Strap:
    • If you have a replacement Croc strap, carefully remove the damaged strap by pulling it out from the holes in the shoe. Insert the new strap into the holes, ensuring it’s securely in place.
  3. Zip Tie Repair Method:
    • If you don’t have a replacement strap, you can use zip ties to fix the strap.
    • Thread a zip tie through one of the holes on the shoe where the strap was originally attached.
  4. Secure the Strap:
    • Pull the zip tie through the hole, and then loop it through the broken end of the Croc strap.
  5. Tighten the Zip Tie:
    • Pull the zip tie tight to secure the strap in place. Make sure it’s snug but not so tight that it causes discomfort when wearing the Crocs.
  6. Trim the Excess Zip Tie:
    • Use scissors to trim the excess length of the zip tie, leaving a small tail.
  7. Repeat for Other Holes (if needed):
    • If the strap has multiple holes, repeat the process to secure the strap in each hole.
  8. Test the Repair:
    • Gently pull and flex the strap to ensure that it’s securely attached and can withstand normal wear.
  9. Optional: Add Extra Zip Ties (if needed):
    • Depending on the extent of the damage, you may want to add additional zip ties at different points along the strap to provide extra support and stability.
  10. Wear and Enjoy:
    • Once the repair is complete and you’re satisfied with the strap’s stability, you can wear your Crocs as usual.

Please note that while this method can work for minor strap repairs, it may not be as durable as a replacement strap from the manufacturer. Additionally, the repaired strap may not look as aesthetically pleasing as the original strap. If you frequently encounter strap issues with your Crocs, it’s a good idea to consider purchasing replacement straps or contacting Crocs customer service for guidance.
