I bought a pair of croc-like clogs, and I want to add more holes to them, to give them better ventilation.



Why not just buy crocs, you might ask? Because I don't find them comfortable. I actually was looking for Holey Soles, but they don't sell them in my country anymore.
Anyhow, any suggestions on adding holes (or slits), without destroying them?

I've been thinking about this, too; I have 2 pairs I bought online that turned out not to have any ventilation holes.

I haven't tried yet, but am wondering if using a power drill with a big bit would work.  I would start with my largest regular bit, about 3/8".  If that didn't work, I'd try a spade bit.  I think even the smallest bit for the hole saw would be too big. Smiley

I'd start by drawing a pattern on the clog (like vines and flowers), then drilling holes to form some elements of the design, like flower petals.  I did a design with colored sharpies (the thick ones) on clogs before, and it held up fairly well.  Maybe fish scales would be cool...but the holes would need to be far enough apart that the remaining bits hold the shoe in shape.

Would something like the Crop-A-Dile Big Bite work? (It has a long reach) I have used them to punch through leather.
