But first, let's take a look at the basic things we need to know before starting our customization adventure.
Crocs is a brand that started in 2002. By that time, the shoes were called "Crocs Beach," and they didn't start being the most popular shoe brand right away. As time passed, this brand slowly but surely rose to the top, and today they are a well-known brand. In the United States, the brand is notable since kids tend to wear them for school. Besides, this brand is also famous among healthcare workers! This is mainly because of the comfort they offer.
How Do The Shoes Look Like?
We're sure you have seen those shoes before. They are made of plastic, and the brand describes their most famous shoes as some kind of "foam clog." The brand is called Crocs, Inc. Still, most of the time, when someone talks about Crocs, they refer to that specific type of shoe: made of plastic and with that distinctive design that has made Crocs so famous worldwide. One of the most liked qualities of Crocs is that they can be customizable, and it's easy to do so.
Can I Customize My Own Crocs?
Yes! Since they are made of plastic, Crocs are shoes easy to customize however you like. One of the most used and known ways to customize your Crocs is the Jibbitz charms. Still, there are other ways to customize your Crocs and make them Dragon Ball Crocs! Don't worry, we will show you different ways and how you can make them. The most famous ones include using paint, fabric, or glitter.
What Are Jibbitz Charms?
If you have seen a pair of Crocs shoes before, you will realize they have small holes on the surface. Jibbitz charms, also called Crocs pins, are made so they can fit on the holes of your Crocs. In that way, you can customize your Crocs however you like by adding as much as you want to them. In this case, if we're doing Dragon Ball customization, you can get Goku pins, Vegeta pins, or Gohan pins. Just to name a few characters! But it can be however you prefer.

What Are The Ways Of Customizing My Crocs?
Finally! The moment we were waiting for. How can you make your own Dragon Ball Crocs? There are different ways to do this. We will review some of the most used ones so you can pick which one adapts to what you're looking for. Some methods are better if you're someone really creative. However, some others will suit you better if you want something quicker.
It might not sound like the most obvious choice, but if you're someone who has a gift in the art of painting, this might be a good choice for you. It's easier to paint with markers on a plastic surface, and that's the primary reason we put markers as an option, about using a brush and actual paint.
Before starting to paint them, you have to clean the Crocs and make sure they are dry. Then, you can use a pen to draw the outlines. After all that, you can search for a picture of your favorite character, logo, or kanji so you can paint it on your pair of Crocs.
This method is perfect if you're someone who: likes to draw, has an artistic side, and has time to do both. If you know how to draw, you're good to go.
You should choose another method if you: don't know how to draw, don't have patience, or don't like painting with markers.
When we heard about this method, we were as astonished as you are right now! Because of that same reason, we're about to explain it to you, so listen up. Apparently, one way to customize your Crocs is to add fabric to them and then add glue to make the fibers keep in place. We're not sure how this customization method would look, but hey, it exists, and someone has already tried it. You could use fabric and then paint on it, but we're not sure how that could work either.
This method is perfect if you're someone who: isn't afraid to try new tendencies and you're okay with the fact that you will have fabric on top of your Crocs.
You should choose another method if you: want an easy way of customization.
We believe using fabric can look good on your Crocs but only if you do it correctly because otherwise, it can look really weird.
Probably the most famous way of customization. Still, we get why: it's the easier one! Jibbitz charms or pins are accessories you can add to your Crocs. They are made to fit perfectly in the holes of your Crocs. The good thing about Jibbitz charms is that they exist in all forms and sizes. To make your own Dragon Ball Crocs, all you need is some Dragon Ball pins! We sell them at our store, so you don't have to worry about looking for good quality because we already have that. Jibbitz charms can be of the DB logo, a specific character, or a kanji. Contrarily to the other methods, you can put and take off the charms whenever you like. You can also replace the charms with new ones! With the charms, you will not do anything permanent to your Crocs. That's the main reason why this method is so popular.
This method is perfect if you're someone who: wants an easy way to customize their Crocs, like how the Jibbitz charms look, and wants something reversible done to their Crocs.
You should choose another method if you: want something more original, like painting over the plastic.
Are Jibbitz Charms The Best Way To Customize My Dragon Ball Crocs?
