Im not necessarily saying these are the shoes I was going to get... it was just talked about by other people on the boards. Also, I think you guys have a misunderstanding of what crocs I am talking about. Croc makes many forms of shoes not just the standard ugly ones with all the holes in them. They also make leather laced up shoes with the croc soles. You can't even tell from the looks of them they are crocs.

The prohibition on Crocs may not be entirely due to the appearance, but also due to the fact that Crocs tend to be very slippery, and that could pose a safety risk in some areas.

The look guidelines just says no contrasting logos so as long as the logo is the same color as the shoe it doesn't seem like it will matter.

Per The Disney Look, Walt Disney World Resort Cast Members wearing costumes which require the use of a Black or White Athletic Shoe must wear shoes that are solid in colour with no contrasting logos or markings.

The notable exception to this is for Cast Members working at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex. Cast Members statused to or working in this area may wear Black or White Athletic Shoes with multicoloured stripes or logos on the shoes. Extreme styles are not permitted.

In order to ensure the safety of all Cast Members, the Company highly recommends that all Cast Members wear shoes with slip-resistant soles, particularly those working in areas involved in the preperation or serving of Food Products such as Restaurants, Kitchens and select Merchandise locations.

Looking "fresh" really shouldn't be a concern. No matter how cool your shoes are, Disney Costumes are not really designed to make anyone look cool.

Indeed. The Disney Look is a classic, traditional look which does not conform to the latest fashion trends nor extremes in appearance.

It allows our Cast Members to blend into their surroundings and focus on working to deliver the immersive show and Magical Guest Experiences that our Guests have come to expect from Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

The Black Pair would be borderline, and would probably depend on the judgment of your Area Leadership. If they have lights on the bottom, as it would appear, they would be unacceptable.

The White Pair are unacceptable due to the heel.

Styles of athletic shoe that meet The Disney Look guidelines would look like the following.

While I personally like that shoe (and just added it to my wishlist), unless you have another application for it, I'd recommend waiting. I was merch and our shoes were white athletic.
