Crocs In Sport Mode, also known as Crocs Sports Mode vs. Relaxed Mode, is a catchphrase and slang term used in memes and other jokes revolving around the shoe brand Crocs and the different ways to wear them. Because of the two different ways to wear them with the strap either up or down, it is commonly memed that having the heel strap in the downward position is indicative of engaging in an athletic endeavor, meaning that they are in "sport mode" while the upward position is called "relaxed mode."


On January 29th, 2019, Twitter user @photosnfreckles[1] uploaded two pictures with writing on them to show the difference between the two modes, with the heel strap up being designated "relaxed mode" and the heel strap down being "sports mode," earning over 77,500 likes in three years and solidifying the idea of crocs having a sport mode to go faster in, based on her accompanying caption (shown below).

On December 9th, 2021, content creator JustinButlertv[2] uploaded a video to his YouTube channel titled "Dog Crocs in Sport Mode" in which he races his two dogs down a hallway while they are wearing Crocs in sport mode, taking the time to change his own Crocs from relaxed mode to sport mode.
