Crocs Hydro Shoes (Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2006)

Overview

Crocs has several new models of foam shoes coming out next year. See photos and weight comparisons of the new Athens flip-flops and Scoot slides with Holey Soles and Waldies shoes here. Also interesting are the Hydro shoes. The Hydros are relatively heavy at 14 ounces per pair, but offer a stream crossing shoe that is held securely to your foot with a pull-tight neoprene upper. If you do a lot of stream crossings, hate getting your hiking shoes wet, or enjoy water sports, the Hydros are worth a look.
