I wonder if these are light? They look fairly durable..

With Noel and Mark on the 5 fingers. Good option for one shoe does everything. But they are not for every trail or route.

I use my lightweight hiking shoes as camp shoes. They are comfortable and multi-use.

I wrote the company. Got an answer back within a day. Not too shabby.

Anyway, according to Rachelle at Kigo, the Shels (size 7) weigh app. .7 pounds per pair (my quick calc says that's about 11 oz.) FWIW

Go barefoot around camp and camp shoes will become zero ounces. Watch your step and be cautious, you'll be fine.

> im also on the peep-out for the fanatically adored Vibram Five Fingers.

Just finished a 23-mile hike in Ohio's Zaleski State Forest using the Vibram KSO's. I carried no camp shoes at all. In camp, I took off the socks. In fact, the things are so comfortable, I wore them in the sleeping quilt and didn't have to put on anything when nature called at 3 AM.

Toe shoes will change your life if you let them.
