$9 is certainly cheaper than Crocs, which are about $30. The Airwalk, available at Payless Shoe Source for $20, has a heel strap and is lighter than the Croc (Airwalk, size M12: 10.6 oz; Croc, size M10 (really a size 12): 13.2 oz). I'm curious whether these shoes are made of Croc-density or Airwalk-density material.
For river crossing, a heel strap equivalent can be made from light cord wrapped once around the ankle, passed through the holes, and tied.
