New Test Product - Camp Shoes on 10/01/2011 14:21:49 MDT Print View

Huaraches-style camp shoes - 0.7oz in my size XL.

They use 1/2" closed-cell foam, and elastic shockcord straps.

They come pretied, but you may have to adjust them depending on your specific foot size.

$18 per pair shipped.

Will not ship for a little while, though, as I have quite a few orders in the queue already.

If interested, you can send payment to goosefeet@hotmail.com

You might want to mention whether the weight is per-sandal, or per-pair.

Weight is for the pair.

UL isnt always the best way to go.

I believe that UL is the best way to go, and UL camp shoes are no exception. I personally do not use camp shoes, but figure other people might, and these could be a good candidate for summer trips where they want a little protection from the ground without being confined to their trail runners they hiked in all day.

I'd like a few people to test out a pair for me, so the first three people who send me a message (not a PM) to goosefeet@hotmail.com will get a test pair for free. I'd like feedback on sizing, durability, ease of use, etc.

EDIT: All three pairs have been spoken for!

Hey Ben,
Why not try some light grosgrain ribbon criss crossed like the original flojos sandals:flojos

I can't imagine this would add much weight and might be a little more comfortable and easier to slip on.
Just a thought...

Keith,

That is a good idea, but would involve a little more time (and thus cost) since I would have to sew the grosgrain to attach it.

If you would like me to try a pair like that for you, send me a message, and we can work out the details.

Also, from the picture, it looks like the front part of the straps could dig in to the sides of your feet. Obviously, I could make sure the grosgrain was turned so that wouldn't happen on mine...

I was thinking you cold just wrap it around the bottom and knot it on top but I had not really thought that through.
