My first edition Exodus Sandals (roughly at size 12) are 212 grams for the pair. Great for streams, mud, as much snow as you want and even great for down-time in camp.
Lots of options out there. Happy hunting!

In terms of comfort and durability at 4oz my TOMS Canvas shoes are my absolute favorite camp shoes!

I've never used "camp shoes/sandals" as they are extra weight. Besides, I already have camp shoes on my feet :)

Watch out lest you break the heal cup. No bueno.

They're Nike Frees my favorite hiking shoe ... they don't have a traditional "structured" heel cup to break, I've done this with all my pairs I've had.

"Heel cups? We don't need no stinking heel cups" ;-)

Just sayin'. I had a heel cup split on a pair of Innov8 330s 6 miles into a 24 mile hike. Blister city.

Ken, Unlike the Nike Frees which don't have a structured heel cup, Inov-8s do havc a structured heel cup ... it's an apples and oranges situation.

Structured heel cups which would make it very difficult to bend down the back of the shoe to go in to slipper mode. Is that how you split yours? or was it a quality control issue from just normal use?

Btw, I've logged miles in slipper mode on the Frees (relatively level terrain). YMMV
