Great new piece of gear. Perfect for stream crossings, out back trout fishing, camp shoe, and for use when your hiking shoe has a blow out.

I could have had to hike in these when my Montrail GTX's blew out, and probably could have done it until I wore the bottoms off. The nice thing about CROCS is that they are very comfortable, relatively lightweight (13 oz for a Mens size 12-13).

They're very comfortable slip-on with a flip up strap. The only down side is they are a little price, typically $40 a pair. There is a very similar pair available, with slightly stiffer foam available for about 1/2 the price at WalMart, but try both out, as some people like the firmer "Wallies", and others like the softer CROCS.

In all seriousness, I don't think the soft material they're made of would last a 20 mile hike, but I expect you could make miles if you had to.

I've try every "Croc" type shoe I see.

My favorite is Dollar General's at $6.99. Trust me, the price has "little" to do with it.

Dollar General's brand/style is by far the most comfortable I've found.

125 grams per shoe helps with my gear weight also.

I've even shopped Shoe Cobblers to glue on a Vibram sole, but all say the glue won't hold. Something about too much plastic in Dollar General's composition.

I'm thinking I'll try to DIY with ''Contact Cement''.

Any one have experience with said?

Cheers !
