Still really comfortable and warmer than the Crocs with the holes in the toes
but I'm still not taking them on any long distance hikes.
- Got these for X-mas.

Might not be as bad with heavy wool socks.

Yeah,
Not such great winter boots but great camp shoes and watercrossing shoes mainly because they only weigh a few ounces.

I only use mine for camp shoes. I might start considering using them on water crossings too though so I don't have to hike in wet boots anymore. I just wish it didn't take so long to change my footwear... Rock's not very patient about waiting. LOL

It sounds like I better not plan on hiking with Rock. I'm getting slower and slower. He may start calling me "Mom" just to see if it gets me moving faster.

Dixie Critter may "get" the reference...

Nahhh, he just thinks I'm silly for wanting to change my shoes just because of a little water.:wink:

I bet I hike a lot slower than you do. He doesn't really seem to mind that all that much. :biggrin:

When I'm hiking in trail or running shoes, I don't have my Crocs along but if I'm wearing kletter boots, they take days to dry out. Nice to slip my feet into something dry in the middle of the night when nature calls rather than soggy 2lb/each hiking boots that weigh about half again as much after a water crossing than they do dry (damp). Seem to last a few more seasons if not soaked through too many times too.

At least not out loud! Smart boy...

He has his moments... :wink:

I think he's just really happy I've finally agreed to go along, truth be told.

They make Croc's for winter. They have holes and have that, Crocs budget pricing.
