Thread: Camp Slippers.......????

  1. #1

    Default Camp Slippers.......????

    Looking for ideas for camp slippers. Application: You have backpacked 10 miles in hip boots, set up camp & now want something that was backpack friendly for you feet around camp. Waterproof & Warm, Light Weight. I don't know what is currently available, but I am thinking of cutting the feet out of a pair of neoprene chest waders. Suggestions.

    Xtratuffs makes lowtops but I use crocks around camp. Not waterproof but comfy and light.

    Crocs. Super light, compact and waterproof.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    +4 on the crocs, though they can be slippery on wet grass & such. They have a model that is more like a shoe, without the holes like the standard crocs. I got mine at Alaska Mill & Feed.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!

    I hate Crocs. What a fad. All these goobers walking around Walmart, parents, kids, all wearing these ugly rubber shoes. To make it worse, folks love these in lime green, yellow, and pink colors at times. Super lame status is easily achieved. Then flying back to NC from Anchorage last year, I see the Croc store in the Seattle airport. Wife walks in, I follow reluctantly. Most comfortable light duty shoe I ever wore. Lightweight, cheap, durable, and pack easy. Got three pair now and wear them often. Beige and black, no pink or lime green, but I do enjoy wearing them anyway. Perfect camp shoe, no doubt about it.

    Obnoxious colors in camp are best. I lost one on a river crossing once. Recovered it on the edge of a beaver dam 2 miles later

    Crocs with no holes for moose camp, for sheep camp the liners in my Lowa plastics have rubber bottoms and are like moccasins.

    Crocs are hard to beat, These have more bush time than most hunters I know. LOL
    Feels so good to slip on the Crocs after a long day in the boots.

    I was going to vote for the low cut xtratuffs, I've used mine for years.

    After reading these posts looks like I'm going to have to try some Crocs in some kind of nauseating color, say hot pink?
    That should make them easy to find and keep people away from my tent! LOL

    I dunno about that. Pink gear usually insinuates a woman is in camp. Tho a pink size 12 changes things.

    I am thinking something a little warmer than "Crocs". What if I used shoe-goo to glue neoprene booties in crocs....?

    I gotta say go with crocs as well... you can also use them to wade creeks- remove boots and socks, roll up the pants and go. They dry with just a shake and weigh next to nothing.

    For camp use a nice dry pair of wool socks and a pair crocs make great camp shoes after hiking in heavy boots all day.

    Maybe do the Croc's with no holes then and an insulated sock like the Integral Designs Hot Foot or similar?

    You may have to DLP a boar Bigfoot after you call him in with size 12's.
