The perfect, lightweight camp and shower shoe for hikers and backpackers
May 24, 2018
Oh my gosh — it’s time for me to leave my first product review ever. These clogs are INCREDIBLY lightweight and comfortable. For all you hikers and backpackers out there, size 44 (that’s men’s 10, women’s 12) weighs 7.34 oz for the pair (that’s 3.67 oz each). They are completely waterproof, because they’re some kind of rubbery/plastic product, and they have ventilation holes in the top to let your feet breathe. The rubbery/plastic product means the shoes dry quickly and can be used as both camp shoes and shower shoes. Concerning comfort, the arch support is moderate to low, the shoes are wide (like Crocs), and there are pea-sized nubby bumps on the inside surface, presumably to massage your foot as you walk. Concerning comfort of the heel strike, the center underside heel of the shoe is recessed, so the weight of your step never contacts the ground but rather sinks into the airspace between the recessed heel and the ground. Interesting; I haven’t seen that before. The back of the shoe has about a 3/4” heel cuff, which means you can seat an insert into the clog for even greater comfort. My new favorite is a full insert by Dr. Scholls. These clogs are going with me on the Camino de Santiago, as shoes with inserts in the post-hike evenings (12.42 oz total) and as shower shoes without inserts at night. In the photo, the shoe on the left has the insert, the shoe on right is without.
