Outdoor and camp footwear are important. Proper and comfortable foot protection is critical to survival. Everyone has their own footwear standards. Some include color, style, weight, or comfort.

I was watching a show about a snake hunter that catches invasive pythons in the Everglade swamps. He goes barefoot! He either has feet as tough as buffalo hide or is just lucky. He claims that he sometimes can feel the snakes under the grass using his bare feet. OMG!!!

Even a light moccasin or a sandal is better than nothing. Some protection will keep you afoot and afield. Sandals have never been right for me. I always seem to jamb a toe, get stuck by a twig, or simply have them flop off. I am a flop at flip flops.

Then came CROCS!!! Wow what an ugly shoe. What they lose in looks, they make up for in comfort, durability, and weight. Since they are waterproof and buoyant, they make for a good wet wading choice. At less than $50, you can by a whole herd of them for the family.

Light weight Crocs go on quick. They have a rear strap to hold them in place. They come in many colors and patterns. Mossy Oak has created an almost weightless lounging shoe made of soft flexible foam. Side ports drain water and dirt, while allowing air to dry your tootsies. The Mossy Oak camo patterns make for a nice shoe. Just don’t lose them in the field.

After a long day of fishing, hiking, or hunting, this camp shoe will save the day. Allowing your feet to breathe will help them relax. If you need a quick camp slipper to address natures call, you can slide into your Crocs and be ready to go.

Dial in a pair of Crocs now! Your feet will thank you.
