Crocs are some of the lightest and most comfortable shoes on the market. They are also sturdy, and they hold up well. But be cautious of the marketing campaign that labeled these "off road" crocs. I decided to take the phrase literally and used them over Labor Day Weekend in Yosemite. As hiking shoes they have 2 distinct negatives. 1. You will get very dirty on a dusty trail. 2. Rocks get into the boot easily. So buy and enjoy, but get more traditional boots for serious hiking.
