A very good base camp shoe. About a lb per pair.
- Great traction for a "slipper"
- Sole could be thinner, shoe lighter
An excellent camp shoe. Runs small. I wear an 11, and if I want to wear socks with the Thermoball it has to be a low cut running sock; no chance of a wool hiking sock fitting in it.
On the plus side, you will not worry walking off you site to use relieve yourself with the Thermoball on. The sole is a few centimeters higher than the footbed, so you foot does not slide around in it.
