Laces are for suckers, especially after you’ve backpacked 12 miles deep into the backcountry and barely have enough energy to open your flask. It’s time to kick off your boots and slip on next-level comfort. Here are five of our favorite camp shoes, from the inexpensive but practical to the downright luxurious.
Teva Ember Moc ($70)
These have a quilted Ripstop upper which hugs your feet like a slipper, while a rubber sole lets you move around rocky and dirty campsites freely.
Bogs B Moc Quilt Puffy ($100)
The B Moc looks beefy, but the high-rise boots are incredibly light, pack small, and are fully waterproof, which makes them ideal for camping in the snow.
Glerups Slip-On ($135)
Ditch your hiking boots and your socks to maximize the next-to-skin comfort of these 100 percent felted wool shoes.
Western Mountaineering Down Bootie ($100)
Cozy goose down fill makes these some of the warmest booties on the market, while foam insoles, non-slip soles, and DWR coating lend them toughness enough to handle camp life. Oh, and they weigh just six ounces per pair.
We know you’re not supposed to wear Crocs in public anymore, but they rule in a campsite; they’re feather-light, comfy as hell (admit it), and handle water crossings like a champ.
