I backpacked 130 miles and this would shave some weight on "camp shoes." Usually crocs or flipflops. Making them out of DT and foam sheets would make them so much lighter especially for just evening-wear around my campsite. Adding them to my to-do list.

Thanks for viewing and commenting! I really enjoyed making them. I hope you have fun, too!
