    Just walk on your hands and you won't need any camp shoes!

    I made a flip-flop pair of these out of the blue WM foam and they were wicked light and comfortable as long as I was on smooth ground. Once I stepped on a rock or a twig I could hear the closed cells popping and then feel said rock or twig in my foot. Twigs were REAL bad about poking all the way thru the foam. Is there a way to keep this from happening?
    and then

    A bazillion years ago when I was in high school, I had a buddy that simply duct taped the bottom of his feet--I don't recall the specifics of that particular endeavor other than that it was a failure of epic proportions. The blue ccf sandals seem the better option
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    I honestly can't remember anything we came up with in high school ending any differently. 'Course, that ante-dated "a bazillion years ago" by a comfortable margin, so maybe some progress was made.

    I use a pair of insoles that have a single length of paracord attached to it to make a flip flop. a picture of how I tie the cord is here in this thread: http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-...hread_id=20718
    I haven't tried it with the blue foam though. also, sorry if external linking is frowned upon, I can edit it out.
