Previous pinner: "Best camping shoes!" || I must agree. My 7 yr old wore similar shoes (by Khombu) for a camping trip recently (Apr 2013) and they were so much better than sneakers. He could take them off easily and quickly when he needed to go in and out of the tent and not get it dirty. They kept his feet cool enough when it was hot (camping in FL), and dried quickly when it rained (also excellent grip). When it got a little chilly, just threw on a pair of thick socks.
