When it comes to outdoor sandals, beyond flip-flops, for serious walking, hiking, working, and various outdoor activities, are there any notable brands and types you suggest? I know Teva are good, as are Birkenstocks. And ofcourse it depends on one's price-range/budget, as well.
What do you all think of Crocs (Both the actual brand name Crocs and the Croc-like shoes people wear)? I remember finding websites full of Pro Croc fans and websites full of Anti-Croc people. One of the criticisms of Crocs was that some were getting stuck and others were getting slippery on certain surfaces after the treading wore down. I have a pair and they seem to be good, but, not in winter and not on slick surfaces.
