Great Extra Travel Shoe,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timberland Men's Radler Trail Camper Flat (Apparel)
A great idea for trips when you only want to take one pair of shoes. As a camp shoe, these are perfect. I've used them for their intended design - around a fire as my hiking boots dry. Just rugged enough for a short firewood search or a walk from the lodge down to the lake beach. They also make great canoe/boot shoes, since they dry fast and have good grip.
They're serviceable for business travel - perfect for a jaunt down to the hotel pool or fitness center, (or bar, or breakfast buffet) without having to wear the same shoes you wore to the meeting. A bit more acceptable then flip-flops, and since they fold, a bit more packable.
They're not light and flimsy - you could design them lighter and make their packed size smaller, but these seem the perfect balance between ruggedness, comfyness and portability.
Two cons however -
1. If you're going to use these outdoors, be aware that the zipper creates an area perfect for collecting and hiding seeds and maybe bugs and makes this shoe a carrier for possible invasive species in or out of susceptible areas. You should clean these thoroughly and throw these in the washing machine before and after outdoor trips. Some destinations have inspections for these kinds of things in the airport (many islands and some countries like New Zealand) and would seize a dirty pair of these shoes.
2. The zipper tab jingles a little, so, these aren't for ninjas.
