I usually take a flat pair of tesco mules, a pair of Velcro strappy sandals (these I wear most) and my walking boots.

they sound clever. contrary as it sounds though, I actually dont like my feet being warm or hot, I just need them to be not freezing. I can tolerate having quite cold feet but anticipate that when we go winter camping they will be freezing.

I forgot I had some velcro sandals actually,, good idea.

Well for now, I have bought matching blitzen II crocs, this means I can get away without the socks for the time being.

That is what I use as well but I do find it hard getting my toes to the end of the crocs with the socks on

Wellies especially first thing in the morning when the grass is damp, and slippers inside the tent. We are normally in walking boots all day so it's nice to have my comfy slippers in the tent. Or flip flops if its really hot

Crocs for me too and also my croc sandals. Ideal to slip on and off and great for if the grass is wet and they just wipe clean. I have a pair of slipper socks for the tent as no shoes allowed.

Crocs with wool socks for when it's cold. Wool socks keep your feet warm even when damp, unlike cotton or most synthetic socks. I like knitting socks so we never go short of wool socks.

I also saw a knitting pattern for liners for Crocs a couple of years ago, I keep on meaning to make a pair to try. This is the Ravelry Link to it, unfortunately you do have to join the Ravelry knitting forum to access it but it's free to join. But if you're a knitter you should join Ravelry anyway, I think. Two million members and counting!

I like my mock crocs but they're falling apart and I've actually repaired the soles (which cost more than they did originally!).

I have also taken my gardening clogs as they don't have holes in the uppers (so more waterproof) but have the same slip-on, slip-off factor. Something like this (mine are red and bought from local garden centre):


Otherwise, sandals, trainers, walking boots as required. Hate wellies.

Oh to be camping now that spring is here

I'm a size 10, but have a pair of size 11 "half wellies", for when the grass is wet... or snow, of course. I can step straight in and out, without needing to bend over and pull them on/off, with or without socks on.... and they look surprisingly cool and sexy with shorts!

I have 2 pairs of Aussi Sole Snugs

A Tan pair and a Black pair. The tan pair are now 4 years old, and still going strong, I even go out Geocaching in them.

I've sat for hours in a car in the middle of winter, with warm feet [car parked up, whilst I sat outside the nearby McDonald's, to my Disabled children's collage]

Ok I'll bite, Now I can see situations where wellies may be a hazard(pretty much any shoe could be in the right circumstances), but for walking around a campsite.

Could you please elaborate.

In fine, dry weather it's just crocs for me but if the grass is wet and the weather is chilly I team them with Sealskinz waterproof socks.  Expensive but they last forever. http://www.sealskinz.com/UK/socks
