Stick with the holey crocs.... just add Heat Holder socks as and when needed.
Simple to still slip the crocs on & off, and oh so cosy toes as a bonus! :-)
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.
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 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!

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
