Light weight shoes

Hi all. Could anyone recommend a good light weight walking shoe for men? I can’t wear crocs or sandals and need some shoes to walk around in after hiking. Water proof might be helpful since I’m walking throughout November. Thanks for any guidance.

The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
My husband likes these. Kind of a cross between a slipper and a shoe.

North Face also makes a similar shoe (Thermoball mule V).

To be clear-- are you talking about a light shoe to walk around town ONLY? Or do you want something you might be able to occasionally swap out for your main walker out on the trail AND in the evenings.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.

I’ve packed crocs on my last Caminos for end of day foot relief. This time I have a few things planned (cooking one evening in San Sebastián with a gastronomy society, Guggenheim visit in Bilbao) … so I ditched the crocs for a pair of Allbird loungers. Very lightweight, closed toe slip-ons, very breathable, super comfy and easy wash ability. I believe Sketchers also has similar options …

Great question. I’m walking with an ankle high Merrill. Would like a pair of comfortable shoes to relax in after the long walk. Not hiking. And November is a rainy season.
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-

Hi,
If you only need them for the evening (no trail hiking) google “recovery shoes” and you’ll find some. Hoka and Oofos both make a slide and Hoka used to have a shoe as well. Others are making recovery shoes as well.

I walked in Hoka Stinson’s and then brought a pair of OnCloud/OnRunning lightweight shoes to use in the evenings.

Buen Camino,

Thank you for these suggestions. Never thought of the Hokas. Take care. Frank
