I found a pair of very lightweight sandals that would be suitable for "evening wear", and are more substantial than flip flops. They state that they are 4 ounces each/8 ounces for the pair, but that's based on a smaller size than I wear. I ordered them in the largest size - size 11, and the pair weighs 9.6 ounces/272 grams on my kitchen scale. I like that they have adjustable straps, and can be worn with socks. They are substantial enough to walk on the Camino in an emergency situation, but not long term, like Tevas, Merrells, etc. The reviews say that they dry fast, so I imagine that they could be worn in the shower. They come in blue and black.

Sandals are an awesome thing. I wouldn't really care about 50-100g. I am used to walking in sandals most of the Camino. They might be especially handy in rainy conditions as your boots might get really wet and not dry until the next day. I consider good sandals essential.

I walk the Camino in good hiking sandals, but like to have another pair for evenings

FYI: This is what I am taking on my next Camino, the Crocs LiteRide. I just bought my second pair, never wore them on a Camino, but I wore them all over on my trip to Crete, up and down hills and rocks. They are not super stable, but on a Camino they should do just fine. Also dressy enough to wear in the evening, with or without socks. I think they are sooo comfortable. I can't find how much they weigh, but they are less than any other sandal I have ever owned (they must weigh much less than a pound together), come in several colors (navy, peach, red, light blue, multi). They are actually on sale right now, 35.99.

Those look great too. They are even cheaper on Zappos. Now see what you've done? I'll have to order them to compare with the Flojos! Fortunately, Zappos has free shipping and returns!

Holy Cow! Wish I had looked on Zappos before I bought mine. :confused: Happy shopping @trecile!
