Crocs admittedly aren't the best water shoe, but they also have the advantage of being a comfortable (and light) camp shoe. As I was already carrying a pair of trail runners for the portages, I was trying to keep my weight down. I did consider a proper pair of water shoes also, but in the end decided against them. Apart from the one almost-mishap on the beaver dam, the Crocs worked perfectly well.
