Ordered these when I was out working on an unfortunately unsuccessful thru-hike of the PCT; while I was only able to do about 1,800 miles of it, I was able to move around camp, and town, in comfort with these bad boys. On top of all of that, they were snug enough that I could use them to fjord rivers and waterfalls, allowing me to slosh across without worrying about them sliding off in the water, when the moments arose where I didn't want to truck through in shoes and consequently walk in bath tubs the rest of the day.
However, despite their comfort, I cannot deny that they are ugly as sin; I do not believe even the devil himself would wear these. Aside from the fact that they are atrocious in appearance, it does not detract from the fact that they are quite gratifying to wear.
I do not remember being concerned about slipping on loose ground, or even wet rock while trudging through rivers, though I suppose the potential for slippage would depend on the surface in question. Moreover, you can essentially forget about sliding on floors or sidewalks; I do not recall a moment where I was concerned about slipping while on a town stop *usage note: never encountered ice in these shoes.*
If you're looking for a truly light set of footwear to don when you are lounging around the campsite, or the house, I would recommend checking these clogs out, though try and find them on sale if you can.
Regarding sizing, my foot measures 9 1/4 in from heel to toe, so I ordered a size 8 in men's and they are perfect.
