When it comes to hiking boots or camping wear, crocs probably aren't the first shoe that comes to mind. Well, it appears that Crocs are aiming to put the kibosh on that train of thought with these new survival hiking crocs! They're called the Campsite Classic Clog, and they're sold by End Clothing. The unique camping crocs come with a waterproof sleeve-like attachment that makes them fully waterproof up to just above your ankles, plus they have slew of survival tools integrated right into the crocs.

Crocs teamed up with experimental artist Nicole McLaughlin to reshape all the pre-conceived associations with their shoe brand, and by George I think they've done it with these quite unique hiking crocs. The survival crocs might be an eye-sore to anyone who already hates Crocs, but should feel right at home to Croc enthusiasts.

You can fully remove the waterproof sleeve inserts along with survival tools if you'd like to take them into sport mode when you don't need them, but then just slip the inserts back in and reattach your tools when you're looking to take them into utility mode when hiking, camping, or just doing some light surviving in the wilderness.

"Crocs may not spring to mind when you think of utilitarian outdoorwear, but the esoteric footwear label teams with experimental artist Nicole McLaughlin to reshape all the pre-conceived associations."

Tools on the camping crocs include a flashlight, paracord, a compass, and a few other various jibbitz™ adornments "that would often be deemed essential on a weekend camping trip".

"At the core, it’s a regular clog, with a foam construction, ventilation holes and a heel strap, should you want to go full sport mode. But, in Mclaughlin’s usual style, it’s reimagined with a host of out-there additions."

"There’s a gaiter-like shroud that extends up the ankle — with a pocket, of course — and various jibbitz™ adornments that would often be deemed essential on a weekend camping trip, including a compass and a light."
