Not seriously magic, but maybe hard to find.

Waterproof, breathable, not cold, a little tread to keep me from falling on my butt, and easy on and off.

Wanting something I can put on when our elderly dogs need to go RIGHT NOW and want to head through wet grass. Wear around the fire or when grilling or just anything staying close to the campsite so I’m not tying and untying shoes all the time.

Now, I wear Crocs sometimes, but they aren’t great on a cool morning with dew or rain, and my feet get dirty. I wear a pair of moccasin/slipper crosses with a rubber sole. They are good unless it’s wet.

Flip flops are out. Too easy to fall and dirty.

I’ve actually been eyeballing a pair of Goretex hikers wondering if I can trim them down to a slip-on.

Anyone have a good option?

We have what we call "fuggs". They're fake Uggs. We're too cheap to buy the name brand ones.

They pull on pretty quickly and keep your feet dry and warm. I wouldn't wear them in the snow, but they're good just about everyplace else.

Go to tractor supply and get some chore boots rubber and slip on. Come up about mid way to knees.

Look at the line of Merrell Boots. I have three pair, for work, around the house, and casual dress. Slip off and on, no laces Exceptionally comfortable all day long. Lots of tread so no slip. Warm in winter, and cool in summer. Expensive, but well worth the usefulness. Don't get misled by the name, there are many styles of shoes. Strongly recommend. My son got them for me for Christmas several years ago and I'm hooked.

Duck boots come to mind, they're waterproof. Academy Sports sells an inexpensive slip-on duck shoe, but they seem to only have women's sizes listed on their website right now...maybe wrong time of year. There are some on Amazon and LLBean, though.

When I was looking for the same thing,something to replace my moccasins to go out in the morning when wet or cold,or around the campfire with a good grip sole,easy on and off I found THESE *edited to show the short ones,which I bought.

They worked out very well,got them a little big and could not be happier.

I'd look at what is offered by the companies that deal with outdoor clothing and shoes but this is NOT a recommendation for any particular company which might violate the Forum's rules.

You can recommend anything you like, as long as you aren't advertising.

Don't promote your own enterprise, but feel free to share your opinion about brands you enjoy.

I like my Skechers with memory foam, technically I think they're considered slippers but they slip on and have a nice grip. If they're not waterproof enough, you could spray something on from 3M etc. Like what they use for couches.
