The advantages of running flats is that they are 12-14 ounces lighter than
Tevas and one hell of a lot more comfortable than Aquasox to hike in.

The deciding factor for me is I COULD hike in my tevas, with a pair of
heavy socks. I don't think I could hike very far in any lightweight
alternative - I've had no luck even with imitation Tevas. If a hiker
is going to have a backup system for anything, it would seem to be his
footwear. And Tevas are good for stream crossings. So I don't count
the weight too much against them. Ultralighters mileage may vary.
