Are they appropriate footwear for orienteering?

For that matter, I am not stopping any kids in flip flops from trying it out.

Wait, you need footwear? I knew I was doing something wrong!

I ran a Stampede course in Laramie once wearing Tevas and running shorts. People thought I was recklessly underdressed. Because I was wearing only SPF8.

I wasn't suggesting kids wearing crocs (or sandals / flip flops) not be allowed to O; just that more protective footwear be recommended -- if practical to do so.

Yes, let's set up as many barriers to participation as possible. Heaven forbid kids have fun in a park without kevlar socks and wraparound helmets.

Magazine beach is a city park, Guy. Grassy. "Beach".

In short (as short as can be), Barb's answer to the question is spot on.

I wear Inov-8s - prototypical orienteering shoes - and still hurt my feet sometimes. Maybe I should switch to crocs.
