An old pair of running shoes or just leave your hiking boots on. Or go bareback if your feet are tough enough.
Crocs are great on bare ground, but very slippery when wet.

Johnny I agree with Jim but if you can find these they work great over your hiking boots.

Carry 2 extra pounds to cross a stream for 10-20 seconds?
My ugly lightweight $30 pair of Crocs have worked just fine for several years now crossing countless creeks, rivers, & streams, in warm & cold weather. Not to mention sometimes they are nice to change into after a long day of hiking in warm & dry "boots". And quite to the contrary, the soles on the bottom of the Crocs are very 'grippy', and I have yet to have any issues slipping in them, but I'll be sure to keep yous posted if they one day fail to do the job to satisfaction.
