Light footwear for ski touring

If you’re backcountry touring and need to train/hitch/etc to the start, it’s awkward (though funny) to wear boots. What is a really light shoe you can take with you? This focuses on mass not volume.

Brooks Hyperion Tempo420g$180
Nike vaporfly390g$330
Adidas Adizero Pro372g$360
Nike Free RN Flyknit381g$170
New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon426g$180
Merrell vapor glove 6 320g$110

There are more barefoot style shoes like the Merrll. too.

So either Nike Free RN Flyknit (thicker, warmer sole) or Merrell vapor glove 6 (thinner, cold sole, lighter)
