Astral Women's Brewess Shoes - The original shoe that truly represents the Astral lifestyle, the Brewess kayaks, rafts, works, drinks, rides and travels with you everywhere. Seriously lightweight, simplified construction eliminates materials that hold water and odor, resulting in a very light shoe. Astral's stickiest G-Rubber compound (G.SS) strikes the fine balance between friction and traction. Balanced, high-cushion EVA midsoles mold to the naturally level, contoured footbeds. Holes along the midsole drain water while mesh at the vamp and tongue vent hot air. The heel also has a slit at the bottom for sand/water drainage, and easily folds down for clogging. The Astral Brewess excels in versatility, and with its classic good looks can go just about anywhere.

The Astral Women's Brewess is a kayaking shoe for all walks of life. It's both a water shoe and a casual shoe. Hop out of your boat and stroll to the pub in style. This is a water shoe that looks as good as it performs. It is so lightweight - less than 8 ounces (214 grams)! This minimalist construction also reduces use of toxic adhesives. The upper is made with CorduraA(R) and Airmesh for durable, breathable performance. G.SS(TM) rubber in the outsole gives you outstanding wet or dry traction. The rockered toe helps the front of the shoe ride up over rocks and is naturally articulated for the kayaking position. The shoe has plenty of drainage ports in sidewalls, sole and heel to rapidly get rid of water. EVA foam in the Balanced Geometry midsole provides cushioning comfort and protection from sticks and stones. The Brewess also has a step-down heel so you can wear it as a slip-on when you're not likely to get chundered. Marking sole.


Wear these lightweight women's water shoes for all things water, including kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding. They're also a fun, casual choice for warm summer nights on the town.
