I use the Reel Deal as a running shoe for both road and trail. I have found that wearing my wool socks work great at keeping my feet dry from perspiration so my feet don't slide around. Never have had them soaked so don't know how they would work after being fully immersed but otherwise had decent traction.
For my purpose it's good product. Could be a little thicker in the sole as I can usually feel individual rocks along the trail. A good all around performer.

Gallivanting around in sandals is fun ... until you get a broken toe and are out of commission for the summer. The Columbia Men's Reel Deal Sandal uses toe-wrap protection that is integrated with the outsole so there's at least a layer between your toes and nasty river-rocks. An external molded cage and a nylon shank boost torsional rigidity and support, and a dual-rubber compound on the outsole grips wet and dry surfaces.
