Recent Water Shoe Reviews

L.L.Bean Discovery Sandals, Closed-Toe

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very good sandal to use when canoeing, kayaking, or just being in and around the water. Reasonably priced and very comfortable. Meets a need for a paddler with larger feet, who cannot access some other paddle shoe brands. My husband recently purchased a pair of L.L. Bean’s Discovery Sandal to use when canoeing, kayaking, or just being in and around the water. He knows I really like my Brewer water shoes, (see our review on Trailspace).  For canoeing, he has been using an inexpensive pair of neoprene… Full review

Astral Brewer

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Solid shoe for everyday use. Recently saw these on sale and needed a pair of water shoes for an upcoming trip to Dominican Republic. Received them and have worn them regularly since. Very comfortable shoe with or without socks. Shoe does not seem to hold odor in, but man do my feet stink after. Haven't had a chance to actually use them in the water except for watering the lawn/garden, but the soles seem super sticky so far. Full review

Columbia Men's Drainmaker III

rated 5 of 5 stars I do a lot of wilderness canoeing and I'm always getting my feet wet. For years I'd wear old running shoes or sandals, but recently I found a product that combines the benefits of both. The Columbia Drainmaker III is a hybrid shoe that looks and feels like a traditional running shoe, yet adds the water draining features of an open toed sandal. The secret is the breathable upper mesh that allows water to seep out, combined with 'drain ports' built into the sole of the shoe that allow the rest of… Full review

Astral Brewer

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the first pair of lace-up, shoe style water shoes I have owned, and I admit, had I not won these, I probably would still be using slip-on neoprene cheapie-type water shoes. But these are great! I have used them for many canoe outings and canoe camping trips, and I can say that I cannot imagine a better pair of shoes for my paddling needs. In deciding which size to order for this model shoes, I did some research, which indicated they may tend to run a bit small; I ordered a half size up from… Full review

Teva Men's Omnium

rated 5 of 5 stars I completed my first 100-mile ultra marathon this past weekend. The hard terrain was too much for my lightweight running shoes and the ball of my left foot was starting to hurt. At about mile 27 I switched to my Omniums (which I had received the Wednesday prior). I completed the last 73 miles of the event in my Tevas and they held up magnificently. As I said, I received them on the Wednesday prior to my Saturday race. Ironically, I only wore them once before the race because I noticed a little chaffing… Full review

Astral Porter

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, lightweight water shoe. My wife and I had Astral V-Eight PFDs. We like the design and quality of them so I bought a pair of Astral Porter Watershoes at Delaware Paddle Sports. From what I've heard the Astral Brewers are good also, but I like the non marking soles of the Porters. I wore them paddling twice without socks with no chaffing but, I wear them with low Smartwool socks just because I don't like to go sockless. After a paddle if I have soaking wet feet I'll sometimes switch… Full review

Gempler PVC Plain Toe Boots

rated 4 of 5 stars Gempler's PVC Plain Toe Boot is a nearly indestructible, waterproof boot that is perfect for caving and canyoneering. It would also have great application in canoe portages. If you ever meet a European caver, they will probably be wearing "Wellies," those big rubber boots designed for mucking about in the barnyard. The problem with Wellies is once they fill with water, you are carrying that water weight, until you drain them. Gempler's 6" Laceup PVC Boot (sold in both plain and steel toe) is an… Full review

Vivo Barefoot Women's Ultra Pure

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great, lightweight camp and water sport shoe! So far, I am extremely thrilled with this shoe. I was looking for a lightweight camping shoe to take backpacking, I wanted something more than the flip flop but nothing quite and heavy/big/clunky as crocs. These shoes don't squash down too terribly well, but they are light and easy to strap to the outside of my pack. They are great for around camp, tying the bear bag, late night trips into the brush, etc. They let your feet breathe and you can wear… Full review

Teva Men's Churn

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent shoe. Excellent shoes, period. Not just water shoes, but everyday walking shoes. In fact I have been wearing almost nothing but these Teva Churns for about five years now. Almost have worn out one pair and set them aside for work shoes like digging in the garden or whatever dirty work. Wearing a pair now that is about 1.5 to 2 years old and have two more pairs still brand new in the box waiting on deck for when my daily pair wears out. I have yet in 5 years even worn them in the water… Full review
