When you're tackling trails that cross rivers and wind up mountains, you need a shoe that can dig in the dirt as well as it plays in the water. The Astral Men's Aquanaut Water Shoe is a quick-drying amphibious assault vehicle capable of trekking tough trails and crossing rocky creeks with ease. The mesh upper is highly breathable to keep your feet cool and dries quickly after you splash through a stream, and it's reinforced with Cordura and TPU panels for serious abrasion-resistance and durability. Padded ankle support and an internal heel counter provide the support you need to keep going mile after mile, and closed-cell EVA in the midsole cushions your step. It's finished off with an Agro outsole, which features toothy central lugs for traction on loose dirt and high-surface contact lugs on the perimeter for grip on slick river beds.

As good on the trail as it is in the water, the Astral Men's Aquanaut is the multi-sport shoe you'll find yourself reaching for every time you're stepping outside. As at home in the dirt as it is in the wet, the Aquanaut excels at keeping you on your feet in the warm seasons. 1000 denier CorduraA(R) upper, with abrasion-resistant reinforcement at wear points, shrugs off rough terrain. Fine-screen ripstop mesh on sides, tongue and vamp blocks debris, sheds water and ensures quick drying. The closed-cell EVA midsole cushions the foot and its drainage ports channel away water. Central lugs in the outsole for traction in loose dirt, are surrounded by a high-surface perimeter for grip on slippery river rocks. The G15(TM) high-friction rubber in the outsole is long wearing and non-marking. Foot ball and heel are at the same level for natural balance and agility. Roomy toebox allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.
