Instead of squishing and squashing when you wade out of the river or ocean, try the Columbia Women's Drainmaker Shoe. Its breathable open cell mesh upper with durable TPU toe cap and built-in drainage ports in the heel and forefoot allow for water to easily escape, so you're not lugging a ton of water around in your shoes. Columbia gave this shoe the feel of a lightweight running shoe with its meshy fabric upper, and lugged Omni-Grip Wet Grip rubber sole. Its Techlite midsole also provides you plenty of comfort when traversing across a small steam or walking across a stony shoreline when the tide has gone out.


The Drainmaker water shoes from Columbia combine lightweight comfort and quick-dry capabilities to create a perfect pair of summer shoes for all of your adventures on and around the water. Drainmaker water shoes feature breathable mesh uppers and durable thermoplastic urethane toe caps for protection. Polyester linings wick moisture away from feet for cool, dry comfort. Closed-cell foam midsoles and heels provide lightweight cushioning with every step. Fully drainable footbed allows water to drain quickly.

For sweet kayaking trips along the river, weekend fishing at the lake or whatever other type of watersport and water-related activity you can think of, make certain to step into the Women's Columbia Drainmaker Water Shoe before getting your feet wet. Made with an open cell sandwich mesh upper that offers superior breathability and moisture management, these hybrid running and water shoes also offer extra drainage through strategically placed ports in the heel and forefoot of its Techlite midsole, as well as a fully drainable footbed. And as if that wasn't enough, the Columbia Drainmaker Water Shoe for women provides full traction with a siped and lugged outsole constructed from Omni-Grip Wet Grip rubber, so you can trail run, fish on the rocks and portage your kayak with full-on, no-slip grip.
