Simari Water Shoe
I'm always looking for good water shoes to use on my canoe and kayak adventures. Recently a company called SIMARI sent me a pair of water shoes to evaluate. I took the opportunity to try them out on a recent island vacation where I spent most of my time beachcombing and kayaking.
- Very lightweight
- Good water drainage
- Well made
- Very good traction
- Very thin soles
- No toe guards
For the price (about $20) these are very good water shoes. They are comfortable to wear, have good grip and drain water well, but at first glance, they seem a bit flimsy and only time will tell how durable they are. For most general water sports they will probably be ideal, I just don't think they would be a proper fit (pardon the pun) for the kind of hard-core canoe expeditions I typically venture out on.
I've edited together a video review of these reasonably priced Simari water shoes. Please have a look:
I use water shoes all the time throughout the summer on various canoe/kayak backcountry adventures. However, I received the shoes in this review during the winter and have only used them during a week-long island vacation, so the long-term durability is still an unknown.
