Best Boat shoe ever, good-bye old crocs!
May 28, 2011

I ordered this because I was tired of slipping on the deck with my crocs, tired of weird tan lines and sunburns on my feet from flip-flops and because I wanted something that would grip well, dry fast and protect my feet from the sun and on the shore. These shoes fit the bill and they are very comfortable to boot! I am going to buy another pair as a back-up in case they stop making them when these wear out.

Pros: comfortable, stylish, quick drying

My husband loves these shoes! Wears hiking, kayaking, and everyday! Very breathable and they dry quickly! He loves that he doesn't have to worry about sand or rocks getting in his shoes when we are kayaking. The only thing you have to worry about is your feet getting more dust and dirt when hiking...And that is hardly a worry. He would buy another pair and one for me too! Love them!

Pros: great water shoes, great hiking shoes, great everyday shoes, very comfortable, very flexible

Drainmaker ala Mexico
June 20, 2011

I bought this shoe for a trip to Mexico. Overall it did amazing. I spent two weeks abroad and spent a ridiculously large amount of time in them. They performed exceptionally in and out of the water. Pro's Lightweight comfortable with or without socks good looks Cons Uppers DO NOT dry well at all! No arch support with stock insoles tend to wear quickly (Constructed of weak materials)

Pros: lightweight, Cons: uppers do not dry well!

best shoe of its kind all in one usage. a hybrid shoe that combines the lightweight comfort of a running shoe with the quick-dry capabilities of a water shoe. Wet/dry traction for sure footing on slick surfaces.

Pros: lightweight, dries fast, cool breathable, Cons: have not found one yet

Extremely light on your feet
June 21, 2011

This is a good shoe if you like having minimum weight on your feet. This shoe could be considered Columbia's version of a minimalist shoe, with a better price and less cliche. I find this shoe extremely convenient on hot days, they keep your feet cool and well ventilated. And you can fully submerge them and have them dried quicker than most water shoes.

Pros: light, dries very quickly
