Drainmaker, hear me roar!
August 19, 2011 triumph! I wore these for the Irvine Mud Run 2011, and they were fantastic. While people were "Augh!"-ing and lamenting their poor feetsies, their lost shoes and socks (literally, shoes were stuck in mud), I was just trotting along in my Drainmakers, feeling like I was running in a dream. The shoes are light, very comfortable, and they clean up really well. I'd recommend these to anyone who hikes and passes through streams too--the grip is great.

Pros: lightweight, worth the price, great colors, comfortable

I really like these shoes

It is well designed and fast drying. I spent a whole week hiking in the lake tahoe and stepped into water by accident, these shoes really helped me a lot! I love them!!

Very nice colors, comfortable, light unfortunately I didn't have a chance to wear them yet so I don't know how they "behave" in the water but look well made also good for walking just for every day use.. Recommended

Great sneaker/water shoe combo!
October 14, 2011

I bought my drainmakers specifically for a zip lining trip which would involve a lot of walking up stairs, and landing in water. The shoes were very lightweight, comfortable and drained quickly. I even swam with my shoes on and they drained promptly when I was on land again. I never felt like I had puddles sloshing around in my shoes. I did a lot of walking in them and they were very comfortable with the exception of rubbing against my heel and taking off some skin, but this was the very first time I wore them, and on bare skin so I assume they just need to be worn out a bit...either way, it was nothing that a quick band-aid couldn't fix. Love them, worth the money, will get a lot of use out of them.

Pros: lightweight, drain well, comfortable walking shoe

Great Purchase
August 01, 2011

I do a lot of water sports and have bought a lot of water shoes. The Drainmaker Water shoe is excellent for snorkeling and hiking in and along the streams. The shoe drains 99% of the water while giving good support.

These shoes are absolutely amazing. I just bought them for a backpacking trip next weekend and am so excited to use the very comfortable and light weight shoes. While they did run a little big, everything else about the shoe is perfect for hiking and running, and backpacking too! Highly recommend them!

Pros: pretty shoes for water shoes, Cons: ran big
