Great Multipurpose Shoe
August 22, 2005
I've worn these shoes in several adventure races with no problems. They drain exceptionally well when transitioning from water to land and stayed tight on my feet when running and mountain biking. Highly recommended, especially for the price.

I've owned a pair for quite a while and now that they're getting thread-bare, I'm going to be purchasing another pair for sure. These shoes are so light in the water that even swimming is unhindered. Superb on-land traction and light-weight design makes these an essential spare shoe to keep clipped onto your pack. In regard to previous comments about the loop which is formed when the Quicktie is taut, it can be tucked into an elastic patch in the top of the tongue. Don't pass these shoes up.
Loved them right out of the box

I hate ordering shoes through the mail because they never fit or feel right. Not so with these shoes. I ordered them just before leaving for Mexico and was afraid they would not fit right (as usual). But, to my surprise, I tried them on and they felt great. I have been wearing them daily now for a month or so and couldn't be happier.
Perfect in every way!

Very reliable company. My husband is thrilled with his Techamphibian water shoes!

I bought these water shoes for my boyfriend and he loves them. They are his second pair (first ones got stolen......Im sure they are enjoying them too!) They are light weight, comfortable and really versatile. Perfect for the summer to creek walk, hike and run.
Great Multipurpose Shoe
May 24, 2008
I just bought my second pair of these shoes. I had the first ones for almost four years using them for all kind of activities, from water sports to hiking and daily summer use, in stead of sandals, which do not provide the same level of protection and stability. They are simply great, however the mesh and the loop is not that robust, but a replacement loop can be bought!
Great service and a great product!

I've been wearing nothing but Salomon shoes for over six years. These may be the best yet. Great ventilation, almost zero drying time, and pretty good support for such a lightweight shoe.
Pocket for the Ties
August 20, 2005
Just noticed Bruce's comment about neding a place for the laces. There is a little pocket right on top to tuck in the laces. I didn't see that at first myself. We haven't tried them in water without socks, but with socks they look like regular tennis shoes, but are cooler on the feet.
Great shoe for Water Walking in a pool!
December 22, 2007
Lightweight and very good traction for my water walking, 3 to 4 times a week for 1 to 2 hours per session, in a swimming pool at the Health Club
Outstanding outdoor footwear
October 01, 2008
Breathable, comfortable and supportive for long walks while touring in Italy. Best "Summer" shoe that I own.
Great performance shoe
December 22, 2009
I purchased these as a personal request from my son for a Christmas gift. Although he selected them, I'm sure with his active lifestyle, they'll be a perfect companion for the beach, hiking, climbing, or whatever. Thank you for your prompt delivery to California!!

These are the best wet / dry trainers I've ever had, they are very comfy, quick drying and most of all they look the dog's doo-da's in the flesh. Great.
These shoes are great, in and around the water.
June 17, 2008
They fit great. No skin issues wet or dry. Great traction wet or dry also fit like a sneaker.
They work great and are very comfortable
July 21, 2005
I think these shoes are fantastic. They fit great, are very comfortable, are made well, and have great traction.
September 07, 2005
These are the most comfortable water shoes that I have ever owned. Great value and a great shoe!
June 13, 2010
These shoes are perfect for the river...gotta have em..black is the hot color....high five!
Light, Cool Shoe
July 12, 2006
Shoes are light and are great for traveling. The laces are futuristic, try them, if the laces break (as some people mentioned) JUST REPLACE THEM WITH "NORMAL LACES" The eyelets lend themselfs well to normal, thin laces!! Again a light fresh shoe that is great for hot travel.
Men's Techamphibian 2 Shoe
February 28, 2012
I have used these shoes for years in the outdoor arena. I just purchased my third pair, due to the fact that my dogs have chewed my previous two pairs..... They are fantastically comfortable while I'm in the canoe and then I don't have to change shoes at all to set-up camp, go for a hike or whatever the call of the wild throws at me.Cons: my dogs love to chew them...

Just returned from few weeks extreme rafting in Siberia. These are very comfortable from the start. They do leave some rough edges inside the toe ares so some type of socks are important. Traction on land is fantastic, probable best I've experienced for water shoes. Traction on submerged rocks is sketchy. I learned to take helping hands of the Russians on fordings. But they never said they had sticky rubber soles so I can't say much. The speed lace system is great but finding a place for the loop that forms is tricky. Tucking into the heel makes for painful walks. I worry about catching on anything if left out. Maybe a little pocket built-in would help. I was surprized how easily one came off when in the water but learned to keep the heel strap nice and snug. Hopefully I won't have the opportunity to test this again with the tighter heel. Bottom line: Great shoe that comes in extended sizes, supportive, great traction under most conditions and easy to put on and off. Recommend they add a little sticky on the sole and a cord pocket and maybe some smoothing of inside seams for bare feet (something I rarely do).

these shoes are great. i spend a lot of time on a pool deck and a lot of time in a kayak...these shoes were bought with this in mind. i love these. actually, i wish i had purchased them a long time ago. my buddy has a pair as well, and he is also very pleased.
September 04, 2006
So great....wish my sneakers were this comfortable!!
July 10, 2008
I wear them all year long except winter. They are very sturdy and comfortable, I highly recommend them for any kind of activity.
May 22, 2005
These are great! If you are in or around water during the summer, you will love these shoes. They will not bog you down in the water as they do not carry any water weight after you submerge them.
Absolutely the best!
April 08, 2007
Great traction, stability & comfort. In addition to the beach, I used them climbing hills & walking in the crowded streets of the Bahamas. Fantastic! I'm buying another pair because I know I'm going to wear these out.
May 07, 2006
When I saw them, I had to buy them. I have been looking for some "sandals that look like this for a long time. I think "normal" sandals look stupid and dorky. But these were perfect.
January 16, 2008
Since I was trying to pack light for a vacation, I was searching for a water shoe that would double as a sneaker. These look great with anything and I've worn them with slacks, jeans and bathing suits. The slick surfaces around the pools, boat deck, and coast line of the shore were easily handled by the superior traction the Techamphibian's provided. I highly recommend these.
August 18, 2007
Thanks for advice from Customer Service. Shoes were great. After hours in the saddle on the Continental Divide,dealing with rain,wet boots and cold these shoes were comfortable and light. Traction on rocky surface was excellent. Fishing in cold mountain streams demanded both traction and light/comfort. They dried out so quickly that by morning shoes were ready for camp chores.Can't say enough. Easy put on, on cold mornings with single pull of draw string. Heel adjust is a simple tug. I was looking for another pair of shoes and if not for customer service advice would have made a big mistake. Thanks!
Men's Techamphibian Water Shoe ..Awesome
June 16, 2006
Great item, I bought these for 5 men in my family for Father's Day.. they all loved them.. Thanks
comfortable with or without socks
August 31, 2006
I wear these shoes launching kayaks off the beach and they keep the small rocks out from under my arch. for hiking i wear them with a thin pair of bike socks and they work out well.
July 12, 2006
voor alle nederlanders De bestelling is heel gemakkelijk, maar niet goedkoop
October 14, 2011
It was very confortable and held up well. Would recommend... I use in lake a hiking areas. You will have to get used the front strap. But it is not a problem.
September 13, 2006
Love this show-extremely comfortable, and cool looking (for me). They are my favorite shoes and I will continue to purchase from Altrec.com and buy Salomon shoes!
November 26, 2006
I bought the shoes for my husband, after buying a pair for my self elsewhere. He liked the design so much he thought he would try them on our upcoming Christmas vacation in Oahu.He will use them for flyfishing from the lava shore. Also treking down the beach.
March 24, 2008
I love these shoes. I have neuropathy in my feet and take water aerobics five days per week to reduce the pain and try to lose weight. These shoes are very comfortable and don't slip in the pool. I highly recommend these shoes. True fit.
Love these shoes!
May 25, 2005
I'm on my second pair, and I couldn't be happier with a pair of outdoor shoes. I wear them in the desert (yes, I know they're water shoes) because of the superior cooling they offer. Sandals just don't cut it here in Arizona, especially out in the brush. Bottom line, just buy them - you won't regret it.
May 17, 2005
Your service and follow-up were exceptional and I like my new Solomon water shoes so well that I bought an extra pair. My Solomons are like a sandal that fit like a shoe....
July 03, 2007
I found these in the clearance bin by accident, I just couldn't pass on them. Now I love them! I wear them to the beach, biking, they do it all. I plan to take them to Spain later this summer as my ONLY shoes, when they wear out, I will buy another pair.
Techamphibian 2 around the house samba
April 07, 2011
14 inches of ice topped by slush and snow still on lakes, I walk these extremely light-weight beauties around the house, the wet bath tub even( which they grip), and they fit like a dream. My feet and Salomon's fit means an 11.5, where with others it's sometimes 11. I looked at all the others--the Merrell's came in 2nd.Pros: feather-light
On my 3 pair
July 11, 2006
Great shoe...more fuctional that teva sandals. yet they have the cushioning of tevas. Provide more protection for your entire foot, compared to sandals. I use them for everything...work, gym, fly fishing, boating, etc etc. You cant go wrong with these shoes!!!!
February 16, 2006
Great shoe but after a couple months the laces break and they arent exactly the type you can just go get a replacement on...had this had on both pairs ive owned.
June 26, 2006
Great stuff, really confortable and they last long. I'm on my second pair. The agion antimicrobial system its not as great as i thought.
May 20, 2007
I have had these shoes about three weeks, I use them to do my yard work, and pool cleaning. I got these because I trash your average water sock in about three months, so far this shoe has held up.
Very comfortable and true to size
July 24, 2005
My husband started wearing these right out of the box and seems to love them. He has a hard time getting sandals and shoes to fit on the heel and the adjustable heel straps on these shoes help with that. He also likes and needs the toe protection. They were very easy to get on and off and run true to size. Had considered getting Keen water sandals but thought they looked dorky, but these look great on, with or without socks. Highly recommend these cool looking water shoes.
September 06, 2005
I mow lawns and needed to get air to my wet feet. Boots stayed wet all the day, but now I dry out wearing lycra socks and my Solomons.
good, but narrow in the forefoot
August 09, 2011
I used these on a mountain backpack in the rural Philippines. They're great in concept, but as others have said, the fit is narrow. Fine for me in the heel -- actually, the heel fit is fantastic b/c it's adjustable -- but a bit tight in the forefoot. Other than the fit, they're great. Breathable, easy draining, easy to clean the mud off (remove the insoles). I'll wear them again next trip, too, but the fit isn't perfect.
Comfortable Water shoe
February 13, 2012
Like many of the other posters I have to agree the shoe is a little narrow but I like it anyway. This is a water shoe that I think I would have no problem running in. I have not been able to get them wet yet but Belize is coming in just 9 days.Pros: could almost use as a running shoe that fit so wel, Cons: a little narrow
Comfortable either wet or dry!!!
August 30, 2005
Great for rafting or wet conditions trail running. I am totally please with Salomon's construction of both the sole and breathable mesh. Its a great shoe for cheap..
I love these shoes!
March 17, 2008
