Size: I ordered 5.5-6; and since the enclosure was close to the ankle, I had no problem with it slipping off from the back of my heels, (FYI my left foot is only size 5 due to Polio) Quick dry: Notice that the entire shoe is not made of plastic, or rubber, so we can not expect this to dry up quickly with in minutes of coming out of the water or getting wet; But unless you continue to wear them with your wet socks, the inside of the shoes dont feel bothersome after about 30 minutes or so Traction: I am 66 yo, 115lbs 4 ft 11 in height and had never hiked; but our trip to the Colorado mountains, waterfall trails turned out so incredible! No injuries, no fatigue (leg cramps); and we did it in 3 consecutive days!! From the soft trails of the River side in Grand Junction, to the Devils Kitchen Canyon hike also in GJ, to the Cascade waterfall in Ouray, Colorado!!! All hiking, water trekking were so wonderful and fatigue free. And most of all I got to enjoy all of these with my grandkids. Price: Unbeatable!!! Advice: a MUST for everyone
I absolutely love these shoes. I purchased water shoes for tubing. Although, it’s expected to stay in a tube the whole time I knew I would need to get out if we had become stuck or flipped over. However, we decided to take our dog and I knew he would want to jump out at least a few times. I forgot I had purchased them our first time down out of 3. Fully regretted! I stubbed my toes. Swore I had broken them. The rocks hurt! You bet I remembered the next 2 times. Felt like I walking barefoot. Light weight. Didn’t feel as if my feet were soaked. Plus, they looked very cool! Super happy with my purchase. Didn’t even have a scratch after using them two times and having to walk around in water and on sand dunes. I forgot to mention 2 people lost their phones! (May or may not have been me) I was able to trudge through the water quickly without any pain. Luckily a friend found it!
These are a great buy!! Very comfortable, needed a pair of shoes to wear to the river for kayaking and I think these will be perfect! They fit good around the ankle, I was worried it would be too loose due to my small ankles. They tighten and adjust easily and the inside sole is easily removable. I did have to send my first pair back. I read several reviews saying they run big, so I played it safe and went down just a half a size from my normal shoe size. Returned and went down a whole shoe size. I’m normally a 6.5 but can also where a 7. But they are definitely on the large side and the 5.5 fit perfect. If you are gonna wear them with any type of sock then possibly just a half size down would do, but I think that I could still wear a sock and mine would be just as roomy.
I just received these shoes a couple of hours ago here at my work. I have not been able to test them in the water yet, so I hope I remember to update later, but I tried them on and wore them around the shop a little bit to see how they feel. I read several of the reviews before my purchase, and wasnt sure if i should go down a half size or full size since they almost all said they ran large. I wear a size 9 US womens, and ordered a size 8. They fit absolutely perfect. Not too loose, not too tight. Perfect. They seem to be pretty comfortable walking on flat ground. The real test, and why I even bought them, was to see how well they hold up on all the rocks in the creek. So as soon as i know, i will let yall know. Get em.
I bought the grey/beige shoes for kayaking, but because they are so cute, comfortable, and grip well, I also wear them in the yard, when I go fishing, when it rains, and when it hasn’t rained! I plan to buy a pair for my elderly mother to slip on when she takes her dog out. I have not yet washed these shoes; however, I really don’t anticipate problems in that area- They air dry quickly. The size is spot on as well. Be aware: because they are water shoes, they can get warm after a few hours if you are not in the water.
