Frequently Asked Questions

What are water shoes?

Water shoes, also called aqua or wet shoes, are footwear explicitly designed for use in and around water. They improve grip on slippery surfaces and help protect your feet from rocks and other hazards.

What are water shoes made of?

The best water shoes are typically made from quick-drying fabrics suitable for use in water, such as mesh and a rubber sole.

Are water shoes waterproof?

No, water shoes are not waterproof. They are designed to let water flow through and drain quickly.

Can I wear socks with water shoes?

Yes, you can wear socks with water shoes to add additional warmth and foot protection.

Can I wear water shoes as regular shoes?

Yes. Some models, particularly mesh versions, are designed to be used around town and on the water. Neoprene-based water shoes typically don’t breathe well, so they may get warm and sweaty when out of the water.

A good pair of paddling shoes can make or break your day on the water! You’ve got to get your boat down to the water without bruising your feet or slipping on wet rocks. Those kayak shoes must sometimes fit in a tight cockpit with a slight foot area. Or maybe you’re more concerned about your feet staying warm as you launch your kayak at the shore. Finding the perfect pair of kayaking shoes can be as important as picking out your boat! Here, we will discuss several styles of kayak footwear for whatever type of paddling you do. It’s all about comfort, safety, and practicality! 

Let’s start with sandals. The Chaco Men’s Z1 and Women’s Z1 are a good pair of classic river Sandals. You’ll see many river guides and summer kayakers wearing Chacos because of their fantastic non-marking, no-slip ChacoGrip rubber soles, and durability for years and years. Another excellent boating sandal option is the Astral Men’s and Women’s PFD Sandals. Astral has used its super sticky G Rubber to provide superior grip on wet and dry surfaces and a zero drop level footbed for additional balance and stability. You can run, jump, swim, and climb in and around the river with the PFD Sandals.

You may be looking for more of a river shoe that looks good enough to wear around town after the paddle. Look no further than the Astral Men's Brewer 2.0 Water Shoes and the Women’s version, the Astral Women's Brewess 2.0 Water Shoes. These are some of the best water shoes ever made for kayaking. They provide all the performance and technical features you need for kayaking and other water adventures. They have a quick-draining sole, non-absorbing water-ready uppers, and razor-siped, non-marking outsoles. And they look like regular sneakers, too!
