From the river, through the trail, and straight to the pub.

Kayakers will find a lot of versatility with the Astral Buoyancy Men's Brewer Water Shoe on or off the water. Its Cordura sidewalls ensure long-lasting durability and abrasion resistance, and the Airmesh vamp and tongue allow airflow to help your feet dry quickly. A drainage at the front sidewall and a slit at the heel direct water out of your shoe every time you leave the river, and the Balanced Geometry midsole cradles your foot so you can cover technical terrain easier. The G.14 sole provides excellent traction on wet rocks and slippery bar floors.

Amazing discovery

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The grip is really really surprisingly good, like a whole new level. I just feel more confident and safe and relaxed walking around wet rocks when i have these on.

They were a little bit tight around the ball but they quickly stretched out and now they feel perfect.

I always and only where these shoes now. They look rad and I keep the laces loose and can just kick em on and off, but when I need performance I just cinch em down and they transform.I also bought a pair of Rasslers which are more burly.

Light, comfortable, dry quick, bomber! Stickiest shoe I have ever had on wet rocks.

Ok yeah so this is why I love the Brewer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a kayaker with ~20 years of paddling under my belt and I live in western North Carolina. I can't lie, and I'll accept the name-calling and whatever else, because truth be told I'm a slut for the Green River Narrows. It's my home run, it's where I see my boys, and it's where I escape to get a wee bit of sanity and zen experience doing the boofity-boof and such. That's what matters, that part right there.

I don't care much for gear once I've found the right set of pieces, and then I don't think about it nor care for any of the hype surrounding "brands". But I'll tell you something straight from the heart here -------- and that is that I **love** the Astral footwear they've been making. So far I've got a pair of Bakers that I mostly use as lounge-wear I suppose, and a few months back I bought a pair of Brewers as a new boating shoe. The Brewers are super-duper fabulous.

They are comfy, fit snug, are lightweight, have ridiculously awesome grip on the those slippy rocky-rocks, and suit the Summertime creek boater so perfectly it is beyond words. Friends, you carry a throw rope for someone else's safety -- in my opinion your shoes should reflect that same care, interest, and preparedness. The Brewer gives you that. Vampie this, Cordura that; those boys have it figured out whatever it is. I just plain love them, and Thank.You.Astral.

Certainly worth giving the Brewer a go

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had my pair of brewers for over a year and I absolutely love them. I did purchase the brewer for a water shoe at first, but they quickly turned into my everyday street shoe. Astral really knows how to design a shoe that performs in the wilderness...at the same time it is supper comfortable at the pub. For boating I have yet to find a shoe that performs with grip and low profile that the brewer provides. In the desert on sandstone you should beware that you will have spiderman like powers. They dry fast, lite weight,stylish, and yes once again comfortable. I am very impressed.
