Best Water Shoes Yet!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I recently purchased these boots, so my review is based on minimal experience. That being said, these are the best water shoes I've ever work. I recently did some river hopping up Road Prong in Cherokee, NC. Unlike most Chacos I've experienced in water/slippery rocks, these did NOT slip. Where I would be sure to fall with any other shoe, these boots gripped. I was not hesitant to make any maneuver. They also allow nothing but water in them, no sand/dirt. They drain fast. The high tops gave me ankle suppport. After playing in the water, I did a 2 mile hike up to Chimney Tops. Its a very steep hike. The shoes performed great as hiking shoes. The Chimney Tops itself is a giant, steep rockface to climb up. The shoes again, did not slip. Highly recommended shoe. Lets just hope they are durable and have a high life expectancy. So far, very minimal wear.

Cons: They smell bad, as all Chaco's tend to as soon as they get wet.

the only con i can find this far is that they dont stay tied very well. I have to double knot them if i want them to stay on
