the only canyoning shoe...

these shoes are brilliant for what they are designed to be...fine for approach hike, stick like the proverbial to rocks, wet or dry - the soles on these shoes have no equal...the boot is heavy tho - just look at the amount of rubber and rear lug/heal support (remember these are a canyoning boot!), so not optimal for long hikes ie. 5+ miles...BUT as a fully functioning water shoe...i don't think they have an equal...with neoprene socks, there's not too much water that can stop them. Used throughout WWR/canyoning season in Japan - flawless. highly recommend. Fit is high volume, so if a narrower less arched foot, suggest a half size smaller, even if planning on neoprene socks to accompany.
