Blaze across stream crossings with the quick-draining design of the Merrell Men's Capra Rapid Water Shoe. This hydro hiker features a rapid-drying, highly breathable mesh design, complete with synthetic overlays for extra durability. Cord-lock lacing cinches tightly to alleviate any excess movement when you're scrambling up craggy summits and walking across slippery streams. The perforated footbed and midsole drainage ports alleviate the sloshing, water-logged sensation of soaked footwear. Solidifying its status as a water-friendly hiker, the M-Select Wet Grip sole offers non-slip traction across slippery stream beds and slick trails.

I was looking for a lightweight quick drying technical shoe I could use for urban bike rides, bay fishing, and hiking/canoeing/fly fishing up stream and river gravel beds to replace my 8 year old Ecco water shoes that finally blew out.
These shoes are lite as air, easy to put on and off, dry fast, and meet all of the needs I was looking for them to to meet. Gravel doesn't get in through the mesh siding when wading up stream or getting in and out of a canoe. I have had a pair of Merrell trail runners before and these wear the brand just as well...
These are perfect all around summer shoes that won't let your feet overheat on a day hike, can drain water well, and have enough give to slip in and out of without having to mess with the lace once you have it set to your foot size.
