This shoe is awesome and unlike anything I have ever tried, and I've been through about four pair of shoes looking for the right ones. This is it. I race lightweight carbon fiber canoes. Most recently I paddled a 70 mile marathon in Cooperstown, NY wearing this shoe. I loved it. My feet get wet and then dry fast, and these shoes work very well on the terrain for the portages.
