Awesomeness

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

Bought my Salomans five years ago and still going strong a ever. Nearly perfect shoe both in the water and out. Like any shoe can be a bit smelly but goes with the territory!

Good shoes but not great

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I like these shoes as they provide me with the necessary protection while at the same time keep my feet cool and breathing. They dry quickly and they feel comfortable on almost any kind of terrain.
My only objection (and a serious one) is that its impossible for the heel closure to stay tightened.
Of course, these shoes are made for specific activities one of which is NOT trail running.

too bad, have you found a shoe that is great in water as well as running in?

great WATER Shoes -

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Bought these for my trip to Hawaii - well made, fit well and comfortable. Great traction in and out of the water. I dont know why anybody would judge them harshly for not being well made for running/jogging? hello?They are water shoes and great ones at that. Perhaps try some"jogging" shoes if that is what you will be doing....

WATER SHOES!

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

These are being rather harshly rated for what they are not ( hiking, running, long walking, trail running) rather than for what they are ( water sport shoes). As water sport shoes they work very well for their intended purpose with decent grip on slimy rocks and mud, drain so fast there is no residual water inside, keep smaller rocks out ( sand and fine mud can get in though), can be used swimming with ought peril and provide a close enough fit that brief hikes are doable. I have used them fishing and walking stream beds to photograph, kayaking, and as foot protection walking through low flood waters. Previous foot ware was a "T" branded water sandal which these exceed in every way. Except perhaps looks

WATER SHOE

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a pair of these for a few years now, and for water sports they are phenomenal. They wear well, the rubber gives great traction when wet on most surfaces, and they add a little protection. I like them better than Keen models because they aren't as beefy and give you more sensitivity when wading which helps me find good foot placements. I wear these fly fishing, kayaking, and generally messing around the water. I also tossed some thin wool socks on with these and trekked around Mallorca Spain up to 10 miles per day without blisters, but I wouldn't agree with the tech specs that recommend these for 'hiking'.

Heel closure no good - not for running

I procured these shoes for trail running which they are clearly not intended for.
The heel closure (strip of webbing and a plastic buckle) does NOT stay tightened down. I have actually resorted to safety pins to keep the proper fit in the heel (see image).

Otherwise, they are good shoes. I've even used them on a 10 mile trail run the famous Kansas City PsycoWyco (safety pin and all).

Just came back after test-running the shoe jogging on paved road with lots of hills. My feet are useless after that with a giant blister caused by one of the inside supports. I only made it 5 miles before stopping from severe pain. Cannot imagine anyone doing 10 miles in this shoe. I was hoping for a water shoe that could be used for running and long hikes. They looked the part but definitely didn't perform.

Grand Canyon Workhorse

So in a nutshell - MIXED REVIEW - great shoe in terms of footing, security (never had to worry about it coming off), durability. However, in an environment where small rocks, dirt, sand etc can get caught in the shoe and it mixes with the Colorado River, it became its downfall. I was climbing on and across slippery, loose, narrow and challenging surfaces and the shoe performed well however the heel allowed in debris that caused cuts, blisters on both heels and under one foot. In certain environments there is not an opportunity to dump out the shoe. I would consider returning them (need to read return policy) as my son used a pair of Columbia shoes (similar design) which performed very well but provides mesh around the entire shoe and he escaped without any foot issues.

I fell

like others have mention the toes section is narrow. My small toes rubs on both shoe so i have to wear socks. I haven't used it much so maybe they just have to break in. in terms of function the water drain out well when used them at the beach area but that also means that sand and gravel also filled my shoes. The worst part was walking down a slop in the morning and losing my footing. I landed on my bottom. Everyone was shocked because I was the only one wearing shoes. I should have just wore sandals instead.

Narrow fit

Shoes had a very narrow fit. Quality and styling were great. I would recommend to any one that had narrow feet. But for a wider foot, get Keens version of an amphibious shoe.

One more thing

I like the little sack, to tuck the extra lace in. It seemed very useful. I wish the new shoes I got, had that little pouch.
