great shoes but poor without socks
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
1st let me say with having a wide foot and high arch few shoes fit me well and these fit great. I usually get half a size bigger for easy slip on / slip off but I bought it my normal size (cleat or tight lace shoe size) due to the review that said they ran big. They fit perfect.
NOT A BAREFOOT SHOE, unfortunately... They are hugely flawed by the stitching in the heal. why put in nice heal padding and then stitch though the middle of it....? after one day my heals were bleeding... not blistered and torn but the stitching actually scratched the skin right off. So basically buy a pair of neoprene socks like "Sealskinz"or these shoes will be worthless.
*I cut up a pair of neoprene socks and fashioned them into the heal for barefoot use. I love them now!
even more comfortable when wet
very good support
easy to take on and off
great grip even on wet rocks
Sperry Top-Sider Pine Buckle Water Shoe
No Bueno for Canyoneering
I don't do much boating but I certainly do a lot of canyoneering and the hard part about canyoneering is finding a good pair of shoes for the hike in that also don't absorb a ton of water and stick to the wet sand-stone in Zion. I am also always looking for something a little less expensive than what Five Ten has to offer.
Well, these shoes are not going to fit that bill at all. They're big and floppy (wide) which I'm assuming is to accommodate a thick neoprene sock for kayakers. There's pretty much zero support and if you try the shoes without socks on, they're jagged on your feet. I did not have a chance to try the grip on a wet surface so I can't comment on how they do there. Despite all that complaining, they do have a squishy foot bed like no other shoe I've ever worn.
Granted, I know these shoes weren't designed for the activity that I was buying them for which is why they aren't getting zero stars. Just know that if you're looking for an alternative to the Canyoneer 2, these are not it.
