Taken these out once so far for a New Year's paddle and they worked really well. The water was probably in the high 40s or low fifties and my feet didn't even get damp. Granted I did have wool socks on under them so we'll see how they do in warmer weather. The grip on the bottom is solid, but not super grippy. Definitely more of a sock than a full on bootie so be aware. Overall though definitely what I was looking for and I look forward to seeing what they can do long term.

more of a sock than a moccasin, bottom was to thin for my needs .. returned item
These are the outer layer of my cold weather paddling footwear. I wear wool socks underneath my drysuit socks, and then slip these over the top. I've tried quite a few different combinations of neoprene socks, booties, and socks for cold weather paddling; the aforementioned is by far the warmest and keeps the foot-bulk low enough that I'm still comfy in my play boat.
I'm not sure how tough the kevlar part is, but I think that these will last long than regular neoprene booties. They also seem to have better traction. You'll need tough feet to walk in these on there own, but throw a pair of wool or neoprene socks underneath and they seem to be pretty protective. In any case, I think these have a place in the wardrobe of any regular whitewater paddler.
