    From the river, through the trail, and straight to the pub.

    Kayakers will find a lot of versatility with the Astral Buoyancy Men's Brewer Water Shoe on or off the water. Its Cordura sidewalls ensure long-lasting durability and abrasion resistance, and the Airmesh vamp and tongue allow airflow to help your feet dry quickly. A drainage at the front sidewall and a slit at the heel direct water out of your shoe every time you leave the river, and the Balanced Geometry midsole cradles your foot so you can cover technical terrain easier. The G.ss sole provides excellent traction on wet rocks and slippery bar floors.

    great water shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11

    Great water shoe with really good grip on rocks. I do some rafting but mostly use them kayaking and wet wading while fly-fishing. Doing great so far but hoping they are tough enough. (I tend to abuse shoes)
    I went down a half size because I don't wear socks with them.

    Very versatile shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    My dad and I have always been fans of Astral PFDs in the past but when I found out they made shoes as well, bought a pair of these for my dad for his birthday! I asked him how he liked them and the old river rat freakin' loves them!! He already wears them on a daily basis just as a normal shoe which works for him because he calls himself an "urban fisherman". So he can still go fish at his favorite spots in town and still be able to have dry shoes in 30-45 minutes after fishing for whatever else he wants to go do! All in all, these shoes are great! You can take them on the town, trail, river, boat, basically where ever! The rubber is super sticky, they have great support and the fit is true to size! I definitely suggest getting a pair!

    Great functional shoe

    • Fit: True to size

    Got a pair of these for my Dad and this is what he had to say. I recommended these because of their reputation in wet conditions and comfort.

    "I wear them almost on a constant basis for casual use (very comfortable), and I have even worn them to my business where we are a “wet environment” ( a natural stone fabrication facility ) and they are everything they promise in terms of their grip. Perhaps the acid test, however, was when I took them to a three day industry expo and was literally on my feet for eight plus hours a day. They were great! I’m not sure any other shoe would have been so kind to my legs and feet. I can’t wait to use them for some mountain hiking and some fly fishing."


    Low water boating

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

    These are great water shoes. I got these for a low water Middle Fork of the Salmon river trip. I knew we would be bumping bottom and getting stuck on rocks so I wanted something I could jump in and out of the raft to push off of rocks. These worked out great and are super solid.

    Hit me up if you have questions on them or want a pair.

    Exactly what it claims to be

    The brewer shoe does exactly what it says it does. It drains and dries very fast and is comfortable enough to walk around in all day long. I love how light they are too and they look great off the river as well. They have awesome grip on slippery river beds and the only little quirk about them is the sole on the inside of the shoe. Astral put some star looking logos on the inside and until they get worn down a bit it kinda feels like there is a rock or debris in the shoe. I've only noticed this when I don't have a sock on tho and they went away quickly.

    I'd recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a good shoe to be in and out and back in to the water.

    *It was a bummer ordering these for a float trip and being reassured by a rep that they would arrive on time. I ordered on a Saturday morning and they didn't arrive until a Wednesday night. We had to leave Wednesday around noon so I had to go get some other shoe from REI. Backcountry has always been so good to me but I'd be lying if my feelers weren't a bit hurt after this.

    Still, buy the shoe, you won't regret it.

    Great everyday shoe

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

    What I love most about the Brewer is how breathable they are. My feet sweat more than I'd like to admit and I found these to be better at keeping my feet dry than any other shoe. The fit is a little on the narrow side but not too significant.

    My next favorite feature of the Brewer is how sticky the outsole is. The lugs aren't prominent but the G.14 rubber keeps me on my feet unlike anything I've used before (besides climbing shoes of course).

    I've wore them for around three months now and no sign of wear on the outsole. I can't wait to test them out in some creeks/rivers flyfishing over the summer!

    Absolutely LOVE these outdoor sneaks from Astral!! ...the rubber is super grippy on wet rocks, the shoes are very comfortable, lightweight, and versatile. I carry these in my pack when I go hiking or climbing, use them kayaking, or pair them with a pair of jeans and grab a brew at my local brewery. Only thing I wouldn't do is rock climb in them, but I might even give that a try...

    Great Paddling Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    Astral shoes are the best for on the water. The BREWERS are great river paddling shoes. The BREWER has sticky rubber like Five Ten. I wear the BREWERS when it is warm (Yak/I.K., Tube, SUP) and the Five Ten Water Tenies with neoprene booties when it is colder. I also have the PORTER for sailing because they have non-marking soles. Breathable, self-bailing and fast drying. I love all these shoes.

    More than a great paddling shoe.

    I just got my Brewers about 3 weeks ago, and I have a confession to make. Aside from the obvious, I HAVEN'T TAKEN THEM OFF! These shoes are awesome scouting your next line, or just waiting in line at the store. So comfortable. I've SUP'd with them on down class II - III whitewater. I've been skating with them almost every single day and I haven't even seen any wear from the grip tape. These are handling everything I throw at them. Thanks for making such a bomber product.

    More than a great paddling shoe.

    Best Paddling Shoe. Period.

    I finally got around to replacing my raggedy 5.10 Water Tennies last year. I was hesitant to switch because I loved the 5.10 grip. I'm so glad I did.



    The Brewers are the grippiest shoes I've ever worn in the water. The new Stealth rubber is just as good as 5.10 rubber, and the solid construction means you won't need to be getting them resown constantly (I had my 5.10's stitched up twice in one year of use)



    I am incredibly tough on gear. I destroyed my 5.10s in less than 6 months, and throughout the last year I've put almost 200 river days on my Brewers, including many on a drysuit. The shoe is still in great shape, with only minor cosmetic wear and a small tear near the toebox. As a C1er, I put more pressure on my feet than a kayaker, and the Brewer is the only shoe I've found that can hold up to the abuse.



    10 thumbs up, would recommend!

    These Shoes Over-Deliver

    • Size Bought: 8

    I have to say, the first impression I had when pulling my new Brewers out of the box was they looked a bit flimsy, BUT after wearing these shoes for a few weeks I have now come to appreciate just how well designed and awesome this footwear is. Why?
    - I wear them (I have Brewers and Rasslers) to work, play, on river, at the lake, and on our hikes; they go anywhere
    - Inner sole is waaay comfortable and perfectly designed for both wet and dry environments
    - Outer sole really does have good traction on rock (wet or dry)
    - They dry surprisingly fast; I usually change shoes after paddling, and now my Astrals are almost dry by the time I finish putting the boats on the car.
    - They ARE light and flexible, but soooo NOT cheap, just minimal weight in a very durable package
    - I wear them to the office and am finding a LOT of people comment on how cool the Brewers look; casual and trendy (can't exactly pull that off with my neoprene booties...)

    Bottom line, I bought these shoes specifically for paddling, but they have quickly become my everyday go-to shoe. Definitely a very pleasant surprise.

    Greatest river shoe ever???

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

    What makes a great river shoe? Durability, support,comfort, and most of all a incredibly sticky sole. With 1000 denier bomb proof cordura outer for durability, ball and heel on a completely flat plane for amazing support, and greater toe rocker creating less opportunity for snagging your toe while walking, not to mention, much more comfort when wearing inside a kayak, the Brewer is already an amazing river shoe; However, what puts this shoe in the soul brother league of river gear is its unbelievable stickiness on wet, muddy, slimy surfaces. The soles simply don't slip. Astral calls its rubber compound Gss. the ss is for (super sticky). This description is spot on. whether portaging damp moss covered trees, steep slime covered rocks, or muddy mucky trails the grip has never failed me. Not sold yet? with fast drying upppers, and killer low profile looks, brewers can be your after river shoe as well. finally an added bonus brewers heel can fold down allowing you to wear the shoe as a slip on. You simply cannot go wrong with this shoe.

    i think these shoes have a lot going for them. the grip is amazing and it looks like they would have dried quickly too. my problem was that they destroyed my ankles on the outside after walking about a half mile. it probably wouldn't have been so bad if i'd worn higher or thicker socks but still, i want the option of barefoot comfort in a water shoe. i'm going to try either the loyaks or the rassler. wish they made the loyak with the higher grip sole. the low rating is only because of the ankle issue. they seemed great other than that.

    My favorite water shoes

    Brewers

    Sticky soles.
    If you are looking for a pair of water shoes with good grip, look no further. I have been a whitewater enthusiast my entire life and used many different shoes from different brands. I say with confidence that these shoes have the stickiest rubber in the market. Lately I have been exploring the rivers of the high sierras in California where there is lots of glacially polished granite. Many times I have had to traverse steep slabs of that granite to scout or portage dangerous rapids and each time the shoes have stuck to the rock like flypaper. I can’t say it enough, best grip out there.

    Other positives
    I really like the way the Brewers fit. The footbed offers good support while at the same time remaining very lower profile. They are very comfortable, so comfortable that I use them as my everyday shoes as well as my river shoes.

    Side note
    These shoes are pretty low profile and don’t offer much ankle support. If you are looking for something a little more rugged, you should check out the Astral Rasslers. Same grip, just more heavy duty.

    Must have water shoe.

    I have been a whitewater raft guide for 7 years on the Chattooga, Pigeon, and Nantahala. I've also kayaked all over the southeast. I have had my brewers for 3 years and absolutely love them. They hold up to daily abuse on the water better than any of the other shoe I have tried.

    The sticky rubber also gives me the ability to jump from rock to rock during rescues with confidence. A lot of brands like Teva, Keen, Nrs, Salomon claim to have sticky rubber soles but they can't hold a candle to Astrals rubber compound. Wearing shoes without sticky rubber on the river can lead to injuries and slow or failed rescue attempts. Time and time again my brewers have kept me out of danger and helped me rope in and save my friends and rafting customers.

    The customer service for Astral is second to none. I have had a few warranty issues with Astral throughout the years and they have far exceeded my expectations. I had a green jacket that was getting old and beat up after 5 seasons of rafting and kayaking. I mailed it back to Astral and they restuffed it with new flotation and all I had to pay was shipping. In my opinion Astral's customer service really goes above and beyond.

    Last but not least the brewers are comfortable and look great. I have a couple different models of astral shoes and when one is wet I wear the other around town. I definitely notice the ladies checking out my fresh kicks.

    I have put this shoe through it all and it stood strong. From first descents paddling in northern Canada to paddling in the jungles of Mexico it thrived! The shoes durability is superb and after one year of having them and wearing them almost everyday they are structural like they were the first day I bought them. The style is perfect for either wearing on the river, walking around downtown on the weekend, cruising around campus, or ripping it on your bike on your hometown trail. Fit is snug and true to size. Cannot explain simply how stoked I have been on the Astral Brewers since the beginning. Now quit reading and go ahead and just get you a pair!!!

    Best all around shoe i've ever owned

    I bought the brewers almost a year ago to replace my go-to water shoes which I used for years for kayaking and fly fishing. I had tevas and keens that I loved, and was a bit skeptical switching brands. After using the brewers for almost a year now, I cannot believe I ever wore anything else. The brewers have better traction on wet rocks than any shoe I have ever worn, they are far more comfortable, and they look so good I end up wearing them straight out of the river and into the bar. I will never get any other shoe.
