Why We Like The Astral Loyak Water Shoe

The Astral Loyak Water Shoe provides the right mix of grip, flexibility, and durability we need when guiding raft trips or kayaking technical rivers. The stitched Cordura upper is highly abrasion-resistant for durability, yet also breathable and quick-drying. The upper is also attached directly to the rubber outsole for a low-profile fit and enhanced feel underfoot. G.15 rubber helps us maintain our footing on slippery river beds and slick rocks, and flex grooves allow our foot to flex naturally.

Great show, wish they came in half sizes

I love the shoes. The low profile and minimalist feel is great. The one wish I have for the shoes is for them to come in half sizes. I ordered the 10 originally but was just ever so slightly too snug. Returned (which was very easy to do) for the 11 and they fit, but the 10.5 would be perfect. Other than that, I love them.

Minimalist footwear for everyday earth connection

My everyday shoe, washable after work or play, gives me the earth connection I need, keeps my feet and ankles limber, have 5 pair in rotation depending the color du jour!

Great show, perfect sizing

I’ve had trouble with the hemp line being too snug. However this is a perfect fit shoe just like all of the other Loyak M’s I own. Highly recommend

Perfect camp shoe.

these are perfect for around camp and the water. If you are someone who likes being barefoot but still like a little protection from rocks and sharp twigs.

Versatile and stylish

These are perfect if you appreciate a "foot shaped shoe" that respects your natural form. I originally bought the Loyak as a water shoe and quickly found they can be used casually just as often. The wider toe box allows my toes to spread out, and the level footbed feels natural while providing just enough cushion to keep me moving comfortably all day. I like the breathability and water readiness, and they fold up very small for travel. Versatile and stylish. Highly recommended!!!

no longer the great shoe they were.

I’m not impressed with these new made in China shoes. I have an old pair that were made in Vietnam and they are great. Unfortunately astral seems to have moved production over to china and these new loyak’s are way too narrow in the center, even for myself who has a narrow foot, and are just shaped very odd. The elastic opening around the ankle on the new shoes is very large and loose providing many openings for rocks/pebbles etc. to enter. The older design fit snug around the ankle. In short, these hurt my feet, they don’t fit well, and the quality has gone down. I had a similar experience with the new brewer’s also. Sorry astral, these are getting returned and I’ll unfortunately be searching for a new brand. Feeling let down…
