Portage 3mm Neoprene Shoe

Weeds, rocks, branches, and stumps line the route to and from your choice creeks, rivers, lakes, and beaches, so Kokatat gave the new Portage Neoprene Shoe a sturdy insert and grippy outsole. And since you're main goal is to keep your feet warm when you're in the cockpit, Kokatat crafted the Portage shoe with three-millimeter double-lined neoprene.
  • Covered lace design utilizes a zippered flap to eliminate snags from rocks, twigs, or other gear
  • Vulcanized heel and toe cap offer protection
  • Fiberboard insert in the rubber outsole offers stability while walking on uneven surfaces
  • Item #KOK0132

Too hard to get on and off

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I ordered both a size 9 and 10 for me and hubby. Neither size fit hubby because he has a high arch and there is no zipper on these - he couldn't get them on. The 9 fit me (true to size) the way I like - snug, so that when they get water in them they won't be loose. They were not easy to get on, but doable. Wore them for a few hours on a paddle but when I tried to get them off they were pretty much suctioned on. Needed help to remove them. Then, my toes were sore on the TOP all night - the toes caps pressed down too much. Have returned them (thanks Backcountry - you rock!) and ordered NRS booties with a zipper :-).

Sent the wrong size.

The size too small they sent me is too narrow and too long. Not sure where kokatat gets their sizing from but definitely not looking at a standard human foot and adhering to any standards in sizes. Also backcountry.com doesn't have live chat the window just closes.

Perfect for kneeling canoe paddling

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I normally wear a size 7.5-8, but took a chance on a size 7 based on reviewer comments. The size 7 is still a little big, but I'm sticking with them. Since I kneel in my canoe to paddle, I can't have anything on the top of my ankle. I haven't used these on our cold Vt lakes yet (hello, February it's -40* some nights). But I did test them in a tub of cold water. I think they're going to be just what I need. Very excited for spring now!
