Did not anticipate how much I would love these!

April 23, 2018

I have both hiking boots and water shoes, so I assumed that this shoe would be a compromise in function for both categories - but they are not at all! These are both great water shoes: light and airy it is while still having a firm, grippy protective sole. Well Read More done, Astral - this is a very well designed shoe that's ideal for spring river running, canoeing, and warmer weather hiking/backpacking. Doesn't hurt that it looks really cool too :) 100% true to size. Great balance of lightness, protection, quick-drying, and swag!

Great Hiking Shoe

December 14, 2017

I wore these shoes for a full season of hiking, and loved them. They're light weight, very breathable, and they dry out faster than any other pair of hiking shoes I've owned. The fact that the water easily drains out the front of the shoe is great for Read More fording streams. There was also no break-in period. I had no problem with rubbing or blisters as these shoes are so light on the feet. They also have great tread which really grips rocks and makes it feel safe to be scrambling on slippery rocks and roots.
