Frequently Asked Questions

What is Astral’s warranty policy?

All of our products are guaranteed against any manufacturing defects. Please complete our Warranty form to get the process started.

What’s my size in Astral shoes?

Astral shoes tend to fit true to size when worn barefoot or with a thin sock. In general, you may want to consider going up 1/2 size to accommodate dry suit booties or a thick sock. Our shoes are designed to be narrow in the heel and mid foot, with a wide toe box. This allows the shoe to be low profile, but leaves room for your foot to spread out when carrying weight (a kayak). We consider any foot greater than E as possibly too wide for our shoes, however they do stretch out a bit after breaking them in.
When possible we suggest to try them on before purchase at your local Astral dealer.

So Comfortable

April 18, 2017

I purchased these shoes for my vacation to Belize. I travel to Hawaii and other humid climates and was looking forward to a closed toed shoe that provides moisture protection and comfort. This shoe is awesome! I've been wearing it around town to test the comfort and it is great. Read More Light weight and super comfortable. Feels like walking around barefoot with support... is that a thing? I can't wait to explore with these, and I have already talked my boyfriend into buying a pair for our trip. If you are looking for a lightweight travel shoe that can also be worn, for basically anything, this is your shoe!

Awesome shoes!

May 02, 2017

Love these! I feel comfortable and surefooted on wet trails, through mud, over slippery rocks, and more. It's amazing to get all this in a shoe that's also cute, lightweight, breathable, and less restrictive than my bulky hiking boots. They also dry fast when they get wet, which is a Read More big perk. Planning to make these my go-tos for summer/warm weather hiking and other outdoors activities.

The best multipurpose water shoe!

July 19, 2018

I just took my Astral's on a river trip where I was traversing rock in the river all day along with some light hiking. These performed amazing. I had been a Chaco wearer for a long time but I didn't love how they gave me blisters when I would Read More wear them all day wet and I didn't like the lack of toe protection. The Brewess was amazing out there! Toes protected, the grip was outstanding, and my feet were comfy and not blistered. Love love love! My husband wants some now.
