Flex Grip Outsole

This rubber allows excellent flexibility and sensory feedback for heightened grip and balance. Maximized surface area for high friction on smooth surfaces. Divided lugs for substantial grip on loose dirt. Razor Siping maximizes edges that bite into surfaces upon flexion. 

Water Ready

All Astral shoes have a special relationship with water. Every component, from the thread to the laces are critically evaluated and chosen for its ability to hold up after constant soaking, to shed water, and not to accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimizing entry of silt.

Balanced Geometry

We believe that a foot’s position in a shoe should be similar to when barefoot. This allows excellent balance and biomechanically natural lifestyle.

Foot-beds are essentially level (only 1mm drop from heel to toe ) and provide medium arch support.  Tapered instep and heel area for better foothold and control. Wide forefoot allows your feet and toes to spread out for stability.


This G compound is formulated for premium grip while also providing "excellent" abrasion resistance. Its low durometer means the rubber is softer and therefore conforms well to the ground.

  • Perfect For Life on the River

    I love my Loyak AC water shoes. I wear them for all my favorite river recreational activities including snorkeling, rafting, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and so much more. These are the best water shoes money can buy. The Astral Designs team even sent me a free pair of insoles after I mysteriously lost one of mine. Great company, great products!

  • Best SUP Shoe, Awesome Company

    June 14, 2021

    The Astral Loyak AC is cute, and is the best performing and most comfortable water shoe Ive found for paddle boarding. As a former exercise physiologist, an ultra runner and massage therapist, I make sure I always have the best shoe for my sport, feet and body for the long haul. My husband loves his mens Loyaks and life vest. Astral Designs makes great gear for the water and is a company that will treat you right.

  • Soooo comfy!

    May 19, 2021

    I bought these shoes for my study abroad where, and trying them on for the first time the comfort level was to the max. Really lightweight, soft, and breathable. The only thing i didn't realize before i tried them on is that without socks you can see your toes. Hiking i'd wear them with socks anyway, in water i probably wouldn't care, they are comfortable and i love the color so that's all that matters:) If you're alright with that, these shoes are wonderful.

  • Best sport shoe I ever bought

    May 10, 2021

    This is amazing for sailing, paddle boarding or any water sport. The only issue is how the laces always come undone. You need to put some sort of clamp on them to keep them from untying.

  • Absolutely LOVE these!!

    July 05, 2020

    These are so comfortable and lightweight. The traction is great for standing up on my paddle board and on walking on slick rocks. I love how quickly they dry out.
