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.

  • Best flats ever

    I own two pairs and am waiting on black to be in stock for a third. I wear them to work almost every day. Super comfortable, durable, versatile.

    July 30, 2018

    I work a job where I have to hop across wet rocks all day and hiking boots just dont cut it. I bought these and they are FANTASTIC! Im confident that I want slip.

  • The perfect summer shoe

    March 28, 2018

    I've been looking for a lightweight, durable, more minimal, but interesting pair of shoes and these fit my foot rather perfectly. I have a wide forefoot and generally Mary Janes will be too tight. These however are roomy in the toe box and allow my yoga toes to spread and move. They are reminiscent of black tai chi shoes, but with great cushioning and grip. I think a red pair might be next up.

  • Love at first sight

    February 16, 2018

    I saw the Mary Jay advertised, fell in love immediately, viewed the video on the web site, just HAD to purchase. I AM TOTALLY SOLD on these shoes. I bought the red (in 2 sizes, keeping them both), going to buy the black. I will wear down to the last thin fabric holding it together.

  • Best Work shoe ever

    June 28, 2017

    I have slowly been replacing all of my uncomfortable work shoes with incognito comfortable shoes. These shoes are perfect! I get so many compliments on them, and when I tell people about them, they can't believe they aren't just regular mary janes. I live in Florida where it rains a lot and destroys shoes, so the quick drying fabric keeps me from ending up with soggy shoes and cold feet all day. The grip on the bottom also helps on rainy streets (I walk a half mile to work). They are now my go to work shoe because they are so comfortable to wear all day. I like them so much, I plan on buying them in another color!

  • best shoe ever

    I have had these for years and they are so comfortable and versatile; it's all I ever want to wear. They are holding up great. I wore them for a season of kayak tours in salt water and am now wearing them to work at a restaurant. I have flat, wide feet and these are cute and so comfortable. I see you don't have them in many sizes now... PLEASE keep making these!!!! Even though I don't need new ones, I want to buy more when the time comes.

  • I adore these shoes

    April 18, 2016

    I own two pair, the red and the black. I wear them almost every day and in every situation (except they haven't been in the water, yet). They are fine at work with dressier clothes and I even wear them with a skirt on occasion. After six months of nearly daily wear, they have not shown even a little bit of wear. I love the wide toe box that doesn't come with a wide heel, as well. Perfect for my special needs feet. Would love some tan or solid blue ones to wear with all my clothes!

  • MaryJane Shoes

    June 03, 2017

    I've had these for about two months. I like them, yet they run rather narrow. I put heavy rocks in the toes for a few days and they were better. Perhaps they just need a longer period to stretch front of the foot (toes). I normally wear an 9.5 got a 10, yet they're tight so far.

    Yes, they are cute. On my foot however, they do not run true to size. I am usually an 8, and the 8 left me with toes tight to the front. 8.5 leaves me with an extra xtra inch in the front which pushes my foot back with an inevitable toe cleavage showing. That, is not cute. So sadly, I must return.
