Marine Grip Outsole

Maximum sole-to-surface contact for highest friction on smooth surfaces like boat docks, rafts, tile floors. Razor-Siping increases quantity of edges that “bite” into a surface. Thin profile provides excellent feedback, and enhances grip and balance.

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.

  • My new favorite shoe!

    June 24, 2019

    I absolutely love these shoes. I've had them for a couple of years now and they are my go-to summer shoe when flip flops just are gonna cut it. They are great with jeans, shorts and super cute with dresses. I love how lightweight and quick drying they are as well. Every time I wear them I get compliments on how cute they are. I would highly recommend these to any outdoor adventure woman!

  • Everyday, all day!

    October 13, 2017

    I bought these at the end of season last year so I didn't get much use out of them before the snow flew. I have wore them almost non stop this spring and summer and absolutely love how light they are, how wide they are and the venting they have for those hot days! I now want to purchase the grey ones!

    I own several pairs of Astral shoes but these are by far my favorite for everyday life and adventures. Grocery store, hiking, biking, surfing, datenight... these shoes are versatile.

  • Perfect Porter

    May 09, 2016

    The porter is my favorite kick around Astral shoe. I find myself wearing this shoe with a cute jean skirt when cruising around town, running errands or going to bbqs. I have also used it on a fishing/floating booze cruise it worked out nicely although it does not dry as fast as the other water shoes and it and has less breathability. This is the perfect shoe for a first date, a walk on the beach or an impromptu ultimate Frisbee game at the park. I give this shoe 5 stars because it transcends the expectations and practicality of the other shoes of this style.

  • Super cushy and cute!

    May 07, 2019

    Bought a pair last year (2018)... Super soft but sticky. Better suited to casual wear and boatwear than heavy lifting and all-day guide boat schlepping so I mostly wore my TR-1 Junctions rather than these on the river for the mid-shank support. These ran big in 2018- size down a half size unless they've changed sizing! Cute and comfy boat shoes though, like walking on marshmallow fluff or wearing your favorite slippers (but nonslip)!
