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; 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, shed water, and not accumulate funk. Many models have engineered drainage for water to come out while minimizing entry of silt.

Balanced Geometery

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.

G15

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

    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

    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.
