Best water shoes for women?

With our foundation in extreme whitewater, our water shoes are a critical piece of equipment for safety in wet environments. They have to stick like tar, drain and dry fast, offer balance and agility, and can’t get stinky. Astral water shoes are known for their versatility out of the water, and make a great everyday shoe. We have specific designs and colors and make an amazing women’s hiking water shoe.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I return items?

Yes! You can return unused items in their original packaging for a refund. We ask that all items be kept in new condition with tags attached.  Please fill out the Returns Form and we'll reply with a return authorization number and instructions!  

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.

Amazing shoes!!

November 22, 2017

I absolutely love these shoes. Ive lived in the tropics for the last 7 years and pretty much live in sandalsunless Im running. But after moving back to a climate with winter, I needed to get some shoes. Im so glad I chose the loyak. They fit greatsuper comfortable with Read More or without socks. They really give you a great feel for the terrain under your foot while still providing comfortable cushion. They are great for all sorts of activitieshiking, walking on rocks, bouldering, slacklining, and just walking around town. When I first got them, I literally wanted to think of places to walk to just so I could wear the shoesnow I wear nothing else!!

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 Read More for those hot days! I now want to purchase the grey ones!
