Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! Bought these for a trip where I knew I was going to be in the water about 30% of the time. I never intended on wearing the them 100%, but they were so comfortable I did. The Vibrams soles have grip for days. I did a lot of scrambling with them and they never slipped. They are great in the water as well; great wet traction. They drain perfectly. The only con I have is that they take a while to dry. I was in 110 degree heat and it was taking upwards of an hour to dry completely. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT GRIP I bought these shoes for the grip and light weight. I have worn them on 4 Zion canyoneering trips (subway twice, spry, and pine creek). plus another 100 miles of hiking. I don't care for the five-ten canyoneering shoe - I wanted a low top light weight shoe with as good a grip as the five-ten. And I found it with this shoe! The only cons: 1# The outside of the shoe were my small toe is, the netting is breaking loose #bought them a little bigger to keep from losing toenaills from the downhills). They need to put more reinforcement there from abraision. 2) The sole around the front of the toe is coming unglued on the left shoe. They need a better adhesive. The cons don't out weigh the pros and I will get another pair when these wear out. June 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Slot Canyons Beware These shoes are awesome, they worked spectacularly for hiking in slot canyons and around the camp site and any where. The first hike I did with them was the the 16 mile Narrows at Zion National Park. These shoes gripped the rock and I never slipped once. Comfortable for long hikes and everyday use! Only complaint is they let in a lot of sand and I had to wash the shoes out a couple times on the Narrow hike and the loop that is supposed to be used to help you put the shoes on ripped out. But great shoes and would buy them again. June 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by drainage is a plus these shoes are great for kicking around the yard or what they were intended for. I use them for kayak trips and they work well enough but they could dry faster on your feet. I thought the black color would make them hot like my scuba booties but there is plenty of ventilation in these shoes. they also offer plenty of grip on slick boat ramps and muddy landing areas.
