Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for Kayaking I bought these about a month ago to use with my kayak. The drain holes in the soles work great! The grip is exceptional and they are comfortable to wear for hours without socks. I do have to put them in the sun to dry quickly but I expected that. they do dry quicker than regular shoes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great looking water shoes just don't get them wet! I purchased these shoes about 4 weeks ago. I wore them around town twice and they were comfortable and very breathable. But the third time I wore them was out to the lake. I was on and off the boat into the water all day. That evening I removed the inserts and bent a metal coat hanger to go up into the toe of each shoe and hung the shoes to dry. The next day I went to put them back on "FYI they were still very wet" and the back insides of both shoes had started folding in on itself. Seriously to the point that the inserts wouldn't fit and my foot wouldn't fit into the shoe. They have a hard plastic support or something running up both sides of the shoe from your heel up to your ankle. Both supports on both shoes were buckled in. Now I have a pair of $100 closet ornaments. Do not buy, and if you do, do not get these WATER shoes wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to flip flops! i purchased these because I am tired of going through 2-3 pairs of flip flops every year. Very breathable, light weight, and comfortable. I used to gig in flip flops, but after 2-3 hours standing on the bow of the boat my lower back would start hurting, now I can gig for 5-6 hours before needing to sit down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lite water shoe Water shoes yes. But it's a shoe I wear all summer. Light weight to pack for trips and looks good with all my casual dress clothing. Cushioned thoughout, look forward to wearing them tomorrow because I can put them on quickly and have no need for socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This shoes got grip! This is by far the best shoe I have ever used for off shore fishing. It clings to the wet boat surface, and drys out quickly. The shoe is so comfortable on the inside there's no need for socks. I highly recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design This is a well thought-out, functional product. Great design with surprisingly good support. I especially like the lace-up system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent boat shoe & more This shoe does exactly what it says, plus some. These shoes gripped the wet boat deck and drained water as advertised. What I like most about them is they provide the support and feel of a more "athletic" shoe. The vents and mesh also make this a great hot-weather shoe even when not on a boat (they provide breath-ability). Because there is slightly more material then other boat shoes, they take a wee bit longer to dry out, but I really like these shoes. Great boat shoes and more.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Water shoes for Hawaii I thought these would be great to have when kayaking or exploring around the water. The functionality of these shoes are exactly what they are made for. They dont seem to dry any faster and retain sand a little more than I would like. I would like to have a little more comfort when not wearing socks with them. Overall, they are great for exploring near the ocean and water sports with good water drains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking for my second pair?! I got a pair of these about 8 months ago, I loved them so much I wanted to get another pair that I could wear casually/clean because my current pair has experienced every terrain you can think of. It is obvious that this is a successful product and should be available. What happened to your production of Drainmaker IIIs Columbia???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe for fishing! This is a great fishing shoe. The only con is that they are out of stock and I want to buy another pair for backup. Fits great and no socks are needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpasses all expectations, No socks permitted! I have thought about replacing all my shoes with these. I put these on as soon as I got home and it was a little tough with some clammy skin. After I had these on I didn't want to take them off! Very comfy, a little warm with no air movement while driving in a car, NO NEED FOR SOCKS! Be very careful in restaurants because of the floors may not be clean or could have soap residue. It was like ice in a few areas and was definitely a hazard. Beyond the restaurant, these are amazing and I recommend these to everyone for anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Fisherman A Salesman at the Columbia Store in Pigeon Forge told me about these "Fishing Shoes"...as soon as I heard about them I knew my Grandson would want a pair. My Grandson is 16 and fishes everyday. Together we looked them up online, picked out the ones he liked and placed our order. He was thrilled to received them after a few days, and was anxious to try them. He loves them. He's worn them everyday, to school, to church, and of course fishing. I know this is a product that I can trust, and will probably be ordering them again, as soon as He wears these out...Haa. Thanks for making my grandson a "Happy Fisherman"....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wet shoe I ever bought. I have problems with feet so I rarely have anything good to say about my shoes. I have arch problems and pad problems. So here it goes: I just got back from a weeklong hiking trip on the island of Dominica. I originally purchased these to traverse just the river crossings and then change back into my hiking shoes. It didn't work out that way; once they were on they stayed on. I crossed rivers, hiked mountains, did wet rock scrambles, dry rock scrambles. Walked on gravel, sand, mud, concrete, cobble stones, lava flows .... They totally performed way better than expected. Water drained out fast and my feet never felt better. A simple walk in the water was all it took to wash away any accesive mud or sand and a quick shaking knocked sand out of any of the drain pores. I never had a breakin period either. I am so happy with them I bought another pair. Simply, my feet felt great wearing these
