Rated 5 out of 5 by water drain shoe Another excellent product. boyfriend loves them very comfortable! August 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Drainmaker 3 The product is a fantastic cross between hiking shoe and water shoe. It worked great for portaging thru Algonquin Park. From my experience with this product I could have used a little more hiking support in the shoe. Looking forward to seeing further development in this product line. Keep up the great work Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe My husband wanted a lightweight shoe that could get wet and dry quickly. It also needed to be comfortable. This shoe was both. Very happy with it! June 19, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointed by the newer version I have an earlier version of the Columbia watershoes from a few years ago. One of my favourite pairs of runners: light, comfortable, lasted forever. The newer Drainmaker lll is a disappointing evolution. Heavier and "clunkier" in all respects. I wanted something light for the beach and the boat. If I wanted a heavier and more durable trail shoe, I would have bought one. May 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than any typical water-shoe, hands down. After being fed up with generic, cheap water-shoes, being the fan of Columbia that I am, I decided to purchase a pair of the Drainmaker III's. Where I live, the beaches are very rocky and littered with shells and it's unbearably painful to walk on them barefoot. These are great because if I go in the water and come out, most of the large shells and rocks will drain out, along with water (if they even get in to the shoe in the first place, since they fit nicely around my ankles) - While every water-shoe I've used could not even do as simple of a thing as drain water. I used these for sailing as well as I had always used sneakers (because they have nice grip on the wet boat surfaces), but these are better because they have the same design and grip of a sneaker and I don't have to trash my shoes that aren't made to take the salt-water. It's as simple as hosing them down at the end of the day so that they stay fresh and don't get disgusting. Once again, I love all of my products from you guys at Columbia and I definitely recommend these to anyone who meets the same circumstances for use as the ones that I've just mentioned. May 14, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shoe, but not for my foot. I know it's a bit weird to recommend a shoe that didn't work out for me - but I still will. I bought this shoe for a trip to the Philippines, where I would be constantly in and out of boats/beaches for 5 weeks. I bought a size 11, when I'd normally wear a 10.5 - and the fit was great paired with a very thin wool sport sock. I walked 10000-15000 steps each day in these, in and out of the water - for the entire 5 weeks. They performed really well, and dried quicker and cleaner than any other shoe I've ever owned. The only downside, was that both shoes started to develop holes near where the pinky toe would meet the edge of the shoe - right near to where the seem meets the sole. Over time the holes got bigger, about 1.5-2" - right along the seam. Not sure why it happened, as I don't have wide feet - but it must've been a fluke, no one else has had an issue like mine. CS took care of everything, thanks guys. February 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoes Very breathable. The shoes can keep my shoes dry and cool. I like them very much. January 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Water Shoe Great shoe for beach, boating or fishing. Fast Dry. December 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishing guide seal of approval I am a fishing guide in Florida and have put these shoes through everything you can imagine... saltwater, harsh sun, long hours on a boat & frequent visits to the washing machine have barely done a thing to ruin these bad boys. I will admit that when I received my first pair I was concerned over the light weight "feel" in the way that they were constructed. Needless to say my concerns were unwarranted as these shoes have held up very well. Because of the long hours standing on a boat, my greatest concern in looking for proper footwear was whether or not it would help in alleviating lower back pain. As any boater knows, standing for long periods of time on a rocking boat can wreak havoc on your lower back. Once again these shoes have proven their worth. The lower back pain I've had while wearing other brands and styles of shoe is nearly non-existent with the Drainmakers. Another great function of these shoes is their breathability. Guiding in the hot Florida sun is murder on the feet and these shoes have kept my feet dry and comfortable in even the most horrid of Florida summer days. I would highly recommend the Drainmaker to anyone that boats, fishes, kayaks or just likes to spend alot of time in or near the water. November 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Favorite water sport shoes I'm a kayak angler so water shoes are a must. These by far are my favorite! Fits great, water drains out quickly and I can wear them with normal clothes when not kayaking. November 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Men's Drainmaker 3 Review Most comfortable casual shoe I have had. Soft material is comfortable and conforms to your foot. No hard edges or surfaces to cause abrasion as can be common in this shoe type. I wear a 13 and I find many competitor's 13 shoes a bit tight. These fit my feet perfectly. I get requent comments from people about how sharp the shoes are - and the great colours - but the best thing is that they are COMFORTABLE. October 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Drainmaker III Love these shoes so much I don't want to get them wet. They are great looking, comfortable and COOL. When I walk into an air conditioned room I can feel the cool through the shoes. I generally wear a 13 wide. Bought these in 13 and they fit well. I would make this purchase again. September 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best water shoe I can find so far! I bought these and the Men’s Megavent Shoe while there was a great sale going on here. I wanted to try several of their water shoes. The only other difference between the two are the removable inserts. Men’s Megavent Shoe one has a solid round foam insert where your bottom of your heal goes. I like the way the string is more and I hate tieing shoes. Altho this pair is my new "go to summer shoes". They are much more comfortable on the top of the foot/toe area because of the softer fabric against the skin. I do not wear socks and hate wearing shoes and prefer flip-flops or bare feet, so I won't wear socks until it gets cold enough for them. I should say some thing to Columbia about the problem, but I think they already know. I wish there was a store to try these things on before buying and still get the great price break. They should use the other shoe with the string and insoles from this shoe and make one great shoe. These are like pillows compared to what I normally wear and great feeling support. Columbia asked me to write a review and they are only about one week old. I bought a boat load of their goods on sale and some haven't had a chance to be used yet. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best water shoe out there!!!! I got my first pair of Columbia water shoes 6 years ago and now they are the only water shoe I will buy. I still wear my first pair even though the rubber on the bottom is almost warn through. They work great and last. August 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by my first Columbia shoes I really liked the way the shoe looked, and the tech/principal of the heavy ventilation. I am really happy to say they feel great, very comfortable , look great, very competitive price. I'm sure they won't be my last pair. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Legit shoe... This shoe fits and wears like a running shoe. Extremely comfortable with a bit more support than your average running shoe. Very light. Easy addition to my pack. I use them for fishing, canoeing, hiking (light, short distance), rock climbing, swimming. Doesn't dry quite as fast as I thought it would (about a day in sunlight/85% humidity or about a half hour hanging out the car window ;D ), but it drains excess water very well (and fast) and wears well even when damp. No blisters which is no. 1 !!! Overall a great shoe. Thank you, Columbia... p.s. fits true to size, but if you're in between a size 12 and 13 like me, go ahead and the the 12. Its roomy enough even with socks. Ha! July 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Shoe These are great shoes ,fit comfortably ,very little breaking in process and they are very light ,excellent every day sneaker. May 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good shoe, wet or dry. nice street and leisure shoe, but great at beach, river, or lake. Comfortable and good arch support. Made for Idaho's wild rivers, and brew pubs!! May 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shoe This is a great shoe for wearing on and around the boat. I run fishing charters and I can stay on my feet all day in these with no worries at all. May 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe! I was looking for a fishing shoe that would work in the boat and that would provide foot protection . . . and stay on . . . when it was necessary to wade or push the boat over shallow spots, etc. This shoe does a great job of accomplishing both! April 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for aqua fitmess: higly recommended I use this for aqua fitness 3-5 times a week and am completely satisfied: light weight, dries fast and provide a little bit of ascending force in water, which helps in deep water aqua training. Only a minor issue is that you need to have double knot for a long training in water. March 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoe Very comfortable. Fits to your feet like a glove. March 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Drainmaker III Ordered my 2nd pair of Drainmakers....first pair were the Drainmaker II and now the Drainmaker III. Great fit and perfect for kayak fishing and water sports in general. I wanted my shoes to be slightly snug for peddling my kayak and not too big so I took a chance and ordered according to the size chart and not what I normally wear...size 11. They fit and feel awesome...great quality, fit and comfortable to the point to where I now use them as casual shoes while walking or working outside March 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love! Just would like to say, I love these shoes. I literally wear a pair everyday! Super comfy, lightweight, and fantastic grip on the soles make them a great shoe for boats and kayak decks. February 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Vacation Shoes Took these shoes to Playa Del Carmen for a week and they were great. In and out of the water all of the time they held up very well and dried very quickly. I also wore them to travel on the plane to and from there, as well as around town at night (with socks). These are pretty much the most versatile tennis shoes I've ever owned. February 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love em I'm very impressed. Super comfortable and they actually drain very well. Ordering a second pair. January 22, 2015
